Possible third blast at the same time as the second blast

Published 29-09-2022

The seismic data from the Baltic Sea potentially shows a third blast at the same time as the second blast at 07:03 PM on 26 September 2022 in connection with the gas leakages from Nord Stream.

As previously announced, GEUS’ seismographs have registered blasts in the Baltic Sea on Monday 26 September at 02:03 AM and 07:03 PM, where both time and location match the gas leakages from Nord Stream 1 and 2.

The Swedish seismologists at Uppsala University have stated that they with reservations may have found the signal from a third blast on top of the signal from the second blast that occurred at 07.03 PM on 26 September.

GEUS’ seismologists have also reanalyzed data from the time in question and with the same reservations may have found the signal from the third blast on top of the signal from the second blast that occurred at 07.03 PM on 26 September.

The seismologists have reservations about the analysis, because the signals from the potential third blast may also be reflections from the second blast that occurred at 07.03 PM on 26 September. Further analyses may produce more knowledge.

If two blasts have indeed occurred at 07:03 PM on 26 September, it has happened within few seconds and geographically close to one another.

GEUS has not registered any blasts in the Baltic Sea since the Monday 26 September at 02:03 AM and 07:03 PM where both time and place match the gas leakages of Nord Stream 1 and 2.
