USA: Russia has no technologies to complete Nord Stream 2

US Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette during his speech at the Munich Security Conference said that Russia would not be able to complete the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline without the help of Western companies, Hromadske reports.

“This will be a very long delay (in the construction of the gas pipeline – ed.), because Russia has no corresponding technologies. If they develop them, we will see what they can do”, the minister said.

To recap, recently, Gazprom said that Russia had no technological obstacles to completing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that the gas pipeline could be completed by the end of 2020 with the Akademik Cherskiy.

Earlier it was reported that US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry had resigned.
