In 2019, Nord Stream AG transported 58.5 billion cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas to consumers in Europe through the Nord Stream Pipeline. Thanks to uninterrupted operation throughout the year, the pipeline was loaded at a level comparable to that of 2018.

By the end of 2019, a total volume of 322.5 bcm of gas had been transported since the commissioning of Line 1 of the Nord Stream Pipeline in November 2011.

Nord Stream AG ensures the reliable, safe and efficient operation of the twin pipeline. Scheduled maintenance and inspection works of the pipeline are performed in accordance with industry quality standards. In 2019, annual preventive maintenance works were carried out in July.

The twin pipeline system through the Baltic Sea with a length of 1,224 kilometres is the shortest connection for European consumers to the vast gas reserves in the north of Russia. It stretches from Vyborg, Russia to Lubmin near Greifswald, Germany. By transporting natural gas, the Nord Stream pipeline system plays a key role in supporting CO2 reduction goals in Europe. It increases security of supply for consumers and strengthens the competitiveness of European industry.

Thank you for your report. It is really nice to see a story about Nord Stream that concentrates on security of supply and is entirely free from United States and eastern EU member block's propaganda. Europe must have a free energy market, supplied from as many sources as possible to minimize geopolitical disruptions and not be held captaive to USA's imperialistic energy policies that try to subvert that effort in the guise of funding not "evil empires", but real free market competitors, which rather unsurprisingly, can manage to deliver such supplies at cheaper cost than they.
Well done.
