Russian gas began to flow to Europe along a new route, “old” is also in operation


2020 began with large "gas" News. One of them was reported by the Ukrainian GTS Operator on Facebook.


We have already transported the first cubic meters of gas to the EU under a new transit contract and European rules at interstate points, the GTS is operating normally

- announced the company.

This information was also confirmed by the director of LLC GTS Operator of Ukraine Sergey Makogon.

At the end of December, Ukraine and Russia signed a gas transit agreement. The contract guarantees Kiev to pump through its territory up to 65 billion blue fuel in the first year of operation, and 40 billion in the next four.

At the same time, news on the pipeline topic came from the other side of Cherny. On January 1, natural gas arrived in Bulgaria from Russia via the Turkish Stream subsea gas pipeline. This is the first time that a country receives fuel without using the transit capacities of neighboring Romania, which, as noted by a number of media outlets, reduces financial costs.

The message on the supply of fuel by this route, the Russian and Bulgarian sides signed in December. The Turkish Stream project provides for the construction of two pipeline lines from Russia through the Black Sea to the European part of Turkey. The capacity of each string will be about 15,75 billion cubic meters. meters per year.

    . The contract guarantees Kiev to pump through its territory up to 65 billion blue fuel in the first year of operation, and 40 billion in the next four.

    Wrong spelling
    Not “up to 65 billion” under the contract, but not less than 65 billion in the first year, and not less than 40 in the next
    That is, more is possible, but not less

      It is possible and less. But you have to pay, as for pumping 65 and further 40 billion a year.

          But does “download or pay” correspond to the third energy package? We talked about booking capacities for each month, as much as needed, and now there is a commitment?

            The restrictions apply if the company is a monopolist, the producer and seller of gas, is the owner of the gas pipeline itself
            In this case, the owners are different

              Well, as it were, no.
              OPAL, NEL and EUGAL also do not want to load Gazprom gas with more than 50%. And this is a VERY serious problem for Gazprom.

                    . The throughput on the border of the Russian Federation with Ukraine is 288 billion m³ per year, on the borders of Ukraine with Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova - 178,5 billion m³ per year, including 142,5 billion m³ with the EU countries in year

                    Since the Soviet times, the Ukrainian GTS has a large throughput, significantly exceeding real deliveries
                    They are not very dependent on politics, in 2017 under Poroshenko transit was more than in 2012-13 under Yanukovych

              Gazprom had to directly reserve volumes from the GTS, and now there was a gasket in the face of Naftogaz, which is the only buyer of volumes from the GTS and a kind of “guarantor”, before which Gazprom must comply with the download or pay rule, but who is not responsible for anything. By the way, you do not know Swedish law, as it were, more “flexible” and impartial than in the Netherlands?

                In this case, it is necessary to compare point-by-point the requirements of this third energy package and this contract, for this you need texts of both, if you have a link to them, drop it, it will be interesting to see what is there and how
                As far as I understand, the third energy package is designed to separate the producer, seller and company-owner of the gas pipeline

              Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov inspected the construction of the Balkan Stream. Boyko Borisov flew by helicopter over the construction of a 45-kilometer section in the Pleven region.

              “Work was going on here for the New Year. They work both on Saturday and Sunday. I’ll send photos to Vladimir Putin, let the Russian president see what is working in Bulgaria “- said the Prime Minister.
              “Since the start of the Balkan Stream, 18 pipes have been laid in Bulgaria. Two Greek and one Italian company work on the highway “- Borisov said, specifying that Italian and American equipment are working.
              “I think that we will build the Balkan Stream on time, by the end of May”- said Boyko Borisov, stressing that Bulgaria is the gas strategic distribution center of the Balkans.

        This is a fairytale. In international courts, the Russian Federation is always to blame. Now the terms of any agreement (if necessary) can be reviewed and made so that the Russian Federation will be guilty and will pay in connection with the "poor financial situation 404". I’m afraid that we won’t get $ 3 billion ......

