- Gazprom is planning to start flowing natural through the first leg of the Nord Stream 2 link to Germany on October 1
- timing of actual flows into Europe’s gas grid will still depend on a decision by the German regulator

- Natural gas prices in Europe are at all-time highs and inventories there are extraordinarily tight ahead of the winter.
The long-awaited approval from German regulators may well come sooner rather than later.
