Nord Stream

Baltic Gas Pipeline Halted

Published lördag 10 oktober 2009 kl 11.02

The controversial project to build a gas pipeline along the bottom of the Baltic Sea has been halted by a Finnish court. But the Nord Stream company says the decision will not impact on its work.

A Helsinki District Court ordered a temporary stop to Nord Stream’s ammunition-clearing authorization, which had been granted last week. This follows the presentation of a mining claim in the undersea area.

Nord Stream plans to build a 1220 kilometer pipeline to deliver natural gas from Russia to Germany. The company says it expects the Finnish court to make a final ruling in its favor next week.

The project is still waiting for approval from the governments of Sweden, Finland, and Denmark. The plan is highly controversial in Sweden because of environmental, political, and security concerns, not least because of a planned Russian military presence in Swedish waters.
