Blocking The World's Most Controversial Pipeline

  • Nord Stream 2 is now 93 percent complete and there is no realistic way that the project can be stopped
  • Washington is still determined to delay the pipeline for as long as possible
  • The ESG investment trend has exploded in recent years and oil companies are going to have to pay attention if they want to survive

Russia is now on its final leg of construction for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, and Washington is hoping--at the very least--to delay construction further via additional sanctions because this pipeline will essentially double Russia’s direct export capacity to Germany (the first EU entry point) to 110 billion cubic meters per year.
