“On January 15, 2020, Gazprom received a notification from the Polish Competition Committee requesting information and documents to conduct an investigation,” the Gazprom Prospectus says. The text of the document is quoted by RIA Novosti.
In November 2019, the Polish UOKiK imposed a fine of 172 million zlotys (about $ 44.7 million) on the French company Engie because it “constantly and unreasonably refused” to send the requested documents.
The case concerned the proceedings against the enterprises responsible for the construction of Nord Stream 2.
Nord Steam 2 commented on this decision of the Polish side, noting that “the statements of the Polish antitrust authority are not related to the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project, and the implementation of the project is“ based on compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. ”
As stated in Gazprom, the commissioning of the gas pipeline is scheduled for the end of 2020.
