Nord Stream II launch could be postponed for eight months due to Denmark’s position

The delay will result in considerable expenditures

The launch of Nord Stream II gas pipeline may be delayed. This is due to Denmark’s stance on this issue, Reuters reported

The outlet mentioned that the delay will most likely result in solid extra expenditures.

“The project’s operator turned to the Danish government, indicating the price of the third route, which is assessed at the rate of 560 million Euros, and the expenditures for the new request for the said route make 100 million Euros”, says the message.

The route of Nord Stream II should be crossing the waters of Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. By now, all states but Denmark provided the necessary documents approving the route.

Ukraine, Poland, the Baltic States and the USA stand against the implementation of this project. They urge the EU authorities to block it, claiming that Nord Stream II is actually a gas needle, which increases the dependence on Russian gas supplies.

  1. This is why Muscovy want to generously offer Ukraine a 12 month gas contract. Ukraine should hold out for a 10 year contract, and don’t budge from it. No doubt the EU will be squirming at the thought of no gas transit through Ukraine for 8 months, but Ukraine are in the driving seat, unless Ze capitulates.

    • If Trump signs these sanctions against Nord stream, and it’s a big if. Ukraine will have gas transit for years to come, and it will keep Putin from invading the rest of Ukraine.

  2. The Bratwurst mafia clan we know. The Swedes stand on the ence as usual. Raping women seems to not offend excessively, just don’t kill anyone. Denmark gets a pat on the back for being principaled.
    The one country I do not understand is Finland. Considering previous occupations and continual conflict over a fairly long border, observers would exect the Finns to be willing to shoot the Russians in the foot. Now that leaves us to consider what high card Pootie is holding there, and what form of corruption should be infesticated.

What is your opinion?
