This is stated in the official statement of the regulator. This means that the OPAL gas pipeline has fallen into disgrace. Moreover, the operator company is now prohibited from participating in additional auctions for gas pipeline capacities, which are subject to a court decision.
We remind you that the OPAL gas pipeline is a continuation of the offshore section of the Nord Stream gas pipeline. In turn, the EUGAL gas pipeline under construction, running parallel to the OPAL gas pipeline, will be a continuation of the offshore section of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
Given the court’s decision, now Gazprom will not be able to participate in the auction for gas supplies through the OPAL gas pipeline, which is due to take place on September 16, 2019. However, than to drown in winter, let the Germans think for themselves, and thank the neighbors - the Poles. The most interesting thing is that the German regulator is ready to fine Gazprom if it supplies more gas to the Germans. Gazprom has the right to only 50% of the capacity of the OPAL gas pipeline. And apparently, EUGAL is waiting for a similar mess.
