Earlier this month, Gazprom announced it had detected an oil leakage on equipment during Nord Stream 1 maintenance work and would not be able to resume flows. It set no timeframe for fixing the problem.

Last week, Gazprom said it had signed an agreement to start switching payments for gas supplies to China to yuan and rubles instead of dollars.
