It has been reported that the repair of the Balticconnector pipeline, which provides the natural gas flow between Finland and Estonia and was closed on October 8 due to an unusual pressure drop and leak, will take at least 5 months. In the statement made by the Finnish system operator Gasgrid, it was reminded that an unusual pressure drop was detected in the pipeline on October 8.

In the statement, it was stated that the valves were closed after the drop was noticed, and said, “The unusual pressure drop has led to a reasonable suspicion that there is a leak caused by the damage to the marine gas pipeline. The gas leak caused by the damage detected in the pipeline section was stopped by isolating the section and closing the valves.” The statement was included. In the statement, it was emphasized that the gas transmission between Finland and Estonia was interrupted and the following was noted:

“According to preliminary estimates of experts, the actual repair works, including planning of repair works, mobilization of the necessary underwater equipment, and inspection and commissioning of the repaired pipeline section, are expected to take at least five months. Therefore, the earliest possible date of commissioning the pipeline is April 2024.” “The Finnish gas system is stable and gas supplies from the Inko LNG terminal are secure.”
