Work on Nord Stream 2 Goes on in Compliance with EU Legislation - Gazprom | Network with Nord Stream 2 AG and Gazprom Germania

Discuss the role that Gas Storage and Transmissions has to play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply, and how regulators are rejuvenating this dynamic market.

London, United Kingdom, May 11, 2016 --( Work on the Nord Stream 2 gas project between Russia and Germany is going on in accordance and in full compliance with EU legislation, a manager of the Russian energy giant Gazprom said last week on Thursday. The Nord Stream 2 is the gas pipeline joint venture, which is expected to provide an additional route for the Russian gas to Germany through the Baltic Sea, bypassing the three Baltic countries and Poland. Gazprom started the project with a consortium of five largest European energy companies, including Shell and E.ON. The Nord Stream 2 project plans to use the original Nord Stream pipeline for 86 percent of the route before branching off. It will be able to provide up to 55 billion cubic meters of Russian gas supplies to Europe.

Against this backdrop, SMi's 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference, taking place on 15th - 16th June 2016 in London, UK, will provide the ideal platform to discuss the role storage and transmissions can play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply, in addition to the role regulators have to play in rejuvenating this dynamic market. Case studies will be provided on current and future infrastructural developments across Europe, including the Turkish, Nord and South Streams and the forthcoming Nord Stream 2 project. The two-day event will assess whether diversifying gas supply routes and new interconnector projects can meet the growing need for natural gas imports in Europe as production in the North Sea continues to fall.
