Finland demands more information about Russian-German pipeline

Publish date: March 5, 2007

Finnish authorities require more detailed information about the route for the projected Nord Stream gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea and deeper analyze the pipeline's impact on the environment

Swedish authorities have earlier expressed a similar concern about the huge project. A major part of the 1200 km pipeline will run over Swedish and economic zones, BarentsObserver reports. The Nord Stream pipeline, a 10.5 billion USD project that is expected to come online in 2010, will connect Russia’s Portovaya bay on the Gulf of Finland, near Sankt Petersburg, to Germany’s Greifswald via the Baltic seabed.

The Shtokman gas field in the Barents Sea is to become a main resource base for the Nord Stream pipeline.
