The Danish Energy Authority notes that there has been a significant leak.
The head of the authority said that the gas leak will continue for several days, and perhaps a week.
He adds that the large amount of bubbles on the surface indicates that the hole in the tube is too large.

The Danish Maritime Authority has issued a shipping alert and warns ships not to sail within five nautical miles of spills, because they could lose buoyancy and there could be a risk of ignition above water, the DEA said.
Nord Stream 1 was also damaged. Both pipelines built by Russia were at the center of an energy dispute between Russia and Europe.
