In the West, criticized the United States for sanctions against the “Nord stream-2”. British-Dutch Shell said that because of the limitations the project will not be able to generate cash and service debt to Western companies. About it writes “Interfax” with reference to the head of Shell Ben van Bearden.
He noted that U.S. sanctions directed against Nord Stream 2 — operator of the pipeline and involved in the construction companies. However, Shell and several other Western companies are not investors of the project and act as its creditors.
USA in the end of 2019, imposed sanctions against the “Nord stream-2” and participants in the construction of the pipeline. This led to the fact that the Swiss company Allseas withdrew the ship-the pipe layer. As a result of construction work stopped, and the commissioning of the infrastructure in operation is moved.
Originally intended to launch the project before the end of 2019. However, according to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, due to limitations in terms of commissioning transferred at the end of 2020 — early 2021.
