The Nord Stream-2 pipeline, which late last month obtained a permit to construct its planned pipeline system in the Danish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) southeast of Bornholm, is now ready to complete the final stretch of the Gazprom-led project that will transport Russian gas from Russia to Germany, despite efforts from the United States and some EU Member States to halt the project.

Nord Stream-2 is working toward the safe and compliant completion of the project in the coming months, the pipeline’s representative Sebastian Sass told New Europe on 8 November.

“We will start the construction of the pipeline in Danish waters in due time,” he said. “The actual start of construction depends on a number of legal, technical and environmental factors,” he said, adding that this will take a few weeks.
