BERLIN, October 5. /TASS/. Ex-chancellor of Germany Gerhard Schröder has become the Chairman of the Board of Nord Stream 2 company - operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, Germany’s media outlet Tagesspiegel reported on Wednesday citing a source in the company.
The company confirmed such information, the media outlet said. Schröder earlier headed the consortium for construction of the first stage of the gas pipeline.
Switzerland-based Nord Stream AG was founded for planning, construction and operation of two lines of the Nord Stream-2 subsea gas pipeline. Gazprom currently holds 100% of shares in the company.
Gazprom’s European partners in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project - Engie, OMV, Shell, Uniper and Wintershall - confirmed their position to facilitate its implementation, the Russian gas holding said earlier on Tuesday.
