Russian society & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221 ;, which is responsible for the construction of & # 8220; Nord Stream-2 & # 8221 ;, announced on the official Telegram channel that it was fully completed.
According to Gazprom, & # 8220; SP-2 & # 8221; was fully built on the morning of September 10.
This was announced by the head of the board of directors Alexey Miller during an operational meeting of the PJSC. He named the hour for the end of full-scale construction & # 8211; 8.45 a.m. Moscow time.
Recall that on the eve of the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova announced the intention of Moscow to continue the transit of gas through Ukrainian territory.
“But this problem is purely commercial”, – she added, according to & # 8220; Interfax & # 8221;.
Zakharova explained that continued transit requires addressing many issues, including the competitiveness of alternative gas routes, as well as the volume of purchases that future European consumers will report.
She also called the construction an example of positive cooperation between Russia and the EU and expressed hope that in the future the installation will not do the subject of negative speculation.
As Topnews previously wrote, earlier media reported the start date of gas deliveries to & # 8220; SP-2 & # 8221 ;. They will start on October 1 and from December 1 both lines of the line will start to operate.
At the same time, on September 9, Maria Zakharova said that the delivery time would depend on the position of the German Regulator.
It is known that the gas pipeline is laid along the bottom of the Baltic Sea from Ust-Luga (Russia) to Greifswald (Germany).
Its length is 2,460 km, capacity – 55 billion cubic meters. The media made it clear that Gazprom had to complete construction of the facility itself due to US sanctions against a Swiss contractor.
