In Europe, natural gas fell to a minimum in 15 years


Due to global problems in the economy, which caused a significant decrease in demand for natural gas in Europe, there was a sharp reduction in the cost of LNG for European consumers. As a result, its price in spot trading in the Netherlands on TTF, which is considered the largest hub in Europe, fell below $ 100 per thousand cubic meters.


Last week, March 17, natural gas cost $ 99 per thousand cubic meters. Today it already amounted to 93,5 dollars.

Thus, the gas price has reached a minimum over the past 15 years.

Over the past year, the share of gas from the Russian company Gazprom in the European market decreased by 2,5 percent, reaching 42,5%. Last year, the company was unable to deliver the planned 200 billion cubic meters to Europe and significantly reduced prices. Gazprom's January export earnings fell almost doubled to $ 3 billion.

A negative factor was the need to renegotiate contracts with a number of countries, as their terms expired. For example, under Gazprom’s new agreement with Bulgaria, gas prices have dropped by 40 percent.

Today, not only a decrease in gas prices was noted, but also a drop in oil prices. At today's auction, the price of Brent crude oil amounted to $ 25 per barrel.

    the price of gas is tied to the price of oil - this was to be expected. Gazprom: now oil peg accounts for 30% of all gas supplies to Europe. It turned out a double blow to the budget of Russia. In addition, the main problem - the global supply of oil and gas significantly exceeds demand.

            Sarkism (Greek: σαρκασμός, from σαρκάζω, literally “tearing the flesh”) is a type of satirical denunciation, stinging mockery [1], the highest degree of irony, based not only on the increased contrast of the implied and expressed, but also on the immediate intentional exposure of the implied. Statements and works of art made with sarcasm affirm one thing, but make it clear that they mean the opposite - for example, with the help of a mocking hyperbole or intonation.

      It is interesting to observe that each point of view on this subject has enough adherents. Some say yes, all this garbage, let’s break through, in the long term, the victory will be ours, we must wait and be patient. Others, everyone, have arrived, the ultimate. The truth is somewhere near? Gas station owners are already hinting that the price tag of fuel will increase, then the more expensive fuel will pull products and services. We recently fought with Belarus for the price of oil, I’ve already looked at it, but how else, how much it sagged. It turns out for the layman it will be like in the "Wedding in the Robin", the Reds will come rob, the White will come, also rob. Where to get to the peasant ..

      Yes, but in the case of the conclusion of an agreement on the supply of gas to Bulgaria, this connection was prudently removed, as if they knew that oil would collapse. winked

      That's right. But unfortunately only in Europe.
      In Russia, gas demand is much higher than supply. Therefore, probably the price is only growing here.

        From this we can conclude that lowering the price of fuel lies through multiplying by zero those who are "used to eating tasty and plentiful food."

      Firstly, I didn’t pay, but I received it, if I later converted it to something more stable or according to purchasing power.
      Secondly, your “wish” about 40% can be completely overfulfilled (because since the beginning of this year the ruble has already fallen in price by almost 30%) and pretty soon, well, until April 22, you will probably try to keep the course. hi

          Stores fined for retirees collecting arrears in trash bins

          In general, the delay cannot be thrown away, because pensioners are poisoned ..
          The fact is that outlets are obliged to get rid of delays in a certain way. - We break the packaging, sometimes fill the products with whiteness and throw them into garbage containers. Not those that are in the yards, but in their own, from where cars pick them up. Most often, these containers are locked, so that no one could get in there. We are forbidden to distribute expired products - everything must be disposed of, ”said the director of one of the Chelyabinsk store.