        No! For transportation and its cost are specified in the contract according to Euro norms. If in a nutshell. Tg the smaller the volume of transit, the higher the price. Until January 1, 2020, Gazprom paid for transit half the average European price! So from January XNUMX, everything will be adult and personal agreements between interested individuals will not be.
        However, as well as the possibility of supplying gas to the Ukrainian market with sauce of all kinds of discounts. Either the exchange price minus the cost of transportation or sell Gazprom to Europe or else a thread. Therefore, Gazprom howled. There is no muddy water in the contracts; there is nowhere to fish

          As for the “guaranteed” volumes (65 and 40 thereafter), the transit price is not considered to have changed much.
          The parties do not disclose the tariff at which Russian gas will be pumped through Ukraine. But Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky wrote on his page on the American social network Facebook that Ukraine would receive “at least more than $ 7 billion” from this contract in five years. It's about the amount of $ 7,2 billion, Vitrenko specified. Based on these estimates, pumping 1 thousand cubic meters. m to Europe through the territory of Ukraine will cost Gazprom $ 31,25. This is slightly less than the current tariff for the transit of Russian gas between Sujah ​​on the border with Russia and Velke Kapushany on the border with Slovakia - $ 32,4 per 1 thousand cubic meters. m

        Slovaks take gas
        There are generally subtleties in reverse
        GTS operators of Ukraine and Slovakia concluded interconnect agreements

        The new Ukrainian gas transportation operator LLC Operator of the GTS of Ukraine (OGTSU, Kiev) and the operator of the Slovak GTS Eustream concluded an interconnection agreement, said European Commission Vice President Maros Shefcovic. “I welcome the interconnection agreement concluded between Ukraine and Slovakia and strongly supported by the European Commission. All parts for gas transit along the Ukrainian route are now in place. Great news for Europe’s energy security!” He tweeted on Tuesday.


        The technical cooperation agreement (IA, interconnection agreement) signed in Brussels on Tuesday according to European rules from January 1, 2020 between the operators of the Ukrainian and Slovak GTSs opens up the possibility of virtual reversal, said the head of the NAC, Andrey Kobolev.

        "The main element of the victory here is the elimination of Gazprom between Uzhgorod and Velke Kapushany as a superoperator," he said at a press conference in Kiev on Tuesday.

        “This is what we have been struggling over the past five years, and only now we have managed to achieve it because there were limitations, including on our part. Now that all issues related to gas measurement will be resolved, this will be a serious breakthrough. It will be mean that at all points of accession with the European Union the European rules will come into force, which, among other things, provide, for example, a virtual reverse, "the head of the NAC added.

        If all 60 billion cubic meters were redirected along the South Stream, Bulgaria would receive $ 2-3 yards annually. Very good for a seven millionth country ...

It’s admirable for this situation - using the conflict in Ukraine as an excuse, the Germans sold the resolution blocking the South Stream, so that in a few years they could realize the Nord Stream-2 project and take all this traffic under their own control.

            This scheme would not work. The project was supposed to be joint anyway, the third energy package is nothing to do with it. There was a special resolution of the European Parliament.

            Ideally, the flow through Bulgaria should be launched with one branch to Greece and Italy and the other to Serbia, Hungary and Austria. How would we so well compete with the Germans? What about bros? wink

              Undoubtedly Germany is a weight player. And no doubt, they have the opportunity to push their interests!

              Just such a scheme was proposed by the Bulgarian side to Gazprom. In my opinion, Gazprom and Ross. management made a huge mistake. In fact, the current Turkish / Balkan stream repeats this idea. And after all has passed! Only fraud less.
              Gazprom flew by far, we are at a lower level. But in the hands of Erdogan, there were strong trump cards against the Russian Federation and the EU! By the way, Bulgaria acquired 20% of its assets from the LNG terminal in Alexandroupoli, in addition, they concluded an agreement with Azerbaijan for the supply of 1 billion sq. M. gas, so we won’t stay without gas.
              Ideally, the flow through Bulgaria should be launched with one branch to Greece and Italy and the other to Serbia, Hungary and Austria. How would we so well compete with the Germans? What about bros?

              There is a digression from Bulgaria to Greece, even 2! The pipe from Alexandroupoli can work towards Greece by reverse, and there is another one through southwestern Bulgaria. Ideally the best solution, the pipe is direct from the Crimea to our northern Dobruzhi. Only 370 km. In 2016-17, Gazprom conducted a survey of the western coast of Crimea! In addition, by conducting a pipe under the Kerch bridge, they made it an "excess" fraud, just in case ... But until the Crimea receives internationally recognized status as part of the Russian Federation, this option is unacceptable for political reasons.

                Just such a scheme was proposed by the Bulgarian side to Gazprom.

                More precisely, it was the desire of the EU European Commissioners - Gazprom at its own expense (100%) builds UP, and then transfers it to the management of EU companies. And, of course, pays them for transit. The pressure on OPAL goes in the same direction - give it to us, without redemption, and use it, just count the money.
                But NEL, which works for Germany, France, Holland, is not subjected to any pressure: 100% of Gazprom’s pipe pumps 100% of Gazprom’s gas, 100% of its capacity, but the European Commissioners have no complaints.
                So Bulgaria was bent in vain - just the 2nd energy package was directed against it and Eastern Europe.

