The timing of the project “Northern stream-2” can be changed, but the changes will be minor. This was stated by the Chairman of the Board “Gazprom” Alexey Miller on the air “Russia 1”, reports TASS.
According to Miller, 4/5 of the total volume of capital expenditures required for construction of the pipeline has already been funded. “Even if there is some situation, it is necessary to understand that they can move the project on time, but very, very marginally,” said Miller.
According to may 15, in the framework of the project “Northern stream-2” laid 1241 kilometres of pipes (50.6% of the total length of two pipelines).
Earlier, on may 17, the company 2 the Nord Stream said that the completion of the pipeline “Nord stream-2” can be transported in the second half of 2020. This is possible if you stop at the third variant of the route that required to consider Denmark.
“Nord stream-2” should connect Russia and Germany under the Baltic sea. Its launch is scheduled for the end of 2019, but may be postponed because Denmark still has not issued a permit for the construction of the pipeline, which is considered a threat to its statehood.
