Norway predicted a rise in electricity prices without Nord Stream

Norway predicted a rise in electricity prices without Nord Stream

Electricity prices in Norway could seriously rise if the Nord Stream gas pipeline does not resume operation, said Oil and Energy Minister Terje Osland.

“If the gas pipeline, through which energy carriers are transported from Russia to Germany, is not restarted, there will be even more problems. It is highly likely that prices will skyrocket,” he said.


According to the minister, the risk of introducing electricity rationing in Norway is small, but it still exists. In addition, rationing in other countries will also have serious consequences for the kingdom. The only guarantee that this measure will not have to be resorted to can only be high production and uninterrupted supplies of oil and gas to Europe, Osland believes.
