Russian gas did not help: fuel prices are rising in Europe


In Europe, there is a further increase in the quotations of natural gas futures. As follows from the data of ICE, the largest energy exchange on the continent, the price of "blue fuel" with deliveries in December reached $ 962,2 per thousand cubic meters.


The growth in the cost of gas is recorded even despite the fact that today, on November 8, Gazprom began filling its own underground storage facilities in Germany and Austria. Such an order back on October 27 given Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting on the development of the resource gas potential of Yamal.

Logically, the market should have responded by lowering the cost of futures, however, apparently, the physical shortage of gas fuel and the desire of European energy companies to stock up on them for the future do not allow prices to fall.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said that only the timely launch of Nord Stream 2 can normalize the price storm on the European gas market. With his opinion agree and the head of Rosneft Igor Sechin, who proposed to promptly send up to 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas to the EU via a new pipeline.

Let us remind you that the first string of Nord Stream 2 has already been filled with gas and is ready to start full-scale operation.

    - Damn, well, personally, I already wrote in the subject

    The reasons for the further rise in gas prices in Europe are named

    what ... what ... what

    - Eh ... - that's how Gazprom (Moscow) "made friends" - that's how Gazprom (Moscow) "made friends" - to the world speculators ... - these prices for Russian gas have been established (one can only dream of this) - anyway ... - here they will profit ... - margin - just shine !!! - But Gazprom itself will strictly adhere to the contract price for its gas ... - and on the spot market - "not by foot" ... - So Gazprom ... - "by the cash register" ...

    - So ... - that; that supposedly ... -

    Russian gas did not help: fuel prices are rising in Europe

    - "Helped", "helped" ... - even how Russian gas (Gazprom) "helped" European speculators, stock brokers and all kinds of world "business crooks-players" who are ready to trade even in air ... - not like Russian gas ... - And, of course - they took advantage of "this gas situation" ... - they earned on this "situation" - to the maximum ... - Well, what can you say ... - and you can't say anything ... - they know how to "take advantage" of the situation !!!
    - But what Gazprom is flapping its ears ... - and in this situation behaves like a sucker (although he is - an eternal loser) - this is absolutely incomprehensible ...
    - And Gazprom in general ... - is it "from Russia" or ... or "from Western Europe" ??? - Just doubt takes ...
