On the night of September 26, a sharp drop in pressure was recorded in line A of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline due to a hole in the pipe. In the evening of the same day, the Nord Stream control center recorded a pressure drop in both lines of the gas pipeline, the press service of the Nord Stream operator company reported.
Ulrich Lissek, a representative of the Nord Stream 2 AG pipeline operator, clarified that the pressure dropped from 105 to 7 bar due to a hole in the pipe.
The Nord Stream and Nord Stream-2 gas pipelines pass through the exclusive economic zones and territorial waters of Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. Judging by the map published on the website of Gazprom, both branches of the Nord Stream pass near the southeastern side of Bornholm Island, while the leak is recorded to the northeast. The gas leaks occurred near the Nord Stream gas pipeline northeast of Bornholm Island, the Danish Maritime Administration said.
