Underwater images show damage to over 50 m (165 feet) of Nord Stream 1 pipeline

nord stream gas leak september 2022

Underwater images show an explosion registered as an M2.3 earthquake on the Richter scale on September 26, 2022, damaged more than 50 m (165 feet) of one Nord Stream 1 pipe.

There have been several investigations of the gas lines where the explosions took place, the Copenhagen police, the intelligence service PET, and the Danish defense announced in a press release.

“The investigations have confirmed that there has been extensive damage to Nord Stream 1 and 2 in Denmark’s exclusive economic zone, and that the damage was caused by heavy explosions,” their joint press release reads.

Videos and images made by Swedish Expressen, show at least 50 m (165 feet) of the gas pipeline are missing or have disappeared into the seabed.1

“It’s an extreme force that can bend such thick metal in the way we see,” said Trond Larsen, who controlled the underwater robot that filmed the material.

None of the investigations carried out thus far state who blew up the pipelines, leaving people to draw their own conclusions based on the phrase ‘who benefits.’
