Russia resumes gas flow through key pipeline to Germany.

Gas began flowing early Thursday through a pipeline that normally supplies more than a third of Germany’s needs as well as essential gas supplies to some European partners.

The pipeline, Nord Stream 1, has been offline since July 11 for scheduled annual maintenance. But amid tensions between Moscow and Europe over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, many on the continent fear that Russia won’t then resume gas flows.

A spokesman for Nord Stream AG, the company that manages the pipeline, said that gas began flowing early Thursday. It will take several hours before it reaches the 30% capacity that Gazprom, Russia’s state-owned energy giant, has booked through the pipeline.
