Media: Russia can win the gas war from America

76
Exports of US gas, which is scheduled to begin in early spring, may lead to unexpected consequences for the US, and strengthen the position of the Russian Federation on the European market, writes Foreign Policy.




"For several years, past since the United States decided to enter the international gas market, the situation has changed radically," the article cites. RIA News. “In particular, the bright predictions about the insatiable demand for American gas in Asia have faded away.”

The price of gas fell after the price of oil and now does not cover the cost of liquefaction and transportation. “In addition, Asian gas demand was not so constantly growing. Japan, which needed this source of energy after the Fukushima accident, solved its problems, and the Chinese economy shows a slowdown in growth. In addition, China has many options to meet their gas needs, including through new contracts with Russia, ”the magazine notes.

The next blow to US plans in Asia was the launch of a gas project in Australia, which is much closer to the market.

“In these conditions Europe will be the only alternative for American companies, but even there it’s not so simple. There are terminals for receiving liquefied gas only in Western Europe, and Eastern Europe, which appears to be the main consumer, will have to extend new gas pipelines to the west, ”the newspaper writes.

“The new gas flow from the United States may have a paradoxical result and strengthen, rather than reduce, Europe’s dependence on Russia. Relatively cheap Russian gas is so attractive that it has already caused a split in Europe; for example, Germany seeks to build new pipelines and relies more on commercially available Russian gas, despite Brussels cries of the need to find alternative suppliers, ”the publication says.

According to the magazine, “if Gazprom continues to adapt, lower prices and change the style of doing business in Europe, it may well maintain its leading position for many decades, and this is exactly what Brussels has been trying to avoid for so many years.”

“Politically, such a strategy is necessary for the Kremlin, since it maintains the position of Russia as an energy partner of Europe and provides political influence,” the author of the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, James Henderson, quotes.

      Iran has no gas for export to Europe. And to Asia too. More precisely, they have gas - at least you eat some singing (one South Pars is worth it), but the transit infrastructure is absolutely not developed. They plan only to drag pipelines in the medium term.

          There is. But the reserves closest to the Turks deposits are not large. To multiply the supply of gas, it is necessary to pull the pipe from Pars, that is, across the country. And this is money and time.

      In my opinion, there is no need to push anything - build an alternative in the East! Put the EU on "starvation rations" - let them look for a cheap alternative. And see what happens. They themselves will give money, and signed papers from Brussels, and any route to choose from, and they will come up with a noose for transit countries. Iran and Qatar need 10 years to transport such volumes, one construction and coordination ... It will be more expensive with the USA, and this is unambiguous.
      The eastern alternative provides a bunch of advantages - this is a trump card for bargaining, and get rid of euro-blackmail, etc. etc .. Judge for yourself: how much does the market in Japan, Korea, China and India cost at least? And let the EU think about its behavior. They only had to climb on the head of the Russian Federation on gas. According to their understanding, Nord Stream-1 (energy package) is half dry, Ukraine indulges in valves as it wants (it’s already the third gas. The war is on - it’s become a usual thing, but the Russian Federation loses money and contains an independent one), Bulgaria was stupidly forbidden to build, etc.
      Why coddle with this Europe? From the side it looks like a whole comedy - only it’s left to climb on your head. And it’s time to take care of their gas supply - sometimes they sit without gas, but we heat this Europe. hi

        I would be in the place of Gazprom would be engaged ... in Japan. Kill two birds with one stone. I will explain a little. Gas consumption in Japan is 80 billion and 100% of imports of this raw material. Japan is ready to provide everything from finance to equipment. Even if we take 60 billion, they wanted so much to let it go along South or Nord Stream-2, and that's all at hand. There, to the Kuril Islands (and gas them, and Sakhalin) 40 km (if memory serves).
        And about the hares: the Europeans and the Chinese are alarmed.
        The first that the Kremlin put on Europe. And they can’t see gas, like their ears - they will put their energy packages there far away.
        Second, you need to understand the eastern mentality and the millennial confrontation between Beijing and Tokyo. The PRC will be more agreeable in the negotiations - they will also begin to take offense. Although they themselves would have done the same at Gazprom’s place. And the trade turnover between China and Japan is huge - how can one explain one’s interest in the gas pipeline.
        Yes, and Abe seeks to meet with GDP primarily not because of the Kuril Islands (this is rather the inner cuisine of Tokyo), but because of the interest in the Russian Federation as a peacemaker and energy supplier (Fukushima probably remember the attitude of the Japanese towards nuclear power plants - the islands are small all the same, but a lot of people). Peacemaker, because with all neighbors relations are bad and heated. An energy supplier - everything is clear here, dragging LNG from Qatar or, here, from Sakhalin.
        Therefore, I think that Tokyo is now preferable for Gazprom. And the interest in Japan is huge - it can replace many European companies. Electronics, mechanical engineering, machine tools, etc. Abe needs at least some success. And trade with the Russian Federation can give a boost to the entire economy of the country. And the Americans will not be able to block the gas issue in Japan (they have already made it clear), so Tokyo can declare its "interests". Business in Japan is based on clannishness (nepotism) and has a huge impact on the government. and parliament. hi
        And this is just the Japanese market. hi

    The gas market will change dramatically in the next few years.

