Germany postponed the decision on "Nord Stream-2" to the second half of 2022

The German Federal Grid Agency will not be able to make the long-awaited decision in the near future to issue a certificate for the commissioning of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. This statement was made by the head of department Jochen Hohmann.

There will be no such decisions in the first half of the year (2022 - ed.)

- quoted the German functionary by Reuters.

Hohmann said that the reason for this was the lack of the necessary documents on the part of the applicant, that is, Nord Stream 2 AG.

The head of the regulatory body also said that the Swiss Nord Stream 2 AG has begun the process of creating a full-fledged subsidiary in Germany in accordance with the requirements of the legislation of the Federal Republic.

Earlier it was reported that the decision to launch the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline would be made no later than early May 2022.

Germany's Federal Grid Agency suspended the certification process for the disputed pipeline in November, saying the consortium must first set up a subsidiary in Germany and transfer Swiss assets to it.

    well, that the Russian Federation is only on hand, gas prices will remain hyper high, Gazprom will soon increase contract prices for the Germans, then they will shout, but it will be useless ... Gazprom no longer intends to increase the volume of supplies for transit, the Hans will have to buy also expensive LNG from the Russian Federation

      The leaders of Gazprom acted like street punks: Let's get into a fight, the goof will get scared, and then we'll see. Unfortunately, in order to develop industry, to build Poseidons, Zircons, Petrel, we need money. And there is nowhere to get them except from oil and gas. And what was from the sale of resources was squeezed into pockets and folded into a box about which everyone knows, but no one has seen. Our weak Russian capitalism. To play according to the laws of an experienced sharper, to be left without money. And you cannot land a landing of cosmonauts against the FRG, as against the Turks in Khmeimim. Gazprom flew in, so it flew in. Did not reveal German intentions and political alignments.

    Perhaps it will be even more profitable. While JV2 is out of service, prices remain high. Let's see how this news will affect the price ... The Germans themselves raise the price with news alone. The additional volume will not be allowed through the Ukrainian gas transportation system. Let the consumers of Europe pay for their solidarity with Ukraine.

      And when they dragged the pipe there, Miller was thinking about how the Russians can twist their arms calmly. As a result, they exist in limbo for years. Losses of profit abroad will require its increase inside, i.e. raising the value on the domestic market. SP-2 has become a weapon of EU pressure on Gazprom.

    Surprised, but not very much.
    This means that Berlin (the SP-2 gas pipeline) was (was it ?!) so much Berlin needs it, if it is so easy to refuse and go for certification ?! what
    Well-"You can't be cute by force!"
    If "need" comes, the Germans themselves will resort (to the Russian "Gazprom" or to someone else ?!), probably ?! winked

    - Ay, yes, I personally have already written about all this and more than once - I'm already tired of chewing the same thing ...
    - Well, the illiterate Gazprom voluntarily got into a rather primitive trap (yes, if only one more; otherwise they are just in bulk) ...
    - Gazprom got involved in a game with the EU (represented by Germany) - in a game that it did not pull ... - Well ... - illiterate, unprofessional, very incompetent even in his field (and even talking about "European troubles" there is nothing - there is Gazprom and at all - a complete layman) ... - So Gazprom just flew in "in full" ...
    - Well, personally, I started repeating myself again ... - It was necessary to bring calculations from my previous comments about this topic; but it's just not too lazy to look for them ...
    - Well, Gazprom today resembles Gorbachev, who many years ago took and gave the GDR to Germany for nothing; and Western Europe gave all the valuable real estate that the USSR had, created and stimulated its maintenance in Western Europe for many decades ...
    - And now Germany is just going to take away "Gazprom's property" (and the SP-2 pipe and other Gazprom assets); and to leave to Gazprom only the miserable functions of delivering Russian gas to Europe .... - This is the kind of "partnership" that Germany is going to impose on Gazprom ... - And Germany does it ...
    - Well, if Gazprom is impenetrably stupid and is a complete sucker - why not "throw" it ... - So everyone who is not lazy "throws" Gazprom: China, Erdogan (Turkey), Western Europe (courts), Germany and so on and so on ...
    - This topic is inexhaustible and already tired ...
    “Personally, I’m not in the least surprised at that; that very soon Germany will become the owner of all the assets of SP-2 and will become a full-fledged owner of the entire structure of processing and supplying Western Europe with Russian gas ... - and Gazprom will remain on the "dancer" ...

