Gas Pipeline

Sweden Skips Nordstream Conference

Published torsdag 26 mars 2009 kl 13.13
Proposed plans for Nordstream's pipeline

Sweden has decided not to take part in a conference about the proposed Nord Stream gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea, much to the surprise of the members of the Russian Parliament, who are organised the meeting in St Petersburg next week. Head of the Russian Duma’s energy committee, Yuri Lipatov, says they are very upset that Sweden has decided not to take part in the meeting.

Karin Pilsäter, head of the Swedish parliament’s industry committee says their decision to skip the meeting is based on the fact that the Swedish government’s position on the controversial gas pipeline will be based on environmental factors, not political ones.

But Anders Ygeman, head of the environment committee in the Swedish parliament says he doesn’t think it is in Sweden’s interests to have a Russian gas pipeline in its economic zone. He says he is willing to discuss the issue with his Russian colleagues, but not by going to Russia and flying around in helicopters.
