The Energy Triangle Israel-Cyprus-Greece vs. Gazprom: Who Who

72

Today, the mass media of the European and European countries are widely discussing the decision of the three states to strike at Russian Gazprom with their own gas pipeline. The matter concerns the joint construction by Israel, Cyprus and Greece of the EastMed gas pipeline, which is supposed to deliver gas to Europe from two fields: the Israeli Leviathan and the Cypriot Aphrodite. Can the appearance of this underwater gas pipeline in any way harm the Russian-Turkish gas pipeline "Turkish Stream"?


Where did the new deposits come from? Leviathan was opened in 2010. The recoverable gas there is estimated by geologists to be 453 billion cubic meters. m .. Agree, for Gazprom it is not a competitor. In the best case, this gas can provide Israel's own gas consumption for 40-50 years. True, there is another deposit found in 2009 - Tamar. But there is even less recoverable gas - about 307 billion cubic meters. m. Cypriot Aphrodite "younger". Discovered in 2011. But as befits a "lady", she is smaller than the "sea monster". A total of 170 billion cubic meters. m.

So, the total volume of gas that can be produced from two fields, as planned according to the signed agreement, is 620-630 billion cubic meters. If Europe needs about 460 billion cubic meters. m. (in 2018) is not even a minuscule. This is zilch. Gazprom annually exports to Europe up to 200 billion cubic meters of gas.

Now about the gas pipeline itself. The depths at the gas production site are 1500-2500 meters. This greatly complicates gas production. And the length of the gas pipeline itself is, naturally, taking into account that you have to bypass the economic zone of Turkey, which will not give a building permit, about 1900 km. For comparison, SP-2 is 1200 km.

Let's add here the depths along which the pipes need to be laid. The depth of the Mediterranean Sea along the EastMed route reaches 3000 meters. The cost of working at such depths increases. According to Israeli experts, the total cost of the EastMed gas pipeline will be at least $ 7 billion. Compare with SP-2. The length of the gas pipeline is 1200 km, the depth of the pipe is from 50 to 250 meters. The cost is $ 9,8 billion. The difference in the cost of gas pipelines is explained by the fact that EastMed was originally designed as a political project. The EU even allocated about $ 39 million for the design.

There is one more indicator that must be mentioned. This is the expected capacity of the pipeline. The planned capacity of EastMed is 15 billion cubic meters. However, according to independent experts, it is simply impossible to squeeze more than 10 billion out of Leviathan and Aphrodite. That is, at a comparable cost, gas from the Israeli gas pipeline will cost more.

Output? In an effort to oust Gazprom from the southern European gas market, the EU and the US are playing exactly on the side of the Russian gas giant. The created "Energy Triangle" of Greece, Cyprus and Israel cannot actually compete with Gazprom. However, its creation pushes Asian gas producers to closer contacts with the Russian concern. 

For the countries of Central Asia and Azerbaijan, there are simply no other ways to deliver their own gas to the EU, except for the TANAR (bypassing Russia) and two Russian gas pipelines - the Blue Stream and the Turkish Stream. In addition, the Energy Triangle forces Turkey to work more closely with Russia.

        In terms of "squeezing" the interpretation is not correct, we will rather "sweep away" our small share in the total volume of gas supplied to Europe. And by the way, this is not entirely bad because despite the fact that your gas will be more expensive than Gazprom's, it will still be cheaper than liquefied American gas, and therefore, snatching out your share, you cut the share of shale from the United States. And yet, yes, it (g / wire) still needs to be built.

      It depends on what volumes you want to compare, according to Leviathan 2Р it’s only 453 billion m3, and 3С - about 3.5 trillion m3, less than our Bovanenkovsky (2Р ~ 5трл.m3). And do not forget about the level of production. The design capacity of Bovanenkovsky is about 150 billion m3 per year, a third of your Leviathan.

      At the same time, the effective managers of Gazprom seem to have miscalculated over the pipeline gas. "Gazprom's supplies to Europe collapsed." Https://lenta.ru/news/2020/01/09/gazprom/

      What is your post for? What are the fools sitting there? Why don’t you mention that in the EU gas storages are clogged with gas under a cork, and you need to pay for the rental of storage facilities. Here they are released. So, not deliveries to Europe collapsed, but transit.

    Well, personally, I will no longer be, and you probably measured yourself three lives, or what?

    "After us, even a flood."
    I understand Louis XIV, he walked well then, and he didn’t give a damn that Louis XVI was chopped off.
    But something we rejoice in the construction of gas pipelines, nothing comes from the sale of gas (and oil, too). We buy gas and oil products even more expensive than those ... to whom we sell them, although in all oil and gas producing countries it’s the other way around. Money for gas is not distributed among citizens, but settles somewhere in the amerta or is appropriated by a handful of oligarchs. So maybe a moratorium would be introduced for ten years to sell gas and oil abroad?

    what's the point? there is no gasification in Siberia; we burn coal and firewood.

      But it’s interesting to set up boiler houses in the village and arrange steam heating or to stretch a gas pipe to the village? And it’s somehow dumb in the 21st century to heat wood and coal.

