Fresh Legal Fight Erupts Over Nord Stream 2 As Europe Energy Costs Soar Ahead Of Frigid Winter

Just ahead of Monday’s announcement that the North Stream 2 Russia to Germany natural gas pipeline has begun filling with gas in the first line while awaiting approval from Germany regulators before it goes fully online and the taps are turned on, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko in weekend statements had warned that political opponents are ready to exploit “legal squiggles” to prevent it from finally going operational.

“I will stress once again: all the necessary steps, including in the legal field, have been taken and we firmly hope that this project will be implemented,” Grushko explained, while warning of the “rather complicated” process for receiving legal certification on the European side. Crucially signs of a final inter-EU political fight have already emerged, as Bloomberg details, European lawmakers “who supervised the European Parliament’s work on EU gas market legislation, said NS2 doesn’t meet the conditions for German certification because it fails to meet the unbundling criteria (which ensures as gas provider is prevented from simultaneously controlling the transmission side of the business).
