Natural gas grid: the Swedish-Soviet negotiations

The European natural gas grid.


Over the past 50 years, the European natural gas grid has slowly developed from smaller local grids to a large, almost all-encompassing technical infrastructure. This development can be seen as one of the prime examples of successful European technical integration across the Iron Curtain. However, in Northern Europe there is what may be seen as a gap in the European natural gas grid, and this entry discusses some of the unsuccessful attempts to bridge this gap.
