(ANSA-AFP) - COPENHAGEN, SEP 27 - Two leaks have been identified on the Nord Stream 1 Russia-to-Europe gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea, hours after a similar incident on its twin pipeline, Scandinavian authorities said Tuesday. "Authorities have now been informed that there have been another two leaks on Nord Stream 1, which likewise is not in operation but contains gas," the Danish climate and energy minister Dan Jorgensen told AFP in a statement. Following the leaks, Jorgensen said the authorities called for "higher levels of preparedness in the electricity and gas sector" in the country. One of the leaks on the Nord Stream 1 pipeline occurred in the Danish economic zone and the other in the Swedish economic zone. Like the leak on Nord Stream 2 the day before, the incidents are "subject to safety measures". (ANSA-AFP).
