Background

The goal of the project is to increase the level of gasification of the North-West and Central regions of the Russian Federation, as well as to transport gas from the Yamal peninsula to European consumers.[1] The pipeline will start in Gryazovets, where it would connect to the Northern Lights Gas Pipeline, and run to Slavyanskaya compressor station, where it would connect to the Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline. The pipeline would run parallel to the Gryazovets-Vyborg Gas Pipeline and Gryazovets-Volkhov Gas Pipeline until Volkhov, where it would branch out in the direction of the Slavyanskaya compressor station. The Slavyanskaya compressor station is the head station of the Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline. It is located in the north of the Kingisepp District of the Leningrad Region and is intended for the preparation, compression and transportation of natural gas through the pipes of the offshore section of the Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline laid along the bottom of the Baltic Sea to the receiving terminal on the German coast.[1]

The pipeline has started construction in the first quarter of 2018.[4][5] In March 2020, the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller announced that construction of the project was still underway.[6]
