Nord Stream 2 AG has appealed against a German court ruling on an exemption from the EU gas directive.
Tuesday, November 2, 2021
On May 15, 2020, the Federal Network Agency rejected Nord Stream 2 AG’s application for a derogation from the rules of the EU Gas Directive, which was amended in 2019. Nord Stream 2 AG claims that the company is subject to unlawful discrimination in connection with this directive. Among the main provisions of the directive is the separation of companies that supply gas and companies that transport it. This means that the Nord Stream-2 operator must be independent of Gazprom, and 50% of its capacity must be reserved for alternative suppliers. Exceptions are possible, but only with the approval of the European Commission.
