Military Review

In the United States decided to help Europe to abandon Russian gas

33
Senators Johnson (Republican) and Chris Murphy (Democrat) submitted a bill involving the allocation of $ 1 billion to finance energy projects that will help European countries to overcome their dependence on Russia, reports RIA News.




According to Murphy, most European countries rely on Russian gas, and the allocation of funds will help counter the influence of Moscow.

He also noted that American assistance would not only help the allies find other sources of energy, thereby destroying Russia's control over Europe, but also create new jobs in the United States.

Recall, the supply of fossil fuels around the world today is one of the most important items on the agenda of the executive and legislative authorities of the United States. In the summer, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, after a conversation with Donald Trump, said that Europe could invest in the construction of terminals for receiving liquefied gas from the United States, provided competitive prices.

In turn, Washington, which seeks to press Russia in this market, assured the public that it acts solely for good reason - to diversify the European energy market from preventing Moscow from using its supplies to put pressure on American allies.

The US administration is particularly active in opposing the construction of Nord Stream-2, which will significantly increase the volumes of gas coming from Russia, which, according to the White House, will make the EU dependent on Russian energy resources.

      The United States wants to eliminate a competitor, in this case Europe, and make money on it. It’s a very sound position, they are bending down the vassals, let's see .. Given that throughout the Europe the US military bases, how much Europeans will resist, how long they will last, is not clear .. But Nord Stream 2, I think, will still be put into operation ...

        And how did Europe become a state competitor in the energy issue? She generally basically consumes and does not mine. The competitor is Russia. Europe is a buyer. She can not compete with the seller itself)

          The competitor is not in the energy sector .. If Europe gets to buy expensive gas, it will automatically raise prices for all production in Europe, which will affect the price of the final product, which will be more expensive, which means less competitive. Which is beneficial for the United States, given its current strategy, which aims to return production from China .. At the same time, the United States will also earn on gas ... which, if necessary, will allow subsidizing its production ...

            How to say, the USA is a market. But the market is problematic, in order to get to it, they are trying to pay Europe for everything - for entry, for gas they do not need at such a price, for bases. They are already interested in the market of Iran and Asia. And there is also Russia. So Trump will be played, to complete isolation

              China refused American gas (approximately a loss of 1 billion dollars per month). Now the United States has problems with the development of the industry and with the attraction of investments in it, because The main market for LNG was just in China and Asia (moreover, Comrade Si recently asked to speed up the development of the second Russian branch of Altai, since gas consumption is growing.). Now the United States needs a new market, and, apparently, is ready to subsidize its gas in this way. industry. The United States will take any measures to oust competitors from the European gas market. hi

                Good luck. You just can't cram a product at a high price if there is the same one - but cheaper. There are two options - force pressure (what is bad - I described it for sure, they will simply go to other markets) or subsidies. Figuratively speaking, "and we will cut off the duties on cars for this." The second is also unacceptable, but already for the United States - the fuss with LNG was started so that more money went to the United States and production was in the United States, and then European cars stuck in ...

          The USA works in its own style - they allocate 1 billion for the actual purchase of officials of the EU apparatus, calling it "for energy projects ... and blah blah ..."
          the action is only slightly different from the distribution of cookies on the Maidan and the so-called "lobbying".

          A real step “for all times and peoples” could be, for example, an agreement on state subsidizing of American suppliers of liquefied natural gas in order to ensure its competitive price on the EU market for a period of 50 years.
          the EU would have thought it over, but then it would no longer be business from the side of such a market USA, but the most severe state regulation, abruptly bolshevik in the post-revolutionary period.

            States want to earn real money, and if they still pay their producers 50 years - why should they?

            With the cost of Russian pipeline gas, the United States does not have enough money to sponsor its gas, we can always offer a lower price

            They can do something only by political methods, sooner or later with this approach they will be pierced

              Yes. You are right to subsidize your producers of liquefied gas in the presence of such an intractable “partner” as Russia, it is very difficult and smacks of a crazy woman, and besides, completely knocks the ground out from under Russian (for example) pseudo-market liberalism.
              But liberalism, it has always been pseudo-market, even in Europe, even in Russia.
              And this never prevented the “free European liberal marketers” to subsidize tens of billions of euros of national agricultural producers with might and main. The practice is long-standing and well-established. WTO smokes nervously on the sidelines.

