Nord Stream 2 AG has announced that it has received a permit for the installation of an underwater pipeline in the territorial sea of the Russian Federation.

Nord Steam 2 AG is the developer of a pipeline to supply Russian natural gas to the EU market through the Baltic sea. This permit was issued by Russia’s Federal Agency for the Supervision of Natural Resources Use (Rosprirodnadzor) in accordance with the established procedure. The permit covers a section measuring 114 km in the Russian territorial sea. According to the statement, the practical implementation of the project under the terms of the newly issued permit will commence in the near future, taking environmental aspects into account. It will be in line with the conclusion of the State Environmental Expert Review and the Water Use License.

Previously, the Ministry of Construction and Utilities issued a construction permit for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline on the Russian territory. According to the statement, all of the permits necessary for construction of the Russian section of the pipeline have now been received.

Henning Kothe, Chief Project Officer at Nord Stream 2, said: “We are glad to announce that the necessary construction permits in Russia have been granted, meaning that the Nord Stream 2 project is developing according to the planned schedule. We will further rely on collaboration with the countries involved to ensure the project is implemented in a timely and efficient manner.”

In addition to permit granted by Russia, Germany, Finland and Sweden have also granted all of the permits necessary for construction of the planned pipeline within their jurisdictions. The national permitting procedure in Denmark is still continuing.
