Denmark considers Nord Stream 2 permits
Ture Falbe-Hansen, a spokesman for the Danish Energy Agency, said the government was reviewing new plans submitted for the second leg of the gas pipeline running through the Baltic Sea to Germany. The Danish Foreign Ministry is still considering the permits necessary to double the pipeline. Sweden's government issued the permit necessary for Gazprom to build and operate the 507 km section of the planned second leg of the Nord Stream gas pipeline in its territorial waters in June. Russian energy company Gazprom is doubling the pipeline in order to add more capacity to the network's existing 760-mile artery.
