LIVE UPDATES: Pentagon Says Won't Get Ahead of Nord Stream Probe After Reports US Jets Circled Site

Being updated
On Monday, the Nord Stream AG operator registered a rapid gas pressure drop on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and Nord Stream 1 followed soon after.
NATO announced on Thursday that the alliance is in favor of investigations underway to establish the causes of the gas leak incident at the damaged Nord Stream pipelines.

"The damage to the Nordstream 1 and Nordstream 2 pipelines in international waters in the Baltic Sea is of deep concern. All currently available information indicates that this is the result of deliberate, reckless, and irresponsible acts of sabotage. These leaks are causing risks to shipping and substantial environmental damage. We support the investigations underway to determine the origin of the damage," the alliance said in a statement.

The bloc added that any attack on critical NATO infrastructure will prompt an immediate response.

Pentagon Says Won't Get Ahead of Nord Stream Leak Probe After Reports US Jets Circled Site
The United States will not speculate or get ahead of an investigation by European partners of the apparent sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, a Pentagon spokesperson told Sputnik on Thursday in response to reports that US aircraft circled the site of the incident throughout September.

Data from Flightradar24 analyzed by Sputnik showed that US military helicopters earlier this month, prior to the incident, regularly circled for hours around the area where the gas leaks occurred on the Nord Stream pipelines near Bornholm Island.

"We are not going to speculate or get ahead of European efforts to investigate the cause," the spokesperson said. "We stand ready to support European efforts to mitigate potential environmental impact."

Operator Plans to Start Damage Assessment at Nord Stream After Receiving Permits, Access Possible Only After Leaks Stopped
It is planned to start assessing the damage at Nord Stream after receiving official permits, and access to the required area can only be allowed after the pressure in the infrastructure would stabilize and the leakage stops, the pipeline's operator Nord Stream AG said.
"Nord Stream AG intends to start assessing the damage to the pipeline as soon as it receives necessary official permits. Access to the area of incidents may be allowed only after the pressure in the gas pipeline has stabilised and the gas leakage has stopped. Until the completion of the damage assessment, it is not possible to predict the timeframe for restoration of the gas transmission infrastructure," the company said in a statement.

Investigation of Explosions at Nord Stream Gas Pipelines May Begin on October 2 - Reports
The investigation of explosions at the Nord Stream gas pipelines may begin on October 2, CNN reported on Thursday, citing sources familiar with the matter.
According to one European official, it could take up to two weeks for a proper investigation to begin as the pressure in the pipes makes it difficult to approach the site, CNN said. At the same time, another source told CNN that the probe could be launched as soon as Sunday.
Denmark and Sweden are currently investigating the circumstances of the explosions at Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines under the Baltic Sea.
