Germany explained why the certification of Nord Stream 2 was stopped


The Federal Grid Agency of Germany has stopped the certification process of the joint Russian-German concern Nord Stream 2 AG as an independent operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. As noted by the regulator, the company will be able to obtain a certificate only in the event of its reorganization in accordance with German law.


A press release from the Federal Grid Agency says that Nord Stream 2 AG, being a joint stock company registered in Switzerland, has a subsidiary in Germany, which, according to the documents, manages a part of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline located in Germany. However, in fact, all assets and human resources of the subsidiary remain in Switzerland.

The subsidiary is to become the owner and operator of the German section of the pipeline. The certification procedure will be suspended until the main assets and human resources are transferred to the subsidiary.

- appears in the document.

When these requirements are met, the Federal Network Agency of Germany will be able to renew its expertise, prepare a draft decision and submit it to the European Commission for approval.

Against the background of these News the price of natural gas in Europe began to rise again, while Gazprom shares plunged.

    Against the backdrop of this news, the price of natural gas in Europe began to rise again, while the shares of Gazprom rushed down.

    If so, then it's time for Gazprom or the state to buy up their shares from foreign shareholders. And it's time for Europe to think about locating energy-intensive enterprises in Russia.

    - Hey, gentlemen, smart guys - what do you say about ... about ... about that - "how great Gazprom earned on its supplies" and about who is the "actual owner" of the SP-2, and who is just a "galley slave" ( or "lamp slave" ... or "pipe slave" - ​​that's what you want) ... - It's like in a cartoon ... - "you have roots on you - and I'll take tops for myself" ...
    - I’ll say even more precisely ... - it’s as if ... YOU (Gazprom) pay the losses and fines ... - and we will divide the profit among all ... cute !!!
    - Hey, "smart guys" ... - go ... go ... go and put Germany (and "her whole company") ... - minuses (and more) ... - And Gazprom "put" - how as many advantages as possible ... - maybe something will change ...

      Why are you so worried? Well, the certification procedure was suspended ... so what? Gazprom is quietly getting its revenue from the increased gas price. Europe pays ... Transit capacity is enough to fulfill obligations. There is still a lot of time until 2024. What is the problem? Is it that today we get more money with a smaller volume of gas than last year, and have almost paid off the unused pipe? Well, you definitely - "Grief Nina" repeat ... Sorry to be blunt ...

        - And you - obviously - another "Truffaldino from Bergamo" ???
        - Yes, here and without you - there are enough such "Truffaldins" ...
        - What "profit are you talking about" ??? - When prices for literally everything went up three times (and you had to pay at this price) ... - and you, for your goods and your work, were paid only one and a half times more; Yes, you still paid fines and penalties (and the next next fines and penalties await you) ... - what is that ??? - This is according to you - "profit" ??? - Are you pretending, or what ??? - Europe did not lift a finger - but got everything !!! - And gas, and money, and "part of the property" of Gazprom itself ...
        - And what did Gazprom get ??? - only "funds for food - for its further existence" and in order to continue working for Europe ... - Gazprom was not even allowed to enter the spot market in order to trade its expensive Russian gas ...
        - and now Gazprom is humbly waiting for the SP-2 pipeline to be "certified" ... - Well, it's just laughing!
        - Damn, "strangers" sold expensive Russian gas - the same volume - "three times" - and Gazprom was paid for the same volume - only once, and even Gazprom had to pay fines (and will continue to pay fines) and continue to pay the cost and construction of the entire SP-2 pipe ... - from their "profit" ... - So who benefits from this orgy with Russian gas ??? - And who is the sad sucker ??? - Do you at least think something ??? - And if you don’t think, then don’t meddle in your own business ...
        - Personally, I have here ... here ... here I have already explained everything in rubles and in apples ... - or rather, I tried to explain ...
        - Who is the owner of Russian gas and SP-2 today ??? - Aaaa ???
        - I will answer ... - formally - this is the next today's "Zitspresident Pound", which simply pays all the penalties for everyone ... - this is Gazprom !!! - Well at least - "does not shake time for others" ... - as in "The Golden Calf" ...
        - Such things are happening with our illiterate unprofessional Gazprom ...

          What "profit are you talking about" ???

