An agreement signed in 2006 on natural gas supply via the Nord Stream gas pipeline defined the basic terms for Danish purchases of Russian gas over a period of 20 years.

Deliveries of Russian natural gas to DONG (renamed Ørsted from November 2017) began with the commissioning of Nord Stream’s first line on November 8, 2011.

In 2016, supply to Denmark amounted to 1.75 bcm.
