Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia S.Lavrov asserted the construction of Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline is a commercial project, attempts to block it are of a political nature.
“We are confident Nord Stream-2 will increase energy security in Europe. The project is a commercial one and it joins a number of western companies. Efforts to block the project have a political character. The Americans are trying to make difficulties via their close friends in the North Atlantic Alliance,” RIA Novosti reports citing S.Lavrov.
Russian pipe manufacturers will share the margin with foreigners.
Russian pipe manufacturers, who won 60% of the lots for the supply of pipes for the Nord Stream 2, will have to share the profits with European steelmakers. OMK of Anatoliy Sedykh has already signed a major contract for the purchase of steel for the project from the Austrian Voestalpine (up to 40% of the volume), ChTPZ of Andrey Komarov also prepares to buy imported steel. Sources "The Kommersant" calls it part of a tacit agreement, but the pipe manufacturers claim that they only diversify supply risks.
