Named the amount of damage from US sanctions against Nord Stream 2

83

Nord Stream 2 AG has calculated the damage caused to the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline by new US sanctions. Under the blow of sanctions - investments of partners and investments in the energy infrastructure of Europe.


According to Nord Stream 2 AG, the sanctions will block € 700 million in direct investment in the completion of the SP-2 project. In addition, the investment of € 12 billion allocated by European companies to the energy infrastructure of the EU will be in jeopardy. Of this amount, 8 billion euros are for Nord Stream-2.

US sanctions will affect the interests of nearly 120 companies from 12 European countries. That is, it is not only about Russia's damage, but also about the problems for the European economy, including the forced costs of gas purchases at higher prices. However, this is precisely what the American leadership is seeking.

The point of opposing the construction of Nord Stream-2, as you know, is to provide advantages for the sale of American liquefied natural gas to European countries. It is much more expensive than Russian “pipeline” gas (about a third), but European countries may be forced to buy it because of the political and economic blackmail of the United States.

Recall that the US Senate introduced additional sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline and companies associated with its construction in the national defense budget of the American state. This maneuver is used so that the US president (even if he had such a desire) could not "veto" the sanctions. According to US senators, the gas pipeline is an “energy weapon Russia ”and its launch must be prevented by any means in order to exclude the strengthening of Moscow’s economic and political influence in Europe.

      And is that all you want? Yes, it’s just sadomasochism and this desire will strike you even more than the tops.
      I would like for the countries of Europe to find strength within themselves and join in the desire to repulse the United States in their exorbitant arrogance and greed, until Europe slides to the level of Ukraine.

            In one of his speeches, E. Primakov said: “Well, as for Merkel, she is not durable either. And then, in the end, it will be clear why she turned 180 degrees and took such a position. It seems to me that they will get to the bottom of this matter. ".

            Yes, Trump is simply fed up with Europe, who wants to sit on this and eat this. If Europe is afraid of Russia and the country is in NATO, then contribute 2%; if you are not afraid of Russia, then leave NATO! Everything is very simple! But European countries say with a herring that we are afraid of Russia and want to stay in NATO, while they buy gas from the “enemy” and help it, Russia, earn money, and do not want to defend against it by contributing 2% to NATO. Here Trump and freaked out! Simple oil painting ...!

    One question is always tormented by why the US sanctions are effective, they bring results, the sanctions announced by Russia do not work at all or initially work. We are a world power, the fifth economy in the world .. Careful guys. Our sanctions do not apply to anyone, only to our brother in a quilted jacket.

      The problem is how these sanctions are presented, the Americans impose sanctions, and we impose sanctions ...
      So it turns out that introducing sanctions to the place where we impose them is much more productive.

      Of course, ours is still studying and studying, but to assert that the response of Russia does not affect anyone but their own, this is not unequivocal.
      There are many reasons, shortcomings, and simply ignoring by "responsible business" officials, the interests of their country, this is a fact ... but this is already a question for the leadership "Did you really impose sanctions or is it still flirting with foreign countries, in the performance of your selfish interests"? ?? Muti a lot, very much.

      The problems with Russia's sanctions are that they are more verbal. They introduce against us, we suffer. We introduce against someone, we also suffer. request It's all about the economy and the market is ..

    LNG is good, but in peacetime. And for some reason, the submarines walk along the routes of tankers.
    But in principle, the economic policy of selling real values ​​for promises, which in addition are given on credit to the buyer, is the insanity of pure water. The horizons of people investing billions in the unknown can not be described.

        Sanctions expand, but soften. A bill to clarify sanctions against Nord Stream-2 has been submitted to Congress
        The presence of a parallel project does not mean discord in the ranks of American politicians


        Washington, June 26 - IA Neftegaz.RU. Nine US congressmen from both parties (including A. Kinzinger, D. Heck, M. Turner, and R. Gallego) submitted a new bill to clarify sanctions on the Nord Stream-9 gas pipeline (IHP) to mitigate them .
        The document was published on the website of the US Parliament.

        An alternative version of the bill on the same subject was introduced by a group of senators in early June 2020.
        Moreover, the mere presence of a parallel project does not at all mean disagreement in the ranks of American politicians, on the contrary, as a rule, this indicates a consensus in both houses on the need to adopt a document.
        However, a compromise version has yet to be agreed.

