Merkel's rescue operation of Nord Stream-2 failed

The chancellor of Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, ended up trying to get Nord Stream-2 out of the EU’s gas directive, which prohibits Gazprom from using more than 50% of the pipe’s capacity.




As the RIA News", most German parliamentarians refrained from supporting the bill initiated by the ruling coalition during a vote on the night of Thursday to Friday. As a result, having received only 133 votes instead of the 355 required, the parliament could not make a decision.

According to the rules in force in the German parliament, consideration is postponed to the next meeting, however, this issue is not mentioned on the Friday agenda.

Recall that the bill proposed to change the concept of “completion of the project” and consider it not the actual completion of construction, but the date of the last investment, which in the case of Nord Stream-2 was made before the adoption of the EU Gas Directive.

Despite the fact that the bill has not been passed, there is another opportunity to circumvent the EU Gas Directive.

The fact is that the measures provided for by the directive concern only the final part of the gas pipeline - a stretch of 12 nautical miles. They require different companies to be the owner and supplier of gas for it.

According to German publications, Gazprom has already created an enterprise that formally will be the owner of this section of the pipeline, and will work on the implementation of this scheme.

    This is until the gas shortage has appeared in the EU and gas prices have not started to rise (LNG is much more expensive than pipe gas) ... When gas prices begin to hit affordably, EU countries will become much more accommodating ... Especially since all sorts of Netherlands in The EU does not weigh anything and only the Wishlist of Washington, standing behind their backs, voices ... Let's see what will happen to the Netherlands with rising gas prices ... People can take to the streets and the government will become very uncomfortable ...

      good Figwams (ultimatums) can be drawn by a country that has gas. If you don't like it, let everyone "blow" into this pipe with all the kagal ... Miller should have told the EU long ago that after 01.01.2020 there will be no transit through the Ukrainian pipe, with all the ensuing consequences. Let them put Denmark in a pose, let them collect firewood, if ... fool

    Here's how to build when it is not legally clear who will be the owner? Indeed, out of the blue we create our own problems! And does someone else think Miller and Novak are good leaders?

      Problems are created not by us, but by us. Or do you think that transit through Ukraine, which is trying to dictate its terms to us, with the support of the EU, is a blessing? Let's launch Turkish Stream and Power of Siberia, complete the SP-2 and see what happens next. It would be nice to have a cold winter to complete the picture.

    The deficit, and the most severe, landslide, may occur already on January 1, 2020, when the dill pipe is closed. No liquid penguin supplies will save Europe from the winter cold. Neither gas carriers will be enough, nor the capacity for transporting slurry.

    - Ha ...
    - Finally, it began to reach the venerable website visitors .. that I personally would have been repeating for a very long time ... -And about the stupid Gazprom, and about that dead end, trap, the trap where this Gazprom itself climbed ... -Now it has become obvious ...
    - Only for a long time did you get to the truth, until you buried in the fact that I personally was tired of repeating ...
    - Yes, today stupid Gazprom has brought the entire gas pipeline policy of Russia to a paradoxical situation ...
    - And one of the paradoxes is that now Russia itself becomes necessary gas transit through the territory of Ukraine (personally, I already spoke about this in two topics) ... -That's how ...

    Russia had long had to declare that on January 1, 2020, transit through Ukraine would cease, regardless of SP-2. And by February 1, all pumping stations will be dismantled towards Ukraine. And Russia will strictly adhere to the rules of the 3rd EU energy package. 50% so 50%, and not% more, what weather conditions would not be.
