    Germany plans to convert Nord Stream II into LNG terminal

    June 24, 2022 - Staff Oil & Gas Magazine


      The pipelines running from the mainland to the sea could be connected to the mobile LNG terminal.

      The German Ministry of Economics is considering converting part of the controversial Nord Stream II pipeline into a connection for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal.

      Nord Stream II was built to transport natural gas from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea and, although completed, has not become operational due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

      The ministry's plan, according to information from "Der Spiegel" newspaper, is to expropriate the part of the pipeline that is in Germany and separate it from the rest of the system that is connected to Russia.

      The pipelines running from the mainland to the sea could be connected to the mobile LNG terminal.

      Technically, the operation is considered doable, but there are a number of legal issues that would have to be resolved.

      Gazprom, which is part of the consortium that should manage the pipeline, could reject the operation.

      Some company executives even expect the pipeline to be operational in two or three years, when the war is over and relations between Russia and Germany normalize.

      One fear in Berlin, according to "Der Spiegel", is that the measure will generate reactions in Russia in the form, for example, of expropriations of German companies.
