Semi-empty gas pipeline: will Russia win the “last fight” for the joint venture 2?

The denouement in the case of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is close. A subsidiary of Gazprom in Europe has filed a lawsuit demanding to cancel discriminatory amendments to the EU's Third Energy Package, which threaten to leave the pipe half empty. The next will be a lawsuit against Denmark, which has become the last obstacle on the way of the Russian-German project. Will lawyers succeed in what politicians?




As you know, Nord Stream-2 should begin to supply Germany with at least 55 billion cubic meters of gas annually. After a terrible radiation accident at the Japanese Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, a real "green revolution" has begun in Germany, about which we are detailing told earlier. The Germans are gradually abandoning their nuclear power plants and coal-fired power plants, switching to renewable energy sources and clean gas generation. That is why you can be sure that Berlin will not surrender Nord Stream-2.

Another issue is that Washington intends to supplant Russian gas with its LNG. “Democratic molecules” are more expensive, because the Germans do not really succeed in “striking” it with market methods. That’s why all these crises are being created in Ukraine, acting as a transit country, the Kingdom of Denmark expresses “its dissenting opinion”, and pro-American European officials put sticks in the wheels of the pipeline, frankly for political reasons, putting it under the Third Energy Package.

What can a Russian monopolist do to defend his interests?

Amendments to the Third Energy Package were made and adopted when Nord Stream-2 was at an advanced stage, several billion euros have already been invested in it. According to the new rules, which completely changed the rules of the game, the gas sales and transportation business should be divided, and some other companies should have access to the pipe. The Russian side cannot fulfill these requirements, because Gazprom is a monopolist, and no other suppliers are expected for the pipeline.

This means that the project is automatically cut to half its capacity. Of the two pipes, only one can be filled, respectively, the payback period is at least doubled, and consumers will not receive the planned fuel volumes. The lawsuit filed by Nord Stream 2, Gazprom’s European division:

It would be unjust and unfair for the EU to draft amendments to the Gas Directive in such a way that they would significantly affect only Nord Stream-2, while freeing other offshore pipelines supplying gas to the EU from the implementation of these rules.


The next lawsuit should be a claim against Denmark. She has been dragging the filed applications for laying the pipeline for years, but at the same time she gave permission to build the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline to Poland only six months after submitting the documents, which we also already told. There is clear discrimination. In October, six months will elapse from the moment of filing the third, and, obviously, the latest application from Gazprom. Then either Copenhagen meets, or a trial is due, where the chances of the Danes are slim.

Despite all the obstacles, the gas pipeline will be completed. Not only Russia needs it, but Europe itself too, no matter how it tries to portray obedience to the United States. Political expediency is good, but when European businessmen offer Americans to compensate for their losses in case of refusal of Nord Stream-2, they make a “face with a brick” and talk about “protecting democracy”. This is not serious, but in the Old World they are also good at counting money.

    I have said before that Denmark will not give permission to lay SP-2 in its waters. And this was clear from the very beginning. But this is not the worst thing - the worst thing is that no one will cancel the "energy packages", due to which the payback of SP-2 will tend to "infinity", that is, investors will get a "fig and butter" and, at best, will reach self-sufficiency in years so after 10-15. Already, there is a ferment among Western investors in this project (in fact, SP-2 is actually already being built with only Gazprom's money) - who reasonably believe that the best way out for them would be to exit this project and sue .... . Denmark and ... "Gazprom" to compensate for the losses from this project. There are already rumors that the European Commission, Denmark, Poland, etc., offered the western shareholders of SP-2 to withdraw from this project and connect, as compensation for losses already incurred, on preferential terms to the Baltic Pipe and projects for the storage and distribution of liquefied gas the weight. In addition, the United States gave a clear signal that in case of withdrawal from JV-2, Western investors will not be subject to the planned sanctions and will receive some preferences in the US oil and gas projects in Europe (if they take part in them). So, for Gazprom the situation looks, let's say, depressing. Nobody is going to throw off Gazprom and Ukraine. By the way, the EU makes it clear that Gazprom can advance in the SP-2 project only on one condition - upon concluding a very long contract with Ukraine (at least 10 years) for gas supplies to it and through its territory, and on Ukrainian terms and under the patronage of a joint control center composed of the EU and the US. So that "Gazprom" - "hit" - that is, "butted with both horns" ... wink

      Well, if SP-2 is not allowed to move, then there will be nothing to blackmail. Ukraine will remain on the beans, not with a 10-year contract. But what if there is an intermediate option, a contract for Ukraine, and SP-2?

        It seems to me that Gazprom is most likely leaning towards this option, only ... .... no one will cancel energy packages. But Gazprom is now in a hopeless situation - it needs to complete the project at all costs, otherwise ... huge losses, forfeits to contractors, plus it will also force it to "clean up."

