"This emergency": Poland asked Russia to reduce gas tariffs

The state oil and gas company of Poland PGNiG has sent a request to Gazprom to reduce the prices for the fuel it supplies. All the fault is the uncontrolled jump in the cost of natural gas on the European market, the Poles complain.

As the head of the company Pavel Majewski noted, Poland is faced with an emergency situation in the energy market, which in turn is a reason for Russia to revise its energy prices.

This emergency is the basis for revising the price terms on which we buy fuel under the Yamal contract. In our opinion, there is a place to reduce the price of gas supplied to us

- the Pole declared without any modesty.

The contract between PGNiG and Gazprom operates on a take-or-pay basis and implies the purchase of at least 8,7 billion cubic meters of gas per year. If PGNiG actually acquires less than the agreed volume, the Polish side is still obliged to pay for the unpaid gas. At the same time, the contract does not imply a rigid price peg.

This means that in the context of high prices for fossil fuels, Poland is forced to allocate additional budgetary funds for energy imports. This state of affairs, apparently, does not suit the Poles at all.

    And they are always not satisfied when they have to pay the price, they are always satisfied when for free.
    It was the same in the days of the USSR and Sev.

    Poland announced victory over Gazprom in gas price dispute


    Stockholm arbitration tribunal approves new formula for calculating the price of Russian gas, according to which Gazprom is obliged to return about $ 1,5 billion to the Polish company PGNiG.

    Now the Polish company will pay Gazprom for fuel according to the new price calculation formula, "which is directly related to gas prices in the Western European market"... The court's decision will affect deliveries from November 1, 2014, that is, from the day PGNiG filed an application for revising the contract price, the company said.

    Poland disagrees with the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration? Then you need to return $ 1,5 billion. GazProm paid this fine on June 30, 2020.

      And do not forget the interest and compensation for moral and image damage. And then we will think whether they are worthy of the discount or let them jump for sugrev.

    The contract for the supply of gas to Poland is valid until December 31, 2022. After that, only at exchange prices. So now Poland is probably paying about $ 300 per thousand cubic meters. In a month it will be 700-800. Let them rejoice that it is not 1000.

    Before asking for something from the Russian Federation, it is necessary to offer the Russian Federation something in return, and the Russian Federation is not obliged to supply the Russophobic Poland patient for free.

      It is not profitable. Let them keep it for themselves. Under the new pricing rules, Poland will purchase more than $ 2 billion from Gazprom. In 2022 alone.

      Then the gas price will be tied to oil, i.e. will become lower.
      Let it be in full, they pay a new one, it will be more expensive, and they also have a lesson for the future laughing

    I will not be surprised if our downed Russophobes will make concessions. I used to be surprised at many actions of our leadership, but now I am not surprised at anything.
