SP-2 is sacrificed: experts on how Gazprom outwitted Washington


The Russian special pipe-laying vessel Akademik Chersky arrived in the area of ​​Bornholm Island, to the place where the “ends” of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline lie under the Baltic Sea. However, this does not mean at all that the infamous second line of the pipeline will be built, especially in the near future. Experts hired by the Danish publication Jyllands-Posten talked about a new look at the epic "Academician Chersky" and the goals of his idle movements.


Distraction


According to experts, Russia is not the USSR, it does not have the influence and independence that its predecessor had. Moscow is afraid of Washington’s sanctions. No matter how officials in the Kremlin flaunted their muscles and statements, one has to take into account the pressure factor from overseas. Especially in the era of the global crisis.

Experts note that Gazprom lost the legal “battle for the pipe” in Europe (applying the EU gas directive and rejecting the appeal), but it drove the pipe-laying vessel to the place where the ends of the pipeline were “buried”. The long voyage of the "Academician Chersky" is started in order not to weaken for a second the attention of the whole world, riveted to the scandalous pipeline.

In this way, Gazprom is trying to save the rest of its business and projects, testing the patience of American lawmakers, who promised to introduce new ones. economic restrictions not only for SP-2, but also against any country that wishes to participate in completion or to receive fuel from the highway. Moscow confused ship movements and imitation of the activities of the pipe layer, trying to provoke Washington in retaliation.

Simply put, SP-2 is sacrificed, because at the present scanty demand and low gas price, Gazprom does not need a pipeline at all.

How did you outwit the USA


All of these convulsive movements of Gazprom, which is suffering enormous losses on all fronts, brought the company one modest but significant victory. Last week, it became known that the first line of the Nord Stream pipeline was removed from the EU gas directive. Legal disputes on this issue have been completed in favor of Russia.

Experts note that Gazprom was able to squeeze the most out of the situation - to get a fully operational pipeline with maximum load without additional investment without new sanctions. So, the “Nord Stream-2” lying dead weight has already paid for itself in some way, fulfilling its unusual role perfectly, analysts summarized.

        Six months will pass, and 38 million unemployed will format the brains of American lawmakers so that they forget both SP-2 and China. Or congressmen will run to ask consultants in the same Gazprom, as in the good times of Clinton. Like, you pay me, but I look away in Congress ... Lobbying is called!

          Well, actually, it’s just a translation of the article with slight amendments. And the opinion here is presented not by the person who published the article, but by Danish experts. And this must be taken into account. And what great experts in the West about Russia, we already know.

            So the bazaar is filtered by a specific author of the site. And the Americans have lost their sense of reality. We got used to focusing on the level of transactions of SWIFT and different Cards. But the blocking of Russian regions and the impudent misappropriation of money from Russian defense enterprises led to the creation of their own payment systems. From the American point of view, this looks like a sharp drop in economic activity every year. On their omniscient servers. Such "knowledge" is presented by "ekperdy" as "ekonomofklochya" and "gazpromfsyo". Which is very appealing to people with undefined social responsibility.

        So you already tried on, just worry about the size?
        Such cool hats are more suitable for those who find such "cool experts", clearly not from economic publications.

        The result of the article is: Gazprom is in full operation according to SP-2, but on the other hand, "the first line of SP-1" has been removed from the EU gas directive. "
        What does it mean when some distribute gas for free - FIG knows. But "one modest but significant victory." Those. "peremoga" of pure water. "Outwitted Washington". Hooray!

        Not a word about the volumes of supplies, nor about the amounts of contracts with the Danes.

    ... at the current scanty demand and low gas price, Gazprom does not need a pipeline at all ..

    Demand will not remain miserable for a long time. The crisis will be followed by the need to catch up. The price, accordingly, will also rise.

