Nord Stream: Mystery leaks in Russia gas pipelines spark warnings

Source: BBC.

This is a curious story. Some speculate that the two pipelines have been sabotaged. If so, then geopolitical or merely industrial motives could be the reason. But why sabotage undersea pipelines that aren’t even in use?

Whatever caused the leaks, Germany faces a more precarious winter due to fewer energy supply options.

    1. This comment on another web site may be of interest.

      “I was the project planner for the Britannia offshore platform in the North Sea. It produced mostly gas and is now largely depleted.

      “I have been worried about this scenario for a long time. There is no need for divers. Remotely-controlled drones can do the job more easily. Lots of people in the oil business have the means to do this.

      “There are large proven gas reserves in the east Mediterranean. The problem is that there are maritime disputes between Turkey, Greece, the two Cypruses, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Gaza (Palestine) and Egypt. It is my contention that the existing projects will eventually be sabotaged. And the gas will never be exploited properly.

      “From now on, it will become almost impossible to raise project finance. The game is over.”
