In Europe, they started talking about possible "gas battles" against the backdrop of a reduction in gas supplies by Russia

54

Europe is on the verge of a shortage of "blue fuel", in Germany they do not rule out that in the near future a "battle for gas" will begin between European countries. Meanwhile, prices for "blue fuel" have already exceeded $1800 per 1 cubic meters.


The reduction in the volume of gas supplies via Nord Stream, as well as the message from Gazprom that the gas pipeline will be stopped for scheduled maintenance for as long as 10 days, and even both lines at once, caused, if not panic, then an alarming expectation of something bad . In Germany, they have already begun to calculate how long the gas already pumped into UGS facilities will last if Russia does not resume pumping, and they came to the conclusion that only for two “cold” months, and only if the winter is warm.

European politicians are already talking about a "gas battle" between European countries, as was the case in 2015 and 2016. Friedrich Merz, the leader of Germany's largest opposition party, the CDU, said that the option of serious conflicts over gas should not be ruled out.

Against this background, gas prices jumped sharply, reaching $1800 per thousand cubic meters.

It should be noted that Gazprom twice reduced the volume of pumping through the Nord Stream, eventually stopping at an average volume of 67 million cubic meters of gas instead of 167 million. The reason was the delay in the return of the gas turbine for the pumping station from repair. As it turned out, Canada does not return it, announcing sanctions. The second turbine "Gazprom" stopped independently, declaring the development of its overhaul life. Later, the Russian company announced that the gas pipeline would be stopped for scheduled repairs from 11 to 21 July.

Meanwhile, in Europe they say that Russia's decision to reduce the volume of gas supplied is not related to technical problems, it is a political decision. Moscow does not comment on the statements of European politicians, but hints that there is another gas pipeline that is completely ready for operation.

      Will Germany also take part in the battle, or is she thinking of sitting on the sidelines?

        I hope that you and I will witness the collapse of Western banditry, which has sowed confusion and discord throughout the world. This time will forever fall into the annals of history, as an example of the fact that the "printing machine" for the issuance of unsecured money is not omnipotent, and an inflated economy that does not have any real basis under it bursts like a soap bubble, one has only to put at least some then the real pressure from outside

        that the gas pipeline will be stopped for scheduled maintenance for as long as 10 days, and even both threads at once, caused if not panic

        If only something else didn’t go according to plan and the planned maintenance lasted, let’s say, not 10 days, but 20-25.

          What for? Everything goes in the direction of stopping the joint venture. One gas compressor unit in Montreal is under repair, one has already been stopped, as it needs to be overhauled, another one needs to be stopped in the near future. In total, only three out of six work. Soon, these three will begin to take turns approaching the resource for overhaul. Canadians stubbornly create a gas shortage in Germany... Even if all sorts of CNN, DW and NBC say a hundred times that Putin's policy is to blame, everyone involved in gas knows that the address of the problem is not in Moscow.

            Canadians stubbornly create a gas deficit in Germany.

            This is how they play sanctions. But closer to the fall, when the underground storage facilities do not have the gas they need for the winter, everything will change, because they will first introduce such sanctions and then cancel them. As an example, fertilizer and wheat. And the Germans will do everything so that the turbines are in place.

      For Western bureaucrats, even the head of Shell explained in detail that the introduction of "ceilings on prices for Russian oil" would not bring any effect, Russia would sell the same amount of oil, receiving $ 1 billion a day, according to Forbes, and the economies of the West would collapse:
      https://youtu.be/iintzY7wyyM
      https://www.putin-today.ru/archives/155540

      In 2022, Gazprom sells one and a half times less gas to the EU than in 2021, and earns 2,5 times more on this, the introduction by the G-7 countries of a "ceiling on prices for Russian oil and gas" will increase Russia's revenues even more:
      https://youtu.be/K1I-DyToObY

      Thanks to the brilliant strategy of Russia, there is a fight for our oil, there is a fight between the USA, the EU and Asia, Russia sells at $90 a barrel and makes super profits:
      https://youtu.be/wAZv8e1jR38
      Indian state-owned companies are fighting Chinese for Russian oil, by the way, in a couple of decades, India will consume 25% of the world's oil, becoming the largest consumer, overtaking China:
      https://youtu.be/TW5vBc6hZ08

      Due to the lack of alternative gas anywhere, prices per thousand cubic meters in the EU will skyrocket to $3500 in autumn, all factories will close in the EU, turning its economy into Moldova:
      https://youtu.be/ahNfWODN0hk

      Due to the introduction by the G-7 countries of the "ceiling on prices for Russian oil", Russia will start selling its oil even more expensive, and the West will not get it at all:

    But at the same time, no one is going to lift the sanctions. Weapons continue to be supplied to Ukraine. I wonder if these people have ever heard anything about causation?

      hi They heard, but they do not want to listen. The biggest mistake of Europe, the admission to the EU and NATO, Tribaltia and Poland. Now this is the main irritant. England rubs its hands, the American military-industrial complex receives fabulous budgets. I think this scenario was played out at the beginning of the XNUMXs and there were several options.

      Causal relationship? What is this? For example. The Japanese are discouraged, shrug their shoulders and ask why we are. And they are not the first and not the last. The Poles want to sue for gas. And there are a lot of them. They cheat, the answer comes surprised. And the answer is so-so, weak.

    Gazprom will have problems selling gas to Europe in the near future. We need to deal with LNG, gas processing and turn east. Production is falling. they also decided to go on strike. They take advantage of the moment, because of some $ 400 a month. You see, they don’t have enough salaries on drilling platforms. The Norgs have reached the ceiling in gas and oil production.

    Freezing international reserves - too. And about the discussion of the transfer of these reserves to a third party - generally beyond.

    Considering that the country is under sanctions, the average annual gas price of 1000 dollars instead of 150-200 per 1000 m3 should somehow help Russia to support the social sphere. So I wish the EU countries that summers continue to be hot and winters cold.

    And Europe should be the least of all concerned about this, Russia decided to stop the gas supply and stopped it, and you think and guess what and for what, but the gas is not going through the pipes yet. And for some reason, no one in Europe thought about why they imposed sanctions against Russia, "for political or technical", but when Russia presses their tail, they begin to squeal like March cats.

    In national interests yesterday an interesting article was published about how the West is going to live on. There is a translation in foreign media. Interestingly, and except for the nuances of the topic of the day, all the same Cold War thinking and rob a neighbor in order to survive and continue to proudly carry democracy. In some respects, the article can be viewed as a long-term strategy for the West.
