Sputnik reported that Austrian Chancellor said at a press conference with Rainer Seele, the head of the Austrian oil and gas company OMV, his confidence that Vienna and its partners would manage to implement the Nord Stream 2 project. As a committed European, I personally treat this project as positive, just as the German government and many other countries in the European Union do. I think that together we will be able to implement this project.

Russian company Nord Stream 2 AG, which oversees the laying of the pipeline, said that the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction and the start of its operation can be delayed until the second half of 2020 as Russia has so far failed to secure a construction permit from Denmark.

The summary of the company's application to Denmark, published by the Danish Energy Agency, said "[Construction] permits have been granted in Sweden, Germany, Finland and Russia. Onshore and offshore construction preparatory works have begun in 2018 in all four aforementioned countries. The pipeline system is planned to be completed and ready for gas transport within the second half of 2020."

Meanwhile, the two previous applications submitted by the company suggested that the route should lie either south of Bornholm in Denmark's territorial waters or to the north-west of the island through the country's EEZ. The first application was filed back in 2017 and is still pending.
