Nord Stream-2 AG Receives Construction And Operation Permit For Planned Pipeline In German Territorial Waters

Nord Stream-2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, has received the construction and operation permit for the planned pipeline in German territorial waters.

The press service of the company announced this in a statement, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The company also received construction and operation permit for the planned pipeline in the landfall area in Lubmin, near Greifswald.

According to the company, the Stralsund Mining Authority issued the official approval for this approximately 55-kilometer-long section of the pipeline in accordance with the Energy Industry Act (EnWG).

In early November 2017, Nord Stream-2 AG received the Stralsund Mining Authority's approval of mining activities for the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline in the area of the German continental shelf (equivalent to the German Exclusive Economic Zone, or EEZ). According to the company, this is a necessary precondition for the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) to issue its permit for the German EEZ, which is expected in the first quarter of 2018.

"The national permitting procedures in the other four countries along the route - Russia, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark - are also proceeding as planned. Nord Stream-2 has fulfilled all requirements and expects the permits to be issued in time for the scheduled start of construction in 2018," the statement said.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, President Petro Poroshenko has said that the Russia-initiated project for construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline is a test of European unity.

The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction and operation of two gas pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to Germany.

Nord Stream-2 AG was established to plan, construct, and operate the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

Gazprom owns 100% of the shares in the company.
