Nord Stream 2 is ready to launch at full capacity

Nord Stream 2 was completely filled with gas. The gas pipeline with a capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year is ready for launch. The Russian President congratulated on the completion of construction.

“Today, at 12.58 Moscow time, Gazprom completed the filling of the second string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline with gas. And now both the first and the second strings of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline are under operating pressure and are fully ready for operation, "said Gazprom head Alexei Miller at a meeting chaired by Vladimir Putin on the autumn-winter heating season . The President congratulated Gazprom and its partners on the completion of the work.

The operator Nord Stream 2 reported that in accordance with the plan and design requirements, the line is filled with so-called technical gas in the amount of approximately 177 million cubic meters, which provides a pressure level of 103 bar in the pipeline. "This pressure is enough to start transporting gas in the future," the company said.

Recall that the American sanctions delayed the completion of the project by more than a year and a half. The operator is now being certified. The German regulator said that the procedure could last until the second half of next year. The delay in launching the project was one of the reasons for the high gas prices in Europe during this heating season. They climbed to a record $ 2,200 last week.
