Gazprom: 34% of Nord Stream-2 laid in Baltic Sea
The Nord Stream 2 AG has laid more than 830 kilometers, or 34%, of the Nord Stream-2 natural gas pipeline on the bed of the Baltic Sea, Russian gas giant Gazprom said in a statement.
The combined length of the two threads of the pipeline should exceed 1,200 kilometers, the Prime new agency reported.
The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Gazprom is implementing the project together with Germany’s E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, and France’s Engie.
