The project company building Russia’s 55 Bcm/year Nord Stream 2 gas link to Germany has applied for a permit for a third route for the Danish section, while slamming the delays in approving two existing requests.
Nord Stream 2 is still waiting for decisions on a permit request from April 2017 for a route through Danish territorial waters south of Bornholm, and one from August for a route through Denmark’s exclusive economic zone northwest of Bornholm.
The route through Danish territorial waters requires a positive recommendation from Denmark’s foreign ministry that the project is compatible with Denmark’s foreign, security and defense policy.
Elizabeth Warren is vowing to prohibit new fossil fuel leasing on public lands if she’s elected president, one of several new energy proposals she rolled out Monday before a campaign swing in two Western states.
Warren is set to discuss the public lands policies this week during campaign stops in South Carolina, Colorado and Utah.
Warren’s bid for a dramatic increase in renewable electricity generation on public land and offshore is a major turnabout from current policy.
The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has received an application for the construction of Nord Stream 2 on the third route, which runs in the exclusive economic zone of the country south of Bornholm, a spokesman with the agency told TASS.
As a result, the Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, failed to receive the permit for the construction of the pipeline in the Danish waters.
The pipeline will bypass transit countries – Ukraine, Belarus, Poland and other Eastern European and Baltic countries through exclusive economic zones and territorial waters of five countries – Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany.

Despite the ongoing transition across the Middle East towards a more diversified economic base, the refinery business was still the second-largest end-user market for gases (20% market share) in 2017 according to gasworld Business Intelligence, while in Bahrain it was the third-largest end-user market (13% share) in 2016.
