Construction of “Nord stream-2” cannot be resumed until August 3 when the appeal period for the updated Danish permit expires, APA-Economics reports quoting the Denmark's Energy Agency (DEA).

Earlier, the DEA announced that it had made changes to the permit for Nord Stream 2 AG to build “Nord stream-2” in Danish waters. In particular, the company is now allowed to use not only vessels with dynamic positioning but also anchored vessels when implementing the project. As the Agency explained, the pipeline route to be completed passes outside the risk zone of contact with chemical weapons buried at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

“Any party interested in the decision can appeal… Appeals must be submitted to the Energy complaints Board within four weeks of the public announcement of the decision, that is, until August 3. The permit (for construction) cannot be used before the expiration of the appeal period,” the DEA notes.
