In particular, restrictions can be introduced against the Austrian oil and gas company OMV. The minister noted that she monitors discussion in the USA of possible sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline long ago. "I always spoke, including to the colleague (to the U.S. Secretary of State. — RNS) Pompeo that pipelines are under construction not in order that to tease someone. They are under construction for gas transportation. And too most madam told (the German chancellor. — RNS) Merkel — here we speak about commercial interests. Indeed" — Knaysl said during the joint press conference with the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov. Knaysl reminded that earlier the directive of European Commission on gas which covers many questions sounded, in particular, by the USA was accepted. "Punishment of certain enterprises does not fit into given (international legal. — RNS) the mechanism, mechanisms, and in terms of international law this question gives rise to even more questions" — she added. "Nord Stream — 2" — the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea 1220 km long and 55 billion cubic meters in a year. It directly will connect the Russian resource base and the European consumers. It is expected that the construction of the gas pipeline will be completed at the end of 2019. On March 6 the Nord Stream 2 company, the operator of construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, reported that she constructed 818 km — 1/3 projects.
