ZUG, Switzerland – Offshore pipelay is progressing for the Nord Stream 2 gas line in the Baltic Sea, with 1,000 km (621 mi) laid to date in Finnish, Swedish, and German waters. 

Allseas’Solitaire and Pioneering Spirit are currently installing the section of the pipeline in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone.
