The gas pipeline from Algeria to Spain suffers a temporary decrease in its flow rate due to maintenance works

The gas supply between Algeria and Spain has been temporarily reduced this Sunday due to maintenance works in the Medgaz marine gas pipeline, Enagás has informed, which has specified that there has not been a cut in the supply at any time.

The Algerian company Sonatrach issued a statement this midday informing of “a temporary interruption of gas supply to Spain” due to a breakdown on the Spanish side of the Medgaz pipeline.

“Spanish technical teams are working hard to carry out the necessary repairs to restore gas supplies to Spain as soon as possible,” Sonatrach said in the statement.

However, Enagas sources have indicated that “at no time has the flow of gas” reaching Spain from Algeria via Medgaz been interrupted.

Enagás has explained that “this noon, according to information received from Medgaz, during some routine maintenance work at the Beni Saaf Compression Station, there has been a momentary cessation, lasting two hours, of the flows” leaving from the Algerian plant to the international connection in Almería.

“This has caused a decrease – but not a cessation – in the flows entering Spain through the said international connection. The problem has been solved and the flows are recovering normally,” says the company, which has specified that the minimum flow has been 704,000 Nm3h.
