Denmark is against the launch of Nord Stream 2

At the United Nations Climate Summit in Glasgow, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said that Denmark is against the launch of Nord Stream 2, RBC reports.

“The Danish government continues to oppose Nord Stream 2. The situation on the energy markets in this regard has not changed our position. Yes, we gave permission for its construction in due time, but it was a technical moment, our position was always obvious,” she said.

The Danish Energy Agency issued a permit for the construction of a section of the gas pipeline that runs along the Danish Continental Loop in October 2019. This happened 2.5 years after the filing of the application. The government of the kingdom explained that it could not interfere with the construction, since they adopted the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The permit was also facilitated by the national law on the continental shelf.

Denmark was the last country to refuse permission to build Nord Stream 2.

In June 2020, the Danish Energy Agency granted Nord Stream 2 AG permission to use anchor positioned pipe-laying vessels (in addition to dynamically positioned vessels) for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the Danish Exclusive Economic Zone.
