Dialogue with the Experts

Nord Stream 2 is committed to an open and transparent dialogue with stakeholders to ensure that decisions on the Nord Stream 2 project are based on proven expert opinion and clear scientific facts.

Nord Stream 2 makes a point of communicating with the relevant parties: authorities, NGOs, the local community, scientific and research experts, institutes and other organisations. The objective is to disclose information about the project while also giving stakeholders the opportunity to provide their opinions about it.

As a responsible project developer, Nord Stream 2 will maintain an open dialogue with the expert community throughout all phases of the project.

As has been identified during the initial discussions and information meetings with stakeholders in Russia, the key concern is related to route selection. The Narva Bay route is considered by the project developer as the preferred option, based on comprehensive assessments by independent consultants and experts.

The Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have provided a positive feedback to the reports on comparative environmental assessment of the route options for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline in Russia.
