NAccording to the operating company, a tube of the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea gas pipeline has been destroyed over a length of around 250 meters. According to preliminary investigation results, there are two craters on the seabed, each three to five meters deep, Nord Stream AG announced on Wednesday. They are therefore about 248 meters apart.
The section of line 1 of the double line in between was destroyed. Debris was scattered in a radius of at least 250 meters. According to Nord Stream AG, the announcement was preceded by the first investigations of line 1 in the Swedish exclusive economic zone (EEZ).
At the end of September, four leaks in the gas pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2 were discovered after explosions near the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm, two of them in the exclusive economic zones of Denmark and Sweden. The EU and NATO, among others, assume sabotage. Both double strands run from Russia to Lubmin in north-eastern Germany.
Nord Stream AG announced investigations in the Swedish EEZ last week. Approval from the authorities was therefore lacking for assessing the damage in the Danish EEZ.
