Russian gas pipeline suffers unprecedented damage – operator


Recommended Posts

Don't know where else to post this. 

Crazy shit.. 

Even if the EU backed down and dropped the backfiring  sanctions the EU still won't be getting any Russian gas now. 

'They' have made sure of that now. 

Russian gas pipeline suffers unprecedented damage – operator

Estimating the level of destruction and repair timelines for Nord Stream is currently impossible, statement warns

The simultaneous destruction of three gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea is unprecedented, their operator Nord Stream said on Tuesday. It declined to provide an estimate of when they might be functional again.

 

Nord Stream 1 had been supplying gas to the EU until late August, when Russia slashed deliveries, citing technical difficulties resulting from Western sanctions.

 

“The destruction that occurred on the same day at once on three strings of the offshore gas pipelines of the Nord Stream system is unprecedented. It is not yet possible to estimate the timing of the restoration of the gas transmission infrastructure,” the company said.

 

On Monday, Danish authorities spotted a gas leak near the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, and closed off an area of five nautical miles (9.26km) around the site. The discovery came shortly after the unused Nord Stream 2 pipeline suffered a drastic loss of pressure overnight. German and Danish authorities are investigating the incidents.

 

Nord Stream spokesman Ulrich Lissek said a “large bubble field near Bornholm” was spotted, adding that “the pipeline was never in use, just prepared for technical operation, and therefore filled with gas.”

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Sweden’s Maritime Authority also reported leaks on the Nord Stream 1 pipeline northeast of the Bornholm island in Swedish and Danish waters, Reuters reported, citing the country’s officials.

 

“There are two leaks on Nord Stream 1 – one in the Swedish economic zone and one in the Danish economic zone. They are very near each other,” a Swedish Maritime Administration spokesperson said.

 

 

As the German Tagesspiegel newspaper reported on Tuesday, Nord Stream pipelines may have been damaged as a result of attacks. “A pressure loss in the two gas pipelines that occurred in rapid succession” could have happened due to a “targeted action,” it said.

 

Experts say repairs on both pipelines could take up to several years.

 

Lissek warned that it would be complicated to determine the reasons for the drop in pressure due “the sanctions regime and the lack of personnel on the ground.”

  • HAARPING_On changed the title to Nord Stream 1 & 2 Pipelines Both Down, Sabotage Hinted At...

An attack on infrastructure within NATO borders 🤔

 

Seems like the perfect pretext to really ramp up the proxy war with Russia. Denmark to invoke Artice 5 of the NATO treaty once they find "proof" of russian involvement?

Interesting that its near Bornholm, an island said to have links to Rennes le Chateau in France and is featured in the Holy Blood, Holy Grail book. Said to be a Knights Templar island, where their secrets are stored. Also featured in the video The Original Da Vinci Code with author Henry Lincoln. Bearing in mind Hitler's obsession with the Holy Grail, I wonder if there's something else going on here with this story. Lots of air and sea military activity in that area over the past few days and weeks too.

 

Also featured in several other books.

Does the remote Baltic island of Bornholm hold the key to an ancient secret? A secret that links it to the enigmatic village of Rennes-le-Château in the French Pyrennes and the tunnels beneath Mount Sion in Jerusalem? What is its connection with the Templar Knights, and what were they trying to hide on such a distant isle?

THE TEMPLARS’ SECRET ISLAND is a journey of awe-inspiring breadth and complexity, a journey that spans Europe and reaches into ancient Palestine, that first takes us thousands of years into the past and then back to our own time. It is a journey that casts new light on some of the most important enigmas of modern science.

A treasure mystery in the French village of Rennes -le-Chateau from the beginning of this century brings us more than 3000 years of history – and then forward the Middle Ages and the fabled order Templars and their immense wealth who vanished without a trace when the order was dissolved in 1307.

By probability of a historical connection between the Danish Archbishop Eskil and the Knights Templar Grand Master Bertrand de Blanche Fort corroborated the hypothesis that the Templars biggest secrets can be stored on Bornholm, where the Baltic Rundkirke represents the center of a geometry involving the island’s four round churches and eight of the island’s other equally enigmatic medieval churches.

At the same time reveals the geometry of a measuring system that is based on an accurate measurement of the Earth’s polar circumference. The evidence suggests that this goal is based in ancient Egyptian cubit , the Jewish cubit , the French toise , the Spanish vara – and the current British mil ! The conclusion is that “someone” throughout history and in modern times secretly protects and preserves certain ” traditions.”

