BERLIN, September 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The technology gas filled in the Nord Stream pipeline, which is 1,224 kilometres long, has reached Germany’s Lubmin, Steffen Ebert of the Nord Stream Company said on Sunday.
Technical gas is necessary to replace nitrogen from the pipeline and to reach necessary pressure. On September 6, Russia’s Prime Minister started filling the pipeline with technical gas.
It will take about a month to reach the pressure necessary for gas supplies, Ebert said. It is expected, the gas pipeline will go operational in November. Sources say that Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel will participate in the official opening ceremony.
