The largest Europe gas supplier Norway said it will match down its armies to protect the important building. This he decided on after the alleged attack. Jonas Gahr Stoere the prime minister made known to the news conference giving that the military that will be at the oil and gas installation will be no more visible. He tolls forward that any attack seen will be fought concurrently with allies.

Police should increase their presence at the onshore facility while the navy will be deployed to the offshore installations. An energy company Equinor said it has stepped up security measures.

Nord Stream pipeline: what happened

It is made known that Nord stream pipeline 1 is made of branches. It is seen that it stretches from the Russian coast which the Baltic sea is underneath and it is near St Petersburg northeastern Germany which is around 745 miles.

It was reported by the seismologists that there was an underwater blast before the leaks were seen. The footage was released by Denmark’s defence and it shows bubbles at the surface of the Baltic sea. The national seismologist in Sweden said there is indeed an explosion after seeing the footage.

A deep explanation was made by mike Fulwood to the BBC about how the leaks came about. He is a trusted researcher from the independent university of oxford institute for energy studies. He said to rift an offshore pipeline, 3 in 18hrs would be a great coincidence because such a thing is rare. He concluded that if it is caused by the Russians, he said it could be an inexplicable move. This he said in light of Russians haven shut off supplies
