Gazprom forcibly cut the imported equipment
Gazprom had to face the forced shutdown of Austrian LMF compressors by the manufacturer and will now replace them with the Russian ones.
- The compressors "are dead weight, they don't work yet," explained Pavel Krylov, head of one of the company's departments. "He is disconnected remotely via satellite, he has just become a wrecker," he added.
- Subsequently, Gazprom specified that the accident occurred in 2012, the compressors were turned off at the "branch facility". Due to the accident, the development of similar domestic appliances began on the company's initiative.
- The mobile compression stations have been used in Gazprom branches since 2010, the company said. Without compressors, since a source close to it refers to RBC, the pressure in the gas transmission network decreases and also the efficiency decreases.
