Gazprom said its two gas export pipelines Nord Stream 2 and Turkstream are both going according to schedule.
About 59 per cent of total length or 1,450 kilometres of Nord Stream 2 have so far been laid out in the Baltic Sea, Gazprom said. With an annual capacity of 55 billion cubic metres from Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea.
Pipelaying is currently underway in Finnish waters. In addition, onshore facilities are being built within the Russian and German sections.
In Russian territory, Gazprom continues its extensive efforts for the development of the northern gas transmission corridor, which will, inter alia, feed gas into Nord Stream 2.
Among other things, compressor shops are under construction at the Bovanenkovo – Ukhta 2 and Ukhta – Torzhok 2 gas pipelines. As part of the project for creating gas transmission capacities between Gryazovets and the Slavyanskaya compressor station (CS) in northwestern Russia, 858 kilometers of pipes have been welded within the 876-kilometer linear part, which is planned to go into operation this year. Works at the Slavyanskaya CS are in their final stage.
Meanwhile, stretching across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and further to Turkey's border with neighbouring countries, Turkstream will have two strings, each with throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
Pipelaying of the gas pipeline's offshore section in the Black Sea has been finished. The Russkaya CS and the landfall section in Russia, currently in the start-up phase, are ready to operate. Meanwhile, a receiving terminal is being constructed in Turkey, with over 80 per cent of the construction and installation work already completed.
