Two lines of the gas pipeline with a combined capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas-run along the bottom of the Baltic Sea from Vyborg in Russia to Greifswald in Germany. The actual volumes of gas pumping through the pipeline exceed the design capacity: in 2019, Gazprom exported 58.5 billion cubic meters of gas via the “Nord stream.”
