"Fist-waving after the fight": Experts commented on the announcement of US sanctions against Nord Stream-2

150

The United States plans to impose sanctions on the Nord Stream-2 pipeline by the end of the year, writes the German newspaper Bild.


The publication, citing its sources in the US Senate, reports that the strike will be carried out on European contractors implementing the project. In this case, a rather non-standard scheme will be applied, under which sanctions against EU companies will be included in the US military budget for next year.

It is assumed that a number of companies from Germany and Switzerland will cooperate with Gazprom on the Nord Stream-2 project.

A number of experts call these sanctions brandishing fists after the fight, since by the end of December the construction of the gas pipeline can be completed or completed by more than 95%.

At the same time, Russia is also preparing to give an answer to the United States. Today, on December 2, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will launch the Power of Siberia gas pipeline in an international teleconference.

Blue fuel via the new highway will come from the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia to the border with China. Gazprom is also building the site to a field in the Irkutsk Region, gas from which is expected to go in the 2023 year.

The Power of Siberia gas pipeline has become one of the key elements of the energy “turn to the East,” which was proclaimed after the West introduced its first sanctions against Russia in 2014.

      Yes, let the United States impose sanctions against its main ally in the European Union, because Russian laws and our gas pipe only reach the border of the European Union, and then the legislation is not ours, and the European Union and sanctions do not threaten us ...

        Unfortunately, we are threatened with sanctions ... While we are using dollars. And ALL transactions in this currency MUST go through the USA. Think about it when ANY payment can be delayed or blocked by any "sneeze" of the State Department or a court in the United States.

            "We are not threatened with sanctions" Grefbank lives with this motto. And it is for this reason that there is no Security Council in Crimea.
            It is under this slogan that football in Russia lives. That is why it is impossible to play football in Crimea.

              And we give gas to Europe and immediately we dump billions into the European economy.

              But the trouble is that our rulers do not understand what can be done with rubles.

              And you can buy any crap on the currency !!! except for the one under sanctions.

                        This is not a problem at all - they trade with other countries that trade with Russia, right? Just redistribute cash flows, business then.
                        In extreme cases, you can sell them energy exclusively for gold, as they are for us under Stalin. All industrialization is paid for in gold - all machine tools and mechanical equipment. For nothing else, they did not sell them to us - only exclusively for gold ....

                        In short, in order for the ruble to become popular, Germany needs to catch up with the minimum GDP. The rest then everything itself will be formed. May be.

                        Not a question at all. The ruble is calmly traded on the currency exchange. The payer's bank buys rubles and pays. So we make ruble payments.

                  That only here Oblom (big oblom) - from the Baltic to Spain, Novatek also blocked the terminals with Russian gas. The price of liquefied gas fell to $ 100 per 1000 cubic meters. Two times lower than cost. Therefore, Americans buy Russian gas, and their LNG plants busily inspects the polar fox.

                      Considering Shell's 4 lard arrived in Russia, pasture can be very expensive. And American gas carriers deliver "American gas", or "Norwegian" gas, from Vyborg to Europe. Ours are slowly gaining a fleet and may become monopolists in Europe: liquefied gas - it does not fall under any European protocols.

              And when you advise others to wake up, do you yourself understand that there are limits to everything? Including our patience. Now the US sanctions are more demonstrative. Let’s say they introduced real serious sectoral sanctions and deprived Russian officials and business of the opportunity to earn money. Even so, the country will not bend. Not so much we depend on them. Well, even if it turns out that we are then addicted to another question ... Well, what should keep us in that case from what they think is stupid things like taking Ukraine for the sake of industry and the buffer? And at the same time, their adored Suvlak corridor, Georgia, Poland and the Baltic states, just in case? And from the transfer of the economy to military tracks to prevent a quick financial collapse and a change in military doctrine back to preventive? Their Army? Oh, hardly. With all the nuances - no one can win the war with us. To die together - perhaps if EVERYTHING comes together against us. But to win - no. Our politicians with the children in London, who are now dancing to their tune - so real sanctions from this trash would have cleared us ... And their dreams of a change of power from within are not in this country. Passed already. No more. Whatever bad power was better now than in the 90s, I've seen enough. Yes, and we remember what they wanted to do with us. Somehow, their plans very much resembled those that were built by a well-known Fuhrer. No, really. They will not dare to push us against the wall. They will lose much more than we, and will have to die of starvation or under bombs - we will have time to take everyone with us.