        1. At one time we pulled ourselves, threw off $ 3700 from the nose, there was gas, something at $ 1,80 (I don’t remember for a long time)
        2. Yasen stump everything was transferred to the balance of inter-regional gas supply. The stump is clear, they put it on their balance, and then they wrote off this money again: put it in their pocket = increased their assets
        3.Gas already at 6,7r (approximately, for memory)
        So consider whether it is profitable for you to participate in the "national property the ruin of Russia "?
        And isho:

        $ 55 billion. Gazprom cost in 2004 year. Apple Inc. at that time it was estimated by the market about 2,5 times cheaper
        in 2008 Gazprom was worth something around $ 478 billion


        January 1, 2018 Apple’s net cash reserve totaled $ 25 billion on the same date. Gazprom’s net debt, a 24% year-over-year increase, reached a staggering amount. 2 trillion 398 billion rubles, which is equivalent to 41,5 billion dollars.

    Is the author trying to justify the fabulous price of sp-2? Well, it’s not necessary. Contractors earned money and transferred to offshore. Late to drink Borjomi.
    With regards to not a competitor? Well, of course, by volume. But Gazprom will bite off its 10-15 lard cubes. And given that there are a dozen and a dozen there are no volumes of 200 lard cubes of sale. Accordingly, there is no income.
    For payback flows are simply silent.

    According to Israeli experts, the total cost of the EastMed gas pipeline will be at least $ 7 billion. Compare with the SP-2. The length of the pipeline is 1200 km, the depth of the pipe is from 50 to 250 meters. The cost of 9,8 billion. $. The difference in the cost of gas pipelines is explained by the fact that EastMed was originally designed as a political project. The EU has even allocated about $ 39 million for design.

    It seems that the article Peskov wrote, well, the one with a mustache

    Comrade Alexander Staver -You would at least be shy (so hang noodles)
    1. SP-2 project is PURE political, unlike EastMed, just.
    Economically, it is not profitable - in general, like the Turkish stream, and the strength of Siberia
    For which they were immediately dismissed: Alexander Fek and Alexander Kudrin
    According to Sberbank CIB, Nord Stream-2 will cost $ 17 billion - this amount also includes land-based approaches to the gas pipeline (Gazprom estimated the project cost at € 9,5 billion). The contract for the construction of one of these approaches worth 74,6 billion rubles. without a tender, recently received Stroytransneftegaz, analysts recall.


    Read more at RBC:

    "Our" will be more expensive, maybe
    2. If we compare the cost of laying the SP-1 pipe in the Russian Federation (population density, swamps, low salary and low cost of resources) and in Germany (urbanization beyond measure, everything is more expensive than the Russian Federation), where the cost in the Russian Federation was MANDALLY higher (who says 2, and who is 6 times) than in Germany, then SP-2 will be more expensive than 4 times than EastMed.
    As proved by Sberbank CIB analytics.
    because, as we have, Gazprom’s pipes are laid exclusively by Gennady Timchenko and Arkady Rotenberg
    3. Again new candle the pipe factory "for some reason" suddenly appeared when the old ones are 50% full ..
    Gazprom’s gas monopoly unexpectedly halted pipe purchases for Nord Stream 2 and severed tens of billions of rubles from existing contracts with metallurgists.


    what a paradox! since 2016 everything was fine, but here, after a year or so 2a suddenly "overpriced".
    Sberbank issued a billion rubles loan to Zagorsky Pipe Plant


    Denis Safin + Nikolay Egorov = new favorites of Gazprom

    “Now about the gas pipeline itself. The depths at the gas production site are 1500-2500 meters. This greatly complicates gas production. ”
    Author! For Gazprom (with its sanctions) this is deep. For Shell - nothing, it has a dozen platforms in the Gulf of Mexico with such a depth of 2500m.

    “Taking into account the fact that it will be necessary to bypass the economic zone of Turkey, which will not give a building permit, about 1900 km. ”
    Again the author was mistaken again -
    “The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is the maritime zone provided for in the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, with respect to which the state has special rights with respect to the exploration and use of marine resources, including the generation of energy from water and wind. The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) includes territory that extends either from the coast or in federal systems from the borders of the sea in constituent states (in most cases, from 3 to 12 nautical miles) to 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers) from the coast.
    And here is a map of the gas pipeline. Author! Where did you find the squiggle bypassing the Turkish EEZ?
    https://www.euractiv.com/section/energy/opinion/us-russia-rivalry-in-the-middle-east-is-now-spilling-over-into-the-mediterranean-sea/

    “The difference in the cost of gas pipelines is explained by the fact ($ 7bn vs. SP-2 $ 10,5bn) that EastMed was originally designed as a political project.”
    And again blah blah from the author! The cost is lower because a lot of land, (480 km, 1.300 km of water), another diameter, etc. In addition, the $$$ burden on member countries is lower than Gazprom alone.

    “However, according to independent experts, squeezing more than 10 billion from Leviathan and Aphrodite is simply impossible. That is, at a comparable cost, gas from the Israeli gas pipeline will cost more. ”
    Author! Since the cost of construction / production / transportation is lower, then you can sell at a price lower than Gazprom! Is not it?

    “For the countries of Central Asia and Azerbaijan, there are simply no other ways to deliver their own gas to the EU, except for the TANAR (bypassing Russia) and two Russian gas pipelines - the Blue Stream and the Turkish Stream”
    Author! The third amendment will leave Gazprom with a 1/2 pipe, i.e. 50% filling. Gazprom will beg Azerbaijan to use its pipe!

    Meanwhile, gas prices in Europe have fallen from $ 250 to $ 150 per 31 cubic meters, and due to an oversupply in Asia and the launch of a pipe from the giant Leviathan field by Israel on December 90, prices may fall to $ XNUMX.

    Those. Nord Stream 2 may never pay off.

    Yes, I really heard that our responsible people will keep the price of gas off the shelf very low.
