Austria is interested in the Nord Stream-2 project as it opens new energy opportunities and would help the country to remain one of the world’s largest gas hubs, Russia’s ambassador to Austria told Sputnik Friday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Gazprom and its partner companies signed a shareholders agreement on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in September 2015. The prospective shareholders are Gazprom itself, with 50 percent of shares, Germany's Uniper SE and BASF/Wintershall (10 percent each), Anglo-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell (10 percent), Austria's OMV AG (10 percent) and France's Engie (10 percent).
“The fact that OMV entered the Nord Stream-2 project was a well-thought decision, which was supported by the Austrian government. Austria is interested in remaining one of the major gas hubs. It is clear that clear that the Nord Stream-2 construction and gas deliveries via the northern route to Austrian Baumgarten opens new opportunities,” Dmitry Lubinsky said.
Nord Stream 2 could provide up to 55 billion cubic meters of direct gas supplies from Russian shores through the Baltic Sea, bypassing Baltic states and Poland, to the German coast.
