MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Balticconnector gas pipeline that was damaged in early October is expected to resume operation on April 22, the Gasgrid Finland operator said on Thursday.
"The planned commissioning date of the gas connection is April 22, 2024, provided that the soon-to-be-started repair works can be carried out as planned. According to the current assessment, icy conditions do not prevent the work from being carried out," the operator said in a statement.

The Balticconnector is a 77 km long bi-directional natural gas pipeline between Ingå, Finland, and Paldiski, Estonia. The structure was officially launched in 2020.
