Member of the Board of Austrian OMV, Manfred Leitner appealed to the European Commission with a request to pay attention to the positive sides of the gas pipeline project «Nord stream-2».

«I would like to ask the European Commission to pay attention to the positive aspects of this project instead to show him distrust,» said lightner in a speech at the European gas conference.

«This project involves funding for five European companies, it is not subsidized, and manage the project is «Gazprom»… it’s designed for Europe and, we believe, to the security of the European energy market. A significant part of the investment (made on the «Nord stream-2″ — ed.) goes to the European market, which obviously contributes to the economy of Europe,» he said.

The project «Northern stream-2» involves the construction of two pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas off the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The new pipeline is planned to be build next to the «Nord stream».
