The American press told who "annoyed" the construction of the pipeline "Nord Stream-2"

33

The American news agency Bloomberg decided to provide material with explanations about what the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline is and why they are so afraid of putting it into operation in the West. The authors of the material note that the United States of America was involved in the process.


At the same time, it was rightly noted that such a situation developed not only because Washington “did not want to see Germany hostage to Russia,” but also because of the desire of the United States itself to sell more gas on European markets. At the same time, the American "blue fuel" in Bloomberg was called the "gas of freedom", enclosed in quotation marks.

It is said that to counter the implementation of the SP-2 project, US senators offer new and new sanctions. Recall that one of the measures under consideration is sanctions against Nord Stream-2 insurers.

The article asks the following question: “Who else (besides the USA. - Approx.”) Is annoyed by the construction of the gas pipeline? ” The answer from Bloomberg is: Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine. The authors explain this by the fact that these countries, when putting SP-2 into operation, risk losing the transit of Russian gas, which will cause them obvious economic damage. The greatest losses in this regard may be suffered by Ukraine.

The material notes that the US in the current situation in any case will not be able to provide Europe with its gas. It is added that for transportation of gas from the USA it is necessary to liquefy it, which leads to additional costs. Russia, on the other hand, traditionally supplies the bulk of its gas to the European market through gas pipelines, which is simply cheaper for Europe itself.

    In any case, the United States will not be able to supply Europe with its gas.

    Anyway, the Sheriff doesn’t care, but let the “Indians” mumble, but quietly, quietly.

      The goal is to raise the cost of gas for us and, ideally, to reduce the amount of currency from gas from Europe. That the pipe would be built, and there was little gas there.

        Economic pressure \ restrictions. This is now the most affordable, effective weapon against everyone who can send a sick response to a military threat / hitting.
        After all, everything is logical, especially since the method is not new, tested for centuries!

          The European market is big gas, but very regulated (they say steeper, only India). A big plus that they did the Force of Siberia and part of the gas, if that, can go to China. It seems to me that at this stage (after SP-2) you need to finish with pipes and invest money in SG. And if anyone needs a pipe, let them build it themselves.

              If towards Europe then yes ...
              And then, on the one hand, the natural gas processing and liquefaction complex in Ust-Luga
              Annually, the complex will process 45 billion cubic meters. m of gas, about 13 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG), up to 3,8 million tons of ethane fraction, up to 2,4 million tons of liquefied hydrocarbon gases (LPG) and 0,2 million tons of pentane-hexane fraction are produced. ... The timing of putting the enterprises into operation is synchronized: the first phases - in the IV quarter of 2023, the second phases - in the IV quarter of 2024. https://tass.ru/ekonomika/6526615
              On the other hand - Currently, there are six LNG plants in the USA - Sabine Pass, Cove Point, Corpus Christi, Cameron, Elba Island and Freeport, the total capacity of which currently reaches 55 million tons per year. By the end of the year, it is expected to launch one new line at Cameron (4,5 million tons) and three at Elba Island (0,75 million), which will bring the total capacity of American LNG plants to 60 million tons. However, in 2021, it is expected to commission only one new line - at Corpus Christi at 4,5 million tons. As for 2022, formally Venture Global in 2019 made an investment decision on the Calcasieu Pass project for 10 million tons, which should be launched at the end of 2022. However, given the market situation, the deadlines may be rescheduled. Moreover, according to a Platts Analytics review, it is highly likely that in the next five to six years no new North American LNG project will be able to make an investment decision, given the long period of low gas prices in the world and the difficulty of concluding long-term contracts. “We think that this forecast is likely to come true,” said Ross LNG chief analyst at https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4391003
              And how life will turn - we will see ...

              Until the first major gas carrier accident at a terminal, or at a port in a collision with another large ship. Then, in Europe, with its population density, many turnips will be combed out when the fire starts to extinguish.

            The Power of Siberia has its own resource base, and the SP-1 and SP-2 have their own. There are no "jumpers" between them, so European gas volumes cannot be thrown to China.

            During the construction of the Power of Siberia, China funded 50% of not only the cost of the pipeline, but also the Amur Gas Processing Plant, by the way, the largest in the world. In addition to gas to China, this plant produces about 30% of all helium, which is used in the world, and ethane for the production of 2,5 million tons per year of polyethylene in the Russian Federation.
            The Power of Siberia project is very profitable for Russia. The payback period of the project is only 4,5 years.
            At the same time, all the neighborhoods were gasified.

          For now:
          "Chesapeake Energy, a pioneer in shale oil production and one of the largest in its field, went bankrupt in the United States. This is not the first high-profile bankruptcy and certainly not the last. Analysts predict that at current energy prices, about a third of all shale production in the US is unprofitable. Especially the gas sector is suffering heavy losses: amid falling fuel prices and oversaturation of markets, Europe is massively refusing to supply American liquefied gas under already concluded contracts.

      Do you think the state does not know what to do? They tried against sanctions against the owner of Chersky and Fortuna (Gazprom) - they urgently “sold” them attention: to some "Samara Thermal Energy Property Fund" (STIF), what a bench from all these American sanctions - to put it mildly, "it’s neither cold nor hot," because they do not work for export, they don’t have accounts and property abroad ..... wassat A classic example of a fictitious transaction .....

      There are enough insurance companies in Russia, and our pipe-laying ships have insurance. But the Danish authorities, at the prompt of the "partners", demanded that the insurance company be European, not Russian.

    When did the States worry that something, as a result of their activities, became more expensive for someone? The silence around the construction site is very alarming. There is no decision? And already half a year has passed, it is absolutely important to complete the gas pipeline! This is precisely the diversification for our country.

    At the same time, it has been rightly noted that this situation has developed not only because Washington “does not want to see Germany hostage to Russia,” but also because of the desire of the United States to sell more gas on European markets.

    I see a few more aspects of the problem. The USA really does not want greater independence of both the EU as a whole and Germany in particular. The ability to receive fuel in another way weakens the economic stranglehold on European countries by the United States. Moreover, Russia has always spoken “FOR” alternative ways of supplying gas. Here the main trump card is the price of Russian gas.
    Developed economies, independent of the bonded alliances, can also claim back their gold bullions from Fort Knox.
    As for Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, and the other Baltic countries, excommunication from a freebie causes them bouts of anger, streams of bile and rabies. Transit - in transit, and tobacco separately.

      Qatar does not have this for long. The cost of producing LNG in Qatar is 30% higher than in Yamal. Nothing personal - just the climate.
      In addition, the shoulder from Qatar to Europe and to China is much longer than from Yamal.
      Qatar is on the verge of ruin. A couple of years of low prices for LNG, and Qatar krants.

    Importer - a party to international economic relations, buying goods, services, labor, capital, other items of international trade abroad, and importing them into the country for use and consumption. A gas importer buys gas and brings it into the territory of his country.
    The main countries exporters of natural gas:
    -Russia
    -Norway
    -Canada
    -Qatar
    -Algeria
    -The Netherlands.
    Main countries importers of natural gas:
    -Japan
    -Germany
    -Italy
    -USA
    -France
    -Great Britain.
