Nord Stream 2 appeals Germany’s decision on EU Directive

Earlier, BNetzA refused to notify the request, as the gas pipeline does not meet current standards.

Nord Stream 2 intends to appeal against Germany’s refusal to withdraw the gas pipeline from the EU Directive. The operator of “Nord stream-2” does not agree with the position of the Federal Network Agency of Germany (BNetzA).

BNetzA refused to notify the request, as the pipeline does not meet current regulations. Gas pipelines that were completed before May 23, 2019, are eligible for exclusion from the Directive.

Earlier, Gazprom said that the project was completed from an economic point of view. However, the German Agency was not satisfied with this argument, so Gazprom will only be able to use half of the pipeline’s capacity.
