MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The length of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline route in Danish waters under the third construction permit application in Denmark exceeds the original route by 25 kilometres (15.5 miles), Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction project, told Sputnik on Monday.

Nord Stream 2 AG filed a request for another permit from Denmark earlier in the day — this time for construction of the pipeline along the third route, which runs in the exclusive economic zone of the country south of Bornholm Island.
