Three pipes of both Nord Stream gas pipelines may become unusable – Tagesspiegel citing sources

Latest news Ukraine

The German law enforcement authorities suggest that three pipes of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea may become permanently unusable after alleged acts of sabotage, Tagesspiegel reported.

If the pipelines aren’t repaired quickly, salt water will corrode them, the Tagesspiegel learned from German government circles.

On Sept. 26, the dispatcher of the Nord Stream 2 shore site recorded a sharp drop in pressure in the pipeline. Also, a gas leak was recorded from both threads of the Nord Stream 1.

Germany, Denmark, and Sweden are inclined to think that it may be sabotage.