                In Ukraine, too, there is no industry, they finished it off with their "revolution of hydration" and there is nothing to capture there. And even if such a desire appeared, it would be necessary to sharply increase the army at the expense of the reservists, i.e. to give the adult people a weapon. How it ended 100 years ago, the current government remembers, although two years ago it pretended that there was no October. For them it will definitely be stupid.

                You can probably upload it. But what's the point. "In 2012, Gazprom" prepared a feasibility study for investments in the Power of Siberia, and at the end of this document it was said: yes, this project may have commercial significance, but only if the underlying gas price in it is increased by 50-70%. They calculated the gas price in three different ways: it was tied to the oil price at $ 60, $ 75 and $ 90 per barrel. And according to the investment rationale made by Gazprom planners and economists, it turns out that even at the price of the most expensive oil, the project does not pay off even in 2048! This is not a commercial project at all. "" The fact is that the Chayandinskoye field has significant reserves of oil, the so-called "oil rim". And according to all the rules, both technical and economic, we must first develop oil, because if we take gas from there, the pressure will drop, and we will never take oil from there again. According to the rules, this cannot be done. "And regarding the additional pipeline (Power of Siberia-2), the Chinese said (and so far I have not heard about another position) that" they will agree with the project only if they are allowed to produce gas in Russia themselves, build their own route and export its own gas "

                  Well, firstly, if it (the technical development scheme) was non-profit, then the deposit would not be put into development. Neither the GKZ nor the CCR would have missed it with a negative economy.
                  Secondly, Gazprom is developing deposits with free gas, and Gazpromneft with oil rims. The latter are introduced only in the OPE. By virtue of Siberia, free gas flows, and not from gas caps. Condensate and helium are separated at the gas treatment facility.

                    The price of oil in 2012 is $ 110. Therefore, they approved. I believe the expert. I would love to read the refutation or explanation of Gazprom on the Chayandinskoye field, but this is apparently a big secret. They are in a hurry with a political effect, which is why they have mixed up the work order of companies.

                      It is possible that the price of gas for oil at $ 110 was laid down for China in the contract at the level of 350 $ -400 $ per thousand m3, but this does not mean that this price is a certain red line below which the NVP of the project will be negative. Why do you think so?

                      Gas reserves, except oil and condensate (Chayandinskoye and Kovykta) are 4 trillion m3, and under the contract we supply only a quarter - about 1 trillion m3 and get $ 400 billion. The cost of the project (from open sources) is about $ 80 billion. Condensate and oil are left to ourselves.

                        According to Gazprom’s calculations, oil $ 90 will not pay off until 2048. They knew this, but they counted on Chavez’s forecasts for $ 200. I did not say anything about reserves, but just wanted to say that oil under gas is simply buried forever. In a word, mismanagement.

                        The oil rims are now in pilot production. According to its results, it will be seen whether the economics of the project will "pull" their full development, whether it will be profitable or not. If not, oil reserves can simply be written off or postponed until better times. This will not affect the development of deposits with free gas, and, consequently, the Power of Siberia project (on the contrary, if they are written off, the overall economy of the project will skyrocket). Different grid of wells, different ground infrastructure (for its rims, they have not yet been built, since the pilot project is underway).

                        At the expense of mismanagement, then what is it? The hinges themselves are difficult to develop, some, due to their small thickness, are simply economically unprofitable - you will never return the invested money (at low oil prices). But if their development is unprofitable, but together with gas it is profitable, i.e. development of deposits with free gas allows you to reduce costs and recoup investments, they will be developed, so they are now in the OPE.

Thus, Gazprom violates all norms, it leaves huge reserves of oil in the ground. " Regarding mismanagement, thickness and non-profitability, these are reserves of about 61,6 million tons of oil and condensate.