Nord Stream leaks ‘not a coincidence’ – Borrell

The pipeline incidents “are the result of a deliberate act,” the EU’s top diplomat said

The gas leaks at the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines “are not a coincidence,” EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell said on Wednesday, adding that Brussels would support any investigation “aimed at getting full clarity.”

All available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act,” he said in a statement, without specifying who may be behind them.

Such incidents affect the entire EU, he added, vowing “to take further steps to increase our resilience in energy security.”

Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response,” Borrell warned.

His comments come after Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde indicated that the leaks could have been caused by sabotage, with an investigation into the matter still underway.

Gas leaking from Nord Stream 1 & 2 in [Swedish and Danish] exclusive economic zones are consequences of detonations, probably caused by sabotage. We continue to collect information and do not rule out any cause, actor or motive,” she wrote on Twitter.

 

Russia tells EU to treat US as pipeline sabotage suspect

Commenting on the leaks at a press conference she also noted that Stockholm didn’t initiate any contact with Moscow, despite the pipelines being owned by Russian energy giant Gazprom. While at the same time, Sweden has discussed the matter with Germany, NATO and Denmark.

 

Both Nord Stream pipelines, which connect Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, lost pressure on Monday, with a massive gas leak detected near the island of Bornholm.

Following the incident, Danish authorities closed the area to navigation.

 

Meanwhile, according to German media, Berlin has been investigating the leaks as a deliberate attack, carried out either by pro-Ukrainian forces or Russia itself in a possible false flag operation to make Kiev look bad. It could also drive energy prices even higher, and exacerbate the energy crunch in Europe.

 

The Kremlin, however, signaled that it was very concerned by the incident and called for an immediate and thorough investigation into the matter, adding that it would affect the energy situation on the “entire continent.”

 

Nord Stream 1 has been in service since 2011, but has been operating at a reduced capacity since the end of August, with Russia citing technical difficulties caused by Western sanctions.

 

Construction of Nord Stream 2 began in 2018, but it suffered delays due to political pressure and sanctions from the US. It was finished and pressurized in September 2021; however, two days prior to the start of Russian military operation in Ukraine, the German government put its certification on indefinite hold, refusing to unblock the pipeline.

Russia tells EU to treat US as pipeline sabotage suspect

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has asked who the EU intends to punish with the “strongest possible response” for damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

 

The diplomat said Poland's former foreign minister has already identified the US as the party behind the apparent sabotage. Radoslaw Sikorski is well connected to Washington elites through his employment at various think tanks.

 

The two Nord Stream pipelines were seriously damaged this week in what is suspected to have been a deliberate attack.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Tuesday called the incident “sabotage action” and warned that “any deliberate disruption of active European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response.”

 

On Wednesday, Zakharova asked who exactly the warning would apply to.

“I don’t get it. MEP Sikorski thanked the US for what had happened, so whom is Ursula ‘threatening’ there?” she wrote on social media.

 

Zakharova was referring to the reaction to the incident by Sikorski, now an EU lawmaker, who posted a photo of the site where the explosions occurred on Twitter with the words: “Thank you, USA.” He described the incident as a “special maintenance operation.”

Sikorski added that “there’s no shortage of pipeline capacity for taking gas from Russia to Western Europe, including Germany,” referring to the Yamal-Europe land pipeline that goes through Belarus and Poland. After the damage to the Nord Stream strings, Russian President Vladimir Putin “will have to talk to countries controlling” the alternative route to resume supplies, he predicted.

 

Zakharova earlier asked if Sikorski’s tweets amounted to an “official statement that this was a terrorist attack.” Meanwhile, Dmitry Polyanskiy, the Russian deputy ambassador to the UN, thanked Sikorski for “making it crystal clear who stands behind this terrorist-style targeting of civilian infrastructure!”

 

There has been no shortage of threats from some Western nations against Russian undersea pipelines, particularly the Nord Stream 2 both before and after late February, when Moscow sent troops into Ukraine. It had been ready to pump gas since September last year, but was not put into operation due to Germany’s refusal to certify it. Polish President Andrzej Duda demanded last month that the pipeline be “totally scrapped.”

 

US President Joe Biden warned in early February, before Russia began its military operation in Ukraine, that if Moscow acts against Kiev, “there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.” A journalist asked him to clarify what exactly he meant, to which Biden responded: “I promise you, we will be able to do that.”

 

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken commented on the incident on Tuesday, stating that attacking Russian pipelines was “in no one’s interest.”

