Nord Stream 2 AG Keen to Provide Market with Extra Capacities as Soon as Possible

According to a source in Nord Stream 2 AG’s press office, the operator is eager to supply the market with more dependable gas transport capabilities as soon as feasible.

“Our aim is to offer more dependable gas transport capabilities to the market as soon as feasible. We will keep you updated on the next technological measures “, in response to a TASS inquiry, the business said.

The gas pipeline project’s operator said earlier on Monday that the gas-in process for the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline had been completed, with the string being filled with about 177 million cubic meters of technical gas. This pressure is enough to begin gas distribution in the future.

The second string’s pre-commissioning procedures are still in progress.

The Danish Energy Agency said on October 4 that Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, has met all requirements for commissioning Nord Stream 2. The firm announced the commencement of the gas-in process for the pipeline’s first string.

The Nord Stream 2 project calls for the building of two pipelines from Russia’s coast across the Baltic Sea to Germany, with a combined capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year.

The project was halted in December 2019 when Swiss Allseas abandoned pipe-laying owing to potential US penalties. The pipeline’s construction began in December 2020 and was  finished on September 10, 2021.

The gas pipeline’s commissioning is scheduled for the end of this year. Gazprom, Russia’s gas producer, had said that 5.6 billion cubic meters of gas may be supplied this year through the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
