The TASS news agency reported that the pumping of Russian gas through the Turkish Stream gas pipeline was suspended for a week from June 21 to 28 for periodic preventive maintenance.

Repair work was carried out on the Turkish Stream line from June 22 to 29 last year.
It is noteworthy that the Blue Stream line was put into operation in 2003, and its throughput capacity is 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
As for the Turkish Stream, it includes two gas pipelines, one to Turkey and the other to the southern European countries.
It has a total capacity of 31.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year and was put into operation in January 2020.
