At the end of October, Denmark simultaneously approved the construction of two gas transit initiatives: Nord Stream 2 – over which intercontinental passions have raged – and the Danish–Polish Baltic Pipe gas pipeline, which for a long time attracted little attention, remaining virtually off the radar, and was authorized earlier than the Russian pipeline.
The creation of a consortium for building the Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline (TGP) made up of Edison Technologies, MMEC Mannesmann, Air Liquid Global E&C Solution, and the SINOPEC Engineering Group was announced in August 2019. Analysts believe, however, that the likelihood of the plans announced by the consortium being achieved are minimal due to a current lack of the necessary political, legal, financial and economic conditions for the project.
