Germany fully approves Nord Stream 2 laying
Germany has approved the construction and operation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, its operator and the German maritime authority said.
The Nord Stream 2 operator said it expected that other four countries along the route of the undersea gas pipeline – Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark – will issue permits in the coming months.
The scheduled construction works are to be implemented in 2018 as planned," Reuters cited the statement as saying.
Germany’s maritime authority BSH said in a statement that it had approved the building of the 31-kilometre section that runs through its waters since it posed no danger to shipping or the environment.”
