Nord Stream 2 is a double-edged geopolitical tool

When Pavel Zavalny, chairman of the Russian parliamentary committee on energy, forecast last Friday that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline could start shipping natural gas to Germany as early as next month, it was received with disbelief.

But Zavalny was categorical, and was quoted by Reuters as saying: “I can say with a high degree of certainty that the first gas via Nord Stream 2 will go in January.” 

He added that Europeans would not want to drag their feet with the certification process over Nord Stream 2 at a time when their storage levels of gas are so abysmally low.
