"We have developed a different route, so the Nord Stream 2 company will not require Danish approvals," Leitner said, adding that project costs can be maintained.

"The total project cost will remain the same as indicated when starting the project and amounts to 9.5 bln euro," TASS cited the top manager as saying.

OMV is one of European partners of the Russian gas holding Gazprom in this project.
