Putin: Nord Stream 2 ready to be filled with gas

Russia's President Vladimir Putin stated on Friday that Gazprom Neft is ready to fill the Nord Stream 2 pipeline with gas.

Speaking at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Putin confirmed that the laying of the pipes for the first string of the pipeline has been completed, with the work on the second string continuing. Additionally, he also stated that all the linear work, including overland and underwater sections, on the pipeline has finished.

Earlier this week, Russian officials stated that the construction on the pipeline is nearly complete, while questions still remain whether the United States will sanction the pipeline, despite the country indicating they probably won't.
