Nord Stream 2 rejects Poland’s stance and seeks for a derogation from the EU

The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is continuing to push its case for a derogation from new European rules on non-EU gas links, reports the provider of energy and commodities information S&P Global Platts.

The decision comes after Polish oil and gas company PGNiG and its German subsidiary PGNiG Supply and Trading were allowed to join the procedure.

Early in January, the Gazprom-owned Nord Stream 2 development company turned to the German energy regulator Bundesnetzagentur seeking a derogation from the European Union’s Third Energy Package requirements.

Last week PGNiG welcomed the decision that included the company in the procedure, allowing it to defend the interests of the group and gas consumers in the course of the derogation procedure.

“Nord Stream 2 must not be given preferential treatment,” said Jerzy Kwieciński, President of the PGNiG Management Board.

Nord Stream 2 rejected the Polish stance, claiming that the pipeline would not have any impact on CEE supply security and should legally be allowed a derogation from the amended EU Gas Directive.
