US victory: Nord Stream-2 in Europe flies past the heating season

Apparently, Nord Stream-2, which has already been built at 81%, still flies past the upcoming European heating season. This means that Gazprom will remain dependent on Ukraine, at least in the next 2020, which will continue to dictate its transit conditions. Meanwhile, the United States is actively pumping Poland as a regional gas hub, which in the future will be able to replace Russia in the Ukrainian gas market.




The reason for this is the latest decision of the Danish authorities, which issued an agreement to lay the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline (“Baltic Pipe”) in their territorial waters. Through this pipeline, Warsaw will annually receive 10 billion cubic meters of gas from Norway in transit through Denmark. It can be put into operation already in 2022. Poland showed interest in this project after the famous Munich speech by Vladimir Putin, having decided to reduce its energy dependence on Russia.

In addition, Warsaw relied on LNG by building a receiving terminal in иноwinoujсьcie with a capacity of 5 billion cubic meters. Currently, a program has been adopted to increase its ability to accept LNG to 7,5 billion cubic meters. In addition, the country's leadership plans to build a second LNG terminal, floating, in the city of Gdansk. The Polish authorities have already signed multi-year contracts for the supply of liquefied natural gas with the United States and Great Britain.

After the launch of the Baltic Pipe, Warsaw will be able to claim the status of a regional gas hub. Poland has a chance to become a transit country for American gas to the Ukrainian market, supplanting the Russian one. The speed with which Copenhagen issued the permit for laying the Baltic Pipe indicates that the United States is keeping its finger on the pulse of gas pipelines in Eastern Europe and is working to gradually squeeze Gazprom out.

The affairs of our “national treasure” are, in fact, not very good.

On the one hand, "Nord Stream-2" in its marine part is practically completed, a small Danish site can be covered in just a few weeks. The main obstacle so far is the very Denmark, which with enviable ease approved Poland the Baltic Pipe. Unable to directly ban the Russian gas pipeline, Copenhagen chose the tactic of delaying bureaucratic processes. The Russian gas company intends to sue Denmark, appealing to the decision on the Polish Baltic Pipe.

On the other handGazprom’s problems are much wider than just Copenhagen’s special position. Firstly, even if the offshore part of Nord Stream-1 was ready by January 2 along with the Danish section, it would be necessary to spend a couple of months for commissioning to start the gas pipeline. Secondly, the onshore part of the pipeline in Europe has not yet been completed, which should connect Austria with Germany. Thirdly, European bureaucrats put a serious obstacle to the project in the form of amendments to the Third Energy Package, which threaten to leave the pipeline half empty.

Taken together, all this means that with a probability close to 100%, Nord Stream-2 will not start working on January 1. The well-known Russian expert in the field of energy, Igor Yushkov, comments on the current situation:

If the pipeline does not work by January 1, it will not work by March 1. And then there’s no reason to rush, because the road is a spoon for dinner. Gazprom needed this gas pipeline to ensure the second part of the heating season in Europe, especially in the context of a possible lack of transit through Ukraine.


The bypass gas pipeline almost certainly “flies” past the winter heating season in Europe, and then gas consumption is objectively reduced. This means that the United States won a serious interim victory, and Gazprom partners in Kiev and Brussels will be able to twist their hands even more by imposing long-term transit agreements on unfavorable conditions and obligations to repair and maintain a dilapidated Ukrainian gas transportation system.

    If in Russia a normal one, oriented to the state and citizens, power, and not like the current ones — to your own pocket, then she would say:

    Europe, these are your problems, you spoil it yourself - it’s freezing itself!

    These, the current ones, will not say that - they feel a sense of pride in the country, respect for it, for the people, unknown. They are only loot / yachts / expensive whores / villas in Tuscany are interested. Vorie ...

      Do not worry so much about my country, and even more so for pride.
      Gazprom's planning horizon is somewhat wider than one heating season, there will be a holiday on our street, this is the first.
      Second, will Gazprom give permission to cross its pipelines? And where will the Poles get their gas?

      You think about it, my dear "non-brother" ...... lol

In this situation, it was possible a long time ago to solve all the issues of Ukrainian transit, SP-2, and the Danish kingdom. And you feed us breakfast and spit wipe ...
        You, as in the famous expression:

        The cynics and prudes are disgusting, and the hypocrites are simply disgusting that they will never admit mistakes and mistakes made ...
        Pick up the materials, bury your nose in them and read where it was written in white by the Russians that the deadlines for the delivery of SP-2 (even in the spring) can be broken ... But the summer has passed, the bloated cheeks have burst ... Some strange Denmark, which Kuzbass covers like a bull to a sheep, dares to dictate the conditions of the Russian power with its armed forces and power. And, funny (if bitterly), the bulk of the population cannot understand this ... But understanding is not required here. Everything is in full view. A bunch of those who have taken power and power in the country, and having taken up natural resources, just DEPENDENT from any country within the EU. Because they are nobody in this EU ...

