German Finance Minister: The outcome of the inspection of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline for compliance with EU legislation is not a foregone conclusion

114

German Finance Minister and leader of the German "Free Democrats" Christian Lindner argues that the delay in commissioning the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is not due to political reasons. According to him, the delay is due solely to legal procedures.


The head of the German Ministry of Finance told about this in an interview with the German newspaper WAZ.

He explained that now the Federal Network Agency is considering the legal aspects of the issue. At the same time, the outcome of the inspection of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline for compliance with EU legislation and German legal norms is not a foregone conclusion.

In parallel with this, technicians are checking how efficient the new gas pipeline is. And while there are no results of this check, it is impossible to predict what they will show, as the German minister said.

Lindner is confident that the issuance of permission to launch Nord Stream 2 is not used by Germany and the European Union as a lever of pressure on the policy of the Russian Federation.

The inconsistency of the trans-Baltic pipeline with European legal norms was discussed this week by the new German foreign minister, Annalena Berbock. In her opinion, such a discrepancy could lead to a refusal to launch Nord Stream-2. According to her, in order to successfully certify the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, he must create a subsidiary in Germany, in charge of the German part of the facility. In the meantime, the certification of the gas pipeline is being slowed down, gas prices in Europe are again surpassing the $ 1700 per thousand cubic meter mark.

    Christian Liedner, go sign on the payroll, with such statements you give a Christmas present of $ 2000 on the spot. The Chinese giggle, the higher the price of gas in Europe, the more competitive China is. They do not have such a wild social network.

      The newly minted German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock is a pro-American, pro-English "sorosikh" - a feud against the German people themselves!

      This pro-American, pro-English enemy of the German people Annalena Berbock is purposefully destroying and politically weakening Germany as a pillar of the existence of Germany and the entire European Union!

                  Therefore, countries need to think strategically in advance about the presence of allies in the war and tactically take care of their presence. And then how will it come out.

                  In this regard, Russia should not neglect Germany. It is also necessary to fight for the loyalty of the FRG to Russia.

            Since Germany is dependent on the United States, it is forced to pretend that it obeys them, to drag out for the certification of the SP-2. In this situation, the patient will win. And for us from delaying certification, only a bonus-price increase.

            The feminist "Soroshea" Annalena Belbock is motivated in Germany not so much by the launch of SP-2 and Russian gas, as by her pro-English, pro-American Russophobia in Germany and the European Union.

            REFERENCE
            Annalena Berbock is mute. Date of birth December 15, 1980 1980-12-15 (40 years old). Place of birth Hannover Germany

            - In 2000-2004, she studied political science and public law at the University of Hamburg.
            - In 2005 she received a master's degree in public international law London School of Economics (LSE).
            - In the year 2005 completed an internship at the British Institute for International and Comparative Law (BIICL.
            - In 2005-2008 she worked in the office of Elisabeth Schroedter [ru] in the European Parliament.

            - Since 2020, Berbock has been participating in the Young Leaders Program of the World Economic Forum.

            Position regarding citizens of homosexual orientation
            The Green Party was the first to include homosexuality on the agenda of the Bundestag since the 1980s. Their first delegate with an officially recognized homosexual orientation was Herbert Rouche. Later they were Jutta-Osterde-Schwerin, Christina Schenk, Volker Beck.

            The party’s first success in protecting the rights of sexual minorities was the permission to use the terms “lesbian” and “gay” (German Schwul) in print media and on the agenda of the German Bundestag. Prior to that, these concepts should not have been used in parliament, despite the fact that many deputies openly identified themselves as homosexuals. Subsequently, these concepts were replaced by more formal ones in German, but after much debate, the words "lesbian" and "gay" were allowed to be used officially as well.

        You don’t understand the situation a little, Germany has a long-term contract and it buys with surplus gas in the same spot market. So Annalena can simply voice what the German speculators tell her, and they don’t care about those who buy gas on the spot at exorbitant prices.

      There will be no increase in gas prices. Long-term export gas contracts (DSEGC) have been concluded, which provide for fixed contract prices or their periodic indexation.
      If we don’t sell gas to Europe, it’s not China that will benefit, but the Norwegians, Arabs and Americans.
      The price tag for gas is not set as if it falls on the soul, sales go to the NBP hub, something like a gas exchange. Gas prices for Europe at the NBP hub began to be calculated at the end of 1996.
      Briefly speaking. Using such tools, the Europeans simply twist our hands, and even such grandmas piled into the construction of the SP-2, an unpleasant situation arose when it might not be needed by anyone.

        the long-term gas price is calculated from the formula 70% exchange price + 30% oil price.
        That is why Moldova and Serbia have been negotiating for so long and knocking out discounts on gas.

