    First stretch of Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline completed on Friday morning Putin reveals, despite vehement US objections to scheme
    June 4, 2021

    Work on the first core section of a controversial underwater energy pipeline linking Siberia’s gas fields to Western Europe has already been completed, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday in a surprise announcement.

    Speaking at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, Putin said “I am pleased to say that today, just two-and-a-half-hours ago, we have completed laying the pipes for the first section of Nord Stream 2, and works are advancing on the second segment.”

    “The gas pipeline, including the segment under the sea, has already been completed,” the president added. “There are two sections, from the German side and the Russian side – they have to be welded – and then it will be finished.”

    The base station, he revealed, is “ready” to pump gas into Nord Stream 2 and begin supplying consumers in compliance with tough environmental standards. “We are willing to further implement high-tech projects like this with our European partners and partners elsewhere,” Putin declared.

    “We hope that the paradigm of mutual use and mutual benefit will always prevail over all kinds of artificial barriers from the current political climate.”

    On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Kiev stands to lose around $3 billion a year if Russia ceases to transit gas through the Soviet-built overland pipe network that runs across the country. The potential hit to revenue, he said, could make it difficult to fund the nation’s armed forces.

    However, Russian officials have said there are no short-term plans to end supplies, and that current transit agreements would be up for renegotiation when they expire in 2024.

    Nord Stream 2 had been the subject of fierce sanctions from Washington, with former president Donald Trump’s State Department issuing waves of restrictions and financial measures against firms involved in the laying of the pipeline. However, the project was consistently supported by officials in Germany, where it is set to terminate, despite American objections.

    US politicians had described the conduit as a “grave threat” to Europe’s “energy security, and American national security.” However, critics of Trump’s policy on the pipeline claimed more self-interested motives were at play, and according to Politico, a common refrain in Berlin is that “the Americans don’t care about Russia, they just want to sell us their fracking gas.”

    Last month, new US President Joe Biden said that he had come to office too late to stop construction on the pipeline and it would be “counterproductive” to sanction allies given that it was close to completion. However, his State Department previously said it would impose measures on “a handful of Russian ships” involved in laying the underwater segments.

    Both Fortuna and Akademik Cherskiy did good last day laying considerable pipe.
    Great to hear Fortuna finished laying the first pipe.
    I look at both ships every once in a while on MarineTraffic website.
    Akademik Cherskiy still seems to be in Danish EEZ waters laying the second pipe.

    The Poles will be upset about this. Doubt it will stop it but there will be a nasty delay. Might have to use more evil gas Laughing

    The 210-kilometre Baltic Pipe, estimated at a cost of up to $2.6 billion, was to link Danish and Polish gas consumers with Norwegian gas fields in the North Sea.

    The Danish Environment and Food Complaints Board has rejected the previously issued environmental permit to the Baltic Pipe project.

    The 210-kilometre pipeline, previously green-lit by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency in July 2019 and slated to start operation in October 2022, turned out to threaten the habitats and breeding areas of several protected mice species (including the hazel dormouse and the birch mouse) as well as bats. Both agencies work under the auspices of the Danish Environment Ministry.

    The Danes pulled the same regulatory delays on NS2. The Poles are total hypocrites, they were cheering before and now screeching
    tinfoil hat conspiracy theories about the Danes serving 3rd party interests. I guess Putin must have taken over Denmark. Such
    childish inanity.

    The Baltic Pipe is pure retard. It siphons from the pipeline which goes from Norway into Germany (EUROPIPE-II).
    They are stealing Norwegian gas which would go to Germany to go to Poland instead. Not making new routes into the EU.

    Correct. There is no new pipeline out of Norway. They are putting a T joint into the Europipe 11 to allow sales to Poland, Denmark, Sweden with the majority going, as you say, to Poland to bypass Germany. Capacity is 10B cm pa. The capacity of Europipe 11 is about 10% less than NS1. The Baltic stretch will have to be laid on top of NS1 and NS2, can see some discussion on that!

    They are not stealing Norwegian gas, that implies not paying, just diverting it.

    Putin discussing the German Green Party demand that Germany not buy Russian gas but US LNG instead. The so-called greens
    prefer the more expensive and dirtier fracked US gas than the cheaper and vastly cleaner Russian piped gas. Fracking involves
    the pressurized injection of hundreds and hundreds of tons of detergent type chemicals to enhance the hydraulic fracturing
    process. Putin should not be defending NS2. It is a project lobbied for by Merkel and serves Germany's interests. Russia
    can sell LNG to anyone on the planet and can now ship a lot of gas directly to China.

