Next “Nord Stream 2” gas leak

Contrary to expectations, gas leaks from damaged “Nord Stream” pipelines in the Baltic Sea have not yet completely dried up. As announced by the Swedish Coast Guard, the area where gas escapes from water has increased even at the smaller of the two exit points of the “Nord Stream 2” gas pipeline in the country’s economic zone. It was about 30 meters after the Coast Guard reported a diameter of 15 meters over the weekend.

The initially larger outlet point in the “Nord Stream 1” pipeline, however, can no longer be seen at the water surface. Danish authorities only announced over the weekend that there were no more gas leaks at the two points in their economic zone.

The operator, Nord Stream AG, was informed that the pressure in the pipeline also stabilized with “Nord Stream 1”. This indicates that no more gas is escaping. The Danes had already announced the same status on Saturday for “Nord Stream 2”.

Russian state-owned Gazprom also confirmed that pressure on the lines of the two pipelines has now stabilized. To ensure safety, gas is still being pumped out of the intact “Nord Stream 2” pipeline to create better conditions for pipeline verification.
