Damage at Nord Stream lines unprecedented, time of recovery impossible to estimate

The damage that occurred at three lines of offshore pipelines Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 is unprecedented, with the time of recovery impossible to estimate so far, Nord Stream AG, the operator of Nord Stream 1, told reporters on Tuesday.

"The damage that occurred in one day simultaneously at three lines of offshore pipelines of the Nord Stream system are unprecedented. It is impossible to estimate the timeframe for the recovery of the gas transport infrastructure so far," the company said.

On the previous day Nord Stream AG said a pressure drop had been registered at both lines of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, with the causes being looked into. Earlier, a similar problem with a sharp decrease of pressure was reported at another export gas pipeline, Nord Stream 2. The incident occurred overnight into Monday in the Danish exclusive economic zone southeast of the island of Bornholm. Later the Danish Maritime Authority reported gas leakages not far from Bornholm in the areas where Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 are situated.

  1. Moscow is extremely concerned about the emergency situation at the Nord Stream gas pipelines, which is unprecedented and needs a prompt investigation, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

    On Monday, Nord Stream AG told Sputnik that a landfall dispatcher had registered a rapid gas pressure drop on Line A of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The incident occurred in the Danish waters near the island of Bornholm. Later in the day, the operator also said that a pressure drop had been registered on both strings of the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

    "Indeed, the pressure has dropped significantly, and this is indeed an unprecedented situation that requires urgent investigation. We are extremely concerned about this news," Peskov told reporters, calling reports on the emergency situation "very disturbing."

    When asked about the possibility of sabotage at the pipelines that led to the emergency, the official said that nothing can be excluded at this point.

    The situation with the Nord Stream affects energy security of the entire continent, he added.
