“At a morning operational meeting at Gazprom, Chairman of the Board Oleksii Miller said that this morning at 8.45 am the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was fully completed,” the statement said.
Gazprom is targeting gas flow through both lines under the Baltic Sea until December 1, the sources said. The company has already announced that the pipeline will be able to carry 5.6 billion cubic meters of fuel this year.
