President of Austria’s National Council Wolfgang Sobotka said that Vienna is interested in the Nord Stream-2 project.


"We are interested in the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project in order to strengthen stability and security of the European Union," he said, addressing the Russian State Duma.

The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Russian gas giant Gazprom will implement the project together with Germany’s E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, and Engie.
