The tremors occurred near the Danish island of Bronholm in the Baltic Sea, near which the Nord Stream gas pipeline exploded in September 2022. This is reported by Bloomberg, citing data from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
According to the agency, the tremors were felt on Bronholm, where around 40,000 people live. Initially, seismologists suggested that they were caused by an earthquake or a controlled explosion in Poland, but later this version was rejected.
The service’s latest statement says the shocks “were most likely sound pressure waves from an event or events somewhere in the atmosphere.” At the same time, what exactly caused these surges, experts are struggling to say.
Previously, the shareholder of the Nord Stream project, the German company Wintershall Dea, had announced that it did not plan to restore the gas pipeline. They added that the priority is to save the environment in the region.
