London — Russian gas flows to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline and via Ukraine remained steady on Friday, operator data showed.

Russia cut flows on the pipeline to only 20% of capacity on July 27, citing maintenance work.

Eastbound gas flows via the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Poland from Germany were up from the previous day, data from operator Gascade showed.
Exit flows at the Mallnow metering point on the German border were 5,673,108 kWh/h at 0800-0900 CET on Friday morning, up from more than 4,900,000 kWh/h for most of Thursday.
