Denmark delays Nord Stream 2 approval

156

Denmark has decided that it will not grant permission for a northern route of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project and has asked the Russian-owned company to look into a southern route instead. It is likely to delay the completion of the controversial project.

Responding to some media reports that Copenhagen had allegedly called a complete halt to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, a spokesman of the Danish Energy Agency told EURACTIV that the DEA has merely “requested” the company to “investigate the environmental impacts for a route south of Bornholm in the continental shelf area.”
