Joint Press Release of ENGIE, Gazprom, OMV, Shell, Uniper, Wintershall and Nord Stream 2 AG
Today, ENGIE, Gazprom, OMV, Shell, Uniper, and Wintershall (the applicants)
submitted their joint response to the Statement of Objections of the Polish
competition authority in the merger control proceedings regarding the planned
creation of a joint venture among the applicants.
Following that, the applicants have decided to jointly withdraw their merger control
notification from the Polish competition authority.
All the applicants believe that the project is crucial for the European energy system
and each of them will therefore individually contemplate alternative ways to
contribute to it.
The applicants’ decision to withdraw the notification will not affect the continuation
by Nord Stream 2 AG of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipelines as
planned, including its scheduling.
This press release may contain forward-looking statements based on current assumptions and
forecasts made by the Uniper SE Management and other information currently available to Uniper.
