US Department of State intends to "destroy" the Nord Stream-2 "

71
The American press publishes materials announcing US measures to counteract the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project. Edition Washington examiner referring to sources in the US Department of State, writes that representatives of the US Foreign Office are busy working to find ways to completely block the construction of the pipeline.


US Department of State intends to "destroy" the Nord Stream-2 "


RIA News publishes a statement by Assistant Secretary of State Aaron Mitchell, made during a report to representatives of the Subcommittee on Foreign Relations of the US Senate:
Since the Nord Stream-2 will pass through the waters of Denmark, this can be a significant political and legal stumbling block that can severely slow down the construction of the gas pipeline. If we take into account that the new gas pipeline will supply 75% of the gas supplied to Europe, then it can be stated that this does not meet the interests of Europe and the USA.


Recall that the deputies of the Danish Parliament have already made a decision on the approval of the draft law, which allows banning the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

In other words, the United States no longer hide the fact that, in order to realize their own economic interests, they are ready to exert obvious pressure on the authorities of other countries, including the EU countries.

The ultimate goal of the United States, as is known, is to force Europeans to buy their LNG, which will definitely strike at the European budget, since this type of energy will cost European consumers much more expensive than pipe gas from Russia.

        Comrades, as one of the SP-2 builders I am reporting: Active preparations are underway for construction, in a month VZHG (shift camp) of builders for 1100 people will be ready, the construction of the industrial zone of warehouses and the road to them are going on at the site of the future CS Slavyanskaya forest is cut down and uprooted, a pipe has been prepared for the linear section that will connect the Slavyanskaya compressor station and the main gas pipeline. We, as workers, are not given any deadlines, but the OBS claims that the active phase of construction begins in February and March. Will live. wink

          The United States, in addition to "nothing more, only business," still encourages us not to lose in Europe, as in Syria.

          So they will crush.

          Negative - lose credibility in Europe, as well as in BV

          So they will press harder.

          Europe does not inspire confidence. They are malleable, soft, like G. But, except that the Germans (and Austrians) are trying to resist

            I’ll tell you a secret, I also built it, not only didn’t complete it, but only half of the capacities from those that were planned were built. Its capacities were not lost in vain, they were transferred to the Turkish Stream, if you take an interest in it, you will find out that the marine section to Turkey is almost half built. And in the first half of this year during the reconstruction, the SP-1 throughput capacity (Portovaya compressor station) was increased and there was a chance to work there. With a silent glanders, transit capacities are increasing all the time, so no alternatives to SP-2 for Europe are expected in the near future, and they know this.

                If you are technically strong, try at least for yourself to calculate the volume of exports from this field at an affordable price in the amount of at least 65 billion cubic meters, which the Turkish Stream can provide in the future, believe, investors, there are few smile The cost price will not be competitive by 30%, EU businessmen will not invest in such projects, especially since the war in Syria was started in vain, these are links of one chain. The Turks will do everything to ensure that gas exports to southern Europe are closed to them, they have leverage on Cyprus, especially since they are in control with the Greeks ... my grandmother also said for two .... doubtful .... very doubtful, that Israel will hold its branch ... rub for a hundred ...

        The fact that the SP-2 does not correspond to the interests of the United States and the hedgehog is understandable, but since when have Americans begun to worry about the interests of Europe? The US wants to cut loot for its LNG, and for European interests they "spit drool."

      Well, why .... not at all funny. Among the “methods of counteraction” a very effective one has already been found, namely: monetary compensation to Europeans for the increased cost of American LNG. The main thing for them is to hook Europeans on LNG, create infrastructure in Europe for LNG, oust Gazprom from the market, and then remove all “compensations”.

    Explosion at a hub in Austria, a direct indicator. Ukrokhokhly scratch turnips, how did traffic fall by 25%. So clever gay-parliamentarians - In any case, an alternative stream is needed. And at a price, there are NO competitors in Russia.
    You never know where else it shies.

    If the LNG were able to be paired with the Saudis, then there is a solution here, and it is clearly to the detriment of the interests of the USA!

    it can be stated that this is not in the interests of Europe and the United States.

    Typically Amer’s thinking. Since it is not in the interests of the United States, then Europe is for the company. Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. Mitchell simply forgot to add Russia to the heap. I just doubt that Europeans have forgotten how to count money. Tse Europe and the Baltic states to the Europeans do not rank.

    As Nord Stream-2 passes through the waters of Denmark, this could become a significant political and legal stumbling block that could significantly slow down the construction of the gas pipeline.


    And maybe it won’t pass, because there are disputed territories between Denmark and Sweden, on which it can be laid. Of course it will be more expensive, but the way out. It is strange that in the USA they do not know about this loophole. But to impose sanctions on a company whose ships lay it - wow, that would be bad.

    “Denmark’s mining industry is concentrated around the Danish shelf of the North Sea. Most of its energy is used domestically. The ratio of oil and gas to domestic consumption is 135%. Denmark is the third oil producer in Western Europe after Norway and the UK. Gas and oil the beginning of the 90s ensured the formation of a positive balance of payments in Denmark. "... this is a description of the Danish economy found on the Internet ... it follows that there can be no discussion and discussion about any politics and ecology ... business and neither more than that.

    The fact that the SP-2 does not correspond to the interests of the United States and the hedgehog is understandable, but since when have Americans begun to worry about the interests of Europe? The US wants to cut loot for its LNG, and for European interests they "spit drool."


    Well then, this is a direct violation of the principles of the WTO that the Americans created, and where we entered, it is not clear why, and all the principles of which the Americans are the first to violate, ranging from sanctions to direct wrecking.

    Turks will do

    I have a very big question about this. I do not trust them. They can throw such a number that mom do not worry.

    Quote: Rostovchanin
    there are few investors for such a dubious undertaking

    So already two have found America and Israel. America recognized Jerusalem and Israel. New butch on BV. No wonder all this is done.

    as for money, you can rest assured of the Turks, but as for the America + Israel bunch ... there is even more doubt about why America needs to compete with the export of their LNG, even Israel’s closest ally ...

    You must understand that by recognizing Jerusalem, America has thrown up the Middle East hive even more, well, what a normal businessman will invest in a project of a country that is on the brink of war, when there is stable Russia, the hegemony of the United States in BV has gone into oblivion after the war in Syria ... this it is obvious

    Of course you are right. Shiftless and people think right. But you show me a European government that can think. This is the whole problem. and correctly wrote a colleague Chertt koment below. I will only add to the comment. Not only among the Germans, but throughout Europe. And these can do anything.

    So we have come to a final point, in the German government there is a lobby for SP-2 of the rest of the countries, this does not concern ... nothing more to discuss wink

    It is difficult to obstruct after a gas pipeline accident in Austria. After this accident, sound Europe will be interested not only in Nord Stream-2, but also in South Stream.
