Handling of object in the Baltic Sea
The Danish Energy Agency has invited the owner of the pipeline, Nord Stream 2 AG, to participate in the operation to salvage the observed object near the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
Relevant Danish authorities have examined the object that has been observed by the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Baltic Sea. It remains the assessment that the object does not pose an immediate safety risk.