                        It is difficult to comment, the expert said - as he understood, but could have misunderstood.
                        The main problem of the oil rims, not a drop in reservoir pressure, but a breakthrough of gas from a gas cap or water from below (thicknesses are small), respectively, and low oil recovery ratios.
                        these reserves are about 61,6 million tons of oil and condensate.

                        Chayandinskoye - 61.6 million tons (recoverable) of oil and condensate, and Kovykta - 91 million tons of condensate (recoverable).

                  The Chinese masters make statements. And traded like hell. But ... unlike some, the Chinese always know that it is not necessary to cross certain borders. Only Russian companies have the right to extract oil and gas, as well as coal in Russia. An extreme case is jointly foreigners + Russian companies, but this is not too encouraged. Only for some. Therefore, they declare something (why not bargain, suddenly a ride), but in case of serious problems, they and we will not insist. Too much they need a benevolent Russia.

                Russia is not a geopolitical rival to the United States. And she didn't. There was an ideological confrontation with the USSR, but with the collapse of the latter, it ended. Now Russia is just as bourgeois and obedient. All the "recommendations" of the World Bank and the IMF (controlled by the Washington Regional Committee) are being fulfilled with overfulfillment of the plan at times. Boston boys came up with "digitalization", so the Russian "geniuses" (he wanted, of course, to use another word, but banyat) Gref and Medvedev right there on the bill. And the essence of this very "digitalization" is the replacement of the state with some kind of "digital platform" that will keep and sell our personal data (literally everything, including biological data) to the one who pays. Soon and the law on the protection of personal data will be canceled. So far, only Soviet normative acts have been taken up, but these are still flowers. Well, what kind of "opponents" are we to the States ?! Rather, bonded.

            2. Daily calculations both went in US dollars, and go. The Russian authorities occasionally, rather timidly and reluctantly speak of a decrease in the share of the US dollar in international settlements of Russian residents. There are practically no successes here, as it seems to me.
            Everything is measured and paid in US dollars, that is, any international trade in Russia, from China to the EAEU.

            p. 1 and 2 are different things.

            Here you need some kind of coordinated, firm and irreversible solution.
            For example, China and Russia announce that from now on, all payments for goods will be in RMB. Alone (everything in rubles) Russia will not pull.
            But this can lead to an interesting effect. The Americans clap their hands and depreciate the dollar :) in fact, having written off their debts and received a furious impulse for the development of their own industry.

                What has been reduced is not money (dollars), but just regular pieces of paper (derivatives),

          In March 19 - PJSC Gazprom and JSC RusGazDobycha made a decision on the final configuration of the project to create a large complex for the processing of ethane-containing gas and the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the area of ​​Ust-Luga (Leningrad Region). the parties moved to the stage of project implementation.The project provides for the construction of facilities for the annual processing of 45 billion cubic meters of gas, production and shipping of 13 million tons of LNG, up to 4 million tons of ethane and more than 2,2 million tons of liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) ... The commissioning of the first stage of the complex is scheduled for the second half of 2023, the second stage - by the end of 2024. "
          As for grain - in 2018, Russia exported 256 thousand tons of flour, taking 12th place in the world.

    In this case, a rather non-standard scheme will be applied, under which sanctions against EU companies will be included in the US military budget for next year.

    Is that how or what? The wording does not lie on the brain. What is the relationship between EU companies and the US military budget?

    No one will stop the multi-billion-dollar trading project when it is completed by 3/4. Russia will finish it even alone and this process is irreversible. Yes, the operational terms will move forward, but American LNG will not become cheaper. The price of LNG is the main obstacle to its implementation for the Yankees compared to other gas prices. And these Yankees do not control prices, thank the big market.

      So it is, but we are dependent on pipelayers in the offshore section, and these pipelayers are European contractors. In principle, the sanctions plan to hit precisely against them, and therefore, it is advisable to complete the offshore section before the end of the year. In connection with the vagaries of Denmark, at one time it was planned to bypass the disputed section, which increased the time for laying pipes by 15 days. Now Denmark has given the go-ahead and the pipe will go according to plan, that is to say, and these 15 days will shift to minus. Well, if the pipe comes to the German coast, then the pipe layers are no longer afraid of these sanctions. In general, Russia, as the largest gas producer, would not be bad to get its own pipe layer, so as not to depend on anyone's whims.

