Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Moscow had yet to receive a proper explanation about the status of a Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline turbine serviced by Siemens Energy (ENR1n.DE) in Canada.

Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that the turbine had not yet arrived, but that it would be placed “sooner rather than later” more info

On Monday, Russian gas giant Gazprom (GAZP.MM) said it had received turbine documentation, but that some faults and hazards remained.

When Russia reduced gas deliveries through Nord Stream 1 to Germany to 40% capacity in June, it blamed the delay on the turbine. Gapzrom announced on Monday that flows would be cut in half starting Wednesday, to barely 20%, due to the need to shut down another turbine.
