The permit for the construction of Nord Stream 2 in Germany economic zone in the Baltic Sea has been suspended, reports Interfax citing German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).

The permit, which was in effect until the end of May and applies to a 16-kilometer stretch of pipeline under construction, has been suspended due to a lawsuit filed by environmentalists, said a representative of BSH.

In April, Germany's Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) tried to challenge the regulatorís permit directly, citing the fact that the pipeline area is of special importance for nesting birds, and also "destroys the habitat on the seabed spanning the area of more than 16 soccer fields."

The Federal Office for Shipping and Hydrography rejected the environmentalists' claims, after which they appealed to the court in Hamburg.

The NABU filed a lawsuit on Monday, May 3. In mid-April, another environmental organization, Deutsche Umwelthilfe, filed a similar lawsuit.

Due to the lawsuit, the permit for Nord Stream 2 AG, Gazprom's Swiss-registered subsidiary, had been temporarily suspended, BSH told Interfax.

"Now the court will make the decision. But, so far, the construction permit issued until the end of May is not valid," the official said.