    We must not forget that JV and JV-2 are not only Gazprom. There was already a case when Merkel, without thinking, promised the owners, because of a puddle, to start building terminals for receiving "American" LNG. A big uncle from Wintershalle came to the meeting of the Reichstag and explained to the deputies that there are already three LNG terminals on the coast of the North Sea and the English Channel, which have not been loaded by more than 30% for a single day. And the construction of a new terminal for the money of German taxpayers will be appreciated by the electorate. And somehow they immediately forgot about the terminal.
    But Gazprom does not need an urgent solution to this issue, because it will cause an additional reduction in gas prices now, when they rush to the level of urban sewage (after oil).
    They will put SP-2 by the end of the year, then there will be technological steps and tests on the readiness of the pipe and equipment for work. The first year, the gas pipeline will in any case work at half capacity. It should be so.
    But by the end of next year, the big uncles will join in solving this issue. And "smart" analysts (obviously, from the word "anal") will seek an explanation for the fact that this issue was so suddenly and easily resolved.

    What kind of speculative tricks does the current confusion generated by the pandemic and the too obvious insanity of the Americans give rise to. So our hapless "Gazprom" gets it - just have time to turn. But nothing, let's just direct the case, send an answer by mail to all connoisseurs - if we paraphrase an old thug song. In the meantime, let them compete in wit, in unexpected plots, in predictions of the fatal development of events. The dog barks, and ... gas goes through the pipes.

    Gazprom tore off the ship from work on Sakhalin, surpassed it across half the planet, but is not going to finish building it. Academician Chersky will simply turn around there in order to provoke the introduction of new sanctions. And all this so that no one would notice how the Nord Stream began to be exploited 100%?

    - And not only SP-2; but also the "Turkish stream", and all other gas pipelines that are "thrown-forwarded" outside the territory of Russia ... - I personally have been writing about this for a year and a half ... - Somehow it finally began to reach some of the site's inhabitants ...

    All of these convulsive movements of Gazprom, which is suffering enormous losses on all fronts, brought the company one modest but significant victory. Last week, it became known that the first line of the Nord Stream pipeline was removed from the EU gas directive. Legal disputes on this issue have been completed in favor of Russia.

    - Personally, I don't know ... for sure or not; but judging by the fact that this may well work today; according to the principle: "God is on you, what is not good for us" - this and that can become a reality ...
    - Only it is not clear what is the "modest but significant victory" of Gazprom ??? - Well, Gazprom got back what became unnecessary ...

    Experts note that Gazprom was able to squeeze the most out of the situation - to get a fully operational pipeline with maximum load without additional investment without new sanctions.

    - Where does such a "faintly optimistic information" come from ??? - It was Gazprom that engaged some second-rate yellow media in Europe and they broadcast this ???

    So, the “Nord Stream-2” lying dead weight has already paid for itself in some way, fulfilling its unusual role perfectly, analysts summarized.

    Dead cargo will never pay for itself, no matter how much Sergei, hiding under the “Danish analysts”, would like.
    Companies OMV, Wintershall, Shell, Uniper and Engie have invested about € 9,5 billion for the construction of the underwater part. Gazprom invested € 31 billion in construction of land infrastructure (!) And the pipeline itself. And how many hundreds of years will it take to sell gas through SP-1 to pay for the costs of “dead cargo”? And if Gazprom will recoup its costs for SP-2, then it will be forced to recoup costs for European investors too.

      What are you talking about? Where do these numbers come from? What land infrastructure? Land infrastructure from the Yamal-Europe line? Or is the Gryazovets-Vyborg site worth 31 billion euros? Or do you mean a different entry point than SP (1)? Or what ???

    Well? The Germans, Dutch, Swiss, Austrians, Finns invested in the SP-2 in full. Now the completion after the gas price hike is their concern. Gazprom, owned by 49% of Europeans, and out of 51% owned by the Russian Federation, 30 percent sold on the stock exchanges, so the concerns of shareholders also played on the abolition of the EU gas directive and filling SP-1 with 100% gas. Gazprom compensates for the cancellation of the joint venture. 2, which would bring a tangible depreciation of gas. So, building SP-2 now, during the crisis, is more expensive for us.
