Finnish authorities have approved the construction and use of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline through the country’s waters.

This was the second of two permits required to construct and operate the planned Russia-built pipeline in the Finnish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), completing the permitting procedure in Finland, the pipeline operator said in a statement on Thursday.

The pipeline between Russia and Germany would be long around 375 km of Finland’s economic zone through the Baltic Sea.

All necessary permits needed for the pipeline have also been approved in Germany. The project is currently collecting permits from Russia, Sweden and Denmark.
