Will push: the United States begins the "Iranian scenario" for our country


Towards the end of the year, the US Congress passed new sanctions on Nord Stream 2. At the same time, the Americans themselves recognize their senselessness: the gas pipeline is almost complete and will begin to work in a few months next year. So what then is the United States seeking?


Despite their apparent absurdity, these preparations look very sinister for Russia. Washington directly makes it clear to the Kremlin and its European partners that it will “crush” any projects of Gazprom and other domestic energy companies. Given their importance for replenishing the federal budget, news bad.

Pipeline gas


The Americans, along with their allies, managed to ensure that the constructed Nord Stream 2 should be half empty. Germany, in turn, is looking for loopholes, it might find, but, instead of stable operation, the gas pipeline will be constantly in limbo, and its functioning will be determined in the “manual mode”.

Theoretically, it is possible to compensate for the lost capacities of Nord Stream-2 and the Ukrainian GTS at the expense of Nord Stream-3. But it will be long, expensive, and half of its capacity according to the norms of the Third Energy Package will again be idle. The current US sanctions, according to some experts, are directed against new Russian pipelines to Europe. Perhaps it is not so bad that such dubious adventures are nipped in the bud.

LNG


The purpose of Washington’s pressure on Gazprom is to promote American liquefied natural gas to the European market. The role of LNG in the EU energy balance has increased dramatically over the past ten years; special receiving terminals have been built along the coast. Obviously, the importance of LNG for Europe and the whole world will only increase further.

But for Russia, this shines with yet another problem. It is not only about serious competition to its pipeline gas. LNG projects exist in our country. However, US sanctions clearly have as their goal a blow to this segment of the domestic energy sector. Expert Dmitry Abzalov explains:

There are big risks in a sector such as liquefied natural gas, as LNG plants already operating in Russia use foreign Technology liquefaction. Equipment used in Russia is imported from America, France, Britain - and all transactions are carried out in the dollar zone.


The ban on the import of such technologies into Russia will be a serious blow to LNG projects, which can slow down their development for a long time. Therefore, the "LNG-holiday" can go around our street.

Finally, we must understand the deep meaning of this New Year's “greetings” from Washington. The United States makes it clear to Europe that it intends to tighten the noose around the neck of Russian energy projects in general. In other words, this is the beginning of the “Iranian scenario” for our country, where sanctions for the purchase of domestic energy resources may be the end.

    ... the end may be sanctions for the purchase of domestic energy resources.

    In his Munich speech, Putin has already answered this question:

    What will you drown? Firewood. So we also have firewood in Siberia ...

    Americans also buy LNG from us.
    You yourself have repeatedly written that all these are dishonest techniques in the competition, including with the Europeans. It seems that Trump will finally destroy the Euro-Atlantic alliance, and this is good. Folk Wisdom:

    No enemy is more dangerous than a former friend.

      A crush appropriate sizes grown? How did they push Kim's denuclearization?
      You have been telling us here for a long time about the shale revolution, then they are about to fill up with cheap LNG, they will not let us finish building pipelines, and if they do, they will be half empty, and if not empty, nobody will buy gas anyway, we’ll get the equipment for us no one will sell and in general everything is bad. Maybe you should drink antidepressants? You look better. smile

        Yes, they will not overwhelm with anything. By the 20th year they plan to increase exports to 98 billion cubic meters. Maybe they will increase, only they export half of this volume. The remaining 50-60 billion cubic meters is not enough to replace 200 billion delivered from Russia to Europe.

    - Well, with the Americans, and so it was all clear before ... -Or, for someone, is this the discovery of America ???
    - But what is the difference between China and "this America" ​​in this respect ???
    - And China "in this respect" differs from America from the fact that America presses Russia with sanctions from the outside and openly declares this ...
    - And China is crushing Russia both from the outside and from the inside (it eats out from the inside) .., and it doesn’t bother to let the whole world know about it ... -and not because China is trying to somehow hide it .. But China just doesn’t bother with such unnecessary problems (secrecy or glasnost) ... -China just acts with Russia in the way that is beneficial to it, and it just does not pay attention to it and does not admit that Russia may have any something their "Russian interests" ... -China has so schooled Russia in this regard that many Russian leaders and and often they rank high rank have to "think" and "concerned about China's interests" and are ready to fulfill all the orders of the Chinese ...
    - Here is such Chinese pressure on Russia from the outside and "eating out from within" ...
    - And all these American sanctions ... just ........................................ ...............

    Washington directly makes clear to the Kremlin and its European partnersthat "will crush" any projects of Gazprom and other domestic energy companies. Given their importance for replenishing the federal budgetа, [RF] the news is bad.

    But the Kremlin and gas-Proms “nano-iksperdy” and other “many-hodovodniki" that could not have foreseen this?
    They did not know that there were no "partners" at all?
    They did not know that sitting on the "oil and gas" (life-giving!) Needle is worthless for a country with the BIGGEST territory in the world?
    They thought that "the partners wilt, and sit on the same pope" (as it was after Georgia 2008)?
    And were guided by the stupid Russian proverb “You're lying, you won’t take”?

    Finally, you need to understand the deep meaning of this New Year's “hello” from Washington. USA directly make clear to Europe that intend to tighten the noose around the neck of Russian energy projects in general. In other words, this is the beginning of the “Iranian scenario” for our country, where the end may be sanctions for the purchase of domestic energy

    Yes, that's right.
    And the Kremlin "nano-iksperdy" look as if they had "raped".
    Yes, and why "as if"? This is a medical fact.

    And this is the essence of the main claim to Putin - The Russian Federation both sat on the oil-gas-dollar needle at EBN, and continued to sit on it under the Infallible.
    Moreover, it sank on this needle much deeper.

      UpperMost (Innocent), finally understand that it’s Sergey Marzhetsky who begins the “Iranian scenario” for our country, not the United States. He constantly starts something. We are already used to it.

    And he, one must think, forced the company out of the Sev project. Stream 2 recently stop pipe laying?
    And will he pay 3 billion to Ukraine from his pocket?
    No, he just knows how to admit mistakes and mistakes of his country.
    And reasonably resents about this.
    So he is a patriot of his country. And not the "all-soothing" note troll.

    Maybe gas will reach the Russians? - and then everything about Germany is busy. As if the vanquished would not freeze and the energy intensity of the goods would not increase if the "Brigade" were so concerned about Russia ..

    It is trite and 100500 times said: not to drive raw materials over the hill, but to process at home. Instead of building half-empty pipelines and keeping afloat the industry of Russophobic Europe, we need our own Khimprom, so much so that Western sanctions go through the woods. You can’t endlessly rely on mushrooms and deadwood.
