 |  February 4, 2016

Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has extended its review of the proposed Nord Stream-2 natural gas pipeline joint venture by four months, the regulator said in a statement Thursday.

“UOKiK issued a decision to extend by four months the deadline for the completion of the procedure for the creation of the six-party joint venture responsible for the construction and operation of Nord Stream-2,” the statement reads.

The antitrust regulator received an application to create the Nord Stream-2 AG joint venture in mid-December.