          The thing is that the tasks are all solved, but there is a category of citizens - like you and the author of the article - who advance, without delving into the details - why? - they carry nonsense, being absolutely sure that everything is bad, and it will be even worse ... I would like to advise such gentlemen to go and shoot ourselves, so as not to torment ourselves and not to torment others .. Well, if you change your mind, there’s a beautiful one down on the branch analytical analysis of the situation by Marcinkiewicz. Work your soul at least once, listen and try to find counterarguments for his arguments. If you find what I very much doubt.

          The orthodox in you gives out "national heritage". But the life paradigm has long been different. No need to moan and dream that "the bull will cover the sheep." Projects in Russia are being implemented on a massive scale, and not everyone can understand them as a whole. But the country only strengthens its role as a leading energy power and no one is able to move it, except in unhealthy dreams.
          Gazprom and its partners did everything to provide their customers in Europe in the winter season.
          Than it’s worthless to blame anyone for stealing, try to sell your part of the “public domain”. And lamentations only annoy - students are more intelligent, try not to look stupid ....

    There is no decisive and firm tough position ... Gazprom needs to say firmly -

    If you don’t want cheap gas, don’t; in winter you will freeze and tighten the valve. "

    You pull the pipeline to them, so that there is cheap gas in Europe, but they still break, conditions are set - how, so what. They will freeze in winter - they will build a gas pipeline.

      Now there are no pipes that can pass gas from Norway in those latitudes where this route is planned by the Poles.
      All pipes of these technical specifications were bought by Russia, and established their own production.

    Seriously, no one was counting on the fact that the second stream will participate in the current heating season. Its construction itself strengthens the negotiating position of Russia, and strengthens very significantly ... An article from the series "Chef, mustache is gone, the plaster is removed, the client leaves !!! It has been known for a long time that commissioning and reaching full capacity will take about six months. One year is not God knows how long, and under European law, transit is possible without a contract. Kiev simply has no right to ban it. The author deserved two.

    Professional expert Marcinkiewicz perfectly explained the status and prospects of Gazprom in relation to Nord Stream-2 and gas contracts with Europe.



    In short:

    European Commissioner Shefchovich admits that from 01.01.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX "Naftogaz" in the legal field of gas supplies through Bandera does not exist.
    Any khokhlo-legal entity created to replace one of the three options for unbundling will be required to put up transit capacity for an open tender.
    The tender proposal for the Euro-rules must be valid for at least 2 months.
    Any participant can reserve any arbitrarily small amount of gas pumping for any period of time.
    The entire decrease in pumping for Opal is offset by an increase in pumping for Nel and Yamal-Europe. Gazprom’s structures were virtually unaffected, some of the transit payments were redistributed from the Czechs to the Poles.

    Ha ... - Personally, in the topic "Russia voiced the conditions for preserving gas transit through Ukraine" dated September 20, 2019 ... I already wrote about this ... - here are excerpts:

    Ah, that's how ... - confused, confused and finally confused ...
    - What is it ... now it will be necessary to create some other dill "new gas structure", which will be specifically, as a legal entity, responsible for the dill gas pipes ... and ... and ... and ... and already at this "new structure", supposedly Russia should (as they say) already "buy back the necessary capacities of the gas transmission system (GTS) of Ukraine in order to carry out short-term and medium-term gas supplies" ...

    - This is soooo ... - Besides the fact that Russia must supply gas, it also needs to buy part of the rotten ukropov pipeline for this ... - Well ... we arrived ...
    - And then, after Russia carries out "short and medium-term gas supplies" .., then ... Russia can again sell this pipeline back to this new ukropovskoy structure .., so what ???
    - Or Russia, having bought these "necessary capacities of the gas transmission system (GTS) of Ukraine to provide short-term and medium-term gas supplies", then it will simply be doomed to conclude a long-term agreement (ten years) on the supply of Russian gas through Ukraine ( and even repair the pipeline at its own expense) ... - the only way it looms ...
    - No, but this is already from the region ...
    - Yes, it’s not even just “another trap” for Gazprom ... - it’s just such a divorce ... that even there are no words ...
    -That even the price of gas itself becomes "not important" ... - Although, probably, Gazprom is also "bent" at the price, as they please, these "European partners" ... - Well ...

    - What other comments are needed ...

      It should be noted that if Ukraine does include European energy standards in its legislation, i.e. Since it will act as a member of the European Energy Community, it will be required to conduct auctions to reserve its transit capacities. In this case, it will be possible to dispense with the transit agreement for some time. It will be quite simple for the Russians to redeem the necessary capacities of the gas transmission system (GTS) of Ukraine in order to carry out short-term and medium-term gas supplies.

      This does not mean buying the pipeline itself, but pumping services. yes
      Hence the cons. What do you want? request

        That's right, a colleague - about the 3rd energy package, everything is like B. Martsinkevich says / watch video /.

        So it turns out that this is not “Nord Stream 2” flying past the Geyropeisky heating season / if you read S.Marzhetskogo /, and the Geyropeisky heating season flying past “Nordstream 2”, as Bulgaria once flew .... how plywood over Paris.

