“Until the end of this year, during this heating season, we will be able to supply the first gas through the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to the European market,” Miller said.
Miller made the proper statement during the festive selector dedicated to the Day of the oil, gas and fuel industry.
The end of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the waters of Germany by Fortuna pipe-laying ship is planned for September 12. Besides, the Russian company Gazprom has stated that the first line of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is almost ready for launch.
Earlier, it was reported that Nord Stream 2 AG Company, the operator of the Nord Stream 2, lost a court ruling imposing changes to its organization. The Dusseldorf Higher Regional Court on Wednesday dismissed a bid to sidestep European Union rules requiring gas producers to be legally separate from entities that transport the fuel.
