Why did they sell Gazprom

Why did they sell Gazprom

America of Russia ... will buy a ship?



The Russian gas concern sold the shares, it seems, not only in order to make peace with Ukraine and quietly complete the construction of Nord Stream 2. The company seems to have invited a strategic investor.

At the finish of 2019, oil and gas industry experts actively discussed primarily the payment by the Russian gas giant of the by no means indisputable debt to Ukraine, as well as new sanctions against Nord Stream 2. At the same time, the sale of a large stake in Gazprom for some reason remained outside the brackets.


The general public did not even notice it, although this operation was, in fact, the largest privatization deal in recent years. Few of the experts came up with the idea of ​​linking everything that happened into a single chain. Profile publications simply drowned in detail.

But at the same time, some advanced experts, for example, the long-term head of the analytical division of Otkritie Bank Alexander Razuvaev, decided to draw not only some real conclusions, forecasts, but also extraordinary assumptions.

Now that there is no question of a categorical rejection of privatization, in one form or another, Razuvaev considers even a scenario for the sale of a gas package to Americans possible. Moreover, the package is so large that it will make any further obstacles to the same "Nord Stream 2" simply impossible.

Apparently, it is precisely one of the large American companies that the expert considers as a worthy replacement for the Swiss company Allseas, which, as you know, is forced to stop pipe laying work for SP-2.

The reason for this decision was the new US sanctions, which impose an arrest on the accounts of Gazprom's partner companies involved in the creation of the pipeline. Meanwhile, when only 2 km of pipe remained to be completed at Nord Stream 150, it suddenly became clear that Russia, the largest gas producing country, did not have a single pipe-laying vessel capable of quickly completing construction.


Which ships will continue to lay the pipes of Nord Stream 2 is not yet clear

The idea of ​​building new ships on their own does not hold water, as it will take years to realize for which the SP-2 can simply be scrapped. A direct purchase of ships of this type in the face of acute shortages in the world market could cost Gazprom an exorbitant price.

Is it any wonder that now a radical, although seemingly absolutely unpatriotic, way to get out of sanctions once and for all is being proposed. After all, the way quiet privatization has gone the other day testifies: today you can really sell anything.

And to panic, to sound the bells about the sale of the public domain and the threat to national security hardly makes any sense. In no case should we forget that the Russian gas giant is not building the Nord Stream 2 alone and cooperating not only with Germany, but with a whole consortium of leading multinational corporations.

This consortium includes German companies Wintershall and Uniper, Austrian OMV, French Engie and the Anglo-Dutch oil and gas giant Shell. None of the consortium members ever concealed their desire for closer cooperation with Gazprom, up to mutual entry into capital.

Structural maneuver


So, the participants in the consortium for the construction of SP-2 never hid their readiness to enter the capital of Gazprom. However, this was invariably prevented by concerns that the state would lose control of the concern. Currently, it owns a controlling stake in Gazprom mainly through the Federal Property Management Agency (more than 38% of the shares) and Rosneftegaz (10,74%).

At the same time, a significant share of the company's shares was transferred to the position of the so-called treasury and quasi-treasury. It is customary to call shares that are in the hands of the issuer itself, as well as under the control of subsidiaries with the possibility of free sale, but at the same time with the loss of voting rights.


This is the main similarity of such securities to preferred shares, which also do not vote, but which guarantee the receipt of dividends. Shortly before paying off its debts with Ukraine, Gazprom quietly did what it was not allowed to do for many years: sold a large block of its shares. More precisely, not their own, but quasi-treasury.

The size of the package was 6,52 percent, and it was implemented in two stages to a certain consortium of investors. The composition of the consortium is not disclosed, but it is known that, in addition to the Russian government, it included a number of independent pension funds.

Experts do not hide doubts that the government has replenished its controlling stake with at least a significant number of non-voting shares. There was simply no direct need for such a transfer of property from one pocket to another.

It was much more important to create competition and stimulate the purchase of outside investors, among which, according to foreign observers, oligarchic structures were probably present. In what form, not so important, more important, that someone finally got a pass to the club of the elite - co-owners of Gazprom.

However, no one can say who exactly it was decided to allow among the co-owners of the gas giant. Apparently, there is no reason to expect that the secret will become apparent in the foreseeable future.


Gazprom’s shares are now, after the July jump in quotes (see chart), are considered highly underestimated due to debt problems, delays in the construction of both flows and US sanctions. Only after the completion of infrastructure projects, including SP-2, will cash flows be directed to dividends.

