MURMANSK, September 26 – RIA Novosti. A leak occurred in one of the two Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines southeast of Dueodde, Denmark, creating a restricted zone around the pipeline, reported Danish Energy Agency.

“Danish authorities have been informed that there has been a significant pressure drop in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. According to preliminary estimates, a leak occurred in one of the two Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines in the Danish area southeast of Dueodde,” the report said. . . .

It was noted that the Danish Maritime Authority has created a five nautical mile forbidden zone around the pipeline and issued a navigational warning “due to the dangerous ship traffic”.

“Outside the restricted area, there are no security threats associated with the leak. The incident is not expected to affect the security of gas supplies to Denmark,” the agency said.

An emergency occurred in Nord Stream 2 in Danish waters near the island of Bornholm. Earlier on Monday, the operator reported that the pressure in line A of Nord Stream 2 (filled with technical gas) dropped sharply. The report also stated that coastal authorities in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia were immediately notified and the investigation was ongoing.

At the same time, the Danish Maritime Administration issued a message on Monday about a gas leak near the island of Bornholm that “could be dangerous to navigation”. Nord Stream 2 runs through the southeast of the island.

However, the German government stopped the certification of Nord Stream 2 AG as an operator in February. German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock said that “the project was actually frozen”.
