Nord Stream has successfully completed the final 30-day test of the pipeline system as of 6:00 CET today.
The industry-standard test confirms the safety and reliability of the integrated twin-pipeline gas transportation system. The completion of the NEL-Pipeline in early November allowed for a test phase involving the connected pipelines. Since the start of operations in November 2011, Nord Stream continues to transport all the gas nominated and supplied by Gazprom Export to its downstream European partners.
