Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has multi-level implications for the Russian gas sector.
The Russians want the Nord Stream 2 certificate on their terms. This is another attempt by Gazprom to circumvent European energy law.
As of December 17, the gas-in procedure for the second string of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has started.
Foreign companies partnering on Nord Stream 2 spent more than $14.2 million since 2017 for lobbying in USA.
Behind the scenes Germany is patiently working with the United States to implement a deal allowing for the ultimate transportation of natural gas via the Nord Stream 2 subsea pipeline.
The biggest supporters of the Russian gas pipeline are already losing faith in its rapid start-up.
House Foreign Affairs Committee released the statement regarding the temporary pause of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline certification.
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) has announced the suspension of the certification procedure for Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline operator.
BNetzA formally accepted Naftogaz’s application to be included in the certification process of Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
“The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is ready to be launched,” Gazprom manager Alexei Finikov said on Monday.
