Nord Stream: a gas pipeline to Europe under the Baltic Sea

Following the launch of Nord Stream's second pipeline, Gazprom is expected to invest in a third and fourth line for gas delivery to Britain and Germany.

Gazprom launched a second line to its Nord Stream project on Oct. 8, doubling the natural gas pipeline’s capacity. Expansion will not stop there, however, as the project’s shareholders are expected to make the decision to invest in a third and fourth line before this year is out. But with demand in Europe falling and existing projects operating below capacity, many analysts question the practicability of the decision.
