A giant torch has been blazing at the Russian compressor station near the Finnish border since mid-June.

Finns living near the Russian border have been watching the burning of a giant torch near the Portovaya compressor station of the Gazprom concern for several weeks now, writes a Finnish publication Yle.

Ari Laine, a resident of the city of Hamina, saw flames blazing above the trees at the end of July during a trip to Lanskeri Island.

Journalists studied satellite images of the NASA fire monitoring system and found out that the flame has not been extinguished since June 17th. Finland has not received natural gas from Russia since May, as it refused to pay for fuel in rubles, as demanded by the Kremlin.

Flaring means the controlled and deliberate destruction of natural gas. Gasum representative Olga Väisyanen explained that it is used in certain situations related to gas production and transportation.

“If, for example, there were problems at the LNG terminal or biogas plant, then you may have to resort to flaring, for example, to maintain constant pressure in a gas reservoir,” she said.

On May 17, Finland refused to pay Gazprom in rubles, as Moscow demands. In this regard, Gasum also warned its customers about the high risk of cutting off gas supplies from Russia.

In late March, Vladimir Putin issued a decree obliging “unfriendly countries” to pay for the supplied energy resources in rubles. After that, nine buyers of Russian gas in Europe refused to switch to payment in rubles.

As reported, at the end of July, Gazprom stopped natural gas supplies to Latvia, accusing the country of violating the terms of fuel selection.
