How abroad they reacted to the decision of the German authorities on Nord Stream-2: a few examples


The decision of the German authorities on the non-withdrawal of the Nord Stream-2 project from the requirements of the so-called “gas directive” of the EU is commented not only in Russia, but also abroad. Perhaps the greatest euphoria about this reigns in the circles of the Ukrainian authorities. So, the chairman of the Ukrainian government, Denis Shmygal, even congratulated Germany on such a decision.


According to Shmygal, the decision made by Berlin “shows allegiance to the uniform rules of the European Union”.

At the same time, in Germany itself, cries of irony are heard about the statement of the Ukrainian prime minister. It is noted that the government of a non-EU country "seems to be more aware of the existence of common EU rules than in the EU itself." It is added that, to put it mildly, it’s strange to talk about common EU rules at a time when even “Schengen” does not work.

Recall that the EU’s “gas directive” prescribes to reserve 50% of gas pipeline capacities to ensure “competitiveness”. European experts believe that, by and large, this rule is not fully operational, since “in case of urgent need” one company may be given more than 50% of the pipeline’s volume. It is noted that the economic crisis could be an important reason for the pipes of the same SP-2 to not be half empty (after the construction of the gas pipeline).

S&P Global, meanwhile, recalls that Nord Stream-2 has a month to appeal.

Meanwhile, Poland has once again stated that Nord Stream-2 “cannot have any privileges in the European energy market.” PGNiG claims that SP-2 "will pose a threat to the security of supplies and competition in the European gas market."

Of course, they welcomed the decision of the FRG authorities in the USA. But what about the very directive regarding American energy suppliers? If Europe cares so much about competition, then it’s worth extending its gas directive to American marine gas carriers transporting LNG to Europe. In turn, this means that tanker capacities should be filled with 50% of the gas of “alternative suppliers” - for example, LNG from Russia ... Or are they “undemocratic” to extend their EU directives to US gas carriers?

            Meanwhile, Poland has once again stated that Nord Stream-2 “cannot have any privileges in the European energy market.” PGNiG claims that SP-2 "will pose a threat to the security of supplies and competition in the European gas market."

            The fact of the matter is that the main gas supplier for SP-2 is precisely Russia and no one else!
            What are the pro-American henpecked Brussels and Washington doing?
            It is increasing the cost of Russian gas supplies to the EU by increasing the cost of its transportation due to the underestimation of SP-2 gas by 50%.
            Moreover, they require the Russian Federation to maintain a minimum price for Russian gas.
            Thus, gas exports to Europe are becoming more expensive for the Russian Federation — less than the cost of its production.
            This is an elementary CONSIDERATED and unnatural for "SP-2" Washington ousting Russia from the European gas market. Even when Russia feeds cheap gas to anti-Russian hostile Ukraine and Poland!

            All this is somewhat reminiscent of a non-aggression pact between the USSR and Nazi Germany before the German attack on the USSR in 1941.

              I wonder will submission be respected the requirements of the so-called EU Gas Directive in which the gas pipe from the country of the gas producer should not be more than 50%, regarding the Polish single pipeline with gas supplies from only one - Norway?

              It should be noted that Poland has also gathered and is planning to build a single-line underwater gas pipeline from Norway to Poland through Denmark. At the same time, gas through the Polish gas pipeline will also come from only one gas producing country - from Norway. As is the case with Russia.

              Let me remind you. Gas to SP-2 will come only from a producer from one country - Russia, since no other gas pipelines from other countries have been built to the SP-2 gas pipeline and it seems that they are not even supposed to be built.

              Thus, the extension of the EU "gas directive" under US pressure on such single-line gas pipelines between countries, provided that these pipelines should have no more than 50% of gas from one country of origin, [/ b] leads to technical absurdity and significantly reduces the profitability of such projects.

        If you think that since the Weimar Republic, you do not agree. The partition of Germany and Austria-Hungary after World War I occurred, but control by the 1th was already purely nominal. And in the 30s there was nothing to control in the destroyed country. Only reparation payments.
        Let them say anything today. The dog barks the wind wears. As a result, they will buy from this pipe. The main thing to complete and run. Any crisis reaches the bottom and goes into the growth phase. Good luck to the pipelayer.

          In a ruined country? In the twenties of the 20th century?
          As far as I remember the course of the First World War, almost all of the large-scale destruction was on the territory not of Germany, but of France, Belgium, Russia (Poland). So, that much could still be "controlled" in Germany.
          And the pipeline must be completed!

