Greece says EU must treat N Stream-2 like other projects
MOSCOW, Mar 14 (PRIME) -- The E.U. should approach all projects, including the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream-2, equally, Greece’s Environment and Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis told PRIME on the sidelines of the CERAWeek conference late Wednesday.
“We are calling on the E.U. to set equal terms and have an equal approach for all projects in Europe. And I am speaking about the Nord Stream-2 decision as well,” Stathakis said.
The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Gazprom is implementing the project together with Germany’s E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, and France’s Engie.
