The Swiss-based consortium that manages the pipeline will have to set up a company under German law, according to the Authority and broadcast by Reuters, in order to meet further prerequisites in order to obtain a pipeline license.

“The approval of the operation of Nord Stream 2 will be reconsidered only when the administrator is organized in a legal form compatible with German law,” it said in a statement.

The news is based on a number of factors that lead to higher gas prices in an “energy-hungry” Europe, as many in the Old Continent expected Russia to increase supply through the new pipeline.

The Dutch gas contract, which operates as a reference point in Europe, earlier recorded an increase of up to 12%, while at 12.04 noon Greek time gained 11%, to 88.82 euros per megawatt hour.
