New application for gas pipeline route in Danish waters applied
Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, has filed a third application to Denmark regarding the route of the gas pipeline in the waters south of Bornholm, the company said in a statement.
"The third application, together with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), covers a route in the Danish exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the waters south of Bornholm," the company added.
According to the statement, the application and the EIA have been submitted in accordance with the decision made by the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) on March 26, 2019.
"The EEZ border between Poland and Denmark was previously disputed and therefore the area was not available for any project developer," TASS cited the operator as saying.
The agreement was reached between the two countries, but has not yet been ratified by Poland.
