Nord Stream: Denmark announces the end of the gas leak

According to Danish authorities, no more gas is leaking from the damaged Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea. The operator, Nord Stream AG, had been informed that the pressure in the pipeline had also stabilized at Nord Stream 1, the authority announced on Twitter on Sunday afternoon. This indicates that no more gas is escaping. The Danes had already announced the same status for Nord Stream 2 on Saturday.

Previously, large amounts of gas had escaped continuously for days from the four leaks in the two pipelines - two of them in Swedish waters, two in Danish waters. After several overflights over the area on Sunday afternoon, the Swedish authorities announced that gas was still escaping in areas of around 100 meters and the smaller leak around 15 meters in diameter. Although this was significantly less than a few days ago, it was the same as on Saturday. Forecasts were still assuming that there, too, the gas leak should stop on Sunday. According to the Swedish Coast Guard, it initially had no explanation as to why this happened more quickly in Danish waters.

Many states assume sabotage. At least two explosions happened underwater, Denmark and Sweden announced during the week. Seismological institutes have measured a strength of 2.3 and 2.1, which "probably corresponds to an explosive charge of several hundred kilograms".
