Denmark proposes law change to block Gazprom pipeline

Denmark proposes law change to block Gazprom pipeline:

"Denmark’s government wants to change the country’s laws in a way that could allow a proposed Russian gas pipeline to Europe to be blocked, in a sign of the growing unease in the EU over the project.

EU officials have been seeking ways to delay or halt Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline, fearing the initiative will strengthen Russia’s dominance of the European gas market and help the state-controlled energy group bypass Ukraine.

Lars Christian Lilleholt, Denmark’s energy minister, told the Financial Times that the government was proposing a bill to allow foreign and security policy considerations to be taken into account in assessing whether projects such as Nord Stream 2 should be allowed."
