Why is Nord Stream 2 important for Europe?

Nord Stream 2 is important for Europe’s energy supply, because we are still largely dependent on natural gas. Declining domestic production and increasing demand means that Europe needs new supply routes. That is what several experts from the energy sector said at the beginning of October during Russian Energy Week.

Nord Stream 2 is an important link in Europe’s energy supply, as this pipeline will provide a stable supply of natural gas for a long period of time.

This conference took place before Denmark gave the green light for Nord Stream 2. By now all agreements have been reached and the last segment of the pipeline can be laid.
