Environmental lawyers in push to stop gas pipeline in Finland

Environmental lawyers in push to stop gas pipeline in Finland”

"That means that any pipeline project, and there are multiple pipeline projects in the world that are potentially covered, is at an elevated sanctions risk", Bloomberg cited Oudkirk as saying. "We would be delighted if the project did not take place".

In addition, USA intelligence is concerned about the construction of the pipeline "Nord stream-2" from the Russian Federation to Germany, as it would allow Russian security services to accommodate the new technologies of listening and monitoring in the Baltic sea. In exchange, the American President wants to propose to Angela Merkel, the abolition of duties on steel and aluminum.

"Germany hooks up a pipeline into Russian Federation, where Germany is going to be paying billions of dollars for energy into Russian Federation".

The $11 billion project would double the amount of natural gas Russian Federation can funnel to Western Europe from newly tapped reserves in Siberia. It's also anxious the pipeline could open ways for Russian Federation to install undersea surveillance equipment in the Baltic Sea.

Opponents of the project - including Poland, the Baltic States, Ukraine, Moldova, USA and Denmark argue that the "Nord stream-2" will increase the EU's dependence on Gazprom, which already supplies about a third of the volume of gas in the EU.

Sandra Oudkirk, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy, told reporters in Berlin that Washington viewed the pipeline project as a bad choice, adding the US was skeptical whether Russian transit guarantees for other countries such as Ukraine were enforceable.

The United States also opposes the Turkish Stream offshore pipeline that would bring Russian gas via the Black Sea to Turkey for the same reasons, she said.

"The new project would permit new technologies to be placed along the pipeline route, and that is a threat", she said.

German officials have acknowledged a need to consider the interests of Ukraine.

Altmaier has said he is optimistic that a "substantial" amount of gas will flow through Ukraine in the future.
