STOCKHOLM, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Sweden’s Maritime Authority said on Tuesday it had issued a warning of two leaks on the Nord Stream 1 pipeline in Swedish and Danish waters.

“There are two leaks on Nord Stream 1 – one in Swedish economic zone and one in Danish economic zone. They are very near each other,” a Swedish Maritime Administration spokesperson told Reuters.

The leaks were located northeast of the Danish island Bornholm, the spokesperson said. It was not immediately clear what had caused the leaks.
