Construction of Russian gas pipeline “Nord stream-2” received aid from the West despite introduced in late 2019 the US sanctions, says owned by Grigory Berezkin RBC, citing data from the MarineTraffic service. For inspection of the object came a Norwegian ship leased by the Swedish company MMT SWEDEN.
The ship Stril Explorer has passed the main portion of the pipeline and is in close proximity to his unfinished part in the territorial waters of Denmark. Her authorities issued a permit for construction after all other countries in November last year.
It is expected that the Stril Explorer will inspect the works already carried out through visual inspection and instrument monitoring all phases of the pipeline as completed and not yet ready.
At the end of last year, the U.S. imposed sanctions against the “Nord stream-2” and participants in its construction. These restrictive rules have been laid down in the defence budget for 2020. After that, the Swiss company Allseas withdrew his ship-pipelayer, and work on completion of construction to a virtual halt, and the time of commissioning moved in a few months.