    The world's largest gas liquefaction plant, which the Americans are building shock
    in Australia will work on more modern technologies than the factory
    in Qatar. The cost and price of liquefied gas will decrease.
    Liquefied gas terminals are being built across Europe.

    Gas pipelines will lose strategic importance. There will always be an opportunity
    bring down the price, showing filled liquefied gas storage.

    if Gazprom continues to adapt, cut prices and change the way it does business in Europe, it may well maintain its leading position for decades to come

    The keyword is "lower prices." Such an unobtrusive nudge of Gazprom towards the "blue dream of Europe" - a lot of gas and for nothing. It seems that Gazprom has smart specialists who plan the economic policy of this structure.

          If we consider the prospect of increasing rates for transit through Ukraine, then Nord Stream is quite a commercially profitable project

          Can I do it in tsifirki?
          North P - 2 --- 11 billion bucks
          Ukraine receives more than $ 100 million a month for gas transit from Russia to Europe. The First Deputy Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Igor Didenko told reporters about this.

          i.e. 1.2 billion per year. taking into account that deliveries will remain at the same level.
          But the entire gas transmission system is serving Ukraine.
          based on these figures - only the payback of the SP-2 pipe is a minimum of 10 years, but do not forget. that any gas pipeline including underwater. requires maintenance and checks. those. these costs will fall on Gazprom.
          What am I talking about. any project with a payback period of more than 7 -8 years. already problematic.
          Here, these numbers do not even smell.

            You are welcome. "Deal of the century" gas-pipes ", the contract of the century" gas-pipes "- a long-term agreement (international contract) in 1970 between the Soviet Union and the Federal Republic of Germany on the supply to the USSR of large-diameter pipes and other equipment for the construction of a gas pipeline to Western Europe with a payment for the supplied pipes and equipment with gas from the fields of Western Siberia. It received this name due to the fact that it was the largest in the history of the Soviet-German / Russian-German and Soviet-European / Russian-European agreements, involving decades of cooperation. "- wiki
            The gas pipeline itself was not built in one year, and then the pipes and equipment were paid for with the same gas "for more than a dozen years"
            In our situation, the currency is "almost immediately"

        Crazed his cleaners!
        Police investigators in the Moskovsky district opened a case regarding the theft of a crocodile bag worth 300 thousand rubles from an SUV of cleaning lady Maria P. The incident occurred in New Moscow in the parking lot of the Rumyantsevo business center.
        A woman found the door of her car, which was in the parking lot at the entrance to the business center, open. It is noteworthy that the robbers carried out an expensive bag of the famous Dior fashion house in just 3 minutes while the car was standing in front of the building. Together with the bag, a purse made of crocodile leather, bank cards and documents were stolen from a 44-year-old cleaning lady at the PJSC Gazprom office premises. /lifenews.ru/news/179413

        So who is "gas war", and who is his mother.

    All the thoughts of our government are to draw in as much natural resources as possible at any price. At this time, the United States receives cheap electricity from cheap oil and develops industrial production, transfers plants from Southeast Asia and reduces unemployment. We need to think not only about Nord Stream 2 but also about the construction of thermal power plants, gasification of the population and production at low prices, lower gas prices than raise the real sector of the economy.

      1) At this time, the United States receives cheap electricity from cheap oil
      2) and are developing industrial production,
      3) Transfer factories from Southeast Asia and reduce unemployment
      You hear yourself fool fool fool - apparently not ..
      Of cheap oil, cheap electricity is possible. The only question that arises is how long oil sellers are willing to pay 0,5 dollars for taking oil from them without closing wells / production / dismissal of oil workers.
      I won’t be surprised if the US oil lobby is pushing all the buttons so that the price rises a little. There are no fools who want to keep hard workers for a penny — there are trade unions and other capitalist crap.
      And then everything, as usual, transfer the plants to Southeast Asia and reduce unemployment (in Asia).

    And I don’t understand that these rams in Europe are so opposed to the "Nord Stream

    Rams ??? Well, well, you reassure yourself ??? Ours with this pipe still did not perry through the northern Arctic and Indian, and the result is one "Rams" do not give us anywhere to realize our capabilities (Wishlist). Any attempts are broken off at the root.
    An interesting fact: Gazprom is two or three times cheaper than Alibaba EPT.

    The gas market will change dramatically in the next few years.

    Of course, of course, the whole world benefited us here as the United States three years ago with its shale gas, using new technologies, so that by 2014 there will be no place to sell our gas, fart, it’s not grown together. Now we’ll fill it with new technologies all storage facilities with liquefied gas, and again Gazprom with its gas will go around the world restless, well, take it from me ... Well, well.

    “Under these conditions, the only alternative for American companies will be Europe, but even there it is not so simple. There are terminals for receiving liquefied gas only in Western Europe, and Eastern Europe, which seems to be the main consumer, will have to stretch new gas pipelines to the west ”

    So about this two years ago it was known that there was a problem with the terminals for receiving there. The states don't care. Europe main should buy gas from the United States, not from the Russian Federation. What then to do with it is not important, even if it is standing in tankers, waiting in the wings. A purely political issue.
