MOSCOW Oct 20 (Reuters) - The Nord Stream natural gas group, which wants to build a pipeline from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, has received clearance from the Danish authorities, the group said on Tuesday.

Nord Stream, which comprises Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM), Germany's BASF BASF.F and E.ON EONG.DE, said construction would begin in 2010.

The group is still awaiting permissions from Finland, Sweden and Germany. [ID:nN08527395] (Moscow Newsroom, + 7 495 775 12 42)