                  Not necessary. Russian too.
                  So Bulgaria was bent in vain - just the 2nd energy package was directed against it and Eastern Europe.

                  Bulgaria won the best conditions for itself in that situation. There could be no positive result in the event of a confrontation with the EU. Today, Bulgaria retains its ability to be the main gas distribution center in the Balkans.

                This is already a dream. Gazprom has stopped investing in Europe’s gas infrastructure. Now your desires are at your expense. You can lay the pipe yourself to Novorossiysk and get gas. Find $ 9 billion and build.

                  Hardly, because the EU itself is a profitable market and will not remain empty. More money is wetted at the LNG terminals. To believe that in the EU "some fools are sitting" is very naive. In my personal opinion, investments should be concentrated in the development of technologies for controlled thermonuclear fusion / UTES / and renewable energy sources. They have a future. hi

                    The EU is now unprofitable, for sellers, the market, in all respects. Stagnation in the economy, despite quotas - overproduction of food, negative interest rates. Only with very low costs of their own can one hold on there. Therefore, in the coming year, LNG will undress its traders into cowards.
                    Renewable sources, renewable energy sources, with the cessation of subsidies, lose their attractiveness. And RES is not suitable for industry.

                      LNG is certainly more expensive. But a monopole breaks through them. But renewable energy sources have no alternative if they want to be preserved as a biological species. Look, the atmosphere covers like a thin film of the Earth. And in it we burn billions of tons of hydrocarbons! There will be nothing to breathe soon!

                      At the same time, there are colossal inexhaustible sources of conditionally pure energy. Mankind, as it has mastered technology, has absorbed increasingly powerful sources. It is a matter of time before we move on to the next stage. Countries that have made a breakthrough in technology will have a total advantage. So it was, is and will be. This is a normal evolutionary process. hi

                        To put 1 ton of structures into orbit, it is necessary to burn 100 tons of kerosene.
                        To start one wind turbine, it takes 700 tons of cement, for the manufacture of which it is necessary to burn 490 tons (not cubic meters!) Of gas, plus a hundred tons of steel with a hundred tons of coke.
                        To make 1 square meter of solar panels, 5 kg of aluminum and 30 kg of steel are required per frame. This is approximately 60-90 watts. You can calculate how much will go only to your house, city.
                        As long as there is gas, coal, oil, we can have fun renewable energy. As soon as it ends - charcoal and swamp ore.
                        Bulgaria lost the chance to live the next 40 years in wealth and abundance - its own chemistry, its fertilizers, its cement, the heat in the winter in houses, its own electricity. Alas.

For the system to work, the energy produced must be greater than the energy consumed by the machines. The same goes for controlled thermonuclear fusion. The sun is essentially a mega-thermonuclear central. So far, technology is more efficient in providing energy from hydrocarbons. But there is no doubt that very soon technological progress will bring handicap for renewable energy sources. Their effectiveness is constantly growing. After all, all nature functions in this way! Otherwise, the planet will suffocate. You have gas, oil, coal, and what will you breathe?

                        The EC is not a parliament; it does not adopt laws. He sets the rules. The Bundestag made a decision that NEL is an internal gas pipeline, and no energy package extends to it. Slovakia will adopt a law that OPAL - not a transit but a dead end gas pipeline - and OPAL will work at full capacity. On the territory of Bulgaria, UP was under the full jurisdiction of Bulgaria, and at the moment of the conclusion of the contract, it was fully consistent with the norms of Bulgarian laws. But the prime minister pulled because of pressure from the EC, demanding to change the laws of Bulgaria and the terms of the contract after its conclusion. What Bulgaria could not do, the precedent of NEL and SP-1, and now SP-2 - before our eyes. The only property of Gazprom under the restrictions of EP-2 and EP-3 is OPAL. But even that Germany on its territory is going to bring it out of action by the INTERNAL LAW.
                        In general, the Bulgarian confidence in the infallibility of the EC bureaucrats has been and is worth and will cost Bulgaria billions every year - gas will ALWAYS be $ 50 more expensive than for Germany.

            When concluding contracts, buyers are interested in the exchange or contract price and shipping cost. Through the "Turkish stream", now, delivery to Bulgaria is cheaper than through Ukraine and Romania, so gas will be relatively cheaper.

