Following the suspension of supplies via Yamal - Europe, Russia sharply reduced transit through Ukraine

On the first day of 2022, the transit of natural gas from Russia through Ukraine towards Slovakia dropped sharply, as evidenced by the data of the Slovak gas transmission operator Eustream.

On December 31, 2021, 83,78 million cubic meters were pumped in the indicated direction. m of "blue fuel". On January 1, 2022, transit amounted to 49,55 million cubic meters. m. Thus, the pumping rate fell by 40,9%.

Before that, in mid-December, Gazprom reported that it had pumped through Ukraine the 40 billion cubic meters provided for by the agreements. m of gas. After that, I did not book additional transit volumes.

For the entire 2020, transit from Russia to the European Union through Ukraine amounted to 55,8 billion cubic meters. m. This is 37,7% less than was pumped in 2019 (89,6 billion cubic meters). At the same time, the average daily transit in 2020 amounted to 153 million cubic meters. m, with booked 178 million cubic meters. m.

We remind you that, according to the current five-year contract (2020-2024), Gazprom has undertaken certain obligations at the request of the Ukrainian side. The Russian company must pump certain volumes of gas or pay for the contracted capacities on a “pump or pay” basis, if the transit was not carried out. In 2020, Gazprom was supposed to pump 65 billion cubic meters. m of gas, and in the period 2021-2024 - 40 billion cubic meters. meters of gas (110 million cubic meters per day).

Moreover, Gazprom has once again not booked the transit capacities of the Polish section of the Yamal - Europe gas pipeline for pumping blue fuel through Poland to Germany. This is evidenced by information from the Polish specialized auction site GSA Platform.

The Poles put up 69,8 million cubic meters of pumping capacity for booking. m of gas. But this proposal turned out to be of no use to anyone. Moreover, this has been observed for the second week in a row, both at regular and additional sessions.

Until December 17, Gazprom booked transit facilities for the Polish Yamal - Europe section on a daily basis. Then he reduced the use of this route for the transportation of energy raw materials. On December 20, Gazprom stopped using the specified section due to the lack of applications from consumers.

Note that the Poles themselves refused to renew the long-term gas transit agreement with the Russians in 2020. Since then, Gazprom has used short-term transit facilities from Gaz-System, the operator of the Polish pipeline system, by purchasing them at auctions.

    Ukraine is already trying to fight off business with Russia. Introduced a law prohibiting our ships from entering their ports. And only Russia is muttering about double standards and trying to figure out how to get around the prohibitions and support this Nazi regime. Ships flying false flags, energy supplies. Business goes on - money doesn't smell. But the neighbor asks: don't !!!

    Pan Ataman Vovan Tavrichesky's campaign runs out of gold (gas) supply ... The lads began to scatter ... If it goes on like this, then Popandopulo the Sad Horse will also scatter in different directions.

    Gazprom has fulfilled all of its long-term obligations.
    At the current spot price tag, gas is expensive for Europe, to put it mildly.

    Under these conditions, it is logical that the gas pipeline is resting.
    There is no one to drive gas and there is no need.

      That is what shale producers who are getting up from their knees are required.

          If only they did not begin to increase the number of terminals for processing methane. And then Gazprom will have a hard time. Analysts and forecasters of the SVR, Gazprom, Rosneft, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the GRU, missed the layout of the German political chicken coop.

            Detachment of gas liquefaction plants is not two fingers rubbing against the asphalt, it will take some time. And it is also necessary to carry out very "not environmentally friendly" gas pipelines from the production sites, which, even without the resistance of the mad "green" ones, is quite a resource and financially intensive process.
            P.S. If everything were simple, then these factories would already be working. After all, STGAs dream of taking the place of the main fuel pump in the world! laughing

              And after all, they will. 10 years ago, their shale gas was the subject of jokes on the Petrosyan show.

                Jokes, not jokes, but for now the "evil" wave is preparing to wash away the shale producers with their ruthless methods of resource extraction.

                  If only the Gazprom's ones are not washed away, and those Shantsevo ones should be washed away.

                    These will not wash away, but it is high time for Europe to think ... not about the green transition, but about what they will do if the matter does not grow together!

          Shale gas is as helpful in the kitchen as a bucket of slop on the dining table. Whoever cooked food on it knows the charm of dukhmyan. Better to heat a stove on a dung. laughing

    Deputy Mayor of Warsaw Renata Kaznowska was shocked by the rise in gas prices for residents of the Polish capital. One of the municipal hospitals paid $ 2021 thousand for gas in 30, and in 2022 it will have to pay already $ 220 thousand. Normally, they fought with Nord Stream.

    An interesting picture is emerging. Now about 30 American gas carriers bring gas to Europe. Gas price is about $ 1000 per 1000 cubic meters. Europe has money for these gas carriers. And on the Russian trumpet no. Although it is cheaper ... In the EU, they openly say we will buy gas from Russia when prices return to $ 100 per 1000 cubic meters.

      Do you know where they get gas? On Sakhalin. This is Russian gas. It's just that while Russia is forced to give it up. Thanks to Elqin.
