Trump mulls sanctions on Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

June 13, 2019 -- U.S. President Donald Trump has again criticised Germany over its Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline deal with Russia, threatening to impose sanctions on the project he says will leave Berlin “captive” to Moscow.

The Nord Stream 2 project will transport natural gas via a 1,200km pipeline from Russia to Europe. It has come under fire from the United States and some European countries claiming it could increase Europe’s dependence on Russia as a supplier of energy.

Washington, which wants to sell its liquefied natural gas to Europe, has threatened sanctions against companies involved in the Baltic pipeline. While it is wholly owned by Russian gas giant Gazprom, half of the project’s $9 billion cost is covered by five European energy and chemicals companies including Shell, BASF and ENGIE.

Russia, Finland, Sweden and Germany have already issued permits.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
