Quantitative overview of Nord Stream 2 issues

The briefing document of the European Parliament offers a quantitative and comprehensive view on the issues with Nord Stream 2. This excellent figure alone explains a lot:

European Parliament Briefings: Russian pipelines to Europe and Turkey.

It may be interesting to realise that the points this document makes are underrepresented in popular press such as BBC. These concerns are discussed in measurable terms:

  • The existing capacity is enough
  • Nord Stream 2 harms the diversification of routes (Polish/Ukrainian paths reduced, Germany becoming the main hub)
  • There is a documented history of using the gas infrastructure for political purposes
  • EU bodies warned on political and security risks
