Could yesterday evening's quake under the Baltic Sea have to do with the gas leak?

A major gas leak appeared yesterday from 3 separate breaches of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, which until the summer had been used to deliver gas from Russia to Central Europe, mainly Germany, before being shut down.
Given the scale of the event and the appearance of several leaks at the same time authorities assume it is the result of sabotage without so far being able to pinpoint further details.
Interestingly, a small quake was detected at about the same time last evening by the Norwegian NORSAR agency. It is unclear whether there is a connection of not, but if a violent hit or detonation at the pipeline is indeed the cause, it might very well have left the seismic signal attached, which is dominated by a short lateral (horizontal) movement.
