The rejection of Nord Stream 2 request to have the pipeline stretch in Germany exempted from the EU Gas Directive shows the discriminatory nature of the regulations, the company said Friday.

The situation with the Gas Directive will not prevent the pipeline from being fully laid down, the company said.
Germany's Federal Network Agency (BNA) has rejected the derogation request and said that the pipeline would be "subject to German regulatory requirements and European rules on unbundling, network access and cost regulation" since it was not physically completed by 23 May 2019.
According to the press release, the BNA's decision on the Nord Stream 2 AG can be appealed within one month. ■
