Nord stream-2 will begin to build without a verdict Denmark

Северный поток-2 начнут строить без вердикта Дании

An alternative for the gas pipeline Nord stream-2 in this area – international waters.

Nord Stream 2 will begin to build the gas pipeline Nord stream-2 this summer to get permission from Denmark. On Thursday, June 28, announced financial Director Paul Corcoran.

“If the Danish government did not approve the construction of a gas pipeline in their territorial waters, we have to change the route, and the most likely option – laying in international waters North of Denmark,” said Corcoran.

The company has not yet applied for the construction of a pipeline in international waters and expects a decision in Denmark. On the territory of this country accounted for 10% of the route, says Corcoran.

According to him, now the preparatory work has started on the coastal parts and on the bottom, pipe laying may be initiated in the coming weeks.

Part of the Nord stream-2 is scheduled to take place at the Danish island of Bornholm. In the fall of 2017, the country’s Parliament adopted a law allowing the foreign Ministry to prohibit the construction of a new pipeline in the territorial waters on the basis of “foreign policy interests and national security”.

Earlier it became known that Denmark could block or delay the construction of Nord stream-2 through its territorial waters. The authorities offered to discuss this issue at a European level.

Germany recognized that Nord stream-2 threatening US sanctions, because of which the economic sense of the project may disappear.
