Expert: Completion of Nord Stream 2 has lost its meaning


Russian Gazprom for the first time admitted the possibility of freezing or canceling work on Nord Stream 2. In technical terms, it is possible to complete the construction of the facility, but due to US sanctions and probable losses for investors, the completion of SP-2 loses its financial sense.


According to the former head of the Russian financial department and ex-chairman of the Central Bank, Sergei Aleksashenko, Nord Stream 2 will not be able to function under US sanctions. And in order to save itself from the likelihood of litigation on the part of investors, in its memorandum, Gazprom, apparently, indicated the existence of such risks.

The expert believes that the latest sanctions restrictions by the American authorities have left no outlet for the Russian pipeline, and there is a high probability that the SP-2 will not be launched - international companies will not insure the pipeline.

Russia can complete the construction of the pipeline on its own (if Denmark and Germany do not revoke their permits), but this pipeline cannot be put into operation until the US sanctions are lifted

- the expert noted.

Refusal to launch the JV-2 could lead to big losses - Gazprom will lose about 5 billion euros, profit and income of shareholders will decrease. For ten years, the amount of dividends lost to the Russian budget will amount to 125 million euros, and in total, during this period, Gazprom will lose about 10 billion euros.

        Are you glad? Our president is a military man. And with this quality, many of his fans "trump". But they forget one fact. Who did he swear to and whom did he promise to protect? And you, a woman, do you see you love and respect traitors and traitors?

    For ten years, the amount of dividends lost to the Russian budget will amount to 125 million euros, and over this period Gazprom will lose about 10 billion euros.

    Divide. The estimated annual budget return is 0,125%. Less than dollar inflation. Much less than 13% of income.

    It looks like a clean divorce. Or something is not right.

    (That is, this is all for stuffing the pockets of the owners. Theoretically, without taking into account the state ownership of the company, the effect on the budget is minimal.)
    Toto has been trumpeting about him for years in the media. (as now about the unnamed) - a pure smokescreen of stuffing the pockets of the "forge of the Kremlin personnel" (125 million versus 10 billion - 1% over 25 years)

    Academician Chersky again stood over the pipe. Nearby the ship Fortuna became from the other end. The supply fleet was grouped near the port of Mukran (supply port). 6 of them were spotted. Well, our icebreaker was also spotted there. There is also a ship without AIS. I watch the whining of the evil steelworkers and other abominations. In my opinion there is a great sinking of America. How are they losers?

      Yes, it is Gazprom and America's fans who have lowered themselves to indecency with this SP-2. Fans only have to state the facts! And there is no more education! Mediocrity !!!

    Here, in another thread, they wrote about the pipe diversion to Kaliningrad. I'll tell you. His (branch) was built. Meanwhile, Christophe de Morgerie has successfully completed the pipeline of LNG gas along the NSR. Let's give a pat on a good undertaking.

    Well, it must be determined somehow. The news changes three times every day. By evening, there will be news again, the Nord Stream will be completed, and the next morning the project will be frozen. If you look at the chronology, then this news has already changed ten times (I generally keep quiet about the maneuvers of ships and barges, they cannot be tracked, they come and go)

    The soap opera series Pipe to the stream - 2. Place your bets gentlemen. Send money to the account .... Until at the top of the meeting, the maneuvers are useless. In the system where Russia got in, the Americans are the owners. We play on their field according to their rules. Or dive under them, or build our own system

    In Gazprom, people are certainly smarter than the sofa analysts.
    The article just gives a mile away with the softening of the discussion.

    The author writes nonsense. For today, the main thing is to complete the construction of Nord Stream 2, to carry out commissioning and to fill the gas pipeline with gas. After that, an insurer for the finished gas pipeline will certainly be found. Why not take a Russian insurer? After all, the documents do not say whose insurer
    In terms of the volume of industrial exploitation of the gas pipeline, it seems that there will be limitations of course. But this is at the first stage. The cheaper and safer to operate pipe gas will still make its way. Business laws say - buy cheaper, sell more.
    Gazprom has already started drying gas storage facilities in Europe. In late summer, Europe will start to get nervous before the winter period. And I think in the fall the green light will be given to Nord Stream -2 for fast gas injection into European gas storage facilities.
    Of course, there will be a lot of sticks in the wheels until autumn. The main thing is to finish building faster.

    Everyone has long understood that it will not be possible to complete the construction of the SP-2, let alone put it into operation, but they were afraid to say nothing to the main builder, for whom this is a very personal matter, and now it will be another fiasco. By the way, on business, he (SP-2) is not needed, tk. to ensure the transportation of the required volumes of gas with confidence, the existing gas pipeline capacities are sufficient, and even in excess. Another money wasted. But we're not used to it, right?

    The West screamed that Europe would become a hostage of Russia because of SP-2, but Russia itself became a hostage. Now our elite endures everything: diplomatic chaos, rudeness, direct interference and cannot blather in response. there will be sanctions. The sultan cut off at the end and declared the Crimea Turkish territory! Climbed into the Caucasus and what? Where is the official reaction? It is not and will not be because Erdogan controls another pipe!
    So what did Russia get from these pipes? Tied hands and gagged!
    And half of our own territory is not supplied with gas! Make gas available to your citizens and get no less guaranteed income. But the shareholders of Gazprom are not inclined to work long and voted against the gasification of remote areas and FOR the accrual of dividends !!!
    Oil and gas production are strategic industries. The more painful for the country are strategic mistakes in the choice of partners and in the assessment of risks and consequences.
