LONDON, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Eastbound gas flows via the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Poland from Germany stopped on Monday, whereas Russian gas flows via Ukraine remained stable and the Nord Stream 1 pipeline remained shut.

Exit flows at the Mallnow metering point on the German border fell to zero between 0600 CET and 0700 CET from 667,375 kWh/h an hour earlier, the data showed.

Nominations, or requests for gas, to Poland at Mallnow stood at 243,833 kWh/h on Monday, lower than 340,833 kWh/h in the previous day.

Nominations for Russian gas into Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point stood at 36.9 million cubic metres (mcm), unchanged from the previous day, Ukrainian transmission system data showed.

Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM) said it will ship 42.4 million cubic metres of gas to Europe via Ukraine on Monday, a volume unchanged from recent days. read more

Gas flows via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which crosses the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, remained at zero.

The pipeline was shut on Aug. 31 for what was supposed to be three days of maintenance, but has not reopened, with Moscow blaming supply disruptions on Western sanctions and technical issues.
