Nord Stream Transported 300 Billion Cubic Metres of Natural Gas to European Consumers

  • Pipeline utilisation of Nord Stream increased year by year until full capacity has been reached in 2018
  • The state-of-the-art twin offshore pipeline has fulfilled all nominations since commissioning in 2012

Aug. 19, 2019 | Zug, Switzerland | On 16 August 2019 Nord Stream AG has reached another milestone in its reliable supply of natural gas to European Consumers. To this day, more than 300 billion cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas have been safely delivered from Russia to the European Union through the Baltic Sea.

Natural gas plays a key role in the future of Europe’s energy supply, supporting the role of renewables and the coal phase-out. Nord Stream constitutes a vital pillar of the secure energy supply to Europe.

Since start of operations of Line 1 in November 2011 and Line 2 in October 2012, Nord Stream has steadily increased the volume of transported gas year by year and reached the full pipeline capacity utilisation in 2018.

“By providing capacities for transporting natural gas to the EU, Nord Stream has proven to be a reliable part of European supply infrastructure and the European energy mix,” says Konstantin Baskov, Technical Director, Nord Stream AG. “In light of energy transitions all over Europe, Nord Stream plays an important role to increase the security of supply and support renewables.”