                Five European energy companies - Gazprom's partners in the Nord Stream 2 project - have already invested almost a billion euros in its implementation, that is, almost the entire capital budget for the project in the amount of € 8 billion has already been invested. TASS was informed about this by the official representative of the company - the operator of the Nord Stream 2 AG project.


                Europeans invested five out of eight. Note, not borrowers, but partners.

        Everything is simple. Another "dizziness with success." 10 years ago, it was about the same. Moron jokes "maybe they write you gas" and expectation, the bourgeoisies are about to creep on their knees. Result. Prosecutors are monitoring the prices for gruel in stores and concern about the rise in prices for borscht set. That is, the cheapest vegetables. That's all the success.
        Well, in general. It's so funny to watch how, on the one hand, the patriots are amicably opposing NATA, on the other, they are just as unanimously indignant that the damned NATA does not allow the pipe to start, so that the bowels of their beloved homeland can be sold to NATO better and faster ...
        Citizens are patriots. Trust me. No one, neither in Ukraine, nor, moreover, in the EU, will freeze. But a carrot from a patriotic borscht set, against the background of a difficult international situation, may disappear;) Or Gazprom, once again, will be fined: D

            There is a document from 1986 - according to it, for the entire period of gasification of the USSR, only 6% of rural settlements of the USSR were gasified.
            For 30 years, 24% have been gasified in the Russian Federation - this is differently more than during the people's USSR - when the pipe was happily dragged to NATO in Germany in the midst of the Cold War past their villages and villages ...

                Since the beginning of gasification in the late 60s, many rural settlements in the USSR also disappeared by 1986
                For example, 2 villages in the region died in the 1970s. Near Gorky I saw a village dying on a conscription basis - they helped the old people to be loaded every day. I started serving 2 streets - they left for the unit after training six months later - with 10 houses left inhabited

              NATO, in contrast to the locals, who had enough candy wrappers and a certificate of honor at the end of the quarter, paid in hard currency (freely convertible currency). Exactly for the same reason, for example, with the largest fishing fleet, the population ate krill paste "Ocean", and trawlers with fish went to foreign ports. And the currency was spent on the purchase of various equipment to make even more tanks and powerful atomic missiles. Support for various Papuan regimes etc ...

              You have reasoning at the level of tomato trade in the market.
              To begin with, the current situation is not caused by a shortage of gas. Banal speculation. Not the first time.
              Second point. Gas prices are not determined by Gazprom or the Russian Federation. If European regulators have a desire to stop it, they will stop it very quickly ... I repeat, they do not trade in real gas, but in futures ... Simply, there is a favorable situation ... Well, how are real purchases made under short-term contracts, not me , not you, we do not know, one can only guess ...

              Russian and European industries do not overlap very much in terms of competition. The niche of the Russian Federation is energy resources, raw materials, low-value products. In the EU, of course, there is also the fuel and energy complex, the steel industry, etc., but in the EU this is a part, which is far from the most important, in the Russian Federation, it is the basis of the economy and the main taxpayer. Even officially, oil and gas accounts for a third of budget revenues. And then there is coal, metals and the rest of the homeland ...
              Well, such a moment. Raw materials are not some kind of unique product. There is an abundance of gas, oil, and other metals on the market. Local price jumps, no weather.

              European manufacturers will not go bankrupt. If, from the point of view of the state, they are necessary, they, corny, will be subsidized.
              And who will start, bankruptcy in the paradigm of "Western civilization", this does not mean that the equipment will be sold for scrap, and a market or shopping center will be opened on the site of the plant.
              This is a definite procedure that completes the stage in the activity. GM in 2009. went bankrupt so what? More than alive.

              With what product are you going to enter the EU market? With rubbers for washing clothes from the bank? With raw materials and products of low value added, it is already there. The Russian Federation has been trying to push the pipe to Germany for a year. And the Germans mock and mock. We will give permission, then we will not give it, then we will think ...: D

              Well, regarding point 3. Are you serious? Russia, thanks to the incessant efforts of the party, the government and the personally unrecognized genius of the multi-walker, is toxic. Your company, this is Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and other pillars of world science and economy, alas. Nobody will run to you. But further degradation, a fall in the standard of living, the final slide into a class society and other delights of Asian despotism are practically guaranteed;)

        The Ministry of Economy and Climate Protection of the Federal Republic of Germany ranked Nord Stream 2 as one of the country's “geopolitical mistakes”. The pipeline is currently undergoing a certification procedure, but the German regulator ruled out that the decision will be made in the first half of 2022. At the same time, according to the Vice-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, in the event of a military conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the pipeline will almost certainly not be launched.

