The second Nord Stream 2 string is being filled with natural gas

In the middle of December, the gas-in procedure for the second string of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which will transport natural gas over some 1,230 kilometres from the world’s largest gas reserves in Russia through the Baltic Sea, has started.

Like the first string, which was filled at the beginning of October, the second string will be gradually filled with gas to build the required inventory and pressure. Pre-commissioning activities on the second string were completed successfully to assure the pipeline integrity.

Earlier in November, Germany’s Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) announced the suspension of the certification procedure for Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline operator. The reason is that Nord Stream 2 does not meet the criteria for an independent transmission system operator, specifically the condition that the operator must be organised in a legal form under German law.
