Denmark temporarily stops gas production at its largest field

Due to reconstruction of facilities, the Danish authorities decided to temporarily suspend gas production at their largest field.  During the repair of facilities, Copenhagen will purchase fuel from other countries.  This is reported by the NaftoRynok.

It is noted that gas for the period of stopping production at the field will be purchased from Germany, which initially comes from Russia, Norway, or the Netherlands.

Denmark produces most of the gas in the Tyra field.  Production at this field is now dangerous: mining platforms have subsided; their reconstruction will take three years.  The costs of the necessary work will amount to 21 billion kroons (about $3.11 billion).

Earlier it was reported that Denmark had given the first license for the construction of the Baltic Pipe pipeline, which would supply Norwegian gas to Poland.
