Germany sees Russia as stable energy partner as US demands Europe dump Nord Stream 2 pipeline

The pipe will go through the territorial waters of Finland, Sweden and Denmark. The project, led by the subsidiary of Russian energy giant Gazprom, is being implemented in cooperation with German energy firms Wintershall and Uniper, French multinational Engie, British-Dutch oil and gas giant Royal Dutch Shell, and Austrian energy company OMV.

The White House has repeatedly slammed the pipeline, threatening to impose sanctions on the European corporations that are participating in the project. Nord Stream 2 has also been opposed by some Eastern European nations, including Ukraine and Poland.

However, construction work is well underway with Nord Stream 2 AG, the company in charge of the project, receiving the final permits from Germany, Finland and Sweden.

Germany, which currently gets around 60 percent of its natural gas imports from Russia, is not planning to give up on the project, which is set to boost the country’s energy security.