CIA warned Germany of pipeline attack – Spiegel

US spies allegedly told Berlin about a threat to Nord Stream “weeks” ago
 

CIA warned Germany of pipeline attack – Spiegel

Germany was forewarned ahead of this weeks attack on gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, Der Spiegel claimed on Tuesday.

The CIA told Berlin "weeks ago" that the Russian Nord Stream infrastructure was vulnerable, according to the magazine.

Officials are now investigating after a massive gas leak appeared off the Danish island of Bornholm and seismologists confirmed detecting explosions on the sea floor.

 

A tip from the US spy agency was “received in Berlin during the summer,” the outlet said, citing “several people familiar with the matter.” Officially, however, the federal government declined to comment on intelligence-related matters.

 

German security services are currently examining satellite imagery of the area where the explosions occurred, but see only “unremarkable” naval traffic, according to Spiegel. They are also convinced that only a state actor could have done this, suggesting “divers or a mini-submarine” could have installed mines or explosives on the pipeline.

 

Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 both suddenly lost pressure on Monday. Danish authorities reported a gas leak off Bornholm, while Swedish seismologists registered multiple explosions. The pipeline operator confirmed multiple gas lines suffered “unprecedented” damage and it was impossible to estimate when, or if, service might be restored.

By Monday evening, the German government was convinced the pipeline was targeted in a deliberate attack, according to the daily Tagesspiegel. Berlin was considering the possibility Ukraine or “Ukraine-affiliated forces” could be behind it, but also a “false flag” by Russia to make Ukraine look bad and drive EU energy prices even higher.

 

While acknowledging that the “permanent interruption of gas supplies from Russia” would be in Ukraine’s interest, Der Spiegel said such an attack would have “immense political disadvantages” for Kiev. The only motive for Moscow to blow up the pipeline, according to the magazine, would be to “blame other parties for the incident.”

 

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has called for an investigation to get “full clarity” on what happened with the pipeline. “Any deliberate disruption of active European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response,” she tweeted.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said an attack on Nord Stream was “in no one’s interest,” but that it also represented a “significant opportunity” for Western Europe to abandon Russian natural gas in favor of alternative energy supplies, presumably such as US LNG, and “accelerate the transition to renewables” in order to fight climate change.

 

Meanwhile, Polish MEP Radislaw Sikorski thanked the US for the gas explosion, and argued that it means Russia will now have to negotiate with Ukraine and Poland if it wishes to deliver gas to Central Europe.

Was the Nord Stream gas leak caused by sabotage?

The following is courtesy of Kiwifarms.net (which is back despite efforts to get them off the internet).

USS Kearsage was close to Bornholm Island (Danish) and the Nord Stream pipeline. A US helicopter with the call sign FFAB123 is cited as the possible culprit using an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle of some sort. A sea-drone if you will.

Feel free to check this info!

It has all the hallmarks of the Battle of the gulf of Tonkin where the USA provoked an attack from the Vietnamese to get the Vietnam War started. Another satanic sacrifice of young men.

Putin has been in power for 22 years, you'd think if he wanted to cause war and international damage he might have done it by now. Ofcourse its hard to say but the  US and Western media have been goading Russia for years now. Most of his actions seem to be with a view to protecting his country, rather than aggressively attacking others.

 

As I said in the  Minor News thread, there has been considerable naval and airforce activity around this area for weeks now, in the Baltic area and the North Sea. Why this area? You could see it was building up to something.

Yes it was Admiral George S Morrison father of Jim Morrison lead singer of the Doors that got it going in  Gulf Tonkin

whilst his son helped lead the counter culture thing.

What's the chances of that ?

Now this latest script or is even AI now even ?

And anyone sensible would realise that Russia sabotaging their way of income and profiteering through this pipeline would come to the conclusion it could not be them. How would that benefit Russia?

 

This is the yanks all over and they clearly want everyone to suffer despite kowtowing to their demands when this special operation kicked off and that still wasn't enough.

 

False flag in my opinion. Watch the water.

hang the f*** on a second, has anyone seen the amount of military ships surrounding EU right now? it has been like that for a couple of months? possibly longer. How in the...did this occur whilst so many various countries military being around the area? It was allowed to happen, right?

And yet hardly any around the Black Sea area. It makes sense when the rumours are of dragging Poland and Scandiavia into a war. Where better than a place that affects all of their borders.

 

Looks like they might have tried it earlier this month - Sept 5th. Exactly the same area.
