Germany allowed the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in its waters

Germany allowed to continue laying the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the exclusive economic zone. This is stated in a message posted on the official portal of the Federal Office for Shipping and Hydrography (BSH).


As follows from the BSH message, the work will be carried out on a 2 km long section by a pipe-laying vessel with anchor positioning, i.e. barge "Fortuna", which was already laying pipes on the German section. The work was suspended due to German environmentalists and a non-governmental environmental organization (NABU). However, the operator company Nord Stream 2 has a permanent permit for the pipeline, which was obtained back in 2018.

Meanwhile, the German consul in Yekaterinburg, Mathias Kruse, said that Nord Stream 2 will be completed, the German government proceeds from the assumption that the gas pipeline will be put into operation and fully supports the project. According to him, to complete the construction, it remains to lay about 80 km of pipes, but perhaps less, since there is no exact information.

In turn, Washington continues to assert that Nord Stream 2 is a "bad project." This was stated by the press secretary of the White House Jen Psaki. Despite this, the State Department does not rule out that the issue of building a gas pipeline may be discussed at a meeting between the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of Russia and the United States, Sergei Lavrov and Anthony Blinken.

The very fact that the US is discussing the project, instead of threatening with more sanctions, may indicate that Washington has already come to terms with the completion of Nord Stream 2. The United States does not want to spoil relations with Germany, but it does not intend to let Russia go just like that. It is possible that in the negotiations, Blinken will try to get concessions from Russia in other areas in response to the completion of the project.

    For the USA, yes.
    The German government assumes that the pipeline will be commissioned and fully supports the project.
    For Germany, no.

      "Yes" and "no" do not say, the United States and Germany do not believe.
      That's when we finish building the SP-2 and put it into operation, then we'll see if it was worth it.
      According to the latest data, the EU is preparing a new law to collect "taxes" from suppliers of energy raw materials, wishing to once again profit for dorm, incl. and at the expense of Russia.

        If an additional tax is introduced on "suppliers of energy raw materials", then these suppliers will simply raise their prices. Only consumers will suffer from such a tax. Gazprom will only benefit.

          Have you heard anything about the modern oil and gas pricing system? Consumers of Russian raw materials suffer greatly from it?

          I am sure that the "civilized" world is already smoking with brains over how to rip off additional raw materials from suppliers and at the same time not pay more. So far Russia is not a legislator in this area and there is no certainty that it will be so.

            Dear Credo, I have heard about the oil and gas pricing system - I have worked at Rosneft for about 10 years.
            Russia is not a legislator in pricing issues. But it can even influence him.
            The gas storage facilities of the EU countries are very empty. And Gazprom does not react to all the requests of the EU countries to increase gas supplies, although it could increase supplies quite significantly. As a result, gas prices will skyrocket in the fall.
            The "civilized" world can smoke with brains as much as it wants, but there will still be a shortage of gas in the EU, and the price for it will grow.
            Russia, on the other hand, can compensate for the decline in gas supplies to the EU by supplying LNG to China, Japan and South Korea.

              And Russia has made a lot of money on gas, selling it at a price tied to the price of oil, products from which in Russia are constantly becoming more expensive, despite the fact that they are made from Russian oil.

        And what do the older comrades think about this topic ...
        For the first time, Cheniere, the largest liquefied natural gas producer in the United States, has assessed the potential impact on the global LNG industry if companies have to pay for greenhouse gas emissions. If the radical scenario is implemented, in which the cost of CO2 emissions will rise to $ 140 per ton, the operating costs of existing projects will double. Projects in the United States from this point of view will be in the most vulnerable position ... So, in the case of projects in Qatar and Russia, where operating costs excluding capital costs are $ 1,5-2 per MBTU, they can grow to $ 4. For American projects, operating costs can increase from $ 4 to $ 8 per MBTU ... https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4770518

    A long-term transit contract with a fixed volume of pumping with Ukraine will be extorted by Blinkom. All transits go to the Baltic, bypassing the Balts, Poles, Czechs and other regions.

