VYBORG, Leningrad region, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev plans to visit Germany in November, when the Nord Stream’s official launch is scheduled and the customer supplies begin.
“Dmitry Medvedev plans to visit Germany. He will have an opportunity to meet with the German chancellor and discuss this issue,” Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told Germany’s ex-chancellor Gerhard Schroeder after pressing a start button to fill the Nord Stream pipeline with technical gas.
Putin thanked foreign partners for the project’s implementation.
“A big international team worked on this project,” he said noting that the team included experts from 23 countries.
He underlined that 100 million euros were invested into environmental studies, including 13 million euros for installing a permanent monitoring system that allows to take diagnostic samples along the pipeline’s route.
Putin stressed importance of the increase in gas exports to Europe.
“The volume of gas supplies is compatible to the power generated by 11 nuclear power plants,” he said.
“For less than 18 months we’ve built 1.224 kilometers and another 640 kilometers of the second phase,” Putin said. “The work proceeded under different conditions – both climate and financial ones.”
