The German government announced "delicate negotiations" with Kazakhstan on oil supplies

German officials are looking for solutions to the problem when imposing an embargo on Russian oil. As Junge Welt writes, already now the refinery in Schwedt is forced to work at best at half of its capacity, respectively - to reduce workers.


State Secretary of the German Ministry of Economics Michael Kellner (represents the Greens) said that the German authorities are "conducting delicate negotiations on the diversification of supplies." He made this statement in the course of a conversation with the labor collective of the refinery in Schwedt, who, to put it mildly, are concerned about the looming prospects.

According to Kellner, the German delegation is negotiating with Kazakhstan on the issue of oil supplies. At the same time, as stated by a government official, oil from the Republic of Kazakhstan will go to German refineries no earlier than in six months.

In Germany itself, in connection with this question, they are asking: how is the Scholz government going to buy oil in Kazakhstan if it expects to support anti-Russian sanctions? In this regard, as ordinary citizens of Germany believe, the government is simply leading them by the nose and trying to deceive themselves. After all, when buying oil in Kazakhstan, it is impossible to guarantee that in the end it will not turn out to be Russian. Moreover, Moscow and Astana can simply make an “exchange” of oil volumes, which will be even more profitable for Russia, since there is no need to resolve issues with the delivery of oil to the EU under sanctions, including when Western companies refuse to insure such hydrocarbon traffic. Apparently, this is the declared delicacy of the negotiations.

Ralf Scheyer, Managing Director of the German Schwedt Refinery:

The refinery will continue to produce petroleum products in 2023. I am sure that from January 1 we will do it. We will only work, probably on a smaller scale.

According to Shayer, it is difficult for him to perceive the new realities with a positive, but, as he put it, "it will not be the same as before."

The German edition notes that if supplies from Russia stop without replacing the volume of oil, then the German refineries will have enough stocks for a maximum of a week.

    Kazakhstan can only act as an intermediary for the sale of the same Russian oil, but at a premium, it is high time for the Germans to turn on their brains, NOBODY has oil reserves except Russia in the required quantities for Europe.

      If everything was like that, then it’s normal .. The Kazakhs are still Maidan people and are tightly tied in the west .. No matter how Kazakhstan is set on fire a second time .. Judging by the vote in the UN, they are not "friends" to us and are just waiting for the moment .. This is what I say as knowing them and for a long time

      Everything is exactly the opposite. Kazakhstan produces oil and not a little, but deliveries to Europe, in the volumes necessary for Germany, can only be carried out through Russia or Iran ...

    It turns out that Kazakhstan should "delicately" stop deliveries via the oil pipeline to China and transport oil to Germany via the Azerbaijani oil pipeline. True, there is no transit infrastructure for this, and China is clearly not happy.

      The Kazakhs will never take oil from China. At the same time, almost 80% (about 54 million tons) of crude oil exports were driven by the Kazakhs through the Caspian Pipe Consortium (a joint project of Kaz.-Ross. and some others) through Novorossiysk. So they will drive, at the same time buying part of our oil in the same Novorossiysk and selling it to the Europeans as their own. They can pay us for oil in yuan. Accordingly, all payments will pass by Europe and the USA. Like version...

      In Kazakhstan, the Americans rule the oil. Here he really is conducting delicate negotiations. Otherwise, pumping oil through Novorossiysk is not comme il faut.

    Kazakhstan has already agreed on the supply of oil to Europe bypassing Russia through the Caspian Sea. Well, Russia will pump its oil into their pipe, that's all for a short time.
    It will be a bit more expensive than directly, but here they themselves, as they say, wanted it.

      Come on, Putin is selling Russian natural resources at a huge discount - if only they would take it. He has nowhere to go, "multi-move". And China, India, Turkey have already enriched themselves perfectly on this. Kazakhstan will also get rich. And Kazakhstan will sell Russian oil to Germany at the regular price.

          Ha, how the enemies of the USSR, who seized the RSFSR only for the sake of their enrichment at the expense of Russia and the Russian people, love to make themselves "benefactors", throwing "crumbs from the master's table" to the Russian people.
          And you should keep quiet, and not be "proud" of the fact that in 30 years you were able to create only a miserable raw-material-imported State, parasitizing at the expense of what was created and built by the Soviet people.

            And this is what a member of the CPSU tells me, who has successfully squandered almost two and a half thousand tons of gold reserves left by Stalin (who, by the way, introduced an element of private capital into the economy in the form of artels for various types of production). It was you, the orthodox communists, who screwed up all the reserves and put the USSR on an oil and gas needle, while also ruining agriculture and putting the country close to imported food for the same 30 years. And then the USSR pros ..... in general, you understand. How many barricades did you personally build in 1991? What are you proud of? What have you achieved? They took the Central Committee out of the supervision of the KGB and sold everything sacred that was in the country to the enemy. You need to sit and be silent. The USSR and the real communists who defended it in the war against European Nazism have one enemy - it's you, the pseudo-communist propagandists, agitators and activists of the late 70s and 80s. Behind loud, stupid slogans you hide the complete business and economic mediocrity of the system of political pressure on the economic laws of life. You are simply ridiculous in your sobs about "enemies of the USSR." Sorry for being direct.

            No one created the state, it was, everyone just grabbed it. And in order to save what has been grabbed, now you have to think about the state, but not about people's happiness

    It is not possible to transport this oil from Kazakhstan by air ...

      I don't know what's going on with oil, I didn't read about the negotiations in the press. But gasoline in Germany is getting cheaper. In May, more than 2 euros per liter of 95, now you can fill it up for 1,66.

    Exactly! Even after the end of the SVO, it will not be the same as before. Let's remember everything and everyone.

    From the point of view of an ordinary person, it reads like this ...
    The German authorities cannot, for political reasons, buy Russian oil. But we need oil. So we need to come up with something. Even if this oil is produced in Russia, the main thing is not to stain white gloves. Kazakhstan will help Germany with the supply of oil. Perfect solution!
    It is good that they did not choose Nauru or Swaziland as an oil supplier.
    Sorry for the sarcasm!

    CPC to help them, passes through Russia to the Black Sea, formally from Kazakhstan, but controlled by Russia and most of the oil is Russian.

    German authorities are "conducting delicate negotiations on diversifying supplies"
    And who prevented you from getting Russian oil and gas at affordable prices and continuing to live and work as before without harming your economy and the average person? Is it really "European solidarity" and the desire to please the United States? Or is Russophobia, which has increased many times, forced to unite in an anti-Russian shobla? Now wander around the world with a plaintive face and tearful requests to sell energy at a price many times higher than before. Welcome to the "free and democratic" world where the sovereignty of the country is an vague and unnecessary concept.

    Oh, Kazakhstan is now profiting.
    1 he profits from the import of goods that are not directly sold.
    2 for the export of our oil.
    You guys don't have to do anything.