    And why did the author ignore the MAIN THING ?!

    Germany has achieved a significant mitigation of these amendments, since the final text says that the decision to grant the Russian draft exceptions to these rules will not be made by Brussels, but by the EU country where the gas pipeline enters European territory, after consultation with the European Commission. In the case of Nord Stream 2, this is Germany itself.

    - Yes.

      RF sells LNG to the EU more than the USA !!! Didn't you know that?

      According to the data published in the report of the International Association of Importers, the net import of Russian LNG by European countries in 2018 amounted to 4,4 million tons, while the United States delivered only 2,7 million tons of LNG to the territory of the EU countries.

      Too lazy to create a profile (I'm on watch), so through a VK person I write - their name is Dmitry (AdTskPaPa in VO) - now to the topic.

      ... it's time to end the gas pipelines and switch to LNG (build factories ...)

      You, as I understand it, are an "Expert" in the industry (no offense)) - I now work in geological exploration (drilling), before that I had a chance to participate in the modernization of the Usinsk GPP (construction site). Now we "drill" in oil mines (google Yarega - the only field in the world with oil production in mines). I myself am a hard worker, but I had a chance to talk to specialists while working. And here's what I can say about your idea (I'll start from the end):

      ... LNG plants, create infrastructure for a whole new industry ...

      Can you even imagine it !! .. Usinsk - I worked 1 out of 4 seasons (expansion of production), there was a mega-building. The people from Volgograd to Mari-El gathered, for 3 years or so, and nobody filon, everything was quickly done, and without stopping the enterprise. Now think. From scratch to create a plant ... Although, in principle, somewhere in the same way 3-4 years will come out (without a preliminary cycle). BUT. We have to make deliveries now, the EU will not wait until we rebuild, and with all affairs such a project is 5-7 years (7 is a minimum, 5 goof optimism))). Now estimate the number of “cubes” required for delivery, and the capacity of the new plant. 1m just can not do, even 3 will not be enough; Ust-Luga? Yes, damn it, "all-Union construction sites" fade ... and BAM combined! - cool! - One question - "where is the money, Zin"? (V. Vysotsky). But suppose we did it - now we need to repay the money. How? .. That's right. "Having beaten up the price tag" (moreover, objectively, and I will show it further) - so how will Gazprom after this differ from Yusovtsy?

        So ... LNG is a "very tricky thing" (well done, Winnie the Pooh! He knew ... knew!). We move on to logistics. And you, Irina, yourself showed the bottleneck of your project.

        ... build enterprises for the production of containers and containers for LNG and produce specials. transport for transportation.

        In principle, LNG is a profitable topic, but let's digress. Have you sent / received anything by mail? For sure. For filling - did it take long? Why so, if the planes cover the distance from Moscow to Vladivostok in hours (we do not take into account the "mail processing" time). Technically - what prevents ALL mail from being sent by air ... Sorry, I didn't hear .. What? .. EXPENSIVE !? And you do not use airmail unless absolutely necessary, because the price bites. So that's it! This discovery was probably made at the State Planning Committee (indeed, even during the reign of Tsar Pea) - you can attach a mail car to any passing train (load a container onto a ship). So it is with gas. An analogy: as long as the rails are in order, it is not a problem to hook up a carriage to the passing train, the main thing is that a path is laid to the desired point - this is the most difficult thing. Later. The movement of the trains will pick up and deliver the cargo by itself, just repair the road on time. In general, the gas "flows" through the pipe itself, just maintain the pressure, and contain the "Way" ... but maintaining the air fleet for the sole purpose of transporting mail is OVERALL. Compare "Special transport for transportation" - or 1000 km of track, comparable to them in terms of the volume of "metal" / work and service staff; by a brigade of railroad workers in 5 digs. Yes. Exactly. Our special board also needs technical staff (refuel / check / release), damn it, he also needs a crew ... And a control shot .. an airfield - to receive a mail plane, you need a fucking airfield .. and for gas .. correct - regasification station / terminal (in the pipe the gas is already ready for use by the industry, take it and "eat"). The conclusion is simple - LNG is good and convenient, like ... airmail. For the consumer, it is fast, convenient and good, but. BUT. Until Communism comes on earth and the client's (real) comfort prevails over costs, i.e. money will disappear, everything will remain as it is. LNG - yes, it is convenient to store it (exactly to store it) - yes, it is convenient to transport it .. but exactly what to transport, and neither one nor that "Gazprom" does not; Russian gas (roughly) goes straight from the field to the "pipe", and through it - to the customer, where it is consumed at his discretion: it is burnt, liquefied (for storage). His business. It's worth it ... well, it's worth it. And then the Americans! With its own "airmail", where a gas liquefaction plant (crammed into the price tag), a "steamer" / gas carrier (with a crew and port services / overhead costs - also in the price tag), a receiving / regasification terminal (build yourself and decide whether to fill it in the price), delivery to ... (there are options, but the post is not rubber))) The final conclusion: do it yourself))) Fact: the construction of LNG infrastructure is underway - is it necessary to intensify it, well, see above, in "Cabinets" not only thieves are sitting, I think they will not offend themselves, which means that they do it according to their minds. I have not met a single fool at the sites, even in the "Moscow" commissions. "S-in o l ... her" - yes, DB - never. Something like this. hi

