Nord Stream 2 - 75% complete

The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is 75% complete, project operator Nord Stream 2 AG said in a statement.

"A total of 1,855 kilometres of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline were laid along the bottom of the Baltic Sea in the waters of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Germany. This is about 75% of the total length of the two legs. Thus, Nord Stream 2 AG proceeded to laying the final quarter of the pipeline," the statement reads.

It was noted that construction of both legs of the pipeline has been completed in the waters of Germany and Finland. Pipe laying is continuing in the territorial waters of Russia. Construction work on coastal sections in Germany and Russia is at an advanced stage.
