The Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline operator has sent a special vessel to Swedish waters to investigate the explosions that occurred in september. This was announced on Thursday by the Swiss-based Nord Stream AG, which is in Russian hands.

Specialists on the ship will need 24 hours to prepare for the inspection work, which will take from three to five days. The specialists are in contact with the Swedish Navy.

Sweden and Denmark have now come to the conclusion that the gas pipeline was damaged by explosions. The countries have not indicated who may be responsible, but that it is likely to be sabotage.

Nord Stream AG also wants to conduct research in Danish waters, but has not yet received permission from the Danish authorities.

Due to the incidents, the gas supply from Russia came under further pressure. European countries are therefore busy replenishing their stocks as much as possible.
