Construction of Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline May Resume at End of May, German Regulator Says

BERLIN (Sputnik) – The lawsuit filed by the German environmental charity Nabu against the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline halted the issuance of the work permit by the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH), the press service of the regulator told Sputnik on Tuesday, adding that construction could be resumed in May.

“The lawsuit has a suspensive effect on the permit. The claim is directed against the second amended BSH permit of 14 January 2021. With this permit, BSH approved the laying of the pipeline by an anchored vessel between late September and late May on a 16.5 km [10 miles] section in Germany’s exclusive economic zone in the Baltic Sea”.