And only then, according to Alexander Razuvaev, the Russian gas giant will be able to "turn from a calf into a cash cow of the budget." Some underestimation of gas securities can be judged by the proceeds from the last transaction, which amounted to about 327 billion rubles.

It is known that in July, announcing a 139,1-fold increase in dividends, which led to a jump in quotations, the company received only 2,93 billion rubles. from the sale of only 3,59% of the shares. In November, when summer excitement was already forgotten, revenue from the sale of 188% amounted to only XNUMX billion rubles.

By the way, in both cases, non-voting quasi-treasury shares also went on sale, but it is not yet clear whether they will become voting as a result of the transfer to the hands of new owners. It turns out that both of these transactions, essentially privatization, were also carried out at a substantial discount to the market price of Gazprom shares.

So, in July, the discount to the value of securities at the close of trading amounted to 5,4% on the eve of the announcement of the transaction, in November - 11%. Now underestimation of quotes can reach up to 15%. Because of this, the sale of a large block of shares may not seem like the right market decision.

However, the set of problems that she helped solve refutes this negative assessment. The transfer of a 6,52% stake in Gazprom became the largest transaction with the company's securities for its entire history. Gazprombank acted as the organizer of the sale of securities, and the order book was formed on the Moscow Exchange.

Let's start from the beginning, let's start from scratch


It is characteristic that it did not occur to anyone to call the deal with Gazprom shares “the sale of the Motherland”. But in Ukraine, the payment of Russian gas debt, as one would expect, was immediately called “overpower”, although to someone the whole combination seemed to be “stolen”, that is, betrayal.


But the first consequence of this decision was the agreement of the two countries that mutual claims on the gas issue are nullified. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak called the $ 2,9 billion paid “a drop in the bucket” compared to the risks that were avoided. He noted that the “nullification” also provides for the removal of the seizure of property at the expense of decisions taken in legal claims.

Gazprom does not need protracted litigation with Ukraine, if only because it threatens the lion's share of export contracts oriented to Europe. They were a serious obstacle to the implementation of both ambitious transit projects - Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream.

At the same time, Ukraine is now hardly worth worrying about both the supply of Russian gas to the country and the loss of the advantages of the main transit country. Incidentally, the latter is also evidenced by the fact that Gazprom did not plan to make any changes to the current transit agreement with the Ukrainian Naftogaz.

And note this, just like that, even taking into account the prospects that open up for the concern with the commissioning of the “Turkish” and “Northern” streams. It remains to be recalled that Gazprom’s shares were never seen as suitable for mass privatization or conducting so-called public IPOs, share offerings.

Apparently, the idea in itself to attract the masses to the management of the concern, albeit in a very indirect form, really scares someone. It’s better to invite another oligarch.

    It's just some shame. Schwonder is more relevant than ever.
    Really, it was impossible to calculate the risks in advance when there were sanctions and the active opposition of the “partners"? Here you cross the road at the crosswalk ten times, and these ... Shameful ..

            And the time and reason for pre-privatization was chosen as if by notes.

                The guys above and below write intelligently and correctly. Yes, robbery in its purest form.
                And with SP-2, everything was obvious from the very beginning. Therefore, we prepare pockets and nevermind in them.

                  Do not have time. As soon as they sell out, they will be caught immediately, convicted of indulging terrorism, robbed of all money and kicked out. And then they will run away, shoot down gangs, rob those who are weaker, etc.

                The dollar will not collapse in the same way as capitalism, since the first is more than 300 years old, and the second is ten thousand years old - human greed will disappear only when humanity disappears.

        3) Now they have sold the shares of GAZPROM, to “partners” from the USA, in order to complete the pipe and get out of the sanctions ..
        Maybe just join the US new state? And the end of sanctions! Honestly, the shame before the New Year was enough on the topic of LNG2, Stockholm, Usrain and Gazprom as a whole.
        4) Now for another 5 years, "download, or pay" through usrain gas in the amount of 40 lard m3. With such volumes, neither LNG2 nor Turkish Stream is needed! This must be understood.
        5) I am already silent about the Donbass in the blood for 6 years.
        They took Crimea right away, and everything else had to be cut down, the Nazis on pillars and now everyone would have forgotten about the sanctions.

