Russia's Gazprom Says Constructed 42% Of Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline
Russian energy giant Gazprom has already laid more than 1,000 kilometers (over 620 miles), or 42 percent, of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, the company said on Tuesday in a statement
"As of the moment, 1,025 kilometers of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has been laid on the bed of the Baltic Sea, which is 42 percent of the two legs [of the pipeline]," the statement stressed.
The company pointed out that construction of the undersea part of the pipeline was carried out in line with the schedule.
The Nord Stream 2 project is a joint venture of Gazprom and five European companies: France's ENGIE, Austria's OMV, British-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, and Germany's Uniper and Wintershall. The twin pipeline, consisting of two approximately 1,230-kilometres-long legs, is set to run from Russia to Germany to deliver Russian gas to European consumers.
