A Russian company fills the first line of Nord Stream 2 with gas

MOSCOW, OCTOBER 18 – Russia’s Gazprom is full Gas The company operating the project said today that the first line of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has a volume of about 177 million cubic meters.

Nord Stream AG, which is responsible for operating the pipelines connecting Russia and Germany, explained that this liquid with the so-called technical gas will provide a pressure of 103 bar, which is enough to start the transportation of fuel in the future.

According to the statement, the start of work is continuing on the second line of the facility.

On October 4, the Danish Energy Agency confirmed that Nord Stream 2 AG had met all the conditions for operating the gas pipeline.

The joint work of the Russian energy company with five European partners consists of two pipelines crossing the Baltic Sea at the seabed, with a capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.

Business was suspended in December 2019 after Swiss company Allseas abandoned the contract to lay the lines due to threats from the United States. As of December 2020, its construction has resumed.

Russia’s Gazprom said that on September 10, the work of the gas pipeline was concluded, which is scheduled to start work at the end of this year, as it can already provide about 5.6 billion cubic meters of gas.
