Germany suspends certification of Nord Stream 2

The situation was commented on by the Ministry of Energy of the Federal Republic of Germany, as well as by eco-activists.

Germany has suspended the certification process for Nord Stream 2 due to the re-registration of the organizational structure of the project.

This was announced by the German regulator BNetzA.

According to the regulator, it is planned to create a subsidiary for a highway located in Germany. The newly created branch will become the owner and operator of a part of the water supply.

Only if the legal company changes in accordance with German law, the certification process for the Nord Stream 2 operator can be resumed.

If all conditions are met, the process will be resumed and will take about four months

This decision caused a sharp rise in gas prices to $ 1,029 per thousand cubic meters.

At the same time, the cost of shares of & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; on the Moscow Stock Exchange dropped to 331.61 rubles, which was 2% of the value of the last transaction.

Commenting on the situation, the Ministry of Energy of the Federal Republic of Germany said that the suspension of certification would not affect the energy security of Germany.

How explained Susanna Ungrad (representative of the Ministry of Energy of Germany) the case is solely in the issue of the rights of economic entities. And the process, she said, will be resumed immediately after the grant from & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; all necessary documents.
