Germany says Gazprom has found a way around the US sanctions against SP-2

Russian Gazprom has found a way to complete the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline without falling under US sanctions. According to the German publication Die Welt, now the United States will not be able to influence the situation.


Russia was able to pull the Akademik Chersky vessel, capable of laying pipes, out of American sanctions. In order to circumvent restrictive measures, the vessel, previously owned by Gazprom, was re-registered with the STIF fund in Russia (STIF, Samara Thermal Energy Property Fund), which allows the Russian company to complete the pipeline without being subject to sanctions. The change of ownership was announced on June 2 this year.

Recall that also in early June, the US Congress introduced a bill to expand restrictive measures against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. The document states that sanctions will be imposed not only against those who are building the gas pipeline itself, but will also provide them with assistance, including insurance and legal, as well as provide port services.

As Gazprom previously stated, Russia will complete the remaining section of the pipeline (about 130 km) on its own, with completion planned for the end of this year. According to experts, work on building a gas pipeline using the Akademik Chersky vessel may take several months.

        They would have applied something to themselves! They again have a peak of infections with "covid" - more than 33 thousand per day ... Then in 3-4 weeks the peak in fatalities will come ... They will continue to "steer" - instead of elections there will be a "state of emergency", and the WWII record will be beaten for the dead, or even all the wars taken together ...

What prevented us from selling engineering and high-tech products, the machinations of the West for twenty years? In the USSR, the share of raw materials in exports was much less than the share of the Russian Federation. Are you a manager of Rosneft or Gazprom?

                And Russia produces a lot of such products, which could compete in the global market? Mostly only weapons that we have always sold and are selling.
                In the USSR, the share of raw materials in exports was much less than the share of the Russian Federation

                Do you know what, to whom and at what price did the USSR sell? Almost for nothing, he supplied his products to the so-called countries. "people's democracy" and "socialist orientation". Do you want to feed the freeloaders again? At one time I saw enough of our equipment that was lying in the ditches and swamps of Guinea. What a fig for some "Papuan" to clean the carburetor or adjust the ignition, if this "ZIL" can be thrown away, and the good USSR will send it back.

                    I, unlike you, my young opponent, saw all this in reality. When our Zil-130 on which even the paint was not scratched, were, due to a slight malfunction, thrown into a ditch along the roads to Conakry. I saw our brand new An-2 and Mi-8 with a raid of less than 100 hours thrown into a swamp near the Guinean international airport "Gabbessia". No receipts are needed here. If all this equipment would be ours black knock .. dark-skinned "friends" for their hard-earned money, they would not treat her like that. And for free you can. hi

              In addition to the US sanctions on the way (160 km) of the gas pipeline, Denmark again intervened with its Wishlist formulated in Washington. That is why "Chersky" stands at the pier, loaded with pipes. The American bastard is striking in all directions just to prevent the end of SP-2, which is like a needle in an egg for American LNG.

            I share your grievance over what Mother Russia has to fill her budget with. But let's try to look at the "motherland's storeroom trade" shirshe.
            1. We will not sell to everyone who is hungry for oil or gas; we will sell to others. Wishing - like dogs uncut.
            2. In the global energy sector, the share of generation based on the combustion of hydrocarbons is gradually decreasing. Motor transport also does not stand still. How much time is left to live ICE and TPP: 30-50 years? Next is the drop in fuel demand.
            3. Recycling technology is already an integral part of our lives. Further, their use will only expand. This will also significantly reduce the demand for primary raw materials.

            I will not say 100% for the figures, but I guess that in 30 years the energy, transport and chemical industries will be very different from modern ones for us. Moving away from hydrocarbons will also be due to the fact that by then the world's oil will have significantly reduced. So if you sell, then sell now. Of course, part left to descendants. And most importantly - to dispose of the proceeds in the mind.

              That is, is it necessary to sell something? Maybe I'm behind the times, but I don’t understand this logic. Rather, it’s probably possible to explain it, but only this way: if we don’t sell something, we will have to work! And this is a problem, yes, but only for a certain social class - the oligarchs. Plus top officials affiliated with them.

        Why look for him ... this "pretext", here it is ... on the surface - the United States imposed sanctions, which also include prohibition of any work for the provision, service and maintenance of pipe laying.
        The second is with insurance .. the same issue is not resolved.
        Third, Akademik Chersky is equipped to lay pipes with a diameter of up to 32 inches; to work with the Nord Stream-2 pipe, it needs re-equipment to a diameter of up to 48 inches.
        And sanctions, including this apply to the conversion work.
        Fourth, Fortuna has an unequivocal ban on work in Danish waters.
        That's it ... offhand the existing "problems" are without pathos and fellow -kaniya.
        Maybe ... Gazprom and "... have an ace up their sleeve", but seeing the activities of this company for 20 years ... why 20? Yes, because gas used to cost a penny for us and therefore everything was good, but .... then suddenly gas became .. "national welfare" wassat and we started .. "problems".
        So the efficiency of Gazprom's managers has to be highly questioned. hi

      Re-registered .... stunned complex operation !!! And now what? Is this STIF that .... a fund not sanctioned in any way ... is it enchanted or what?
      How would an invisible hat?
      Build, deliver pipes, fuel, shift shifts.
      And finally learn the lesson that you need to have YOUR equipment for YOUR projects, and not rely on Uncle Sam’s cowardly vassals.

      This really surprises me ... so many times have Russia been hit by a face on a table in the last 20-25 years? I remember how Gref walked naked ... we’ll buy Opel, we ... yes, we don’t have enough underpants ...
      Bought ... caught up and a few more times ... bought lol

      And again, time after time ... these are our partners, we need to agree with them who, if not them, should be given contracts ...

      Another peremoga.
      During the oil crisis, in April, the State bought back Venezuelan assets from Rosneft. From all the irons it was reported that this is a very tricky plan to withdraw Rosneft from possible sanctions imposed by the United States. That supposedly against the state owning assets under sanctions, the United States will not take action.
      So what prevents the state from becoming the owner of Chersky and all other equipment to complete the construction?

    The document states that sanctions will be imposed not only against those who are building the gas pipeline itself, but will also provide them with assistance, including insurance and legal, as well as provide port services.


    But in fact, this shows us only one thing. What kind of system in technical execution you need to have. Politics, politics, treaties, treaties, friendship, friendship. But. It is necessary to build a system when under sanctions you can sail on your ship. Arrange the transportation of their pipes from their territory (stream). Put your floating dock in the middle of the sea or the ocean (I exaggerate, for fools), and do the job. Well this is a sketch. Subtleties for specialists. Expensive. I know. Doing nothing is even more expensive.

    One way to get around the 50% limit is to add hydrogen to the natural gas. This idea belongs to Royal Dutch Shell, one of five operators of Nord Stream 2 AG, along with ENGIE, OMV, Uniper and Wintershall.
    According to Medvedev, the addition of about 10% hydrogen to natural gas will lead to a reduction in atmospheric emissions to zero - from production to the final consumer. The idea of ​​such a blend fits perfectly with the logic of the Paris climate agreement. Moreover, the new mixture has good economic prospects and could become a topic for cooperation between Russia not only with Europe, but also with Japan, South Korea and even the United States, the representative of Gazprom noted.
