Assembly of missiles for Sea Launch will be carried out in the USA

53
Interfax-Ukraine referring to Natalia Fileva, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the S7 Group, reports that the final assembly of the missiles for the renewable Sea Launch program will be carried out in the USA. This is the Sea Launch project, which for a variety of reasons has previously been virtually frozen.


From the statement of Natalia Filev:
There are orders (we are talking about launch orders, - note “VO”), a lot of people are standing in line, we offer a good price. We expect profit, but not immediately. We will invest quite a lot of money, but we understand that we have to earn.


Assembly of missiles for Sea Launch will be carried out in the USA


Further, Ms. Fileva says that in Ukraine, company representatives will “collect something”, and the entire process of the final assembly will move to the United States.

Reference Information:
S7 Group is a holding with Russian jurisdiction. 100% of the holding's shares is owned by its founders - Natalia and Vladislav Filev. The holding structure includes C7 space transportation systems, which (in the case of the project) will be the owner of Sea Launch. It is important to note that С7 space transport systems became the first Russian commercial company that has the right to provide international space services.

In the summer of 2017, the Ukrainian Yuzhmash signed a contract with S7 for the production and supply of 12-ti Zn Zenit.

      Yes, no matter how surprising it is, the classic formula clearly works:
      nationalization of losses
      privatization of profits.


      However, anyway, it turns out somehow disgusting.

        And the decision to build in penal dossia was determined only in order to avoid sanctions, J7 also appeared only for this reason + it makes it possible to work with YuzhMash.
        Either we can’t make a rocket ourselves, or we don’t have enough money, we are worried about possible problems with the certification of “our” Zenith and possible lawsuits by YuzhMash on intellectual property issues. In general, the picture is at least some kind of muddy ...

          The place of permanent basing of the Sea Launch turns out to remain there for a long time, if not forever. It is very unlikely that the S7 would subscribe to such an adventure without state guarantees ...

          Gradually goes out of orbit
          The lower the speed - the closer it is attracted to the Earth

                For the third quarter of 2017, Rosneft's debt increased by 12,1%, or 417 billion rubles, to a new historical record of 3,854 trillion rubles.
                Of this amount - 2,141 trillion rubles, or 55% - falls on short-term liabilities, which need to be repaid over the next year. The company's financial reserves - cash on accounts and financial assets - amount to 576 billion rubles, covering a little more than a quarter of this amount.
                The debt of Rosneft is growing almost non-stop all the time that the company exists. In 2003, Rosneft owed about 100 billion rubles, in 2005 - 560 billion rubles, in 2011 - already 748 billion rubles. In 2014, against the backdrop of the devaluation of the ruble, debt soared to 2,5 trillion rubles, and in 2015, to 3,3 trillion rubles.

                  Gazprom continues to consume cash reserves in bank accounts and increase debt due to falling gas prices in Europe and megaprojects for the construction of pipelines, which the company cannot pay for at the expense of its own revenues.

                  According to the results of the first half of the year, the gas holding received 446 billion rubles of cash flow from operating activities, follows from Gazprom’s IFRS report.

                  Compared to the previous year, the inflow to the company’s accounts doubled, and the amount received was not enough to finance all expenses on capital investments and investments, even though their volume was reduced by 10%, to 746 billion rubles.
                  In order to bridge the cash flow gap, Gazprom was forced to continue burning cash reserves in bank accounts: in the first half of the year they decreased by 116 billion rubles, and by half in a year. As of June 30, the company had 779 billion rubles in cash and cash equivalents.

                  The balance of the required amount - 237 billion rubles - Gazprom received by attracting new loans

                  . The total debt of the company in the second quarter reached 3,005 trillion rubles.


                  Gazprom’s results were worse than expected, said Promsvyazbank analyst Dmitry Monastyrshin. Revenue growth (by 10%) was again shown only on the Russian market: after raising tariffs from the population and business, 466,2 billion rubles were raised

      Boeing and "Energy" reconciled "Union"

      With the Americans paid for the "Sea Launch" on barter

      The Rocket and Space Corporation Energia (RKKE) entered into an agreement with Boeing Corporation on a debt settlement scheme that a Russian company owed to Boeing as a result of the bankruptcy of the Sea Launch consortium. As the General Director of the RKKE Vladimir Solntsev told Izvestia, the partners concluded a barter deal - Boeing received the rights to five seats in Soyuz spacecraft heading to the International Space Station.
      According to Vladimir Solntsev, an agreement was signed with Boeing to acquire two seats, and the American corporation also has an option for three more seats in Soyuz at the end of 2018 and 2019.
      “As part of the settlement of the debt to Boeing, we proposed and the Americans adopted a scheme of joint work in various areas of space activities, including the calculation of the sale of seats in Soyuz spacecraft,” said Vladimir Solntsev. - NASA's contract with Boeing is expected to be concluded within a month. Thus, we must close our debt to Boeing for more than two years. We continue to develop cooperation, and places on the "Unions" are only part of our multifaceted relations.
      The decision that the RKKE should pay Boeing $ 330 million was taken by a California court last fall - the case has been examined for more than three years. The reason for filing a lawsuit was the disagreement between Boeing and Energy regarding obligations remaining as a legacy from the international consortium Sea Launch, which went bankrupt in 2010.
      If we keep in mind the parameters of the last deal between Roscosmos and NASA to acquire seats on Soyuz, then one ticket to the ISS with subsequent return to the Kazakh steppe cost $ 80 million, including a training program. Accordingly, five ISS tickets cost $ 400 million. A deal in this form appears to be profitable for Boeing.
