North Stream 2 New Export Gas Pipeline From Russia to Europe Will be In Operation Soon

Written By pipeline-engineer.com on Sunday, July 14, 2019 | 4:41:00 AM

(Gazprom) North Stream 2 is a new export gas pipeline running from Russia to Europe across the Baltic Sea.The decision to build Nord Steam 2 was based on the successful experience in building and operating the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

The new pipeline, similar to the one in operation, will establish a direct link between Gazprom and the European consumers. It will also ensure a highly reliable supply of Russian gas to Europe. This is particularly important now when Europe sees a decline in domestic gas production and an increasing demand for imported gas.

The Nord Stream 2 project is implemented by the Nord Stream 2 AG project company. The entry point of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline into the Baltic Sea will be the Ust-Luga area of the Leningrad Region. Then the pipeline will stretch across the Baltic Sea. Its exit point in Germany will be in the Greifswald area close to the exit point of Nord Stream.

The route covers over 1,200 kilometers.

The total capacity of two strings of Nord Stream 2 is 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The aggregated design capacity of Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 is therefore 110 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Nord Stream 2 will be put into operation before late 2019.(PE)