        The Devil in Detail
        Although the bills are called the same, there are significant differences between them:
        the new document does not contain the most severe and sensitive restrictions that are proposed in the earlier draft of Senators T. Cruz and D. Sheikhin (this allows us to hope that the final inter-chamber bill will be softer than the Senate version);
        the new document proposes to expand the scope of potential sanctions from vessels that lay pipes at a depth of 100 feet (30,5 m) for the Nord Stream-2 or Turkish Stream gas pipelines to vessels that are “engaged in pipe-laying activities” at the same depth (this the activity involves the preparation of a laying site, digging trenches for pipes, land surveying, filling stones, bending and welding pipes);
        sanctions under the new version of the bill may affect foreign individuals, companies and their managers who provide services for underwriting, insurance or reinsurance of ships involved in the laying of the gas pipeline;
        restrictions may also apply to service providers and equipment for “modernization or installation of welding equipment, modification or retrofitting of ships”;
        The new document does not contain restrictions on those who provide services for testing, inspection and certification of the gas pipeline, without which the gas pipeline cannot be commissioned to Gazprom.
        The Senate bill provides for retroactive entry into force from December 2019.
        The parallel bill of the chamber does not have such a clause, and if it is approved, then only those companies that continued to provide these services as of the date of adoption of the bill would fall under it.

        Sanctions that are always for the good of America and to all who are with America
        In May 2019, senators T. Cruz, D. Shahin and D. Barrasso drafted Bill S.1441 on the protection of European energy security, which provides for sanctions against pipe-laying vessels building the Nord Stream-2 IHL.

        The bill, supported by the Committee on Foreign Relations, was signed by D. Trump as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, NDAA for fiscal year 2020, starting on October 1, 2020.
        Ships - Allseas pipelayers left the project, leaving the pipeline unfinished.

        It was reported that preparations were underway to resume construction, but For more than a month, KMTUS Akademik Chersky and the pipe-laying barge (TUB) Fortuna are sadly standing in the port of Mukran in Germany.

    This is an ideal US strategy. They will first make the pipeline go a penny to us, which would be as costly as possible. And when we bring and scream Hurray, then either the price will be lowered or banned. Trump skillfully grazes our herd of sheep in the government and Gazprom.

    Everyone is so surprised ....
    It’s as if it’s impossible to get country’s permission in advance to lay a gas pipeline, conclude agreements, register penalties, attract lawyers and lobbyists ....
    the sums are rather big, every country wants to cut a piece of itself from these billions ..... Not a single millionaire will be superfluous ...... (look like Lukashenko is fighting for the price - every fact is the basis for pressure)

    And it seems that Gazprom has everything at random, almost everywhere a court loss .... well, all the gold VIPs, and the Ex-President himself was the Director ....

    The Americans understand this, as well as the fact that subsequent sanctions are unlikely to help stop the Russian project. US desperate attempts to stop the Russians look like dying cramps on the European gas market. And all because SP-2 will make Washington a good competition, and in the framework of market trade this, in general, is normal. But not for the USA, which planned to seize the gas market in Europe, but here some Russians confused their plans. laughing

    Gas is not only a burner in gas stoves and electricity with heat.

    This is a HUGE petrochem, which is already very well developed in Germany. And if Amer’s LNG is at least fit for burning, with stretch marks, then for Neftekhim it’s just slag because of the unstable composition.

    The Germans will push their horn; they need gas like air laughing

    So many words about the losses of European companies, which every cheer patriot cares about as relatives, and not a word about the losses of the Russian side.
    However, sanctions only help us, this has long been known.

    The idea of ​​opposing the construction of Nord Stream-2, as you know, is to provide advantages for the sale of American liquefied natural gas to European countries

    There is no point in selling American gas, but in inflicting a loss to Russia and, even better, forcing Russia to pump their gas through Ukraine. The economic strangulation of Russia-in the whole smysl.
    If the United States wanted, they could force the Europeans to buy only their gas, but they want to stop the sale of only Russian gas.
    There is only one return move for Russia - create a new second world market competitor coexisting where the US rules. And they will attract more and more states from the American to their own market.

      Not a new market, but a European united bank sovereign from the USA. Here money rules the world. There will be such a bank, there will be laws. Countries will be able to transfer their funds as they want, without looking back.
      But I am afraid that without the USA, such an international bank cannot be created. After all, there are economic coalitions with America. The case comes from the doc. Film when a Swiss bank gave Finn to Hitler. funds (just accounts) of Czechoslovakia. All the grannies of this country in this bank. All. After that, the country was gone.
      __ And yet, Gazprom doesn’t sit dumb and international law smokes normally. Current all these payments / penalties can play an unknown role to us, that of course they will not tell us what is bought.

    Cash losses have been calculated. But the political harm, damage to Russian interests in the world, the Russian economy and every citizen of Russia, moral damage in the end, who will count this? When did this "construction of the century" begin again, did they not listen to intelligence? We could not compare the "disparate reports", the facts obtained from different sources. They believed the Germans - our worst enemies in Europe. Or, perhaps, that memorable "standing up" in the State Duma in front of the American senators explains everything? Did they rely on the common sense of American figures of "knife and ax, romantics from the high road"? You can only shrug your shoulders and write off all losses, hoping that "there will be a holiday on our street too."
