Norwegians are unhappy that the United States left them out of work in the Nord Stream 2 project


Another blow has been dealt to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline under construction - this time the Norwegian company DNV GL leaves the project. Opponents of the Russian gas route in the American parliament believe that now "a stake has been driven into the very heart of the project." About the discontent of the Norwegians policies Washington in relation to SP-2 writes Klassenkampen.


The Norwegian firm's global communications manager, Robert Conway, confirmed that DNV GL remains out of work in the Nord Stream 2 project due to the United States' approval of extended sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline. The Norwegians are forced to leave the lucrative energy project so as not to become another victim of the United States in the struggle for the European gas market.

In connection with the new sanctions, we had to curtail all activities on the "Nord Stream-2"

- emphasized Conway, expressing his dissatisfaction with the termination of cooperation with the Russians.

The Norwegian firm provided testing, inspection and certification services for the SP-2 pipeline system. The extension of US sanctions forced the Norwegians to stop working with the ships that were building the pipeline. DNV GL said in a statement that the company cannot issue a corresponding certificate upon completion of the construction of Nord Stream 2.

According to the official representative of the Swiss company Nord Stream 2, Jens Müller, sanctions from overseas affected the activities of 120 companies from 12 European countries, suspending investments in the pipeline totaling about 700 million euros.

    What ingratitude sad Brave descendants of the Vikings dared to express their displeasure? belay It's time to explain to them that they are responsible for the robbery and violence in the Middle Ages. Pay and repent, pay and repent, until the pale-faced overseas gets tired of it. laughing The main ally needs money, which means that the fierce nurses will have to shut up and tighten their belts.

    It's amazing to what extent all of Europe, from small mongrels to large bulldogs, sits in ... the USA!
    They are afraid to sneeze, they ask permission to go to the toilet across the sea ...
    Horror!
    But the "economy" "works" for them ...
    Squalor!

    What a strange article. First, the "Norwegians", then it comes down to the interests of one firm in Norway. But then "Norwegians" and "Norwegians" are everywhere.
    But if the brains are spread wider, then Norway is itself a producer of both gas and oil. This means that for Norway as a state, the elimination of a competitor is a blessing.
    You never know any firms in Norway. There, more than one hundred of them go bankrupt a year.
