Virtual Import: Ukraine refuses to build a new gas pipeline for US LNG


The head of the operator of the gas transmission system of Ukraine Sergey Makogon made a statement that is generally out of the ordinary rhetoric system. According to Makogon, for Ukraine there is no point in connecting with Poland with a new gas pipeline to supply regasified American LNG.


We are talking about a gas pipeline through which, as previously noted, Ukraine could "exchange" with Poland American LNG, which would come by sea. A terminal for LNG is being completed in Poland. And as experts say, it will cost the Polish economy too expensive.

Makogon about refusing to build a new gas pipeline:

The cost of the new project is about $ 200 million. We decided to abandon such a pipeline. We will focus on the reconstruction of two branches of gas supplies to Poland - Geranovichi and Drozdovichi. About 6,6 billion cubic meters of gas per year can be pumped through them, and this covers the needs of today by about 80%.

According to Sergey Makogon, “virtual import” is now possible for Ukraine. Now this is exactly what the company-operator of the Ukrainian GTS calls “reverse”. It is noted that “virtual import” refers to the withdrawal of a part of the volumes of gas that was sent from Russia to Poland under a contract and which Poland, as it were, “reversed” to Ukraine.

Macogon:

This means that Ukraine will be able to additionally buy about 3,2 billion cubic meters of gas a year from Warsaw.

Recall that earlier Poland signed a memorandum with the US Department of Energy on the supply of LNG from the United States to the Swinoujscie terminal.

The cost of such gas for Poland will cost about 30-35% higher than pipe gas from the Russian Federation.

    The cost of LNG is 30 - 35% higher than pipe gas ... let them buy, you have to pay for Pansky Honor, you just might not notice how you will be left without pants ... Germany (the main sponsor of the European Union) is tired of this “suitcase without a handle” in the form Of Poland.

            Lithuania dreamed of becoming a major gas hub in Europe and finally gaining complete independence from Russia - was blown away


            The Stena Clear Sky tanker with a large batch of Russian liquefied natural gas arrived in Klaipeda port on the morning of September 17, according to data from the Marinetraffic.com website. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
            Earlier, the Kommersant newspaper reported, citing sources, that Lithuania, which was striving to reduce its dependence on energy supplies from the Russian Federation, would first buy a large-tonnage batch of Russian liquefied gas. According to the publication, the LNG batch from the Novateka Yamal LNG project was reloaded in the French Montoire onto the Stena Clear Sky vessel and headed to Klaipeda.
            According to Marinetraffic.com, the Stena Clear Sky tanker arrived at the port of Klaipeda on September 17 at 10:23 Lithuanian time.
            Sources of Kommersant reported that the French company Total acted as a seller, and the buyer was the Lithuanian energy state-owned company Lietuvos energijos tiekimas (renamed Ignitis from September 9). However, a source close to Ignitis said that the Stena Clear Sky cargo was most likely intended for Lithuanian fertilizer producer Achema.

        It is unlikely that Poland will completely refuse Russian gas, for it is very profitable to resell it as American LNG.
        But Ukraine doesn’t want to buy gas from PIG estuary ...
        And with American LNG, uninteresting “selection” will not work.

        Yes, and these 35% I think is not the last price. As soon as deliveries go, the US will quickly think about pricing. And then the pshek will be gone nowhere.

        “It’s not a secret for anyone that Poland as a country of the European Union is one of the largest recipients of European aid among the rest of the EU countries. It is known that by 2020 from the EU budget to support programs aimed at improving the quality and standard of living, as well as the competitiveness of the economy, another 20 billion euros have been issued, however, subsidies after both Poland and the Baltic states end there according to the agreements of the European Union. EU assistance to Poland annually amounts to about 2020 billion euros. The size of these subsidies depends on the country's gross domestic product, as well as on specific the needs of any of the sectors of the economy. "

          Have you been to Poland recently?
          Was this year.
          Poland licked worse than Germany. Some tracks are worth a sight for sore eyes.
          The EU has a system with these subsidies - if part of the money for the project comes from the EU, then the EU tightly controls the entire project so that nothing is sided.
          I don’t know whether the Poles themselves ordered it that way, or the EU forced them to prevent it from being pulled away, but the effect of these subsidies in Poland is very noticeable, even enviable.
          It is very different from that of Poland, which I first got in 2004, shortly after joining the EU, this money was clearly not wasted.

            Have you read what they wrote on this issue? A sight for sore eyes will disappear as soon as they find out who the banquet will pay for:
            The Polish government has actually recognized that all the economic successes of the state over the past three decades are primarily associated with obtaining soft loans. Cabinet Mateusz Moravecki notes that all budgets for the mentioned period were scarce. Poland systematically got into debt, which sooner or later had to be repaid.

            No doubt, for the 200 billion euros received from the EU, you can build roads in Poland and lick the facades. It is possible to increase the welfare of its citizens. Let's look at this miracle after 2020. I have no feeling that the Poles are much more hardworking than their Romanian neighbors and Bulgarians.

      I think, often in fact they will use our aggressive LNG, just fictitiously posting it as documents like LNG dimacratic. This has already been done more than once, even with the supply of supposedly "American" coal to Ukraine. They were loaded with cheap Russian coal in Ust-Luga, then passing it off as Pennsylvania. But cho, the money doesn’t smell, and the extra fat will not hurt.

    They just do not invent that Ukraine does not sound that it uses Russian gas. But at least they honestly admitted that the so-called “reverse” is just “virtual import”, although they take gas that did not even reach Poland. And how many bravura statements and screams at Russian talk shows that they had long abandoned Russian gas. Yes, even let the manure be distilled - tired of colic. Whoever is destined to die will die under any circumstances.
