Gazprom CEO Oleksii Miller said that by the end of 2021, during the heating season, the first deliveries via the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline could be made, Kommersant reports.
“Even before the end of this year, during this heating season, you and I can supply the first gas via the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to the European market,” he said at a festive selector for the Day of Oil and Gas Industry Worker.
In August, Gazprom announced that it expects to supply 5.6 billion cubic meters of gas via the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, the construction of which is almost complete, this year. This means that the company expects to put the first string of the gas pipeline into operation no later than mid-October.
To recap, the United States will impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2 in the event of a threat to Ukraine.
