Official: US, Germany, EU working to halt N Stream 2 launch

WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (PRIME) -- The U.S., Germany and the E.U. are working to halt the launch of Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, Deputy State Secretary Victoria Nuland said late on Tuesday.

She said that the German government had made steps to consider the approval of the pipeline slowly and block the project in case of Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

The 55 billion cubic meter Nord Stream 2 pipeline was built in September 2021. Both strings were filled with technical gas and the pipeline is ready for operation. Its certification by the German Federal Network Agency was halted in November because the regulator deemed it necessary for the operator to create a subsidiary in Germany and reapply for certification as an operator on its behalf as required by the European law.
