The European Union plans to conduct a stress test of the physical security for key energy infrastructure as Norway said several European nations are sending help to safeguard its North Sea installations after the Nord Stream pipeline explosions. 

EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said Friday at a news conference that she will work with her home affairs counterpart, Ylva Johansson, to prepare the stress test plan as more countries begin to point the finger at Russia for sabotaging the pipelines.