          Russia is a small and poor country in the third world. Not even a regional power.
          Yes, the powers that be will kick and infringe on her. This is a common practice of relationships in the world. You just need to know your place in it. And do not puff out your cheeks when your ass in torn pants.

            Russia is a great power. The richest and most beautiful country in the world. This has been envied at all times. Relationship practice (here you are right) is always imposed by the strongest, but at the moment the protégés of the West are in power. They have no idea, no goal but money, and this is the road to nowhere. The collapse of education, culture, sports, moral values ​​(example: one of the governors) cannot last forever - the edge of patience will come. And then they will need to run. Long away. Forever. Someone will have enough of the loot until the end of the day, and most will die in poverty in a foreign land. History does not teach such.

              Now in the Russian Federation something similar to the beginning of the 20s in the USSR. Therefore, the pendulum can swing in any direction. Maybe forward (I would like), or maybe, as in 1927, back. And then you will remember the Russian Federation with tears of tenderness and gratitude. But it will be too late. Work 12 hours a day without holidays and weekends for a poor ration of bread and a place on the bunks. Everything, as with the "happy Stalinist USSR".
              You just do not understand the REAL place of the Russian Federation in the modern world. And you do not understand the role of the USSR in that world. In all cases, you are using the wrong source data. Therefore, you cannot get the right conclusions.

    Rosneft Sechina and Neftegazholding Khudainatova are preparing a deal to sell Asian investors a large stake in oil fields in northern Eastern Siberia. Up to 40% is offered to potential buyers from China and India in a gigantic project that will unite four fields in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
    Total reserves are estimated at almost a billion tons, or 8,6% of all profitable reserves in the Russian Federation, according to Rosnedr. Discovered in the 1990s, these deposits were mothballed for almost two decades and were only included in production in the 2010s.
    Buyers insist on reducing the tax burden, citing the fact that the fields are located beyond the Arctic Circle - the total amount of requested benefits can reach 2,6 trillion. rub. for 30 years. This is more than $ 40 billion at the current exchange rate.
    Rosneft's proceeds from the sale of shares to foreigners are estimated at between $ 3 and $ 7 billion, the entire project as a whole - at $ 15 billion.
    In essence, the Russian budget pays for the deal, i.e. we are with you. I think that the managers will not remain in the loser. request

      It is worth adding that these are almost the last of the large oil fields explored by Soviet geologists.
      Development began only in the 10s. The so-called "Asian investors" are famous - China and India. This is despite the fact that China is almost bursting with oil and gas reserves, procured for the future, even in Australia! The vaults are full!
      This is an example of prudent management of the national economy. And we are entering the 20th year with a budget surplus of 1 trillion rubles! That is, the money was allocated for the so-called national projects of Putin, but not mastered, but sent to the National Welfare Fund, where they are pickled, smoked, salted - choose according to taste.
      Sometimes it seems to me that there really are no national projects - so, a rattle for the people, so that he, stupid, thinks that we are straining, moving somewhere. What are implemented nat. projects? In demography? Medicine? Education? Maybe scary to say, science? And it’s even worse to say - in your own powerful mechanical engineering?
      I do not see point blank!
      And with a quiet glanders, Putin’s vertical corroded right through the spiral and was thrown into the landfill by Medvedev because of social failure. And in exchange began the feast of capitalist sharks in the muddy water of timelessness and anarchy.
      Did not notice?
      Putin persuaded, persuaded the oligarchs to invest in Russia, but did not persuade. And when we, by our stupidity, re-elected him, the scout and businessman, as president again, no one - that's for sure! - I did not notice a flickering and quickly disappearing message that Putin had long persuaded Medvedev to take up the premiership again. I noticed! But then I did not understand what this means. Understanding came only now: Medvedev, sensing Putin's weakness, was bargaining on behalf of the oligarchs! Putin threw off national projects that were not viable under the current conditions on Medvedev, Medvedev - on deputy prime ministers, and they began to shift them to each other, and there are no more national projects if they were at least nominally listed initially - they got bogged down in the bureaucracy, dissolved, no forget them. Provided that they were at all.
      So, the sale of the country is the only real national project, but this is not a project of our people, but a handful of someone else's big bourgeoisie, headed by the prime minister and the president hiding behind his back.

