OREANDA-NEWSGerman Wintershall Dea did not receive complaints from the Polish antitrust regulator, who recently fined the French Engie for insufficient cooperation in the investigation of Nord Stream-2 by € 40 million. Wintershall Dea head Mario Meren told Russian journalists on the sidelines of the ADIPEC oil and gas conference Abu Dhabi.

"The Polish regulator did not fine Wintershall Dea. We cooperated with them from the very beginning of the process, and responded to the requests that we received from them", he said.

Meren said the Nord Stream 2 project will be completed before the end of this year. "The permission of Denmark is the last link, now the project has all the tolerances. If I’m not mistaken, the Danish part is 140 km, that is, 280 km for two branches. I am very confident that the construction work will be completed this year", he said . At the same time, Meren found it difficult to name the start date for laying on the Danish site. He added that the weather conditions in the Baltic with the approach of winter are becoming more difficult, but this factor is taken into account in the construction schedule.
