Nord Stream methane 'cloud' set to reach Italy

No health risk say experts

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 30 - A part of the 'cloud' of leaked gas from the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines is expected to arrive over Italy on Friday, said Bernardo Gozzini, the director of the National Research Council's (CNR) Consorzio Lamma environmental monitoring body.
    Gozzini said the forecast was based on data from a report by the Norwegian Institute for Air Quality (NILU).
    A estimated 80,000 tonnes of methane has leaked from the pipelines.
    Gozzini said there was no risk to public health as the gas is diluted in the atmosphere to a high degree. (ANSA).
