Nord Stream II – The second branch of the sub-sea gas pipeline from Russia to Germany is highly controversial. While Gazprom and its EU partners highlight the commercial nature of the project and the diversification of supply routes; Central and East European countries fear that the pipeline project makes them more dependent on Russian gas.

The  event on “Different perspectives on Nord Stream II“ brought together key-experts who briefly introduced their key-findings on the regulatory and economic aspects of Nord Stream II.
