As of October 18, the gas-in procedure for the first string of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been completed. As planned and in line with the system design requirements, the string is filled with some 177 million m3 of so-called technical gas, reaching a pressure of 103 bar in the pipeline.
This pressure is sufficient to start gas transportation in future.
Pre-commissioning steps for the second string are ongoing. Nord Stream 2 will inform about further technical steps in due time.
