Scholz called the decision on Nord Stream 2 non-political

MOSCOW, Dec 17 The German Federal Network Agency (BNA) is dealing with the certification of Nord Stream 2 AG as the main operator of Nord Stream 2 “completely without politics,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said at a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron following the EU summit. BNA Jochen Hohmann said that the regulator, for its part, is unlikely to complete the procedure in the first half of 2022. He explained that Nord Stream 2 AG has begun the process of establishing a German subsidiary, as previously recommended by the agency. However, the timing depends on when the company receives the necessary documents. Nord Stream 2 AG is working on establishing a subsidiary in Germany In the case of Nord Stream 2, we are talking about a commercial project, the implementation of which has progressed so much that “now the pipeline is already underway.” He recalled that at this moment the issue of compliance of the line with European energy legislation is being considered.

In November, BNA suspended the certification of Nord Stream 2 AG as an independent operator until it creates a German subsidiary that will reapply. Once the new application is submitted, BNA will resume the process and make a decision within the remaining four months. Then the draft decision of the German regulator will be presented to the European Commission. The procedure is necessary for the pipeline to comply with the updated EU Gas Directive. Its regulations state that the pipeline must be partially filled by an alternative supplier, or its section in the EU must belong to a third-party company. As Russian Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said, the delay in certification of Nord Stream 2 is a political decision. According to him, in this approach, “apart from politics, there is nothing else.” However, this situation confuses “foreign policy – Western and internal German”, associated with the change of government in Germany. two months exceeded $ 1700
