Sabotaged Nord Stream Pipeline Releasing Large Amounts of Greenhouse Gas

The Danish Energy Agency said that according to an initial estimate based on the worst-case scenario, 778 million cubic meters of natural gas could escape from leaks at three Nord Stream pipelines that run under the Baltic Sea.

That’s the greenhouse gas equivalent of about 14.6 million tons of carbon dioxide, or about 2% of all U.S. methane emissions from oil and gas infrastructure, agriculture, waste and mining in 2020, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This would also equate to about 32% of Denmark’s total annual emissions, based on 2020 figures, the Danish authority said.
