Regulatory Assessments

The Nord Stream 2 project is subject to national legislation in each of the countries whose Territorial Waters and/or Exclusive Economic Zones it crosses. According to the requirements of country-specific national legislation, Nord Stream 2 submits its national permit applications to competent authorities.

As part of the permit applications Nord Stream 2 has developed and submitted the following national EIAs that describe and evaluate the potential impacts originating in their respective countries:

  • Russia
  • Finland
  • Sweden
  • Denmark
  • Germany

The primary documentation associated with each of the national EIAs is available below. For more details on the country specific regulatory processes, please visit our corporate website.

Under the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context (“Espoo Convention”), certain industrial projects that have potential impacts that cross a national border, such as the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline project, need to take this assessment process a step further and assess impacts of a transboundary nature. An Espoo Report has therefore also been developed by Nord Stream 2 that addresses “transboundary impacts” that may originate in one country but affect another. The Espoo Report also provides an evaluation of the overall impact of the project in its entirety, across all countries that may be affected by it. The Espoo Report for the Nord Stream 2 project is available below.
