Nord Stream 2 Will Be Completed By Mid-September

German authorities expect that pipelay work on the last section of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in German waters will be completed by September 12, according to Bloomberg. The news confirms Russian President Vladimir Putin's announcement last week that just eight nautical miles of pipeline remain before the Russian pipelay vessel Fortuna has completed her task.

he Nord Stream 2 partnership, led by Russian state gas company Gazprom, has made rapid progress on the dual-line project despite American sanctions.

The line gives Russia a new way to transport its abundant natural gas production to the European market, potentially bypassing shoreside networks in Poland and Ukraine.