      Such a contract will not work for the Outskirts. When the construction was slowed down and the arms were twisted, they had to sign. But the contract will end, and with the SP-2 operating, why sign a new transit with the Outskirts.

        After the end of the Yulia contract, there is a contract for a year. Those. the year has ended, the contract has ended, and so every year. In addition to the transit dough, there is a loss of jobs involved in the industry. A bunch of subcontractors and even more services and their family members. Therefore, when svidomye say, they say, think, several billion ... then the real picture is terrible. And besides the square, the blow to the Hungarians and Czecho-Slovaks is even farther. Also SP-2 kills and Polish transit. All these parasites will need to be fed to new owners.

          They are happy to calculate the transit fee, but the transit country also incurs costs (buying gas for the operation of compressors, salaries, spare parts ...) and in the end ...
          The direct benefit of Ukraine from fulfilling the provisions of the gas transit contract with Russia in 2020 amounted to $ 0,5 billion, according to the Ukrainian National Bank.

      He needs gas even in the heat. In hot weather, electricity consumption grows for air conditioners, and power plants are also converted to gas from coal.

    The latest news on stream 2, Fortuna has a strict deadline for the completion of construction on June 10, they will not have time to impose a 10% sanction on wages for all those associated with Fortuna. With Chersky until July 1, everyone will not have time to grief. Cherskry has a problem, the positioning system gives an error "two bast shoes on the map", which is not acceptable for him. The whole color of IT specialists in Russia is struggling with this problem. The equipment is imported, it can be anything, even an external influence. straight line.

    According to the latest data, the EU is preparing a new law to collect "taxes" from suppliers of energy raw materials, wishing to once again profit for dorm, incl. and at the expense of Russia.

    - Russia will pay from 2 to 5 billion euros a year to the EU budgets in order to have the right to trade in Europe.
    When we entered the Paris Agreement, I remember my debates with WWF and other structures. All of them said: “But in the Paris Agreement there is not a word about any payments. Let's just go in and that's it. " Several years passed, and they started talking about payments, and now everyone was fussing.
    The trick here is that, according to international recommendations, only a growing and managed forest has absorptive capacity. And it is not a fact that Russian forests possess such characteristics, they believe in the West.
    Some Brazilian forests, for example, are already being proposed to be deprived of the status of absorbing ones and transferred to the status of emitters of CO2. UN international experts have suggested that the giant old forest around the city of Manaus should be considered a carbon dioxide producer, not a sink.
    Tomorrow they will calculate the same for you in the taiga. You consider the taiga "the lungs of the planet", but you will be calculated that the taiga is an emitter of methane. There is a rotting forest in which dead wood rotting, you do not manage it, there is no felling, plus fires - then the topic of fires will begin, and then even more so. In case of fires, combustion occurs, CO2 is formed, there are no questions here.
    European business has recently begun to shout: “Why do we pay, but they don’t? Now take it from everyone, including the Russians. "

    In fact, given the existence of several lobbying systems in the space around the European Commission from an open one (you can start from here - https://www.corporateeurope.org/, https://www.lobbycontrol.de/ - a database for them https: // lobbyfacts.eu/), it is clear that it is closed as everywhere else. It would be easy to force the "norms", to lay Easter eggs in the normative, as we have inside love and know how with a budget of a billion Euros, for example, it would be easy, at the same time they would solve some other tasks ... well, after the fight, as they say, don't wave.

    They live in an illusory world ... laughing This is protectionism and violation of the WTO rules. Now the economy of Evosiopa is dying and therefore they will resort to any restrictive measures, regardless of their legitimacy, in order to prolong their agony.

    But, as you know, before you die you will not get enough breath.

    We are witnessing the death of Evosiopa in its current form, followed by a series of civil wars, followed by the reorganization of states, redrawing of borders and the establishment of new orders. Many of the current state formations will disappear from the world map.