    The US fracking industry claim that they are clean because the chemicals stay very deep under ground. This is pap for the
    ignorant. Ground water moves through rocks and in fact it moves through the whole continental crust. There is no homogeneous
    rock layer acting like a transport barrier. There are always fractures that develop during rock formation and long term plate
    deformation. Also, the high pressure fracking actually opens up such fractures so the industry "experts" are lying when they
    claim that there is deep sequestration. They do not actually know the the extent of the dispersion of the chemicals including
    any traversal back towards the surface. Even there is no rupture on the surface, that does not mean that no return penetration
    has occurred.

    But the whole US LNG discussion is a total crock of shit. The US imports 80 billion cubic meters of gas from Canada. It does
    not have 150 bcm/year of export capacity for natural gas. What "US LNG" actually constitutes is 3rd party sourced natural
    gas from Qatar and even Russia itself. So Putin just exposes himself to unnecessary criticism. Let the Greens and all the
    other haters demand and believe what they want. They will be eating shit one way or another.

    Russian gas reserves were subjected to a propaganda attack in the last few years. The Yamal by itself is a massive reservoir of
    natural gas.

    I am a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council and the Founding Principal of International Market Analysis, a Washington, D.C.-based global risk advisory boutique. I advise law firms and corporations, and once helped to get a famous Russian oligarch...

    It is the same clown.

    Western haters are pathetic. This yapping chihuahua has been predicting doom and gloom for Russia for over 20 years. Trying to tout

    Nord Stream 2AG announced gas filling of the first string of Nord Stream 2

    Laying of the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is technically completed, the pipeline sections have been connected. Commissioning work begins on this line. This was reported by the press service of the Nord Stream 2 AG operator.

    According to the company, on June 10, 2021, two offshore sections of the gas pipeline were connected from Russia and Germany. Starting from June 11, on the first string, commissioning works on filling the pipeline with gas will begin, which will take "several months".

    The offshore section of the first string is technically completed (...) today the overlap has been completed - the offshore sections of the gas pipeline laid by Russia and Germany are interconnected

    - the message says. At the same time, the company stressed that the laying of the second string is proceeding according to the schedule in accordance with all available permits.

    On June 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the completion of work on the first line during his speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2021). In response, Ukraine said that the Russian president was bluffing and that it was technologically impossible to finish laying the pipes so quickly. This was stated by the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexei Danilov.

    At the same time, the United States acknowledged that they could not prevent the completion of the gas pipeline's construction, and promised Ukraine to compensate for the transfer losses due to the launch of Nord Stream 2.

    I would have expected Akademik Cherskiy to continue laying pipe from the Danish side and the Fortuna to come from the German side.
    But it seems they are switching places.

    Good spot. ATM they are about 8km apart with Fortuna to the north with the support vessels and AC on her own, both barely moving.

    Fortuna replaced Akademik Chersky at Nord Stream 2

    The Fortuna barge replaced the Akademik Chersky pipelayer during the construction of the second string of Nord Stream 2. The modernized and retrofitted vessel was never able to reach the planned pace of work.

    On June 10, the barge "Fortuna" completed all work on the completion of line B of Nord Stream 2 and set off on June 11 back from the German economic zone of the Baltic Sea to the Danish one. Yesterday, on June 12, the ship stopped at the construction site of line A, which had been previously abandoned by the pipelayer "Akademik Chersky". He was three miles away from the construction track.

    In addition to pipelayers, there are now 10 supply vessels in the work area. Today, June 13, the Fortuna barge was getting ready to start completing the second line.

    Its unfinished section is 85 kilometers long in Danish and German waters. However, in a month and a half, Akademik Chersky was able to lay 17 kilometers of the gas pipeline. In favorable weather, the speed of the vessel did not exceed 600 meters, and at such a pace of work, the pipelayer would not have met the deadline - until the end of September.

    In May last year, "Akademik Chersky" arrived from the Far East to the Baltic Sea and underwent additional equipment and modernization. The tender documents stated that the pipelayer should go to lay two kilometers per day. However, this did not happen. The project operator does not comment on construction details.