    A year has passed after the pension reform, and what successes "we" have achieved:
    Compared to last year, the number of dollar millionaires and billionaires has risen sharply in Russia. There were 2018 thousand millionaires in mid-172, today it has become almost 1,5 times more - 246 thousand. The population of a whole city the size of Taganrog. The number of dollar billionaires has increased in the same proportion - and also almost 1,5 times, from 74 to 110.
    These are the data from the Global Wealth Report, which is prepared annually by the Swiss bank Credit Suisse.

      What kind of national property are you talking about - it was never public, it always belonged to the state and it was always controlled by those who stood and are in power of this very state, if you once built and created all production facilities this does not mean that they belong to you - since you got paid for the work. Now it is stated in the constitution that natural resources can be in state, private or other ownership of statehood, the process of selling state property to private hands does not affect it at all. Your nitpicking about the E-Mobile project - so just write something? And what does the growth of dollar millionaires have to do with the pension reform that you fastened to them?

    Gazprom is driven by a gang. What the heck was it to build this northern stream, if everyone knew that the Americans would interfere with it and would not allow it to be built. They would leave Europe without gas and let them sit on American or someone else’s for a couple of years. They would know what saving is. And how the price for the population would rise. Then they themselves would have laid this pipeline at their own expense. A licking policy will not lead to anything good. It would be better if they sold Miller, along with his gang. This shobla trades open in the Motherland and he gets away with it.

      And you ask, why did you start the construction of the South Stream (the land part on the territory of Russia) without the final decision of Bulgaria for the construction? Although it was already known that the EU was against.

        and not everything is so sweet with Turetsky.
        Turkey reduces gas supplies from Russia: in the 17th year, the volume of deliveries of Russian gas amounted to 29 billion cubic meters, in the 18th year they fell to 24 billion cubic meters, in the first quarter of 2019 they halved compared to the same period last year - from 6 to 3 billion cubic meters.
        In January-June 2018, Russia's share in gas imports from Turkey amounted to 48%, and in January-June 2019 it fell to 34%.
        Replaced by Russian LNG gas and Iranian gas. LNG imports to Turkey hit historic highs of a record 7,14 billion cubic meters (bcm) in the first half of 2019, according to the Turkish Energy Market Regulatory Department (EMRA). According to Anadolu, based on official EMRA data, the share of LNG in natural gas imports for the first time exceeded 30% in January-June, out of the total natural gas imports of 23,29 billion cubic meters in the country.
        In the 18th year, Iran supplied almost 8 billion cubic meters to Turkey; in 2019, a request from Turkey was announced to significantly increase supplies. Also, Turkey almost completely selects gas coming from Azerbaijan, we are talking about the launch of the Trans-Anatolian pipeline pipeline system.
        Turkey’s policy towards Russia is based on an extremely tough formula - reducing Russia's presence in the Turkish market (they call the control value a third of the Turkish market, which the Turks intend to leave to Gazprom).
        Turkey is blackmailing Putin with its demands to lower the price of gas supplied, and so far Gazprom has not made any progress, since the profitability of the entire Turkish Stream project has long gone into the negative zone, and a further reduction in the price will finally turn it into a loss-making measure.
        Gazprom has invested tremendous funds and resources for the construction of bypass routes in order to maintain and increase its market share in Europe, but now the conditions are under which it will be extremely difficult to even keep volumes. In the first quarter of 2019, for the first time in history, Russia lost competition in the Turkish liquefied natural gas market from the United States, Qatar, Algeria and other countries, which means that the gigantic sums thrown into the construction of a brand-new infrastructure will simply never pay off. At the same time, the infrastructure itself will be built, which means Europe will remain with it even in the event of a significant reduction in Gazprom’s share. Almost free.

    What does the general public haven’t noticed?
    In my face, I noticed. And it was about selling something like a 31% state stake. And that speech was even before any “sudden” sanctions. At other forums, in particular, at Vzglyad, people commented on the coming precisely as a sale of the Motherland, and then everything really died out - money loves silence.
    But since the topic completely went to the bottom due to the soon roar of sanctions - sudden, it was not clear why they took it (stood, watched how it was being built, and then, when there was a bit left, they took and imposed sanctions - brakes? Giraffes ? - which is unlikely), then I, for example, suggested that the sale has been postponed. And there was no doubt that it will be: a plan for privatizing everything and everything exists! No one has canceled it. And I won’t be surprised if they are sold to the Americans. In 2004, Putin was able to soften the law on production sharing. This caused the West’s bitterness, but if Putin had acted differently, a popular storm would have demolished it, and Russia would finally get out of Western control. There they understood it, they did not begin to squeeze Putin, and now the rollback towards the sale is taking place so that the "heroic" head of state does not lose face in the eyes of "his" reckless population. And it seems that the States are helping him with their sanctions. Circus, and only! In my evil opinion, it all looks like an agreement between Putin and Trump. “If only there was no war” ... It’s not us, the population, they said and say so, it’s the neurolinguistic programming of the population by the authorities, but simply intimidation.

