Nord Stream Pipeline Achieves 200bcm Milestone

Nord Stream has to date delivered a total volume of 200 billion cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas from Russia to the European Union.

The twin offshore pipeline through the Baltic Sea has the designed capacity to transport 55 bcm per year.

The pipelines’ utilised capacity has increased year after year: From 35.5 bcm delivered in 2014 to 39.1 bcm in 2015, and 43.8 bcm in 2016.

For 2017, Nord Stream expects to reach an average capacity utilisation of 92 per cent.

“Nord Stream has established itself as a key part of European supply infrastructure,” says Mario Nullmeier, compliance director Nord Stream AG. “With the decreasing domestic production of natural gas in Europe accompanied by continued high demand, our safe, reliable and efficient transport of natural gas has increased the security of supply. We will be able to further increase the volumes transported to deliver 55 billion cubic metres of natural gas to European consumers.”
