German Wintershall decided to continue participation in the "Nord Stream-2"

37
The German company Wintershall announced the continuation of participation in the project "Nord Stream-2", after studying the new sanctions against the Russian Federation and explanations to them, published by the US Treasury, reports Expret Online.




We, of course, saw the clarification that was released by the US government, and first of all, I think this clarification clearly demonstrates that we will continue our support for the project. We finance the project together with other international companies
said Wintershall head Mario Meren.

Whether the explanation related to the US sanctions against Russia will affect the financing of the Nord Stream-2 project will become clear when we test the market. It means that the banking market is wide, it includes American, European, Chinese, Indian banks, they have different points of view on what and how to finance. I think it is very early to say what the impact of sanctions will be on the project’s financing structure,
He stressed.

According to him, “the next cash tranche of the project company Nord Stream 2 will be transferred as soon as a request is received from it”.

Experts point out that foreign participants in the Nord Stream 2 project can take advantage of "a legal nuance that suggests that if the project is financed this year, the sanctions on the subject of these actions will not be distributed."

Wintershall is a subsidiary of the German BASF group.

    Nothing personal .... just a business. And let the American mongrel from the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine choke on saliva in their impotent rage. SP-2 - BE! .... Yes, let the Danes shoot their feet as soon as possible, forbidding them to lay the pipeline through their territorial waters.

                So far there is nothing much to rejoice about, they said no today, they will have a talk tomorrow and go to the refusal, but nevertheless Wintershall’s decision is worthy of respect.

      Yes, even let the Danes quickly shoot themselves in the foot, banning the laying of a pipeline through their territorial waters.

      this is the most important thing at the moment, and not all sorts of winters .... Bulgarians refused, the Danes can, too, especially if the US clicks

    It is not in vain that Germany is considered the most economically developed country in Europe, it cannot be otherwise, because not finished fanatics who follow the lead of the United States live there.

      Yes, German business has long realized that the Americans are stupidly trying to separate them. Anyway, direct gas supply from Russia is extremely beneficial for the Germans. Both economically and politically. Therefore, no matter what they say or decide, SP-2 will be built.

        I agree, but only if the FSA does not go to the extreme option, the outbreak of war in the Baltic states. After that, gas deliveries through the pipe will not be possible, respectively, the price of gas in Europe will increase sharply and here just the liquefied gas from the FSA will go in shoals.

    German company Wintershall announced continued participation in the Nord Stream-2 project - understood that the Russian project is much better than the American imposition of its liquefied gas, which is much more expensive.

    " wide banking market, it includes American, European, Chinese, Indian banks, they have different points of view, what and how to finance "...
    He did the right accent ... Americans consider themselves gods on Olympus (with a capital letter and in the plural), who exercise their power in the world ...
    It will be only for Asian banks (and not only) to finance such a large project in order to maximize profit, which is their main goal ...

      And that is typical, everyone will be happy.
      Gazprom because it will no longer run gas.

      The Germans because they will become a seller of gas and welded.

      404 because it will refuse Russian gas and will burn "real European", and as you know it is better in any way wassat

      the population of 404 because it will be sawn and handed over for scrap to an now useless pipe

      VO visitors because healthy laughter benefits a person

    The pipe will pass through neutral waters, and here they all scream crazy! If the pipe goes along their coastal waters, then they will have to pay with gas or a green "ruble"

    carry out preparatory work to stop the transit of gas through B / NA. Drive the pipe to a smaller diameter. So that everyone understands that there will never be any more transit. Let them buy for personal use. After the execution of all previous agreements.

    The Americans, I think, understand that they are unable to stop work. They just make our work more complicated, and financing more expensive in the end. When there is a deficit in the financial market (albeit artificial), interest on the loan increases.

    German business decided to say loudly to the Americans - "this is our cow and we will milk it!" The Germans understand what good prospects loom ahead of them after the start of the pipeline.

    It’s interesting, but what is more profitable for Gazprom to deliver gas to Europe through a pipeline or to supply LNG gas by ships along the Northern Sea Route? Of course, the volumes are still different, but the price is different, taking into account delivery. I’m just tired of this fight for Nord Stream-2, who is not clear who is manipulating whom, it seems that they are us. It is necessary at the legislative level to fix the provision that after 2019, gas will not be supplied through Ukraine, without any reservations. Maybe then they will start moving faster and realize their benefit, without trying to get us to finance Ukraine.

    I think the Germans are reasonable people and understand that you don’t have to follow the path of the United States, but you need to do it as it will be better for yourself. Tomorrow America will come up with some kind of muck. And now what if I drown with firewood in winter or coal in little Germany ?? there is really neither one nor the other.
