Sputnik reported that the Swedish government has approved the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in its waters, the minister for enterprise and innovation, Mr Mikael Damberg, said at a special briefing. He said that "The government gives permission to Nord Stream 2 to lay a gas pipeline in the economic zone of Sweden in the Baltic Sea. Sweden has no way of saying 'no' to the project."

Nord Stream 2 AG company said that preparatory work for construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in Sweden will begin in coming months.

The company said that "Preparatory seabed intervention works, such as pre-lay rock berms and concrete mattresses for cable crossings, will start at specific sections along the Swedish route in the coming months, while pipe laying in the Swedish EEZ is scheduled to start later this year."

The project's operator, Nord Stream 2 AG, has already obtained a license to build an underwater section of the pipe in German territorial waters and an input terminal in Germany. A similar license has been provided by Finland, where preparatory work at an undersea section of the pipeline is already underway.