      Not only the price of gas is an obstacle. To compensate for the falling volume of Russian gas, the United States will have to increase gas production dozens of times. For its transportation, it is necessary to acquire additional gas carriers, and on the coast of Europe to rebuild reception and liquefaction terminals, which are now clearly not enough, which will take about 10 years. By the way, dill is crushing for this period demanding the conclusion of a new gas transit agreement from Russia, not agreeing to its annual extension.

                  TUB Fortuna is a unique vessel for Russia, which showed its capabilities in the construction of the Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok gas pipeline, which worked on the Sakhalin-1 project and on the development of the Arkutun-Dagi field.
                  The ship was created for specific tasks and successfully fulfills them.
                  However, for the construction of the Northern Stream-2 IHL in the Baltic Sea, where depths can exceed 400 m, more serious pipe layers, such as Solitare or the same Pioneering Spirit, are needed.
                  In the event that the United States imposes sanctions against pipe-laying vessels involved in the construction of the IHP Nord Stream-2, this will be a very serious blow for the project

                      This condition is critical for the construction of the MFG Nord Stream-2, since the pipes are laid on average at a depth of 50 m, and the maximum depth exceeds 200 m.
                      The flagship of the Russian pipe-laying fleet - the pipe-laying barge (TUB) Fortuna - can lay pipes to a depth of 200 m, i.e. its capabilities will not be enough for the construction of the IHP Nord Stream-2.

                        09:19, December 10, 2018

                        VIENNA, Dec 10 - RIA Novosti. The Austrian oil and gas concern OMV has already invested 2 million euros in the Nord Stream 531 project and will continue financing in 2019, the head of the concern Rainer Seele told RIA Novosti.
                        “To date, we have transferred 531 million euros for the implementation of the project,” Seele said, specifying that it is a period until the end of the third quarter of 2018.

                        According to him, the amount of funding in 2019 will depend on progress in the implementation of the project.
                        "It depends on how much Nord Stream 2 will request for 2019. We have framework loan agreement, within the framework of which the company Nord Stream 2 can request amounts from us, "he added.

                        The only shareholder of the project operator, Nord Stream 2 AG, is Gazprom
                        ".

                        And where does Gazprom’s Eurobonds ... On July 22, 2016, the Polish antitrust regulator refused to establish a joint venture with Gazprom and European companies and another financial scheme was chosen to circumvent this ban. Nord Stream 2 participants lend to companies, paying certain amounts (as an example, the Austrian In the first quarter of 2019, OMV oil and gas company invested € 2 million in financing the construction of the Nord Stream-44 gas pipeline. This is evidenced by the company's report. For the same period in 2018, the company allocated € 81 million for these purposes). And for the entire time of construction, no one questioned this scheme (Poles - they have their own opinion, but their claims to European companies)

                        This is how they "finance" ... buying Eurobonds (at interest) and issuing loans (also at interest, naturally). Gazprom is building a pipe on them, which it will give to them due to the fact that a year ago the governments of the countries belonging to these creditors of the pipe SUDDENLY decided that SP-2 falls under the 3rd energy package and will pay them for pumping gas through the end of the pipe itself). And naturally it will return the loans issued to them

"Before vote, the (Senate Foreign Policy) committee should consider whether sanctions against our NATO allies, as well as against a neutral third party (Switzerland), are a good anti-Russian strategy "- Senator Rand Paul.

                        And where do you see the "muddy" schemes? Europeans give loans to Gazprom .. what is muddy or illegal in this? Gazprom is not under sanctions like BE. And the fact that Gazprom muddies the Russian information space and does not say that financing is just loans that must be returned is the problem of Gazprom and the gullible public. SP-2 is primarily a political project and no one hides this. And you have to pay for it. there is no move for Gazprom (and the Russian Federation) in this project, even if it is unprofitable. Everyone realizes this and everyone "welds" on this. The Americans are promoting their gas, and the Europeans are removing coupons from both of them - win-win loans and constantly decreasing prices for gas due to a fight between suppliers for the European market

The revenues will be shared with creditors. For without their lobbying opportunities, a pipe cannot be built a priori.

