The Russian concern Gazprom has named the expected volume of gas supplies via the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline this year, Deutsche Welle reports.
By the end of the year, 5.6 billion cubic meters of gas can be supplied via the new pipeline, the concern said in a statement released on Thursday, August 19.
At the same time, the exact date of the launch of the new gas pipeline has not been named.
The construction of the first line was completed on June 4. The second string of the gas pipeline is expected to be completed in August. At the same time, Gazprom announced that 33.7 billion cubic meters of gas were supplied to Germany via the already operating Nord Stream gas pipeline in the first seven months of 2020. Together, both gas pipelines will have a throughput capacity of 110 billion cubic meters per year.
After Gazprom announced the possibility of starting gas supplies via Nord Stream 2 this year, gas prices in Europe dropped.
Let us remind you that due to false data on the receipt of gas from Nord Stream 2, the price of gas in Europe fell by 10%.