              It is truth too. Another factor influenced was LNG. In Europe, gas prices fell 32% year on year. In 2019 to 2018, Gazprom's supplies to Bulgaria decreased by 15%. Gazprom retained its position as the largest supplier, but its share in Bulgaria decreased to 85,59%. In 2018, it was 99,2%.

                  No value what kind of gas and where it comes from. It is more important that competition is created and prices are reduced for consumers. For Bulgaria and for Europe, this is the main goal. The EU seeks to equalize the competitive opportunities of suppliers. So that no one will gain dominance in the market. Here our interests coincide.

    On January 1, Bulgaria received natural gas from Russia via the Turkish Stream subsea gas pipeline. This is the first time that a country receives fuel without using the transit capacities of neighboring Romania, which, as noted by a number of media outlets, reduces financial costs.

    I want to believe that the Bulgarians, nevertheless, compensate our costs because of them.

    From what they wrote, we can conclude that SP2 will not work until the end of 2020, and not the middle of the year, as they wrote earlier
    If this is so, then it turns out that Ukraine will pump the same volumes of gas this year as last year, something like 90 billion cubic meters, minus those 2-3 billion cubic meters that go directly to the Bulgarians.
    Or am I misunderstood something?

          The restrictions are on OPAL, and SP1 is here as a result.
          As for your proposal, EUGAL may also be subject to restrictions. He is promised not to fail under the third package, but .......

          There was infa on the internet, Gazprom is supposed to be soft and concessions to Ukraine due to Germany's promises to withdraw OPAL and EUGAL from the third energy package. From that, such volumes were announced after the first year - 40bn.m3, just that balance, with a full load of sp1 and sp2.

          If we knew about this in advance, then the marine part of SP2 could not have been built. All 10 billion dollars would have remained in your pocket.

            The restriction has long been,
            just the Germans were able to bring opal for a while
            The third energy package was adopted in 2009
            If the problem is only in the ground, then the most logical way to build the ground was to double the ground parts of sp1 and use half
            Similarly, in SP2- with this logic, all ground extensions should have double bandwidth
            At the same time, both SP1 and SP2 can, it turns out, work 100 percent
            But in fact they don’t do it, it seems that the marine parts are also affected

In the EU, the “pipe” is part of a single European gas transmission network. The longest part, just through Bulgaria passes.

                        Do not write unscientific garbage. Like your Bulgarian colleague. According to the energy package, the provision on no more than 3% accessibility to ANY gas pipeline applies to everyone. No company can fill its own gas with more than 50% of any gas pipeline, regardless of who the owner or operator is. .

                    Long! Bulgaria has a developed gas transport network. More than 80% of the compressor stations on the Balkan Peninsula are located in Bulgaria. Here is a sketchy map, not quite complete by the way. For example, there is still a pipe from northern Bulgaria / where the BP / route to the south-east is going on.

                    Once again. From Serbia to Hungary and so on, what permits and when did you get? From which alternative sources to Gazprom is the pipe replenished by 50% according to the 3rd EP?

                    All necessary permissions received. The object is being built in time. Details - in the internet. The “50%” rule does not apply to the Balkan Stream, since it is not owned by the supplier.

By the way, ask him whose property, for example, is the Serbian section through which supposedly gas will go to Europe. Well, or about the rule from the 3rd energy package through which new pipelines should not cause economic harm to old ones and like that Romania will react to the loss of revenue if gas flowing through its territory is redirected to bypass.

                      Medvedev: strong EU guarantees needed to extend Turkish Stream through Bulgaria
                      Economics and business March 4, 0:26
                      According to the Russian Prime Minister, “the new branch should not repeat the sad fate of South Stream.”

                      MOSCOW, March 4. / TASS /. The decision to extend the Turkish Stream gas pipeline through Bulgaria can only be made upon firm guarantees that the EU will not impede gas supplies along this route. This was stated by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in an interview with the Bulgarian newspaper Trud in anticipation of his visit to Sofia.

                      "The new branch should not repeat the sad fate of South Stream. So the decision to extend the Turkish Stream through Bulgarian territory depends on whether Sofia will be able to get firm guarantees that the EU will not obstruct gas supply plans for the new gas pipeline," - said Medvedev.

                      According to Medvedev, "the option of extending the second branch of the Turkish Stream to Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary is currently being worked out." “But the final decision depends not only on us. The choice between the various options for continuing the Turkish Stream will be largely determined by the readiness of the gas transportation infrastructure. Which, in turn, depends on the interest and specific actions of the governments of the respective countries,” the Prime Minister emphasized. .