    ... Today, July 17, Gazprom increased gas transit to Europe through the Ukrainian gas transportation system by 25% - 60 million cubic meters per day. This decision is connected with the repair of two strands of the Nord Stream gas pipeline. As of July 17, 2019, the transit application is 300,2 million cubic meters. m / day. Thus, the Slovak direction will be loaded at 99% ....

    It turns out that Gazprom began to build a gas pipeline without getting permission in advance and not fixing the rules of the game so that you can click on the “partners”. Which allows them to change the rules along the way.

    And he fell into the same trap in the South, where part of the pipes had to be removed back ..

    Gas generally "flows" through the pipe itself - only maintain pressure.

    LNG is good and convenient as ... airmail. For the consumer it is fast, convenient and good, but. BUT. Until Communism comes to the earth and the comfort of the client (real) does not prevail over the costs, i.e. money will disappear, everything will remain as it is. LNG - yes, it’s convenient to store it (namely to store) - yes, it’s convenient to carry it .. but just what to carry. Neither - nor that Gazprom does.

    - I can’t argue with you ... how ... as with a specialist in the field of gas production ... - Besides ... - I agree with you in many ways ...
    - I am a gas user; you are a user; they are users, etc. ... - And I, as a user, can say that they bring LNG gas to gas tanks (which supply residential buildings with gas), pump them; and then it is served directly in residential apartments. - There is also "natural gas", which is supplied to residential buildings through yellow pipes by gravity ...
    - But even in residential apartment buildings, gas is supplied somewhere up to the 6-7th floor, and then electric stoves “start” ... - But in many new apartment buildings gas service is not provided at all ... - everything is on electricity .., gas "does not rise" high ... - special devices are needed, etc ...

    - Gas itself ... is like oil from which oil products can be made (and crude oil itself can be used as fuel) ... - the same thing with gas ...
    - And LNG ... is a kind of already processed product from gas; they transport it, deliver it to the destination in the required volume ordered ... - to any village, village, settlement, etc. (you won’t drag the gas pipe there) ... - And also ... - to any region , to an island, to any state (through large bodies of water - oceans, etc. ...) ...

    - Russia will have to build a whole network of LNG plants anyway ... - And carry this LNG to any ends of the world; to carry on barges; on ships; by railway; by road; even by airplanes and helicopters ... - And carry it in all kinds of containers of any capacity ... - And the Russian Federation needs to really, at the state level, spin up this gas direction, become a leading state in this area; international monopolist ...
    - Of course, Russia, as always, can "oversleep" and ... and ... and ... - Germany, Turkey, Iran (their cheap gas) will start liquefying Russian gas with might and main at their own, quickly constructed plants ... - and deliver to all ends of Zap. Europe (here they already will not ask permission from the USA) ...
    - And what about Russia ??? - And Russia, as always, on imported delivery vehicles (special vehicles, special railway trains, special barges, special tankers, etc.) in imported tanks and in import containers (all kinds of containers) will begin to carry its own gas, both on the territory of the Russian Federation and in other states ...
    - Yes, and to which foreign state all the management of these transportations will fall ... - who will own a block of shares in all these transportations, manage delivery methods, distribute deliveries and conclude delivery contracts, etc ...
    - And so here Russia, as always, is slamming everything ... and will begin to "work for the uncle" ...
    - Gazprom is already becoming an obvious outsider ... - it turned out to be too weak and unprofessional ... - Very soon, new gas magnates will enter the international arena ... - And it is unlikely that these will be Russian international gas managers ...
    - Somehow, too sluggish, incompetent and unprofessional, Russia acts and defends its commercial and industrial state global positions ...
    - There is nothing to be done ... - Alas ...

      You didn’t read my post very carefully

      Fact the construction of LNG infrastructure is going

      I wrote without delving into the topic. but since it bothers you. offhand:

      Yamal LNG
      Sakhalin-2
      Arctic SPG-2
      Shtokman LNG
      Far Eastern LNG
      Pechora LNG
      Baltic LNG
      Current or planned LNG projects take a look at https://www.pwc.ru/en/publications/russian-lng-projects.html (Yandex. Overview of Russian LNG projects)
      Such beautiful men work on Sabetta



      Currently, the Yamal LNG project is serviced by 7 LNG carriers. There will be 15 of them. Yamalmax. The vessels are absolutely identical: they have a deadweight of 85 thousand tons, a length of almost 300 m and a width of 50 m. The capacity of Yamalmax-class gas carriers is 172,6 thousand cubic meters. m of gas. They can operate at temperatures down to -50 degrees and, having an Arc7 ice class, are capable of passing 2,1 m thick ice.The first gas carriers were handed over to the customer in November 2017. True, all Yamalmax class vessels are built in South Korea, at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering shipyard.

