Nord Stream 2 Pipes Bought by Gascade, Berlin Says

< br />

BERLIN, Sep 5 Pipes previously intended for Nord Stream 2 were sold by the government to the gas transmission operator Gascade, according to the German Ministry of Economy.
“Pipes stored in (port) Mukran and not intended for further use have passed to the federal government. They have now been sold to Gascade as part of the expansion of the pipeline network,” the report said.

On Monday, a representative of the German Ministry of Economy said during a briefing by the Cabinet that the government had sold pipes previously intended for Nord Stream 2 to an unnamed company involved in the construction of a gas pipeline between a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal near the island of Rügen with Lubmin on the coast of the Baltic Sea.

Earlier, the German gas transmission network operator Gascade received permission to start construction of the OAL (Ostsee Anbindungsleitung) gas pipeline from Lubmin to the island of Rügen in the Baltic Sea.
In May, the German-language edition of Business Insider reported that the German government bought pipes destined for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from bankrupt operator Nord Stream 2 AG for 70 million euros.
In February, the newspaper Welt am Sonntag reported that the German authorities want to use the pipes left in warehouses after the construction of Nord Stream 2 to build a pipeline that will connect the LNG terminal near the island of Rügen with Lubmin (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania federal state) . It was clarified that we are talking about about 3 thousand pipes.
A later publication reported that the German government, in view of the sanctions against the Russian Federation, agreed with the US authorities on the purchase. It was reported that there would be no obstacles to this if the Russian side did not get the money for the sale.