          Obviously, you are far from the topic. I inform you that Gazprom for 9 months of 2021 reported about 1,05 trillion rubles in net profit (14,3 billion dollars, i.e. more than the cost of the joint venture-2 and payments to Ukraine), with about 500 billion in losses last year. And all from the pocket of Europe. And the year is not over yet. And a drop in gas prices by the end of the heating season is not predicted.

          I have never heard anything more stupid. Gazprom does not need a spot. It is not profitable. Therefore, the SOE works under long-term contracts. But you, as you can see, are not in the subject here either. You should at least read the Gazprom magazine or something ... laughing Well, or Martsinkevich and Zemlyansky would periodically listen to ...

          You are trying to discuss something that you don’t understand from the word “at all”. "Unprofessional Gazprom" has been successfully operating for more than 20 years, brings a very weighty share to the budget, builds and builds and builds .... And it is not going to declare bankruptcy. Today this company is recognized as one of the most successful in the world. And no matter how many question and exclamation marks you put, this will not change the situation. You yourself would need at least a little of the diploma that the specialists from Gazprom have. And then you here "entertain" people with nonsense and do not even understand how ridiculous you look.

            - You know this expression - "The mountain gave birth to a mouse" ... - This is about this situation ...
            - Gazprom can report - as it pleases ...
            - And he will never say how much money he gave to Europe so that it would allegedly pay with "the same money" for allegedly participation in the construction of SP-2 ...
            - Gazprom reported "at the peak of the gas price rise" ... - without closing the whole year ...
            - But the situation is absolutely unstable ... - fanfare is already thundering - but it is not yet known how it will end ...
            - So far, only the market wins very much ... - And the market distracts everyone ... - it's not up to Gazprom here yet ... Gazprom itself - does not think about the market ... - it is too weak and dependent player to "seriously" play on the market ...

              - Meanwhile, Gazprom did not defend its positions in Europe ... - all the troubles for him are still ahead ... - And the pipe has already been built ...

              Therefore, the SOE works under long-term contracts.

              - And what are "long contracts" ??? - This is not a continuous price volatility. prices are already negotiable ...
              - Ie - Gazprom is "put within the framework" - "If you want to make money, supply as much gas as possible" - and not by raising the price of gas ... - This is what its European consumers and "partners" are trying to achieve and have already actually achieved from Gazprom ...
              - Look what Germany is doing today - the most "interested partner" of Gazprom ...
              - Yes, today Gazprom may look quite good for many - but this is a "caliph for an hour" ... - And Gazprom has already begun to work for the whole of Europe and its position in Europe is "give it and bring it up" ...

                It is not for you to tell me what it is possible for me to give on this thread.
                For example, I just say that you are not in the subject, but I'm not trying to shut you up. Clowns are needed everywhere. And every "work" is held in high esteem laughing You may not be aware of the "long contracts", but the Groningen principle of pricing in long-term contracts for the supply of natural gas has existed for several decades and has proven its viability in the absence of crises like the current one. This principle allows planning investment activities in the field of exploration, production and transportation of gas precisely by its low volatility and long-term obligations of suppliers to consumers and vice versa. Gas, after all, not potatoes in the nearest stall. To organize gas production, you must first invest a lot of funds, sometimes borrowed against the guarantees of supply contracts. So banks give out serious loans ... And you are here "spot-spot" ... What Gazprom gave to Europe through the courts, it has more than returned. And, to all appearances, it will also get enough of the ill-conceived energy policy of the EU. And there has always been pressure from Europe (read the USA). And it will continue ... This is a common truth. Maybe Gazprom and "caliph for an hour", but this hour is already 20 years old. If he can raise wages, then he has reserves for this. And he also began to implement the President's program for the gasification of something that no one else could provide. And he is also designing a pipe for 50 billion cubic meters from sources that the West feeds, and is building a large chemical plant in Ust-Luga ... Do you know many companies with such development programs? So much for the "caliph ..."

    Gas at $ 2 per 000 cubic meters was seen. They will see 1 each.
    And I wonder when the companies tied to SP2 will go to court? When Germany gave the building permit, the documents were drawn up in the same way. So, complaints about documents must be addressed while standing in front of a mirror.
    This is a present for the managers and shareholders of Gazprom for the New Year (well, or for Christmas, whoever has it).
