Nord Stream 2

The Norwegian Navy was part of the September 2022 sabotage of the Russian Nord Stream pipeline. According to Seymour Hersh, in March 2022, members of a US Navy team flew to Norway to meet with the Norwegian Secret Service and Navy.[1]

One of the key questions was where exactly in the Baltic Sea was the best place to plant the explosives. The Norwegian navy was quick to find the right spot, in the shallow waters of the Baltic sea a few miles off Denmark’s Bornholm Island. The pipelines ran more than a mile apart along a seafloor that was only 260 feet deep. That would be well within the range of the divers, who, operating from a Norwegian Alta class mine hunter, would dive with a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and helium streaming from their tanks, and plant shaped [[C4] charges on the four pipelines with concrete protective covers.[1]

In Washington, planners knew they had to go to Norway. "They hated the Russians, and the Norwegian navy was full of superb sailors and divers who had generations of experience in highly profitable deep-sea oil and gas exploration," a source said to Hersh. They also could be trusted to keep the mission secret. The Norwegians may have had other interests as well. The destruction of Nord Stream—if the Americans could pull it off—would allow Norway to sell vastly more of its own natural gas to Europe.[1]
