first_imgNord Stream 2 AG, a subsidiary of Russia’s Gazprom and operator of the Nord Stream 2 offshore gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea, has filed an appeal against the decision of the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) related to a construction permit for its pipeline. Pioneering Spirit installing the pipeline in Swedish waters. Source: Nord Stream 2 AGOn April 17, 2019, Nord Stream 2 AG filed an appeal against the March 26th decision of the DEA related to the North-western permit application requesting the company to investigate and submit an environmental impact assessment (EIA), accompanied by a permit application, for a route south-east of Bornholm to the Danish Energy Board of Appeal.The appeal claims that the decision is illegal. Consequently, the decision must be annulled such that the DEA proceeds with the granting of a permit for the North-western route for Nord Stream 2 without delay, Nord Stream 2 AG said on Tuesday.“As a prudent project developer and in order to preserve the company’s best interests Nord Stream 2 filed the appeal, but also on 15 April submitted a separate permit application for consent to lay the pipeline to the south-east of Bornholm,” the operator said.To remind, the operator has submitted a third application for a route through Danish waters while accusing Denmark of making deliberate attempts to delay the project by asking for the third route option. This third application for the pipeline route through Danish waters was submitted on Monday, April 15 more than two years after submitting the first application.The third application, together with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), covers a route in the Danish exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the waters south of Bornholm.Nord Stream 2 already has two pending applications with the DEA. The operator claims that both of these permits have shown that all technical and environmental prerequisites are fulfilled and a construction permit could be granted for either route.In a statement earlier in April, Nord Stream 2 AG accused Denmark of deliberately trying to delay the project: “Asking for a third route option to be developed, despite two fully processed, ready-to-be-permitted applications on the table, can only be seen as a deliberate attempt to delay the project’s completion.”Nord Stream 2 was designed as two parallel 48 inch lines, roughly 1,200 kilometers long, each starting from south-west of St Petersburg and ending at German coast, Greifswald. Nord Stream 2’s natural gas pipelines will have the capacity to transport 55 billion cubic meters (bcm) of Russian gas a year to the EU, for at least 50 years.Denmark is not the only country where the giant pipeline project has faced obstacles. Namely, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project has been under fire from the European Parliament as well as a number of U.S. senators last December who called for its cancellation due to security reason.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

first_imgChennai: All-round Chennai Super Kings (CSK) rode M.S. Dhoni’s brilliance to get back to the top of the table with a commanding 80-run victory over Delhi Capitals (DC) in a top-of-the-table Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Wednesday.Asked to bat first, Dhoni first helped CSK recover from a slow start to post 179/4 with an unbeaten 22-ball 44.The World Cup winning, former India captain then not only used his spinners to perfection as they shared eight wickets among them, but effected two brilliant stumpings to skittle DC out for a paltry 99 in 16.2 overs. Imran Tahir starred for the hosts, returning figures of 4/12.With one game to go, CSK have 18 points from 13 matches while Delhi remain on 16 points from 13 outings.Chasing 180 for victory, DC were in the game till the time Shikhar Dhawan (19) and skipper Shreyas Iyer (44; 31b; 4×4; 1×6) were at the crease. The pair stitched together a 48-run stand for the second wicket.But once Harbhajan Singh (1/28) castled the World Cup-bound India opener just before the end of Powerplay, and in the next over, Tahir saw the back of Rishabh Pant (5), it was all over for DC as they lost wickets in a hurry.Dhoni showed exceptional reflex even at the age of 37 to effect two stumpings which cost the wickets of Iyer and Chris Morris, both off Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. Jadeja was excellent with the ball too, with figures of 3/9 in his three overs.Earlier, Suresh Raina struck a half century but it was Dhoni who helped CSK post a competitive total on a wicket that wasn’t easy for batting.Chennai recovered from 53/1 at the halfway stage as Dhoni hit four fours and three sixes to extend his rich form with the bat. Jadeja’s quickfire 25 off 10 deliveries also helped as Delhi missed pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada, who was rested, in the death overs.The visitors leaked 77 runs in the final five overs after Raina (59; 37b; 8×4;1×6) was dismissed in the 15th over.In that period, Dhoni first combined with Jadeja for a 43-run partnership as both were promoted up the order, to then join hands with Ambati Rayudu for a 34-run unbroken stand for the fifth wicket.Dhoni continued his love affair with last overs, smashing Trent Boult for two sixes off the last two balls and a four earlier as the New Zealana pacer conceded 21 runs.The defending champions could manage only 27/1 in the Powerplay overs after losing Shane Watson for a duck, with J Suchith (2/28), playing his first game, accounting for his wicket.Raina and Du Plessis then associated for a 83 run partnership but consumed 61 balls before Du Plessis was dismissed by Axar Patel, with Shikhar Dhawan taking the catch at long off.Raina, who brought up his 37th IPL fifty in 34 balls, was removed by Suchith after Dhawan took a brilliant catch off balance but once Dhoni was in the middle, and Jadeja hit a few lusty blows, Chennai ensured their stuttering start made no difference.Brief scores: Chennai Super Kings: 179/4 (Suresh Raina 59, MS Dhoni 44 not out; J Suchith 2/28) vs Delhi Capitals: 99 all out in 16.2 overs (Shreyas Iyer 44; Imran Tahir 4/12, Ravindra Jadeja 3/9, Harbhajan Singh 1/28).
