According to the Danish authorities, there are no more gas leaks from the damaged Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea. The operator, Nord Stream AG, was told that pressure in the pipeline on Nord Stream 1 had stabilised, the official said on Twitter Sunday afternoon. This indicates that no more gas is escaping. The Danes had already announced the same status for Nord Stream 2 on Saturday.
Previously, large amounts of gas had continuously escaped for days from the four leaks in the two pipelines – two of them in Swedish waters, two in Danish waters. After flying over the area on Saturday afternoon, Swedish authorities said the gas leak continued to decrease.
Many states assume sabotage. At least two explosions took place underwater, Denmark and Sweden announced during the week. The seismological institutes measured a force of 2.3 and 2.1, which “probably corresponds to an explosive charge of several hundred kilograms”.
Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said on state television: “Certainly there are technical possibilities to rebuild the infrastructure.” However, this requires adequate time and resources. But first you have to find out who is behind it, Nowak said on the show “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin.”