      Then we observe the following.
      There were Gazprom’s construction daughters - well, there, to lay pipes, to repair them if necessary. Daughters are respectable:
      Lengazspetsstroy
      Volgogradneftemash
      Spetsgazremstroy
      Krasnodargazstroy
      Volgogaz
      There were and were, they worked with a total turnover of 43 billion rubles in 5.
      In 2008, Arkady Rotenberg, having created Stroygazmontazh, bought daughters from Gazprom together with their contracts for this business, having paid 8,3 billion rubles. By 2014, the notorious Stroygazmontazh became Gazprom's largest contractor with revenue of 225 billion rubles, and Rotenberg became its full owner, the owner of 100% of the enterprise, and then sold it to ... Gazprom! But already for 75 billion rubles. Evil tongues say that Gazprom’s daughters are not things that you can put in your pocket and carry away. That all transactions were paper, that Gazprom’s subsidiaries under Rotenberg worked as before. That is, it was only on paper that they became aliens for Gazprom, and then returned without going anywhere before. But Rotenber put the difference in his pocket
      75 billion - 8,3 billion = 66 billion rubles.
      At the same time, note that the leadership of Gazprom includes foreigners who may have remained dissatisfied with such a fraudulent transaction. If this were not an entrepreneur close to the “body”, the prosecutor’s office would have already taken up all this foul-smelling pseudo-entrepreneurial fuss - with “face to the ground!”, Confiscation of computers and seizure of documents.
      Next.
      In April-May 2019, Gazprom shares were quoted high, but in the summer they began to seriously fall in price. And then a buyer appears, who in two steps acquires a stake in Gazprom in the amount of 6%. Which was supposed to dramatically raise the stock price and bring significant profit to the buyer of the package. It is said that Rotenberg was the person who took part of the profits from the foreigners. The noise was incredible in the press, and I wondered why VO was silent.
      And then suddenly sanctions arose on SP-2.
      Somehow, the conclusions suggest themselves.

      According to the deputy. Aleksey Finikov, head of Gazprom’s financial department, in the third quarter of 2019, shareholder profit fell to 212 billion rubles compared to the same period in 2018 due to falling prices to a minimum over the past 10 years. Nevertheless, for the three quarters of 2019, net profit amounted to 1,1 trillion rubles, and attributable to shareholders amounted to 1,05 trillion rubles.
      Can you imagine?!?
      Only half goes to the budget, half! A trillion is given to shareholders!

      And I imagined: here they will sell the “national treasure,” then all the other “treasures”, taxes will be cut, and our skin is already thin, essentially nothing to tear from us, and we will become superfluous, but now in absolute terms.
      After all, state blocks of shares will be sold.

        You are confusing something. Why a trillion? Gazprom only in a few years will bring payments to shareholders up to 50% of profit. For 2019 there will be about 30%.

          In May 2019, dividends were increased by 60%. From 10,43 to 16,61 rubles per share.
          Everything is based on the press.

            Well, approximately, it is. Net profit for 2018 was about 1.46 trillion rubles, about 394 billion rubles were allocated for payments, which is about 28%. In 2019 there will be even more and by 2021-22 they will bring up to 50%.

        The shareholders are internal and external - the same investors in the company after the fact in the state - that they should not count on dividends. So don’t worry, no taxes will be tightened up, since there is no vacuum money in the economy, all of them are in work, even lying under your mattress.

    Some company sold stocks, before that there is no interest for us, ours is nothing there, only snot under our nose. In general, it was necessary to complete the northern stream until May 22, 2020, Germany made amendments to the energy package, then it would be possible to pump at full capacity, but now they won’t have time, they will use only 50% of the gas pipeline’s capacity, so loud statements like “we all the same we’ll finish "lose 50% of their meaning, the Americans still skillfully and timely stuck a stick in the wheel of Gazprom.

      It just doesn’t lose its meaning - since the use of 50% of the gas transportation system after the completion of SP 2 becomes purely red tape with contracts.

