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.

Sweden reports that seismic sensors detected explosions near the location of the leaks.
Denmark as well. Funny that the gas had already bee cut off by Russia through NORD Stream I.

“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.”
