Nord Stream 2 to Start Work on Filling Pipeline on Friday

Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas project will start preparations on Friday to fill the first of two pipelines with natural gas, the Gazprom-led project said on Thursday.
Nord Stream 2, which runs on the bed of the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, bypassing Ukraine, has faced criticism from the United States, which says it will increase European reliance on Russian gas.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said last week the project was ready to start pumping gas to Germany and the final stretch would be completed as the new U.S. administration seeks good relations with “key partners in Europe.”
Nord Stream 2 said on Thursday works on the second pipeline were still underway. Putin said last week Russia was set to finish the second pipeline within two months.
Once Nord Stream 2 is finished, it will double the existing route’s annual volume to 110 billion cubic metres.
