UK government warns oil supply chain is ‘espionage target’

BEIS has warned that supply chain firms are an attractive target for hackers
Pipes are loaded onto a vessel in the northern German port of Mukran for transshipment to a storage yard. Nord Stream 2’s logistics concept aims to supply the materials needed in an efficient, timely and cost-effective manner, minimising impacts on the sensitive ecosystem of the Baltic Sea. This includes the transshipment of finished pipe links to storage yards along the route, where they will be just a short distance away from pipelay vessels once construction begins. Nord Stream 2 also conducts various stages of these operations at its other three key logistics hubs: the ports of Hanko and Kotka in Finland, and in Karlshamn, Sweden.
