An explosion occurred in the Urengoi-Pomary-Uzhhorod gas export pipeline that carries gas from Russia’s northwestern Siberia through Ukraine, the RBC media group reported, citing local officials.
Local officials reported on the Telegram messaging app that one person was injured and that the flow of gas through the section of pipeline was cut off as of 1:50 p.m. (12:50 Greek time).
Chuvashia’s regional Emergencies Ministry said the pipeline was damaged near the village of Kalinino, about 150 km west of the Volga city of Kazan, and that the fire was now out. According to the same source, the pipeline explosion occurred during scheduled maintenance work.
The pipeline, which carries gas to Europe from the Russian Arctic, was built in the 1980s. It enters Ukraine through the Sudzha metering point, which is now the main route for Russian gas reaching Europe.
State gas producer Gazprom and its local subsidiaries did not so far respond to requests for comment.
Gazprom said earlier today that it expects to send 43 million cubic meters of gas to Europe via Ukraine via Sudzha in the next 24 hours, a volume similar to that of the past few days.
After news of the explosion, the price of natural gas in Europe jumped to $1,200 per 1,000 cubic meters, TASS reports.
The Tribulation is commencing..
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