                      In this regard, Medvedev noted that he sees Bulgaria moving in this direction - the adoption by Bulgartransgaz of a final investment decision on the implementation of a project for the development and expansion of the gas transportation system, as well as the successful completion of the collection of applications for booking future gas transportation capacities. "The road for the start of construction work is open. But for such a large and expensive project as a gas pipeline, additional guarantees are needed," the head of the Russian cabinet said.

                      .

                      In turn, the first deputy head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation Sergey Prikhodko noted that the issue of obtaining guarantees from the EU when considering the option of laying the second string of the Turkish Stream with access to the gas distribution center in Baumgarten, Austria, concerns not only Bulgaria. “The final approval of the Russian gas supply route will, of course, take into account the position of the European Commission. We believe that EU member countries interested in Russian gas should receive firm guarantees from the European Union that plans to build the second line of the Turkish Stream will not be violated by politically motivated Brussels’s decision, "Prikhodko told reporters on the eve of the visit of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation to Bulgaria

                      These are the words and why they were told a separate question (there is an opinion, so as not to draw attention to this project ahead of schedule), but there are things - the Bulgarian site is being built, the Serbian - built and no one has yet protested, nor the Romanians, who are not so sensitive to To these issues, the Poles, the above quote about the offer to the Hungarians to connect and again there are no special warnings from either the EU or the others ... By the way, the same Sergey Prikhodko about the Serbian section - "The most active is the development of cooperation with Serbia. The construction of a gas pipeline on Serbian territory is underway 402 km long, designed to receive gas from the Turkish Stream ... With the commissioning of the entire system of transit pipelines continuing the Turkish Stream, Serbia will reliably provide domestic demand for gas, and will also carry out the transit of blue fuel to countries Central Europe "- the truth is already in October 2019 and somehow without mentioning the EU ...
                      With regard to Serbia, they consider that this issue has been agreed with the European Energy Community, in accordance with 3 energy packages
                      According to him, on October 1 of this year, the structure he heads was created by the company Transportgas Serbia and will continue the process of dividing the areas of activity in accordance with the requirements of the EU and the European Energy Community. In the coming period, Serbiagas will begin to build the Nish-Dimitrovgrad-Sofia interconnector for which European funds have been allocated in the amount of € 48 million, as well as the interconnector with Romania, which together with the gas supply direction from Baumgarten (Central European gas hub) and a gas pipeline from the Bulgarian to the Hungarian border as a continuation of the Turkish Stream will create conditions for the opening of the gas market in Serbia on October 1, 2020 in accordance with European rules and regulations, ”Bayatović quotes the press service of his company. It is reported that the EU has allocated € 1,7 to create SCADA software for managing the gas transmission system in Serbia, XNUMX million

                      Medvedev: strong EU guarantees needed to extend Turkish Stream through Bulgaria

                      The fact that the TP reached the border of Bulgaria and the pipe is already connected to you, doesn’t it mean something? And Gazprom has booked frauds. In general, the statements of GDP and Medvedev seemed to me to be “interesting,” since there were only 2 options for continuing the TP - through Bulgaria and Greece - EU country wallpapers. They have the same EU rules / laws. Funny, they built the second string, reached the coast and started to “demand a guarantee”! And if you didn’t receive it? What will they do with it, since it was originally intended for European consumers? laughing

                      With the border of the EU, this is a problem of the EU (and already in coastal waters). The fact is still little known: During pre-trial proceedings (2018-2019), the EC and Gazprom agreed that one of the entry points to the EU necessarily will be on the border of Bulgaria. Therefore, the “threats” from the Ross side looked very funny. authorities that can go through Greece. Could / at least more expensive /, but the network to Bulgaria still remained in charge. bully

                      On April 15, 2019, the EU Council approved amendments to the EU Gas Directive, which is part of the EU’s Third Energy Package, on the extension of European standards to gas pipelines going to the EU from third countries. They will have to work according to the same rules as pipelines located on the territory of EU Member States.

                      There are four basic rules. The first stipulates that the same company that produces and sells gas (the so-called unbundling, or the separation of assets) cannot transport gas. The second is the access of third companies to the gas pipeline. The third requirement - competitive tariffs for gas transportation will be set by the regulator of the recipient country. Fourth, the gas pipeline should work transparently, in particular with regard to security of supply

    from which alternative sources to Gazprom is the pipe replenished ..

