1. Germany Says Nord Stream 2 Picked a Ship to Finish Gas Pipeline

Nord Stream 2 has picked a ship to finish laying sections of its pipeline under the Baltic Sea, a German agency overseeing the work said, indicating the Russian company has found a way to get around U.S. sanctions that have halted the project.

Germany’s Maritime and Hydrographic Agency said on Tuesday “it assumes” the company building the natural gas pipeline will use the Akademik Cherskiy. If confirmed, it would end the mystery about how the Russia’s gas export company Gazprom PJSC will finish work after Switzerland’s AllSeas Group SA pulled out of the project last year.

The 9.5 billion-euro ($11.2 billion) will bring Russian gas directly into Germany, fanning tensions with U.S. President Donald Trump, who says Europe already is getting too much of its energy supply from its eastern neighbor. Congress in Washington is poised to impose a new round of penalties on companies working for Nord Stream 2, tightening measures imposed a year ago.


Europe is not so stupid as to have its gas supply depend on Poland and Ukraine.
