In the United States, an investigation was launched against a company associated with “Nord stream-2”

The United States is investigating the American oil and gas service company Baker Hughes, which is suspected of collaborating with organizations that have fallen under US sanctions, reports Reuters.

Baker Hughes itself has started an internal audit. The US Securities and Exchange Commission have already received some documents.

At the end of February, Baker Hughes refused to cooperate with the Nord Stream 2 project, which passes through the exclusive economic zones and territorial waters of Germany, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Russia. Its two lines should provide a capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

The United States actively opposes the construction of the gas pipeline, saying that it allegedly undermines the energy security of Europe, but they themselves promote their reduced gas. At the same time, on January 1, the US Senate voted for the defense budget for the 2021 fiscal year. The document, among other things, provides for the expansion of sanctions against Nord Stream 2.