    The company seems to have invited a strategic investor.
    Okay, someone Podymov, but Malyshev, Doctor of Economics, should know that selling at a discount a package of quasi-treasury shares and inviting a strategic investor have nothing in common.
    But the repurchase of own shares in order to change the balance of power among shareholders is yes, if one of the shareholders needs to be moved away, and someone from the management has to be moved - that’s just right. Therefore, all over the world, in order to prevent abuses on the part of management, quasi-treasury shares are legally deprived of voting rights on a par with treasury shares.
    In Russia there is no such norm, or rather, it is of a recommendatory nature. The intrigue with the mysterious buyer will continue until the next meeting of shareholders. When voting, all shareholders must be named. However, if the buyer acquired the shares through the management company, only the name of the manager will be disclosed.

    Yes, it doesn’t matter to me what kind of problems Gazprom has, but this "national treasure" stripped me of 170 thousand for connecting and installing heating to the apartment. Shameless. The budget swells from a surplus, including from oil and gas revenues, and they collect money from the people from the first channel for the treatment of children. And they also have the audacity to tell how hard it is for Gazprom to live ..

      Neither Gazprom, but local offices for connecting to housing and communal services. The state cannot cure everyone in a row for all diseases at its own expense, and this is why charity funds collect money - it must be recognized successfully and quickly.

    Rotenberg sold the construction gas installation, having received mega-profit from the mega-construction of the "power of Siberia" and not anticipating such large-scale financial projects in the future, and then 2 large blocks of Gazprom shares are flown to someone at a great discount. Americans, not otherwise laughing

      Simply put: while Gazprom’s money flowed into large infrastructure projects, a person made profit from these flows (Gazprom simply gave it its construction subsidiaries to carry out this construction), when infrastructure projects were over and money was redirected to payments to shareholders (they’ll increase by 50% payments to Gazprom shareholders in 2020, judging by their own statements), a person (according to rumors), using the money "earned" to build the infrastructure for the same state corporation, becomes its very, very large shareholder , and profit (again, according to rumors) again flows where necessary.

    With those gigantic excess profits. that Gazprom generously spends on its top - and simply - managers, did they really save on super-competent lawyers ??? Or the construction strategy of the SP-2 Miller and Comp. built at random? And besides plan A, which fell, as soon as the Danes began to delay their decision along the route, simply didn’t make up another plan-B?

    Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak called the $ 2,9 billion paid “a drop in the bucket” compared to the risks that were avoided.

    Gazprom shares are now, after the July jump in quotes (see chart), are considered highly underestimated due to debt problems, delays in the construction of BOTH FLOWS and US sanctions. Only after the completion of infrastructure projects, including SP-2, will cash flows be directed to dividends. The author is a mistake. The stream is masculine. Both are correct. If you write both pipes (branches) then correctly, pipe = feminine.

      On what basis does GAZPROM climb into some kind of projects with a payback period of 20-30-50 years?

      And how long do you think the payback period is, for example, drilling several hundred wells, arranging the field itself, building the gas treatment plant and gas processing plant? 3 years or what? Gazprom does not sell bread or parsley with dill.

        MET for what reason to forgive? You can not? Not cost effective? Well, do not do it! In 30-50 years, everything will pay off ... maybe ... yeah-yeah ... Everyone should pay taxes for subsoil use! For this is a tax on what belongs to the people of Russia, its minerals.

    From the text of the article:
    The idea of ​​building new ships on their own does not hold water, as it will take years to realize for which the SP-2 can simply be scrapped. A direct purchase of ships of this type in the face of acute shortages in the world market could cost Gazprom an exorbitant price.
    Information for consideration:
    The largest freighter in the world today has sailed from a shipyard in South Korea on a flight to Rotterdam.
    The Peter Shelter [Pieter Schelte], formerly known as the Pioneering Spirit, designed to transport offshore drilling platforms, is due to arrive in Rotterdam in December.
    It has a width of 124 meters and a length of 382 meters. Its construction cost the owners $ 3 billion.
    The ship belongs to the Swiss company Allseas, which is engaged in the laying of underwater pipelines and underwater construction
    Source: https://www.bbc.com/russian/business/2014/11/141121_largest_work_ship
    Obviously, the “idea to build new ships on their own” is not at all clueless. With a less narrow-minded leadership, Gazprom could well have funded the construction of its own pipe-laying vessel. The price of the issue is $ 3 billion and about 3 years to build.
