“Gazprom and Uniper reaffirm commitment to deliver Nord Stream 2 on time”

Gazprom / Financial Times

Russian and German energy companies Gazprom and Uniper confirmed their intention to bring the contentious offshore gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 into operation on schedule, Gazprom said in a press release. In a separate article, Financial Times (FT) reported that the company would reveal a financing package by the end of March. After pressure from Poland’s anti-monopoly watchdog, a consortium of energy companies including Uniper had decided to withdraw from a joint venture to pay for the pipeline in August 2016. European companies were still preparing to find a way to contribute to the pipeline’s construction, writes FT, citing Gazprom sources.
