Nord Stream 2 AG has welcomed the publication of a report by the Ramsar Secretariat on the Kurgalsky Nature Reserve, a wetland of international importance. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline passes through the reserve, requiring measures to protect its unique character and conserve biodiversity. In the report published, the Advisory Mission acknowledges and commends the undertakings by Nord Stream 2 AG to minimize impacts of its construction activities and to support long-term rehabilitation, restoration and site management of the Kurgalsky Peninsula Ramsar Site and Nature Reserve.

The Ramsar report concludes that impacts resulting from the cut and installation are local and largely confined to the construction corridor. They are assessed as not having adversely affected the overall ecological character of the Ramsar Site. The report further states that documentation produced by Nord Stream 2 AG represents a substantial body of work that greatly improves the understanding of the dynamics of the Ramsar Site and habitats found within the project site

The report has been issued following a visit by a Ramsar Advisory Mission) in November 2019, at the invitation of the Russian Ramsar Administrative Authority, the RF Ministry for Natural Resources and Environment, in line with the Russian Federation’s status as a signatory to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. During the visit, the RAM held meetings with regional and local officials, environmental NGOs and representatives of Nord Stream 2 AG, among other stakeholders.
