Nord Stream 2 AG has received consent for the use of the Finnish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) for the construction of the planned natural gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.

Finnish Government approved the 374-kilometers-long section running through Finnish EEZ outside territorial waters.

The EEZ permit application was processed by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, Nord Stream noted.

We are very pleased to have obtained this permit after an extensive and thorough permitting process. It marks yet another important milestone for the Nord Stream 2 project,” said Tore Granskog, permitting manager Finland at Nord Stream 2 AG.

In Finland, Nord Stream 2 needs to obtain two permits for the construction and operation of the pipelines in the Finnish EEZ. The second permit is granted according to the Water Act and a decision is expected to be made within the next weeks.

The company has already received the necessary permits in Germany. The national permitting procedures in the other three countries along the route – Russia, Sweden and Denmark – are progressing as planned, the company concluded.

Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will have an aggregate annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters.