            You can do it easier. Fork the gas pipeline in the 12 mile zone and there will be 50% in each pipe. Only it is necessary to coordinate this with Germany.

            There is a practice of consensus and vetoing in the European Union. It will be uplifted on command from across the ocean, some kind of Estonia (in our case, Poland) will veto, Brussels will agree, the states will support, and the old European elite cannot do anything. It was not for this that the European Union was created so that certain countries such as Germany or France could pursue an independent policy. Everything should be under control. But under whose control, guess from three times.

            And the fact that this is a formalism to which everyone is ready to close their eyes is just an assumption and nothing more. The formalism was much simpler - the Germans simply could deduce it from the requirements of the directive, that's all.

        In addition, there Rosneft is trying to supply its gas to Europe. But Gazprom has not yet provided a pipe to them. And there is a reason to load the reserved capacity of the pipe with another supplier, so to speak. And the pipe will work at full capacity and the whole Russian will also have gas. So, it's a joy horses seems to me premature and not entirely justified.

                    Gazprom daily pays about $ 6 million to the operator of the Ukrainian gas transmission system through Naftogaz Ukrainy, and uses the gas transmission system for a maximum of $ 1,5 million. Based on the volume of 178 million cubic meters per day, transit is evenly distributed throughout the year, which is enough strange, since the supplier usually varies the volume of transit depending on the needs for certain periods (months, quarters ...). At the same time, Sergey Makogon specified that Gazprom would not be able to compensate for the “overpayment” by exceeding the transit of 178 million cubic meters on other days of the year: “Everything extra for a fee”.
                    Both sides agreed to maintain transit for five years with supplies of 65 billion cubic meters in 2020 and 40 billion each from 2021 to 2024. Transportation of 215 billion cubic meters will cost the Russian company $ 7,2 billion.

    Maybe. But all these discussions of the Nord Stream are not worth a damn.
    The main thing is that it be completed, then you can make other decisions.
    Yes, and you may not need to take them.
    For example, 50% of deliveries will be made by Gazprom, and 50% by Surgutneftegas or Lukoil or someone else. The main thing is that money should go to the Russian budget and Russian producers. Or sell Gazprom gas on the German border.
    In general, the main thing is that there is a pipe and demand, and you can always find an acceptable supply option.

    According to Shmygal, the decision made by Berlin “shows devotion to the uniform rules of the European Union”

But there is a more correct option - a gradual reduction in gas supply through the Ukrainian pipe in connection, for example, with the reconstruction of the system. That is, it is time to raise the question before the EU about the transfer of the flow into a new direction. They don’t want to, it’s not necessary to be particularly upset.

    That's right. The companies Nord Stream-1 and Nord Stream-2 Fill Opal 50 with 50. All conditions are met. What could be the claim repeat
    But it seems to me that Nord Stream 2 is being built not only to fill Opal. But also on the refusal of the Germans from nuclear energy. And electricity doesn’t care. Winter is cold or warm. German TPPs will consume gas with an enviable appetite

    I will say this flow will be through Ukraine as well (I wrote about it when everyone said that they would block it, they didn’t block it and they paid fines) and they’ll do it somewhere else because the main goal of the enemy is to pump resources from our country on what conditions is the tenth thing you see there is no tendency to reduce the pumping out of the country there are no resources and that’s all And there is no need for any evidence of wrecking, it's just a fact Sale of the national treasure It's not temporary) When it is finished, will be on the ruins, and these ruins the greatest value will be vodka (natural end) Here then is a universal howl yes how is it! It will be too late for the current. How will children and grandchildren be plowed up so that the country would be raised without resources? Maybe even one of us will have to find this "hell"

So they’re doing it in conjunction with the locals so that our people would think that they are against it and in fact pumping volumes are only growing (the coronavirus really slowed down but this is a different story) Type- “don’t throw me into the thorn bush” From here, by the way, there’s a dissonance when on the news one thing and in fact what you see around you, wow! And in general, where do the Americans exactly mean? -There is an international mafia And you would think that the American farmer John really doesn’t even know where Russia is involved in this (although if he cuts off the resource robbery, he certainly knows, because he will be sent to take them by force) Americans like ayahay - “bad” Germans- “good” then vice versa Or before that (it doesn’t matter And the resource is coming) Then they will arrange a brawl if they change a bad cop for a good one and continue to pump it out That's all "What are the evidence? "Yes me from the first school class taught that selling the national treasure for the hill is the last thing and you probably just as well Say just neither I personally nor you can change anything But to be mistaken, why ???

