Nord Stream: large cloud of methane over Norway and Sweden – Europe

After the gas leak from the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, the level of methane on Sweden and Norway is at record levels, according to the Swedish and Norwegian media, which speak of a ‘big cloud’. 96% of the gas in Nord Stream 1 and 2 was methane. According to the calculations of Stephen Matthew Platt, climate scientist at the Norwegian air research institute Nilu, this is about 40,000 tons of methane released by the suspected sabotage: “The emissions correspond to double the annual methane emissions of the industry. oil and gas in Norway. They are record levels, never seen anything like this before in Norway and Sweden. “

Russia has ‘material’ indicating the West’s involvement in the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines. This was stated by the head of Moscow’s foreign intelligence service, quoted by TASS.
“We already have some materials that point the western trail in the organization and implementation of the terrorist attack” on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines, said SVR head Sergey Naryshkin. “In my opinion, the West is doing everything to hide the real perpetrators and organizers of this terrorist attack,” he added.
