As it was reported earlier, the construction of the German part of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has begun in Germany. It is noted that the works on the re-excavation and laying of the foundation for the gas receiving stations and the maintenance building have already begun at the docking point of the future pipeline in Lubmin,  Mecklenburg-Vorpommern land, at the square of about six hectares.

Russia’s leading energy enterprise Gazprom and its partners intend to start implementing the Nord Stream-2 project worth almost 10 billion euros in April 2018. The 1,200-kilometers-long pipeline is to be laid through the Baltic Sea, linking Russia and Germany – bypassing Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic States. The capacity will be twice larger than that of Nord Stream-1. The construction is to be complete by late 2019.