        And it’s not just heating that matters. Speaking of garlic ..... stop

        Deutsche needs, like air, cheap gas raw materials for the chemical industry and fuel for the automotive industry, and this is a significant contribution to its GDP and not only it, but the entire EU gas-consuming industry.

        What about agriculture?

        After all, it also consumes gas raw materials and fuel on a larger scale.

        Gas heating is only seeds.

          You do not know by chance, in 11,6% of LNG Russian is also included? Or is it calculated in 40,3%?

            No, not included.
            LNG is a separate topic for discussion.

            Information: - the floating regasification terminal “Marshal Vasilevsky”, OJSC “Gazprom” surpassed from Kaliningrad to Geyropa.
            Why do you think so?



            Correct: - Extra power for Geyropa, in case.
            firsthave a cold winter.

      For us, ordinary people, what to worry about? Or are you from crap?
      I'm on the topic ........ laughing

      After about 3 months, frost will come, gas will not be enough, Eurogays will quickly understand where they have energy security, this is the first.
      The second, and who will give the scoundrels permission to cross Nord Stream at "1"?
      And what will they fill their "Pipe" with?
      There is no more gas in Geyrop, therefore they are pulling the second string from Russia, and they will pull the second string through Turkey.

      Only after the completion of Nord Stream 2 and the signing of the Bandera’s transit agreement with Russia on Russian terms will it be possible to conduct a purely hypothetical conversation about the underwater gas pipeline from Norway to Podlachina.

      How else? Nothing personal, just business .......

      As for the current heating season, this is a problem for Germany and the EU.
      Bandera will sign a Euro-energy package / watch a video from Boris Martsinkevich / and after that no one will talk to them.
      And if they don’t sign it, all the more so there’s nothing to talk to them about: no gas transit, dispense with the Bandera rotten gas transportation system.

      Checkmate. Even nobody will offer these fragments of the “Commonwealth”.
      And dreams of "Polish triple sea" coupled with the Sumerian past Ukrainians let him stick in ....

      Who gas - he dances Germany, beside her nervously smoking with her expensive shale gas to the side of the USA and non-European island Britain standing with outstretched hands.

    Personally, I in the topic "Why Gazprom has already lost in the gas war" of September 17, 2019 already wrote:

    No, well ... - a wonderful, objective article based on real-life events and on the facts "already taking place" ...
    - It was written directly in unison to all my comments I wrote earlier on this "Gazprom theme" ...
    - At the same time as everyone who is not too lazy to drum here is lounging ... - all these "gas events", nevertheless, develop exactly "according to my scenario" ...

    - Well, what turned out to be wrong and what (to my great regret) went wrong as I had already envisioned and stated here and already many times ???
    - The traps for Gazprom, about which I have already written many times ... - began to fire one after another ... - And which "ambushes" still lie ahead ...
    - How many problems will add the Turkish Stream (gas pipeline) and the Chinese Stream - that is, the Power of Siberia gas pipeline ...
    - Alas ... - I don’t even want to continue ...

    Europe itself has created problems for the upcoming heating season.
    Damn with that profit. You have to bend your line. And breaking the gay people across the knee. am

      Yes, they don’t need to be broken ... Judging by the latest speeches by Shefchovich, they themselves are tired of all this Ukrainian-Polish-American plug ... They need reliable transit, not problems.

    In any negative situation, there is a positive one. And it is not known what will come out on top. Why, as it has already happened, candebobers with transit and theft will not show at the end of what they are capable of, and the Germans will freeze no longer? And the liquefied gas estimated by the brothers (for Europeans) from across the ocean will not show what they are capable of, taking advantage of the situation, and exposing the true reason for the “friendship” of the Yankees with the Ukrainians? Take in ticks already naughty Europe? There is nothing final. Wait and see.

    Pyrrhic victory in tightly holding the hand (where). Americans are sitting in a double trap - not a pipe, so gas carriers (ours). Long live spot trading without am. intermediaries! An interesting party is unfolding.

    The idea that the Poles played alongside Gazprom in Russia because the Slavs themselves was sounded touching in the mouth of the expert (in the video).)
    Gazprom has several foreign companies, including Americans. All this large and small division of the "pipe" is constantly and for a long time carried out. Here, apparently, they came to conditions convenient for all, except Ukraine. All political brawls and the concentration of NATO ground forces in this region are precisely because of energy resources.
    And the United States, of course, wants to lead the process, and they are unlikely to back down - they just went into the shadows, snatching the lion's share in various ways, through all kinds of channels. And the militarians on our borders, apparently, will put pressure so that the participants in the process do not relax and are supple.

    Nord Stream 2 in Europe flies past the heating season.

    A Nord Stream past 50% OPAL.

    ... Gazprom will remain dependent on Ukraine, at least in the next 2020, which will continue to dictate its transit conditions.

    Roles have changed. Now Ukraine is twisting its hands to Gazprom. And does it successfully.

    This means that the United States won a serious interim victory.

    But did anyone doubt that?
