MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. The gas-in procedure for the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has been completed as the string has been filled with around 177 mln cubic meters of technical gas, the operator of the project said in a statement on Monday.

“As of October 18, the gas-in procedure for the first string of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been completed. As planned and in line with the system design requirements, the string is filled with some 177 million m3 of so-called technical gas, reaching a pressure of 103 bar in the pipeline. This pressure is sufficient to start gas transportation in future,” the statement said.

Pre-commissioning steps for the second string are ongoing.