          Everyone sells what he has. If you do not sell today what is urgently needed today, then tomorrow no one will need it. An example of this is coal.

      after the creation of such a company, the rest is not necessary, an auction is held to reserve capacities, this company buys these capacities and ... the EU standards are met - the pipe has one owner of gas for another - Tour. the flow through Bulgaria and further at auctions was bought by Gazprom, the Poles at the same auction have already bought the capacities of their gas pipeline ... there are other options ... wait and see ....

      You can simply make an exception in our law for JV 2, and Gazprom does not buy gas from our own producing companies, but let them into the pipe themselves.

    This is politics, the main thing now is a lot of things being declared, if only they would not interfere with the construction of the pipe, and there the German business will stifle its politicians so that they adopt the correct laws and certainly the Germans will not be interested in whether their solution will cause the problem in Ukraine or not, their own shirt closer to the body.

    The problem of SP-2 is not Gazprom’s desire to lose its monopoly. "Gazprom may give access to SP-2 to other Russian companies - for example, Rosneft and Novatek." Jointly independent Russian suppliers could provide the second 50% of the gas pipeline filling, formally fulfilling EU requirements. And that would be all that the same is Russian natural gas, which they are now forced to sell to Gazprom. Of course, in this case it will lose its monopoly, but the domestic gas industry will only benefit from such a reform ”

      It is not the owner of the gas, but the pipe. For some reason, our government does not want to create a separate gas transportation company, as it did for oil, by creating Transneft.

    Recall that the EU’s “gas directive” prescribes to reserve 50% of gas pipeline capacities to ensure “competitiveness”.

      Maybe even earlier - in May gas transit through Poland ceases and only short-term contracts are in effect. Let’s see how the Germans will compensate for shortages of gas (about 16 billion), and then it will become clear how they will fight for SP-1 and SP-2.

    Of course, they welcomed the decision of the FRG authorities in the USA. But what about the very directive regarding American energy suppliers? If Europe cares so much about competition, then it’s worth extending its gas directive to American marine gas carriers transporting LNG to Europe. In turn, this means that tankers should be filled with 50% of the gas of “alternative suppliers” - for example, LNG from Russia ... Or, for American gas carriers, their directives in the EU should be “undemocratic”?

    Here the author is cunning !!! Gas carriers do not belong American companies producing gas! Everyone can hire them to transport their gas!

        Mr. Krutikhin here all of us for fools who are not able to find anything holding on the net. Throughout his speech, he led us to the idea that the northern stream was conceived to punish Ukraine and drank the budget with Putin’s friends. But only preparations for the construction began in 97, Yeltsin was at the helm, until the famous "I was tired" for another two years, gas went through the pipeline in 2012, to Maidan even more than a year. Why lie then?
        He also says that for Germany this is a freebie, but Gazprom has only 51%, the rest is foreign, including and German corporations. Where is there a freebie?
        After such an impudent manipulation, you start to think, but in general did he even say a word of truth?
        It seems that Mr. Krutikhin, along with a journalist, is fulfilling someone’s order.

    I wonder will submission be respected the requirements of the so-called EU Gas Directive in which the gas pipe from the country of the gas producer should not be more than 50%, regarding the Polish single pipeline with gas supplies from only one - Norway?

    It should be noted that Poland has also gathered and is planning to build a single-line underwater gas pipeline from Norway to Poland through Denmark. At the same time, gas through the Polish gas pipeline will also come from only one gas producing country - from Norway. As is the case with Russia.

    Let me remind you. Gas to SP-2 will come only from a producer from one country - Russia, since no other gas pipelines from other countries have been built to the SP-2 gas pipeline and it seems that they are not even supposed to be built.

    Thus, the extension of the EU "gas directive" under US pressure on such single-line gas pipelines between countries, provided that these pipelines should have no more than 50% of gas from one country of origin, [/ b] leads to technical absurdity and significantly reduces the profitability of such projects.

    I think that a sudden accident at the Ukrainian transit gas pipeline will make all restrictions an empty gap.

    In an extreme case, the laying company will be created and will occupy the missing volume with Gazprom gas using the long-tried territories Absurdistan method - they will pump it through the Republic of Belarus and call it Belarusian gas. But most likely, Germany simply sneezes once again on “European solidarity” and recalls that this concept was bought for German money, therefore German music is needed to play.