      And what about Russia ???

      So here Russia

      In my opinion, we are not such outsiders

        Russia, as always, on imported delivery vehicles.

        It's not all that bad either.

        Gas carriers will be built at the domestic shipbuilding complex in the city of Bolshoi Kamen, which is being created at the Zvezda shipyard. The creation of a shipbuilding complex at the Zvezda shipyard provides for three stages:
        I stage: 2012 - 2019
        Stage II: 2018 - 2022
        Stage III: 2021 - 2024
        According to the KER group of companies, the total area of ​​buildings and structures of the first stage of construction is 218 thousand square meters. m, including 69,7 thousand square meters. m - closed.

        Of course, not everything is smooth.

        On March 20, 2018, it was reported that the Zvezda shipyard broke off contracts with a major contractor by 17,5 billion rubles, which would lead to a delay in the construction of the shipyard. The postponement of the deadline would be critical for the industry if the plant provided for the replacement of imported vessels subject to international sanctions against the industry. But now the ice class ships that the Star will build are being bought at shipyards in China and South Korea. These countries do not participate in sanctions against Arctic oil and gas projects. And the cost of the ships built on the Zvezda will not be much lower, said Alexam Kalachev, an expert analyst at Finam Group of Companies. In addition, in his opinion, hydrocarbon production in Arctic projects at the current level of world prices is unprofitable, especially taking into account transportation along the Northern Sea Route. Therefore, it does not make sense to force it now, with an excess of deposits.

        So I have a chance for the future. If interested, here is a link to the full article:

          - It's good that South Korea "does not forget us" ... -

          All Yamalmax class ships are being built in South Korea at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering shipyard.

          And more:

          And here he is - the “moment of truth":

          ... hydrocarbon production in Arctic projects at the current level of world prices is unprofitable, especially taking into account transportation along the Northern Sea Route. Therefore, it does not make sense to force it now, with an excess of deposits.

          - And where is he, this "excess of deposits" in Russia ??? - All in the same mosquito swamps, impassable swamps, at monstrous depths, and all in the same "Russian North" ...
          - And how much will the "pipeline" gas cost, which will go to Turkey; and the gas that will go through SP-2 (where so many "hangers-on" have already set their "conditions" to Russia, according to which Russia will constantly "unfasten" the monetary bribe for all this "racketeering" ...) - But SP- 2 should also "recoup" itself, and the Turkish Stream should "recoup" itself ...

          - So, there is no "backlog for the future", but there are enormous "debts for the future" and enslaving obligations Gazprom has incurred (due to its incompetence and unprofessionalism) ... - However, personally, that miserable miserable margin is enough for Gazprom, that he will get this way and that for gas ... - And all the debts and terms of the enslaving agreements will have to be paid off by the taxpayers of Russia ...

          - Today, Gazprom is tomorrow's outsider and the most notorious pest For Russia (something like a failed nano technology that cost Russia trillions of rubles) ...
          - So today Russia has the opportunity (or maybe it already was, maybe Russia was already late) to start everything from a "blank slate" and create a "new gas breakthrough" ... - To create an LNG empire and become a world monopoly in this area ... - But, apparently, there are not enough minds in Russia in this area ... - only weak "led troechniki" ... - Alas and ah ...

            Sorry, I’m unsubscribing for a long time, but I’m writing directly from the rig - they distract me. I, like, actually work here, and the master looks askance when I'm sitting at a laptop laughing (a joke - he is a man of the world, he will not surrender).
            Well, let's go.

            And where is he, this "excess of deposits" .... there is no "backlog for the future ..."

            Why are you such a pessimist, smilelove I dashed off a whole list of deposits - are you not enough? And yes, they are in the North, but believe me, they are quite accessible. And that is why our "sworn partners" so desire to get into our Arctic. I can say this as a person who has dashed a lot across the North, precisely for the purpose of exploring these very deposits. Work here is in full swing and its endless edge. But I do not see the point of forcing. Firstly, the price of the issue. Even with current opportunities, you can simply “fill” the market with gas, albeit by pipeline. And the meaning. “Drop” prices, or even cause a crisis of overproduction. Gas is not firewood, you can’t stack it in the yard, and you need to build new storage facilities. A spud will also not burn more than it can. However, consumption growth is evident, and production is also increasing as it increases. Further, gas - the final resource and previously developed deposits are depleted over time, so why should we hurry - let the Arabs and others spend their bowels, we still have enough.
