"Nord Stream-2" will be protected from attacks of Europe


Gazprom thought up how to bring the gas pipeline "Nord Stream-2" under construction out of action of the Gas directive of the European Union (EU) directed against the Russian concern writes Financial Times. The corporation intends to create the separate company which will perform functions of the operator of the gas pipeline on the small site about 50 kilometers long on an entrance on the territory of the EU. Now Nord Stream 2 AG registered in Switzerland which is completely belonging to Gazprom acts as the operator. She risks to get under action of the EU gas directive forbidding to own gas pipelines in the territory of the union to suppliers of gas. The directive is not approved yet. In the last several months it was the cause for disagreements between the members of the EU. Germany acted as the chief defender of Gazprom and "Nord Stream-2". "Nord Stream-2" has to be started at the end of 2019. The project assumes construction of two gas pipelines on a bottom of the Baltic Sea to Germany. Power of the pipeline will be 55 billion cubes of gas a year. The project is opposed by the USA and also Ukraine and the Baltic countries which are afraid of decrease in transit of gas through their territory. Washington lobbies supply of own liquefied natural gas (LNG) and repeatedly threatened with sanctions to participants of the Russian project. What occurs in Russia and in the world?
