Meanwhile, the Danish military said the three gas leaks on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were visible Tuesday in waters off Denmark with bubbles spreading from 200 to 1,000 meters in diameter.

“The biggest leak is spreading bubbles a good kilometer (0.62 miles) in diameter. The smallest is creating a circle about 200 meters (656 feet)” in diameter, the military wrote in a statement accompanying photographs of the leaks off the Danish island of Bornholm.

Earlier on Tuesday, Nord Stream AG, the operator of the network, said that three offshore lines of the Nord Stream gas pipeline system sustained “unprecedented” damage in one day.
