Berlin warns of US sanctions against SP-2

24
Possible American sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline are dangerous, first of all, for German business, Wolfgang Büchele, chairman of the Eastern Committee of the German Economy, said in an interview with Deutsche Presse Agentur (DPA), Die Welt reports.

Berlin warns of US sanctions against SP-2




According to Buchele, US sanctions projects against the Russian gas pipeline will harm enterprises from Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland, which will ultimately lead to a split between Brussels and Washington.

American sanctions will harm European companies in the first place. They will also turn European energy policy into a United States toy

- he said.

Buchele noted that Europe should not refuse either Russian gas or American LNG, but use all the options "to solve the problems that we faced due to climate change and Germany’s planned rejection of coal and nuclear energy." At the same time, he emphasized that European energy issues should be addressed in Europe, and not in the United States.

He recalled that, thanks to Berlin, another round of negotiations between the European Union, Russia and Ukraine on a new gas transit agreement is scheduled for September, and US intervention can only complicate everything.

Earlier it was reported that the US Congress approved the imposition of sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, affecting primarily operators from Switzerland and Italy, which own vessels operating underwater laying of the gas pipeline.

    Someday, Americans with these sanctions themselves can step on such a good rake with an oak stalk.

      Shhh! Do not be scared!
      The more sanctions Washington imposes on companies and countries, the sooner it will reach a critical level when these sanctions begin to hit the United States itself.
      So: more sanctions, good and different, and against as many companies as possible ...

        The European Union, albeit with the appearance of a ridiculous child, will bring SP-2 to its completion. There is nothing to say about Russia. Germany is not your puppet - Bulgaria with its South Stream. A lot of money has been driven in, and capitalists know how to count money. All bridges have already been burned and North Stream to be. drinks

          So the "brothers" after a change of leadership suddenly regained their sight and came to Moscow to ask for a "gas pacifier". Now they will be pulling a branch from Turetchina.
          Here you have the puppet, and as for the profit, so tobacco apart!

          We're for it" drinks Well, just something like a lot of verbal optimism at our Gazprom, that they will agree with Denmark on SP-2, the conversations have been going on for a long time, but things are still there! What will we do with Denmark if it does not agree to lay pipes in its economic zone? The legal aspect is not entirely clear: It cannot forbid, but you cannot build without her consent, -Casus belli? recourse

              Found, apparently you offer this solution? This map is not visible, it seems that the Swedish economic zone begins there? We will wait for a solution from Europe ... time works for us (Gazprom)

    So let the Germans load their coal into American gas carriers in bulk, and sell it to his USA! Do not drive them to these gas carriers with a blast! !!

      Why coal, they will ship our LNG from Yamal and take it to ourselves (in my opinion, the United States has already bought 4 of our gas carriers). This is because our LNG gas brought to the United States is cheaper than their local shale. American capitalists, they know how to count their money.

    The USA is exactly what they are achieving, here it’s already a no brainer ..
    Germany wake up, otherwise it will be too late .. Old Merkel is already shaking because of how much misfortune she brought to the Germans ..

      I am wildly surprised that the old woman Mackerel has not yet been checked for poisoning by a "novice" and have not been accused of this, such a violation of traditions is somehow frightening. And then there is video evidence, the Darkest One gave her flowers, but it it was that year well, it doesn't matter, the gas was delayed wassat drinks

    Germany must rapidly build LNG receiving terminals. Allegedly for the United States, so as not to stink. But Russia will fill them, we have enough gas. But whether the US will supply gas is a big question. Firstly, when the USA lays, they themselves buy gas from Russia. And secondly, the tank is not a pipe, it can always be deployed to the consumer who pays more.

    Yes, everything is fine. I feel not only Siemens, but also other firms will catch up to locate the full production cycle in Russia.

      Yes, as long as there is gas in Russia, you can play in the "green" environmentalists. Eventually they will come to the French version. Uranium is enough for a thousand years, they say. Unlike oil and gas. And from wind turbines, solar and tidal only to charge a smartphone and household items such as bulbs, a computer and a refrigerator. Real production, on the other hand, consumes electricity like a pig's slop.

        Your knowledge of renewable energy is somewhat outdated. Google the list of the most powerful SES in the world, it is very informative. For example, the completed SES in the Emirates will have a capacity of 5 GW, and this, for a minute, is slightly larger than all six power units of the notorious Fukushima1.

          According to preliminary estimates, 3,2 million Noor Abu Dhabi panels will provide electricity to 90 thousand people,


          Now imagine not a desert under an eternal cloudless sky, but 82 million Germans. And not only for an air conditioner, a microwave oven and a refrigerator with a washing machine, but also for factories with thermocouples, electroplating, machine tools, electric furnaces, etc. How much area should be allocated for this? Country-bank, country-office, country-resort or brothel is good. And let the "dirty" countries produce solar panels and batteries, and all industrial goods?
          Yes, the Germans and so on a year for 2 billion euros buy electricity abroad. And in this situation, to compete with China in mechanical engineering? What will the Germans themselves produce? Euro-whore? So ugly ...

            How much space should be allocated for this?

            The area of ​​SES in the Emirates is 214 sq. km, the area of ​​the Fukushima exclusion zone, after 8 years and raising sanitary standards for radiation ten times, almost twice as much, I don’t even want to talk about Chernobyl.
            Now about Germany and coal, the only energy carrier that it can produce on its territory:
            "According to a new report from the European Commission's Joint Research Center, which is cited by Clean Technica, coal can be painlessly replaced with solar throughout Europe, including the 'heavy' countries of Eastern Europe. Researchers have studied the potential of this type of energy in 42 regions of the 12 EU countries that are still producing coal.
            Calculations have shown that solar installations with a total volume of 730,3 GW can be placed in the selected territories. Of these, 580,1 GW will be located on 3% of vacant land, 62,2 GW will be occupied by degraded lands of former coal mines, and another 80 GW will appear on the roofs of buildings.
            The total output of these plants will reach 874,3 TWh per year, which is more than the coal-fired power plants are producing now. "
            And where, in your opinion, is Germany now taking other energy sources for its TPPs? Oddly enough, he still buys. But does it really matter what to buy: gas in the Russian Federation or electricity in Libya, or the same gas in the Emirates, obtained according to the scheme: electricity + water = hydrogen, hydrogen + CO2 = methane, the same one in the pipeline;) Considering that electricity from SES is now cheaper than hydrocarbon, and you can sell quotas for binding CO2, it will turn out to be quite cost-effective.
            Here is another example of industrial use of renewable energy:
            "The Indian Railways company plans to receive 25% of all electricity from renewable sources by 2025. For this, 5000 MW of solar panels will be installed at stations across the country," Quartz writes.
            The Guwahati railway station in the state capital of Assam is now fully solar-powered. This station is located on the largest transport artery in the north-eastern region of India and serves about 20 passengers daily.
            Solar panels with a capacity of 700 kW were placed on the roof of the station building. This is enough to fully provide the station itself, the motor depot and houses near the railway with electricity. On electricity bills alone, the Railroad Department will now save nearly $ 100 a year. "
            And as a "cherry":
            "A group of researchers from universities around the world published an article in the journal Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, in which they proved that existing technological solutions already allow mankind to completely eliminate fossil fuels, writes Science Daily. Windless and rainy weather will not hurt."