      Irina! It's good to have your own opinion, but it's naive to ignore the facts. The fact that Gazprom was supposed to get rid of transit through Ukraine, I hope, is beyond doubt. The fact that the idea of ​​SP-2 was supported by Germany is a fact. Open opposition from the United States is also a fact. Of course, we did not expect such a market, when a competitor openly and impudently interferes in trade affairs and applies sanctions. They are openly trying to force us to do what is beneficial to a third party. Fortunately, the energy crisis helps us to cover the costs. I think the President, the Government and Gazprom know what they are doing. There is an acute issue of time and resources for reorientation from the West to Asia. After all, a hybrid war against Russia is no longer a conspiracy, but a fact. We got up from our knees, but this does not suit the collective West and it is trying to repeat the 90s.

        conspiracy, but a fact.

        - Personally, I don’t understand - everyone is brainwashed, or what - on this one on "reorientation from West to Asia" !!! ???
        - Someone will say and all at once pick up ... - this, what is it !!!
        - To this they would also add that, supposedly - all the indigenous inhabitants of Europe - all at once will take and rush ("reorient") to China, Korea, Japan, etc. and so on ... - for permanent residence ...
        - But no - in real life everything is exactly "the opposite" - everyone is climbing into Europe !!! - But "everything," for some reason, should be "reoriented" from "West to Asia" !!! - For what sake ???
        - Who threw this "duck about orientation", China ??? - Well, so he (China) has to hold the Olympics and seize Taiwan - that's China and carries all kinds of nonsense propaganda; and obedient Russia picks up ...
        - China today does not know - what to do with its working population today - "Chinese production" is curtailing - a real economic crisis in China (which for some reason is called an energy crisis) ...
        - Oil and gas are needed by South Korea and Japan - and they easily solve these problems ...
        - Malaysia does not need oil and gas - it exports its own gas and oil; and even palm oil ...
        - And gas and oil are needed by Europe (Germany, Britain), the USA ... and so on ...
        - And it is much easier and cheaper to supply gas and oil to Europe than to Asia ... - It was only China who fooled Turkmenistan, Russia, Kazakhstan - and pumps gas to China for nothing ... - And other "suppliers" take it from China payment for the supplied gas is very high ... - hence all the "fuss" ...
        - And delivery to Asia should be more expensive = gas itself in Asia should be more expensive ...
        - And what is there ... here ... is there a "reorientation" ???
        - They just started "parrots" - so they "repeat" ...

      - You yourself believe in something like that ??? - Or maybe there is no pipe at all - and she, so all of herself "virtual" just "brings income" ... - Great !!!
      - The spot market and all speculative exchanges have just become jealous and ... and ... and nervously smoke on the sidelines ... - And a pipe that just exists - or exists; or - maybe not ... - somehow - "gives income" ...
      - Damn, yes, this pipe (which has not been in operation for a day) - even if only itself - all the funds that were invested in its construction - would be recouped - and then at least something real would be ...
      - And also; there are rumors that the pipe is already filled with gas ... - And what is the length and capacity of this pipe - and how much gas is there (in this entire pipe itself) in a "certain mode and state" (pressure, temperature, gas fluidity, etc.)? ?? - Who supports this regime ??? - A whole "service" - operators, attendants, workers of pumping stations, etc. and so on ... - And who pays them salary for this idle pipe ??? - Oh, yes - s / n itself - "taken from the air" ...
      = Ha, not only that ... that ... that this pipe did not pay for its construction - so also every day the pipe is down (these losses) - someone has to pay ...
      - Maybe you can guess - who ???
      - So, what kind of "income" is this - are you here ... here ... broadcasting here ???

        You madam look like a fan of talking nonsense on the site and scribbling without stopping the message. Well, let's start with the fact that contracts are now 70%, if in my opinion, are no longer tied to the spot price and every quarter will change, as for example, Poland wanted through the court. Here will be a revision prices for an increase with Poland and with the rest. What is not a plus for Gazprom? From the pipe that is not working at the moment, there are only some pluses and you do not have a single argument to point out where the minuses are.

    a couple of months ago there was an article here with a funny headline, something about our ultimatum to Germany regarding SP-2. Some type of Gazprom manager gave a deadline until early January for approval. It's funny, of course, of course he could not do any ultimatum, purely journalistic tricks with words. I then commented that we cannot put an ultimatum, the rules are set by the European Union. It seemed like minuses were thrown at me then, well, a little time passed and we see the real state of affairs. And who wants to live in illusions, to present our ultimatums, etc., ok live. It's just that in illusions, a person can make the wrong decisions, and then it will hurt because of mistakes, well, this is everyone's personal business.
