Semi-empty gas storage facilities and LNG outflow puts Europe in a difficult position on the eve of winter

Opposition by the United States, Poland, Ukraine and some other countries to the construction of Nord Stream 2 may "backfire" on the Europeans with a shortage of gas and its probable rise in price on the eve of the new winter season.

According to journalists "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", in the event of a harsh winter, Europe will have to “thank” for the energy problems those who initiated sanctions and other prohibitive measures in relation to the new Russian gas pipeline. Completion of SP-2 has been delayed for almost two years, and even if the pipeline is completed by the end of this summer, gas prices for Europeans will rise anyway. Testing and certification of the gas route will take another 3-4 months, during which residents of the Old World may experience a shortage of "blue fuel".

Aleksey Grivach, deputy head of the National Energy Security Fund, believes that the situation will be aggravated by the outflow of American liquefied natural gas to Asian markets, where the price of fuel is higher. Thus, in a situation of gradual abandonment of nuclear energy and coal in favor of greener of technologies gas storage facilities in Europe will remain half empty.

The expert believes that in the event of a delay in the start of the operation of the SP-2 on the energy markets of Europe, a sharp rise in the price of "blue fuel" will begin, which on the eve of winter will put Europeans in a difficult position.

      Have you heard of the sleigh and the cart? The storage facilities cannot be filled in two days.

        Many people simply have problems with long-term memory.

        About the same they wrote about half a year ago, and a year, and two and three ...
        It is necessary to write about something. So it goes: gas went / did not go / went / did not go / went / did not go / ... 3 times weekly ...

    Truncated according to plan.

    Suddenly a magician will arrive,
    In a blue gas carrier
    And show the figs for free
    Congratulate on the cold of winter
    And, probably, will leave
    They will be given a gift to smell the SPolGram.

    Everybody dance...
