Nord Stream 2 receives permit from GermanyStaff Writer | February 1, 2018
Nord Stream 2 received the construction and operation permit for the planned pipeline in German territorial waters and the landfall area in Lubmin, near Greifswald.
Energy The Stralsund Mining Authority issued the official approval
In early November 2017, Nord Stream 2 received the Stralsund Mining Authority’s approval of mining activities for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline in the area of the German continental shelf (equivalent to the German Exclusive Economic Zone, or EEZ).
This is a necessary precondition for the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) to issue its permit for the German EEZ, which is expected in the first quarter of 2018.
The national permitting procedures in the other four countries along the route – Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark – are also proceeding as planned.
Nord Stream 2 has fulfilled all requirements and expects the permits to be issued in time for the scheduled start of construction in 2018. ■
