Operator “Nord stream-2” project company Nord Stream 2, has denied the information about the new plan for the completion of the pipeline. This writes belongs to Grigory Berezkin edition by RBC with reference to the press service of the project company.
The Danish energy Agency said it had not received a request to amend the permit for the construction of the pipeline, to be completed in the circumvention of us sanctions. However, the Agency did not rule out that the application of similar content can be viewed in the case of receipt.
Previously RIA Novosti reported that Nord Stream 2 sent a request to the Danish side, in which she proposed to use to complete the construction of two pipe-laying barge “Fortuna” and “defender” company “Mezhregiontruboprovodstroy” in conjunction with vessels equipped with dynamic positioning system.
The presence of such a system is a prerequisite for the construction of a gas pipeline from the Danish side. It allows you to keep the vehicle at a given point in all the waves during propulsion and thruster complex. The condition appeared due to the fact that in the Baltic sea, the bottom of which lay pipe, after the Second world war was flooded a large number of shells, and Denmark fears of random bombings.
The US imposed sanctions against contractors of the pipeline “Nord stream-2” in December 2019. Due to limitations of the Swiss company Allseas, which was engaged in laying the pipes, stopped work and withdrew their vessels equipped with dynamic positioning system. The project completion date had to be moved from end 2019 to the horizon 2021-th.
In February 2020, unofficial information emerged that before the end of March, the U.S. plan to impose new restrictions on the “Nord stream-2”. This time under the sanctions can get European investors involved in the project, and companies who want to buy gas if you run the object.