    I apologize for not saying that LNG is already being delivered in Bulgaria from the LNG terminal in Alexandroupolis / Greece /. According to the internal Bulgarian gas transmission network, it can be pumped to the Balkan stream, and in any direction. hi In 2019, we already bought 300 million square meters, and this year we gave a request for 450 million square meters. It turns out 30% cheaper than Gazprom. Until recently, Gazprom had been 100% monopolists in the Bulgarian market. Bulgaria received gas at inflated prices.

    By the way, what is there in the contract that is described in case the gas consumer will pump less than the required 65-40 cubic meters? They say "well, we do not need more than 20", for example. Will it pull in force majeure, will there be any sanctions again?

    It can’t. The capacities are reserved by Gazprom. The restriction by half was bypassed with the help of the Turks.

    Transit and delivery are different things. So there is no choice. What we will actually find out after the New Year.

    In principle, Bulgaria is trying to do the same as h..ly. As soon as transit appears, the demand for discounts begins.

    Therefore, the direct channel is always better. And gas, except for Russian gas, is becoming less and less in the EU, 2023 billion cubic meters of gas are discharged from Norway until 25, + other suppliers are pretty small and become consumers themselves + we don’t forget the abandonment of nuclear power plants in Germany + Polyaks don’t forget will have to close their coal stations because of rising EU fines for greenbacks laughing

    "From January to September 2019, the Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP), the main part of the Southern Gas Corridor project, transported about 1,798 bcm of gas, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) reported."

    At the same time, Azerbaijan purchased 999 million cubic meters from Russia and another 799,2 million cubic meters were imported from Iran. Total 1 billion 798,2 million cubic meters of gas. Amazingly matching digits to the point.

    I’ll add, before the launch of TANAP, Azerbaijan purchased only 349 million cubic meters of gas laughing lol

    Realizing that, with all the aversion to reality, there is no other alternative, a number of oil and gas multinationals are trying to "find" the missing gas on the other side of the Caspian - in Turkmenistan. Formally, any project there is impossible until the final demarcation of the water area, the process along which is ongoing, but is still far from complete. In practice, Western lawyers think that they have found a “gap” allowing them to begin designing a joint Azerbaijani-Turkmen project for laying the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline. Georgia secured the support of the European Commission and expressed its readiness to finance the start of design work.

    Turkmenistan’s interest in “joining” the SGC is simple. In 2016, Russia stopped buying Turkmen gas, and at the beginning of 2017, Turkmenistan quarreled with Iran, as a result of losing export there. As a result, the country is able to produce 75-80 billion cubic meters of gas per year, and sells only 29,6 billion to its only buyer - China, which enjoys the hopeless position of Ashgabat and pays little - only 185 dollars per thousand cubic meters. The fall in export revenue hit the country’s income and forced the government of Turkmenistan to significantly cut social guarantees. The incoming money is only enough to service loans received from China.

    The implementation of the TAP will allow us to direct the "existing surpluses" through the Southern corridor "to the West." 12-15 billion are prepared for the first branch, then another 15-16 billion for the second. The project is actively supported by EU banks and that part of the European elite, which actively does not like the forced rapprochement of the European Union with Russia.

    Theoretically, Turkmen gas can provide both the TANAP loading and the needs of the Trans-Adriatic part of the South Generating Company. In the long run, even squeeze Gazprom. And if you look very far and take into account very, very long-term plans (today it’s more likely just dreams, although not without reasonable justification) of Turkmenistan to double its production with Western help, Europe can really get through the Southern Corridor (taking into account its expansion) to about 90 billion cubic meters of gas, which is approximately 70-75% of Gazprom’s current supplies to the EU. In theory.

    Because in practice, over the next five years, 6 billion cubic meters is all that Turkmenistan can pass through the South Generating Company. Consequently, they will not reach the European border of Turkey at all. At the same time, Nord Stream-2 and South Stream-2 will be commissioned in the next three to four years, which will increase Russian gas exports to Europe from 155,9 (data for 2017) to 226-227 billion .cubes per year.

    Against this background, even if Azerbaijan manages to increase production to at least 18 billion, and Turkmenistan manages to miraculously stretch the first branch along the bottom of the Caspian, then even in this case Europe will reach 22-24 billion cubic meters from the force, which will make up 10% of Russian volumes. They will certainly bring additional money to suppliers, but they will not be able to seriously affect the overall balance of supply and demand in the European gas market, especially given the drop in European production. The dominance of Russian gas in Europe has no alternative.
