Nord Stream 2 to start laying gas pipes in Danish waters
Topics: NORD STREAM
The Danish Maritime Authority has issued notification of pipe laying works for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline on the Baltic Sea bed from Jan. 15, according to a publication on the regulator's website dated Dec. 22.
It said the Fortuna vessel will perform the pipe-laying work and will be assisted by construction vessels Baltic Explorer and Murman along with other supply vessels.
The Fortuna is currently laying pipes in the shallow waters of the pipeline's German zone after work resumed this month.
The consortium, led by Russian gas giant Gazprom, has yet to lay more than 100km of pipeline with annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters, though more than 90% of the project has been completed. ■
