The one-loop diffractive amplitude for emission of two real gluons with widely different rapidities is studied in the Lipatov effective action formalism. It is shown that after integration over longitudinal momenta in the loop the resulting expression coincides with the one obtained by the Lipatov–Bartels formalism in transversal space provided the same prescription is used to exclude divergent contributions as previously proposed for emission of a single real gluon.
