Nord Stream 2 Receives Full Set of Permits in Germany

On 27 March 2018 the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany issued the Nord Stream 2 AG the permit for the construction and operation of the 30-kilometres-long pipeline section in the German Exclusive Economic Zone in accordance with the Federal Mining Act (BBergG).

The Stralsund Mining Authority had on 31 January 2018 approved the construction and operation of the pipeline in the German coastal waters (within 12 nautical miles) as well as its landfall area.

“We are pleased that all necessary permits are now in place for the 85 kilometers-long German route section,” said Jens Lange, Permitting Manager for Germany at Nord Stream 2 AG.

The extensive process for the approvals was carried out in accordance with German national law since April 2017. The national permitting procedures in the other four countries along the pipeline route — Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark — are proceeding as planned. Nord Stream 2 AG expects the remaining permits to be issued in the coming months.
