Denmark has allowed Gazprom to resume laying the “Nord stream-2” pipeline

The Danish energy appeal Board has not received an appeal against the decision of the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) to allow Nord Stream – 2 AG to use anchor – positioned vessels for the construction of “Nord stream-2.”

The Ministry said in a statement that the operator can resume construction of the gas pipeline from Tuesday.

Previously, the DEA allowed Nord Stream 2 AG to use anchored vessels in the construction of the pipeline in Danish waters, and not only with dynamic positioning, as was previously the case.

As the Agency explained, the pipeline route to be completed passes outside the risk zone of contact with chemical weapons buried at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. However, construction of “Nord stream-2” could not be resumed until August 3, when the deadline for appealing the updated Danish permit expired.
