On 28 October, Brussels lifted a cap on Russian gas giant Gazprom's use of the Opal pipeline, the land branch of the Nord Stream line which connects Russia and Germany, bypassing Poland.

Poland contested the decision in the European Court of Justice.

Previously OPAL was being used at 50 percent capacity. Under the European Commission’s decision, this would be increased to 80 percent. (vb)
