Named the factors influencing the completion dates of Nord Stream – 2


    The timing of the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline can be estimated after the United States imposes new sanctions, said Ryan Seele, head of the Austrian oil and gas company OMV.

    “The question is what other sanctions will be adopted. In this case [после объявления санкций] the consortium will be able to assess what time delays are possible in this regard. Of course, what sanctions will be imposed and how Europe will respond is of great importance, ”Zele quotes TASS.

    He also noted that Nord Stream 2 needs not only political support, but also from the side of the gas pipeline construction contractors.

    “We need clear support from companies that not only provide financing, but also from companies that received orders for supplies or work under this project. Because a large number of companies in Europe that were able to make good money, in particular, those that participated in the laying of the pipe, ”Seele said.

    According to him, large investments made in Nord Stream 2 should not be in jeopardy.

    Seele previously stated that the Nord Stream 2 operator Nord Stream 2 AG plans to complete the project in late 2020 – early 2021.

    State Duma Energy Committee Chairman Pavel Zavalny said that currently blocking the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is probably not a priority for the United States, especially now that Moscow and Washington must act together.
    The Foreign Ministry said that while discussing the “Russian energy weapons”, the US openly seeks to “lay a mine” under the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project.
