Nord Stream 2

The Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 are the optimal pipeline routes to transport russian gas to Europe, directly linking Russia and Germany

Upon commissioning of the Nord Stream gas pipeline, Gazprom has been looking into the possibility of boosting the capacity of this facility, which plays an important role in ensuring reliable supplies of Russian natural gas and serves to meet additional demand in Europe. Definite agreement on the implementation of the project was reached in September, 2015. 

The route of the new gas pipeline will cross the Baltic Sea from Russia’s coast to Germany’s Greifswald.  The capacity of the gas pipeline will reach 55 billion cubic meters a year.

The project is implemented by the Nord Stream 2 AG company.