Moreover, in the long term (for a year or two, they sign it) to sign means to take expenses for maintenance and repair of hydraulic structures of a non-friendly state are simply not needed after completion of SP-2.

          If in the long term, there is also our interest in maintaining transit through the Ukrainian GTS, but it all depends on how the card will fit. It is no secret that this gas pipeline was built in the USSR and worked properly for 30 years until it ran into "schiry and Svidomo" who were playing with an American tambourine. If, in the future, adequate politicians come to power in Ukraine (who will give them?), Then the presence of one more route besides the newly created ones, meets our interests, as an earner and supplier, simply for the reason that we are still dependent on the whims of the same Turkey , or Germany, through which the Turkish and Nordic streams will pass. Maybe they will not put sticks in our wheels, or maybe they will drink tea and agree that it is possible to resist transit in order to reduce the price of gas for the transit country, or ... Now, of course, the Power of Siberia has acted as a counterweight, which suggests that the light has not converged like a wedge in the European market, but nevertheless, it is in our interests to drive at least 10-15 billion cubic meters of gas through the Ukrainian pipe to maintain it in working order. Even if Ukraine breaks up into several independent economic entities, each of them will cling to this pipe with its teeth. this is a stable income, and the loss of the monopoly on transit will make them accommodating, as long as gas is pumped through their territory.

    here the reason is simple: the Americans want to sell their gas themselves and recoup the costs of the 404 project. Now, the 404 country is already trying to recover money from Gazprom, having forgotten about its debt of 3 billion dollars. And there the meter drips every day. And what are our Kremlin boats waiting for? It’s time to start the seizure of 404 assets of the country wherever ....

        For the understanding: the French gouged Libya, because they owed 40 billion dollars. Now they are not remembered. We are waiting for the meter to accumulate 40 billion debt?

    The United States plans to impose sanctions on the Nord Stream-2 pipeline by the end of the year, writes the German newspaper Bild.

    Late to drink Borjomi. Today it remains to pass by sea - 93 km.
    Laying speed - 6 km / day. Total: 17-18. December, the pipe is "pulled" to the shore.
    If anything, in the German port there is a Russian pipe-laying barge "Favorit" under the "steam". The laying speed will decrease, but we will hold out the pipe. I have everything under control! negative yes

    Let the United States impose sanctions against its main ally in the World of the European Union,

    Oh, that's not what we're talking about, gentlemen, comrades. Speaking with concern, we must say that Russia, or rather its authorities, is increasing energy trade. Those. raw materials! Without any processing!
    Oil without processing, gas without processing, timber without processing, grain without processing, etc. Rulers do not understand that this is bad? Understand, but do nothing, or do, but not fully. Why?
    Yes, I know that a gas processing plant is being built that goes to China, and the one that goes to Europe, Turkey?
    Personally, I really do not like it. And you?

    You have not heard of the Yamal LNG project for liquefaction of natural gas, it has already been released, the railway is being modernized for it, the project of the northern latitudinal passage, with the construction of a large bridge, comparable in complexity with the Crimean one, which will connect the Northern Sverdlovsk railway. Etc., don't you know that?

    Today:
    “Europe has fallen off gas prices”
    https://lenta.ru/news/2019/12/02/so_sad/
    “In the third quarter, the average price per thousand cubic meters, taking into account excise taxes and customs duties, was $ 169,8. A year ago, over the same period, it exceeded $ 250, meaning a drop in annual terms of 32 percent. ”
    “The reason for this price reduction was the excess supply on the market, which was formed due to liquefied natural gas (LNG). The cost of LNG in Asia has doubled, after which manufacturers began sending gas carriers to Europe. ”
    And now, gentlemen, consider how many decades he will pay off. If the Power of Siberia launched today can pay off (at yesterday's prices) in 10-15 years, then at today's gas prices - in 20-30 years. And according to the laws of Europe it is impossible to own a pipe and gas - Gazprom is obliged to pass 45% of gas from another supplier through the pipe.
    With such a gas price, it’s more profitable to sell on the domestic market today. You look and there will be gasification of the whole country, about which Lenin spoke and dreamed ...