    At the same time, the speed of the barge "Fortuna" reaches 1,300 meters per day in favorable weather, and since February the ship has completed the unfinished section of line B "Nord Stream - 2" with a length of about 63 kilometers.

    Earlier, the project operator provided the Danish Energy Agency with an updated work schedule, according to which the construction of the second line should be completed by the end of September.

    On June 10, Nord Stream 2 AG announced that the offshore section of the first string of Nord Stream 2 is technically completed.

    “On June 4, the pipe-laying was completed, today the overflow was carried out - the offshore sections of the gas pipeline laid from the Russian and German sides are interconnected. Starting tomorrow, commissioning works to fill the gas pipeline with gas will begin. Pipe-laying work on the offshore section of the second string continues. All work is carried out in accordance with all necessary permits, ”the operator said in a statement.

    Oh, this is absolutely serious news. Recently, several statements were issued from Ukraine, the general essence of which is as follows: if Russia returns Crimea to Ukraine, compensates for the damage and gives 10-15% of the shares of Nord Stream to Ukraine, then Ukraine may mercifully take pity and ALLOW Russia to build Nord Stream 2.
    Damn, I even feel sorry for the Ukrainians - no one causes Ukraine more humiliation than those who have seized power in Ukraine at the moment.

Recently, several statements were issued from Ukraine, the general essence of which is as follows: if Russia returns Crimea to Ukraine, compensates for the damage and gives 10-15% of the shares of Nord Stream to Ukraine, then Ukraine may mercifully take pity and ALLOW Russia to build Nord Stream 2.
    Damn, I even feel sorry for the Ukrainians - no one causes Ukraine more humiliation than those who have seized power in Ukraine at the moment.

    The funny part is that many (most?) Ukrainians do not feel ashamed for that, they consider that being maintained by their Russian serfs belongs to their rights of birth as Ukrainians. It seems they need to sink even deeper in shit to wake up and you can bet they are going to keep at it and break all records, I just hope Russia forgets about them and lets them rot for a couple of generations at least thumbsup

    The Fortuna barge replaced the Akademik Chersky pipelayer during the construction of the second string of Nord Stream 2. The modernized and retrofitted vessel was never able to reach the planned pace of work.

    On June 10, the barge "Fortuna" completed all work on the completion of line B of Nord Stream 2 and set off on June 11 back from the German economic zone of the Baltic Sea to the Danish one. Yesterday, on June 12, the ship stopped at the construction site of line A, which had been previously abandoned by the pipelayer "Akademik Chersky". He was three miles away from the construction track.

    In addition to pipelayers, there are now 10 supply vessels in the work area. Today, June 13, the Fortuna barge was getting ready to start completing the second line.

    Its unfinished section is 85 kilometers long in Danish and German waters. However, in a month and a half, Akademik Chersky was able to lay 17 kilometers of the gas pipeline. In favorable weather, the speed of the vessel did not exceed 600 meters, and at such a pace of work, the pipelayer would not have met the deadline - until the end of September.

    In May last year, "Akademik Chersky" arrived from the Far East to the Baltic Sea and underwent additional equipment and modernization. The tender documents stated that the pipelayer should go to lay two kilometers per day. However, this did not happen. The project operator does not comment on construction details.

    At the same time, the speed of the barge "Fortuna" reaches 1,300 meters per day in favorable weather, and since February the ship has completed the unfinished section of line B "Nord Stream - 2" with a length of about 63 kilometers.

    Earlier, the project operator provided the Danish Energy Agency with an updated work schedule, according to which the construction of the second line should be completed by the end of September.

    On June 10, Nord Stream 2 AG announced that the offshore section of the first string of Nord Stream 2 is technically completed.

    “On June 4, the pipe-laying was completed, today the overflow was carried out - the offshore sections of the gas pipeline laid from the Russian and German sides are interconnected. Starting tomorrow, commissioning works to fill the gas pipeline with gas will begin. Pipe-laying work on the offshore section of the second string continues. All work is carried out in accordance with all necessary permits, ”the operator said in a statement.

    Well this is not good.

    Akademik Chersky is a much larger and advanced pipe layer than Fortuna. Its worrisome that it was not upto the task even after they bringing it up half way around the world from Nakhodka and also it went through upgrades as well. scratch