        It will start now. Our military in Donbass, ships blocked the Sea of ​​Azov, continuous military threats, such as exercises near the borders, etc. the launch will be postponed, postponed and postponed again.

        Gazprom has a 100% daughter, with 20% of the German gas market, so she receives a gas company under a long-term contract and sells it on the market, pays taxes and sends part of the profit to Russia. It employs 500 people, and profits in billions. Gazprom has shares in gas distribution companies almost throughout Europe. The list is very significant. Let's see the Gazprom report for December.

    In parallel with this, technicians are checking how efficient the new gas pipeline is. And while there are no results of this check, it is impossible to predict what they will show, as the German minister said.
    If I understood correctly, in order to find out how efficient the new gas pipeline is, it must be started in all modes, from minimum to maximum. And in our time, no one will just drive gas back and forth. Or will they be tested by sea water?

    But don't we care? Prices tied to the spot price as it wanted Europe gives Russia the opportunity to raise gas tariffs every quarter. Just a lying pipe gives a huge profit, so let it lie, otherwise they will start pumping gas through it and the price on the stock exchange will collapse. her and tariffs will creep down

    The inconsistency of the trans-Baltic pipeline with European legal norms was discussed this week by the new German foreign minister, Annalena Berbock.

    Well, this "lady" Analeennab bbk, who worked as a journalist for the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, is the most outstanding expert on gas pipelines. Now the journalist and rockets are being launched, airplanes are being built and gas pipelines. It is time to close all technical universities and institutes, and open only journalistic universities.

    In the meantime, the certification of the gas pipeline is being slowed down, gas prices in Europe are again surpassing the $ 1700 per thousand cubic meter mark.
    ... And yet, Germany receives part of the gas at contracted prices ... this is helping them, for now. But, this is not enough for everything and everything.
    That is how much this will not be enough and will be the main argument for making the right decisions.
    Although politicians from Brussels will bend theirs and they have support in different countries, however, as well as opposition from the industrial lobby ... who, who, is an interesting question ???
    But the voters, some of them, chose the obvious opponents of the "streams", and this also says a lot!

      The newspaper Die Welt spoke much more sharply about the Greens program, accusing the party of wanting to establish excessive control over the social and economic life of society. “Perhaps Germany should go through four years of being in power by the Greens, with their ideas of statism and almost the creation of a planned economy, in order after that to be saved by a renewed alliance (we are talking about the CDU / CSU), which will return Germany to a social, market economy "

    ... We are talking about huge quantities. According to various estimates, experts believe that to provide electricity by 2030, new gas capacity of more than 15 gigawatts (German Energy Agency), from 30 to 40 gigawatts (analytical center EPICO) or even 43 gigawatts (Boston Consulting Group) will be required.

    In just eight years, Germany would have to build at least 50, and perhaps even 140, new 300 megawatt gas-fired power plants. With planning and construction periods of at least six years, this can only be successful if everything starts immediately.

    While Germany is desperately seeking investors for new gas-fired power plants, the EU Commission is making it much more difficult. According to the French proposal, Brussels wants to assign a “sustainable” rating in the so-called taxonomy regulation only to those gas-fired power plants that produce less than 100 grams of CO₂ per kilowatt-hour. Only: There are no such gas-fired power plants yet, even on the market. Most modern gas-fired power plants today emit three times as much, about 300 grams of CO₂ per kilowatt hour.

    However, no investor should be willing to invest in gas-fired power plants unless they get EU approval for “sustainable” electricity production. Because the risk is too great that the pressure of climate policy will soon lead to the premature shutdown of expensive systems.
    Some 900 municipal electricity suppliers in Germany, in particular, are in trouble: “If the 100 gram CO₂ limit becomes part of the EU taxonomy, no one in Germany is likely to build gas-fired power plants for many years,” says Ingbert Liebing. , General Director of the Association of Municipal Enterprises (Verband kommunaler Unternehmen). Result: “For reasons of security of supply, then there would be no choice but to let the coal-fired power plants run longer or to import nuclear power from France.” The transition to 2030 in such conditions will lead to the phasing out of coal. will be "illusory", according to Liebing.
