MURMANSK, 1 Oct – PRIME. The pressure in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has stabilized, the thread has become empty, the Danish Energy Agency said on Twitter, citing Nord Stream 2 AG.
Nord Stream 2 AG has informed the Danish Energy Agency that pressure has now stabilized on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, indicating that the gas leak has stopped.
On Monday, terrorist attacks occurred simultaneously on two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe. Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage.
The Russian side officially requested information from Denmark about the emergency at Nord Stream as soon as the incident became known. The Danish authorities notified the Russian Federation about the explosions at the site of the gas leak. The operator of Nord Stream, Nord Stream AG, reported that the state of emergency on gas pipelines was unprecedented, and it was impossible to estimate the timing of repairs.
The work of Nord Stream has been suspended since the end of August due to problems with the repair of Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions. However, the pipeline remained filled with gas. Nord Stream 2, completed in 2021 but never put into operation, has also already been filled with gas.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation initiated the initiation of a case on an act of international terrorism after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that NATO conducted exercises using deep-sea equipment in the area where the Nord Stream incidents occurred. The press secretary of the President of Russia stated that CNN’s statements about Russian ships and submarines allegedly seen in the area of the accident on the Nord Stream in the Baltic Sea are stupid and biased, more NATO ships and aircraft were noticed there.
