On October 30, 2019, the Danish Energy Agency granted the permit to construct the sector of Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Kingdom.
As noted in a press release of the Danish Energy Agency, the approved 147-km route stretches southeast of Bornholm Island. The Danish party states that the permit is granted pursuant to the Continental Shelf Act and in accordance with Denmark’s obligations under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
Nord Stream 2 AG reports that preparatory works and the pipelining on the Danish sector will start in the coming weeks. “We will continue the constructive cooperation with Danish authorities to complete the construction of the pipeline,” said Samira Kiefer Andersson, Permitting Manager Denmark at Nord Stream 2 AG.
As of today, more than 2,100 km of the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline have been laid. Pipelay has been completed in Russian, Finnish and Swedish waters. The construction of both landfall facilities in Russia and Germany is nearing completion.
