June 20 (Reuters) - Flows of Russian gas to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline were slightly higher on Monday morning, موقع كورة ستار while deliveries via Ukraine remained steady and eastward flows on the Yamal-Europe pipeline fell compared to last week, operator data showed.

Physical flows to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline across the Baltic Sea stood at 30,282,592 kilowatt hours per hour (kWh/h) by 0740 GMT, their highest levels since June 16, operator company information showed.

Flows were also slightly exceeding nominations or requests for gas, which were at 29,284,539 kWh/h.

Still, flows remain at just 40% of capacity, with Russian gas producer Gazprom last week announcing a curtailment to 67 million cubic metres (mcm) per day, which equates to around 30,414,741 kWh/h, due to the delayed return of equipment being serviced by Germany's Siemens Energy in Canada.

The pipeline will also undergo regular annual maintenance from July 11 to July 21, when there are usually no flows.

Supply to Europe through Ukraine via the Sudzha entry point was seen at 41.7 mcm on Monday, unchanged from levels on Sunday, Gazprom said.

Nominations for gas flows into Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point stood at 36.8 mcm per day, unchanged from Sunday, data from the Ukrainian transmission system operator showed.

Eastbound gas flows via the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Poland from Germany fell over the weekend, data from the Gascade pipeline operator showed.

Exit flows at the Mallnow metering point on the German border with Poland stood at 1,626,633 kWh/h on Monday morning, up slightly from weekend levels of around 1,250,000 kWh/h but down from Friday's flows of around 5,100,000 kWh/h, the data showed.
