Gazprom's European partner expressed skepticism about resuming construction of SP-2

The head of the Austrian company OMV, one of the investors of the Nord Stream-2 project, expressed doubt that the pipeline would be completed in the near future.

During a press conference, Rainer Seele expressed dissatisfaction with the weakness of the European politicianswho “cannot defend the European the economy from such extraterritorial sanctions ”and added that OMV does not expect an early resumption of work to complete the construction of the gas pipeline:

The project operator, Nord Stream 2, is working on a plan, but so far they are not ready to present it. We do not think that we can expect an early resumption of construction work.

At the same time, the press service of the parliamentary faction of the Left Party issued a statement by the chairman of the German Bundestag Committee on Economics and Energy, Klaus Ernst, in which he urged the FRG government to demand EU duties on liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States if they impose sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 project.

In his statement, Ernst notes that the European companies involved in the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project did not commit anything, they must be sure that Germany will not leave them to their mercy now.

It is difficult to say to what extent Ernst's appeal will have effect, but the very fact of its appearance indicates that dissatisfaction with the US sanctions policy is growing in Europe.

    Oh, funny. laughing The slave wants to raise a hand against the owner. Yes, what the owner orders, then the lackeys from the EU will meekly carry out. A living example: the company that built the Nord Stream 2 - the Americans ordered - they abandoned the building and quickly sailed away, spitting on the reputation, the owner ordered.

    It only indicates that there is democracy in Germany. You can say anything, of course, but the left there are eternal marginals and their opinion there is of little interest to anyone.

    Germany and Europe should abandon the US environmentally "dirty" LNG because it is shale gas produced in the USA by the method of fracking and upon receipt of it, the environment in its places of production sharply worsens due to the pollution of nature by various chemical compounds, and then there for many years neither humans nor animals live, even the plant world disappears there, and all the water is polluted (poisoned) forever.
    Therefore, this American gas is the KILLER of life on Earth and its "dirty" production must impose significant sanctions or prohibit its production in general.
    Europe should not FOLLOW such a predatory attitude of entrepreneurs towards wildlife.

      If politicians in Russia were less tied to cooperation with the United States, they would naturally have taken advantage of the "green" club, accusing the United States of destroying the environment and poisoning the environment with shale oil and gas. It’s a sin not to use the “green lobby” in the EU to avenge the United States for “sticks in wheels” to Gazprom. However, Russian politicians and the Foreign Ministry show their complete helplessness in this matter.
