UN, September 30 – Novosti. At the time of the explosion, Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 contained approximately 800 million cubic meters of gas in three strings, Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said via video link at a meeting of the UN Security Council.
“According to available estimates, there were about 800 million cubic meters of gas in the three lines of gas pipelines at the time of the incident. For comparison, this is Denmark ‘s consumption for three months,” he said.
At the same time, Kupriyanov stressed that Gazprom is looking for possible solutions to resume the operation of the Nord Stream system, but it is difficult to name the timing of the restoration. According to him, first of all, a physical examination of the places of damage is necessary.
On Monday, terrorist attacks took place simultaneously on two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe . According to information from the Danish and Swedish authorities , two gas leaks were discovered at Nord Stream and one at Nord Stream 2 near Bornholm Island. Germany , Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage.
