Piece of Munitions Stops Nord Stream Line 2 Flows

During routine survey operations as part of annual integrity assessment activities of the Nord Stream Offshore Pipeline System, a piece of munitions was found in close proximity to the Nord Stream Line 2.

The location of the object is in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) approximately 120 km away from the island of Gotland, Nord Stream informed.

Swedish Authorities relevant for the matter (Swedish Coast Guard, Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, Swedish Maritime Administration) were informed.

The authorities have established a three nautical miles safety zone to minimize any risks, until the object is analyzed and removed.

Nord Stream has stopped gas transportation through Line 2 for safety reasons, the company added.

The Nord Stream twin pipelines have the capacity to transport a combined total of 55 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas a year to businesses and households in the EU for at least 50 years.
