The Media Reported On The Refusal Of The Danish Company To Participate In The Nord Stream 2 Due To Possible Sanctions

The threat of US sanctions forced the Danish engineering and consulting company Ramboll to refuse to participate in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, local newspaper Politiken reported. The company declined to comment on the publication's information.

Ramboll is an engineering, architectural, and consulting company founded in Denmark in 1945. According to the company's website, Ramboll employs 16.5 thousand people worldwide and has offices in 35 countries.

Earlier, due to concerns about the imposition of US sanctions, the project was abandoned by the Swiss company Allseas, whose vessels laid the last section of the Nord Stream-2 in the territorial waters of Denmark. On completion of the pipeline were sent two Russian vessels, "Fortuna" and "academic plan." In total, Gazprom has about 150 km of pipe left to complete. Work on laying the last two strands of the gas pipeline is scheduled to begin on January 15.
