The application documents for the construction and operation of the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline in the 85 km-long German segment will be available for public consultation at several locations in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania starting from April 18, 2017. According to a press release by the company for the construction of Nord Stream 2 the full documentation will be accessible for review and comments by the general public until May 17, 2017 in the offices of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in Hamburg and Rostock, the Stralsund Mining Authority, and the administrative offices of Bergen auf Rügen, Lubmin, Mönchgut-Granitz, Usedom-Nord, Anklam-Land and the city of Putbus.

“The availability of the documents for public review marks the start of the public consultation phase, which is a key component of the permitting process for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline,” said Jens Lange, Permitting Manager Germany at Nord Stream 2 AG. “Our plans build on the extensive experience and significant monitoring results gathered with the existing Nord Stream project.”

The results of the extensive environmental surveys and planning are an important part of the 6,000-page application materials. These documents include a general proposal, an assessment of alternatives, a technical explanatory report, an environmental impact analysis, a flora-fauna-habitat impact study, a legal biotope protection assessment, an expert paper on species protection regulation, an accompanying conservation plan and expert papers on the Water and Marine Strategy Directives, as well as documentation volumes and application papers.

Nord Stream 2 AG’s Swedish permit application was also sent out on public referral by the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation. The public referral pertains to Nord Stream 2’s planned offshore pipeline system on the Swedish continental shelf – outside Swedish territorial waters – in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The route will stretch for approximately 510 km in Swedish EEZ and run broadly parallel to the existing Nord Stream pipelines.

It will be available for public referral until June 2017.
