The gas supply from Algeria to Spain through the Medgaz pipeline has not been interrupted at any time despite registering a specific breakdown this Sunday, sources from the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge confirmed to Efe this Sunday.
The Algerian hydrocarbons company Sonatrach reported today in a statement of a "temporary" interruption of the gas supply to Spain and clarified that the Spanish technical teams were working intensely to carry out the necessary repairs.
However, Enagás sources have explained to Efe that the supply has not been interrupted at any time and that the incident has only forced maintenance work for about two hours.
At noon, during routine maintenance work at the Beni Saaf Compression Station in Medgaz, the flows from the plant in Argelia to the Almería International Connection temporarily ceased.
This has caused a decrease, but not an interruption, in the flows entering Spain through said international connection; On the Spanish side, add the same sources, there has been no effect on the security of supply.
Sources from the Ministry of Ecological Transition point out that the ruling has caused a drop in input flows of 200,000 Nm3/h, down to 704,000 Nm3/h.
But at no time has it been interrupted, they point out from Enagás, and the activity has already been restored and normalized, the same sources point out.
