COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has offered Nord Stream 2 AG the opportunity to participate in the salvage of an object observed close to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea.
Danish authorities have investigated the object and the current view is that it does not pose an immediate security risk. It is cylindrical and measures around 40 cm tall and 10 cm in diameter, and could be a maritime smoke buoy.
However, to clarify what it actually is, the authorities have decided to salvage the object with assistance from the Danish Defence.
The DEA is now awaiting feedback from Nord Stream 2 AG, the pipeline owner, before the salvage operation gets under way.
