Gazprom forced to record gas prices in Europe


According to PJSC Gazprom, in January 2020, the volume of transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine decreased by 70%. At the same time, PJSC Gazprom sold a record amount of gas through its electronic trading platform (ETP).


It should be noted that according to the information of the head of the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine LLC Sergey Makogon, transit through Ukrainian territory in the indicated time amounted to only 2,55 billion cubic meters. m. Moreover, in accordance with the terms of the new (five-year) contract, transit was paid at the rate of 5,518 billion cubic meters. m. He said that "paid capacity used by 46%."

In this newspaper "Vedomosti" informed the public that the gas sold through the ETP of PJSC Gazprom was much cheaper for European buyers than under long-term pipeline contracts. It is emphasized that competitors from among the suppliers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) allegedly forced the Russians to lower prices.

It should be noted that the allegations “that the LNG suppliers forced” look extremely doubtful. After all, LNG is much more expensive than pipeline gas.

According to Vedomosti, in January 2020, 3,86 billion cubic meters were sold through ETP. m of gas, of which 2,2 billion cubic meters. m - with delivery in the same month. It is specified that the total export of PJSC Gazprom to Europe during this time decreased by a quarter. It amounted to 13,3 billion cubic meters. m. Thus, PJSC Gazprom sold 16,5% of the total volume through the spot market. The average price was $ 137 per 1 thousand cubic meters. m of gas.

Moreover, from Interfax noted that the average cost of the same volume of gas under long-term contracts is $ 204,7 per 1 thousand cubic meters. m. That is, it is one third more expensive. But in 2019, the average gas price at which Gazprom sold it amounted to $ 162,4 per 1 cubic meters. m

According to some Russian experts, PJSC Gazprom never sold as much gas through the spot market, and they are surprised at what is happening. For example, in 2019, only 14,1 billion cubic meters were sold on the spot market. m. At the same time, few of them pay attention to the fact that PJSC Gazprom has indeed begun to develop its trading platform, which competitors are not happy about. Some experts generally believe that PJSC Gazprom does not have a well-thought-out development strategy. Although it is doubtful that PJSC Gazprom may have problems, because prices are steadily above $ 100 per 1 cubic meters. m

By the way, there is nothing surprising in the above. The mild winters and the huge volumes of gas that Europeans stockpiled before are the main reasons for the fall in prices.

        For gas in a comfortable I personally threw 500 rubles into the account and more than six months, I have an overpayment (there is a meter). For those who have central heating, the prices for heat in the battery are more relevant. And since I know firsthand about housing and communal services tariffs, an increase in the heat tariff is expected to be much higher than an increase in the fuel component. Those who have their own gas boiler will still be a plus compared to comfortable ones. Further, I’m wanging the withdrawal of heat and hot water to independent utilities (by analogy with the removal of solid waste) - there is simply nothing to restrain the growth index of housing and communal services. This spring will soon give a forehead, this business has been unprofitable before, but over the years, generation and networks do not become newer. Electrician rejuvenated herself with gas turbine megawatts for 10-20 years (supported by the German manufacturer, thanks to Siemens), and then what kind of capitalist (read - grabber) will invest in a loss-making social sphere? Yes, no one. The officials have only one answer: - Here is the instruction from Baron Munchausen on how to drag yourself by the hair from the swamp.

          You have noticed how we all together are moving from gas prices in the European market to our domestic utilities tariffs. smile Apparently, the problems of pricing in the European gas market are not the most urgent problem. winked
          PS The boiler is a thing I recommend. good

            The "free market" is the same. There sales are falling, it is necessary to compensate. The sweetie that the capitalists want here and now is taken away from those who will not resist .... and if they are, the Rosguard will explain to them that the authorities will be blamed for it. At 00:00, as in Slepakov’s song, they will again sing “This year was difficult for us ...” and come up with a new idea how to compensate for this time.

              You can resist in different ways, try switching to renewable energy, now it is said to be fashionable now. But seriously, gas delivery to the consumer also costs money, in the end, there is inflation. Of course, you can stupidly subsidize this, in the end it will be approximately the same as in the housing and communal services. What no economic feasibility should be supported. Therefore, in my opinion, + 18 kopecks. per cubic meter - insufficient motive for the construction of barricades and throwing stones at the Russian Guard.

      Does your grandfather drive around your apartment on a moped or does he have two villages registered? I fit into about 3,5 - 4 thousand, depending on the flow of water.

        Is it either far from Moscow or vice versa close?
        Either they do not tear, or subsidies.

            So, do not tear. It seems that Muscovites also have this amount, but they have subsidies from the city. To pensioners - yes, everywhere 50%, I do not consider.

    Not only mild winters and large reserves. It is necessary to take into account the desire to dislodge the desire to drag liquefied gas to Europe. At that price, penguins have nothing to do in Europe.

    In 1986, I paid 5 rubles. Now from 500 to 1,5 thousand, depending on the temperature in the street. Heating, hot water and a gas stove are their own. So what? With his desires, is it not time to go to the Stone Age through a time machine? Everything is free there.

    The rate of gas consumption per person is 25 cubic meters. m, in the US 125. This is so, for comparison. Now we multiply 18 kopecks by 25, we get 4 rubles 50 kopecks. And if the family is 3 people. And if it’s not money for you, I can print my card number and you will compensate that money to the poor STALOVAR with each tariff increase every month. Instead of power. Do you agree?

      The rate of gas consumption per person is 25 cubic meters. m, in the US 125. This is so, for comparison.

      Why is this comparison? Do you have enough gas? So no one limits, take at least 250.

      Now 18 kopecks. multiply by 25, we get 4 rubles. 50 kopecks And if the family is 3 people.

      It will turn out 13 rubles. 50 kopecks Is this a prohibitive amount? In addition, it is not clear why we multiply by three? Is the family separately heated? Each his own room? Or cook separately?

      And if it’s not money for you, I can print my card number and you will compensate that money to the poor STALOVAR with each tariff increase every month. Instead of power. Do you agree?

      It reminds me of something.



      PS Free advice - you will print the card number, do not forget to indicate the expiration date and the verification code on the back. winked Do not thank. hi