              And here the task is to destroy Russia and appropriate its natural wealth.
              It’s not for Pierre or Hans to allocate 100 thousand euros a year to his 50 cows, without any return and gratitude (they will also leave both on tractors and pile cow manure under liberal windows).

              So, in the eyes of the average bizarre American statesman, for whom the dead Brzezinski and McCain are the bearers of democracy, such a thing is quite suitable.

        The question is not in competition, as I think, but in lobbying for the interests of a certain concern, which, under this bench, can safely master the green lard. I think this is the main motive :)

          The concern is still a separate business unit, but the Brussels bureaucracy + part of the European deputies + nursing firms are a crowd of people who will undoubtedly work out financing for 10-50-100 thousand dollars for an individual person or a small consulting company. - they can create a lot more money and stinks (that is, the necessary public opinion) than a certain concern, and it’s easier to hide your ears (both for an elephant and a donkey) wink
          it is necessary to have a lot of "independent" opinions expressed from different sides, but in the same dudu.
          so you’ll get a yard, and then what will happen to Europe, you don’t need to think because you are well now.
          everything is done on this pattern, take a look around, at least for the country 404, at least for Georgia, etc. only the scale of financing is different.

        but I don’t quite understand how the presence of US bases in Europe affects the adoption by Europeans of certain decisions? well, mattresses will not actually withdraw their troops into the streets of European cities. or what other methods are there!?

    Most importantly, he did not say a word (if they are given in full) about the benefits of this very old Geyropa!
    Yes, in principle, the star-gains of Geyropa are up to the bulb, most importantly, new jobs in the states themselves.
    I am glad that some adequate politicians of the old world understand this.

    What are the competitors of the States. There, only 2 years ago, the law was adopted "Liquefy and pay", is it not enough? Will be purchased in Yamal

    It's a common thing. Organized according to the rules of the Russian-German customs war of the late 19th century. It's still cheaper here, it's not in our interests to put pressure, on the contrary, not very good relations with the European Union play into our hands, there is no reason to beg for preferences from us. But with the counter pressure on us from the Europeans, we need to think about it, otherwise it’s more about dependence on us. We must comprehensively and not yell like a bad cock that gas and oil dependence will ruin us. It will not ruin if wisely. 35% of our legal (from logistics, from price, from delivery possibilities) volumes. We don't need any more, although SP-2 will "release" at least 30 billion cubic meters of "pumping" in Ukraine. It’s clear that at our prices the Europeans will try to increase exactly this volume of supply. This is no less than 5% of the total GDP of the European Union in the cost of production. Who will refuse? However, we will receive preferences for this, first of all, political and technological shish, as if you do not get up on the bridge. But let them ... Let them try. In five years, we will have to really intervene in their policy in order to preserve this European Union. It is beneficial to us as a whole, whatever one may say. Therefore, measure seven times and only then by the scissors ... And the USA? Dogs bark - the caravan is coming.

    Not so expensive Americans rated European energy security! As I understand it, for one billion dollars, the EU must provide itself with everything, but not gas from Russia.

    What do you mean ?????? A BILLION !!!! For Europe !!! This will surely save her from the Russian "wrong" gas from the pipe. Now they will be able to use this money to build ONE ANOTHER terminal for receiving American LNG, similar to that in Poland (the project cost $ 850 million). It does not matter, of course, that in order to compensate for the capacity of the SP-2, at least 10 more such terminals are needed. And it really doesn't matter that American LNG is at least 1,5 times more expensive than Russian pipe LNG (and this is without taking into account its regasification). The main thing is "energy independence" from Russia !!! Although, judging by the latest US gestures in the field of "free trade", one can still argue about who is the more reliable supplier of energy resources.

    They want to follow the same model when the economy of the Union is destroyed. If Russia is deprived of the opportunity to sell oil and gas .... then the whole lid ... But in Europe, too, are not fools, they perfectly understand the price that they will have to pay in case of refusal of Russian energy resources.

    Let's estimate. Energy resources tell us. Let them order a couple of floating nuclear power plants from us and glow and drown. Not a channel? And why?
    Gas - the raw material for the production of what? Plastic, your manganese anhydride! And why the United States does not mold granulate themselves, but want to carry LNG?
    Everything seems to be simple: he mixed his gas into plastic and dragged by dry cargo ships to Europe.

    It is very good that Europe is building terminals for receiving gas tankers, Russia has already laid down and setting up its shipyards for in-line construction of gas carriers.
