German regulator can't say when certification process for Nord Stream 2 will continue

FRANKFURT, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Germany’s network regulator on Wednesday said it was currently unable to say when it would resume the certification procedure for Nord Stream 2, after its operator said it had registered a subsidiary for the German part of the gas pipeline.

“The certification procedure will remain suspended until the transfer of the main assets and human resources to the subsidiary has been completed and the Federal Network Agency will be in a position to check the subsidiary’s documents for completeness,” the regulator said in a statement.

Setting up a German subsidiary had been a key requirement by the regulator before resuming certification, which was suspended in November. (Reporting by Christoph Steitz Editing by Madeline Chambers)
