New Proposed Route for Controversial Pipeline
The Russian-German company building a natural gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea may change its planned route to avoid a zone that is disputed by Denmark and Poland.
The original route planned for the 1,200-kilometer pipeline slices through a stretch of water that both Poland and Denmark claim as an exclusive economic zone.
According to a spokesperson, the new proposal would squeeze the pipeline between the Danish island of Bornholm and Sweden’s south-eastern coast, instead of through the disputed zone, south of Bornholm.
There has been previous criticism here in Sweden against the pipeline, which is already planned to be routed off the coast of the Swedsh island of Gotland.
