Monitoring of Nord Stream 2 Construction in Russia: No Significant Impact on Environment

The environmental monitoring of the Nord Stream 2 offshore and onshore construction in Russia shows that impacts have been in line with or less than predicted, confirming the conclusions of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report.

Impacts of Construction in 2019 Were Consistent With or Less than Assessed

The monitoring of Nord Stream 2 offshore construction activities in 2019 shows that there were no impacts other than those that had been predicted. In the Russian onshore section, there were no significant impacts on the biotic and abiotic environment of the protected area.
Impacts of Nord Stream 2 Construction in Swedish Waters were Minor, Local and Short-term

Impacts of Nord Stream 2 Construction in Swedish Waters were Minor, Local and Short-term

The monitoring of Nord Stream 2 construction in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) show that the impacts of construction activities implemented in 2019 only had minor, local and short-term impacts to the Baltic Sea. New knowledge was obtained on higher frequency noise emanating from vessels moving in the Baltic Sea.

By 2035, the EU will need to import about 120 bcm more gas per year

By 2035, the EU will need to import about 120 bcm more gas per year

The production outlooks of major gas producers such as Netherlands and UK, as well as Norway, are falling. At the same time, demand for gas is expected to continue, owing to its lower carbon qualities. This means that the EU will need to import more gas. Nord Stream 2 will have the capacity to meet about one third of the EU’s import requirement.

Generating electricity from gas instead of coal produces ~50 percent less CO₂

Generating electricity from gas instead of coal produces ~50 percent less CO₂

Switching from coal-fired power generation to gas can help the EU meet its goal of reducing CO₂ emissions 40 percent by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. In fact, Nord Stream 2 could save about 14 percent of the EU‘s total CO₂ emissions from power generation if natural gas from the pipeline were used to replace coal-fired power stations.
