August 28, 2019

The Nord Stream 2, export gas pipeline running from Russia to Europe across the Baltic Sea, is 75% complete, the project's operator, Nord Stream 2 AG, said in a statement.

A total of 1,855 kilometers of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline were built along the bottom of the Baltic Sea in the waters of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Germany. That's about 75 percent of the total length of the pipeline, the release said.

Both strings have already been completed in German territorial waters and Finnish waters. Pipelay is currently ongoing in Russian territorial waters. At the landfalls in Germany and Russia, construction works have reached an advanced stage.

All pipes needed for the twin pipeline system have been concrete weight coated. Logistics operations are nearing completion.

In Hanko, Finland and Karlshamn Sweden, the last pipes were loaded out to pipelay vessels during this summer. Storage and logistics are continuing in the Finnish and German hubs, Kotka and Mukran respectively.
