Germany refuses Russian oil partially and completely from coal

Germany plans to halve oil supplies from Russia by the summer of this year, as well as significantly reduce purchases of Russian coal. According to Spiegel, dependence on gas from the Russian Federation by the end of 2022 will also be reduced by about 30 percent.

Meanwhile, about 35 percent of Germany's oil needs are met by supplies from Russia.

At the same time, Germany is planning a gradual phasing out of Russian energy sources. In order to diversify oil supplies, the German energy department considers it necessary to organize the transportation of "black gold" through ports, as well as by trucks and trains.

As part of these measures, the operator of the oil refinery in Leuna (East Germany), French energy giant Total, agreed to halve oil supplies from Russia by mid-April.

In addition, most German power plant operators have begun to significantly reduce the use of Russian hard coal - by the beginning of the summer they will be able to almost completely do without fossil fuels from Russia. A similar situation is emerging at steel mills, which will reduce dependence on coal from the Russian Federation in the next few weeks.

By autumn, Germany may become independent from Russian coal

– noted in the Ministry economics and climate protection of Germany (quote Spiegel).

    Will the green Annalena Burbock start mining the Ruhr coal seam?

    The bare basin of the Ruhr River is also considered one of the most productive, since there are over two hundred coal seams in the productive stratum, each of which has a thickness of half a meter.

    And gas for industry from American tankers at 1,5 dollars per 1 cubic meters? So the Chinese industry on Russian energy carriers will be an order of magnitude cheaper. And where will the Germans put their cars then? Gee-gee, in the ear?

    Even with such a reduction, Russia will be in the black and not bad. It used to be $350 for 100%, and now, even with a 50% cut, gas will cost $1200. So is oil. only punish themselves.

    Very good. It is necessary to gradually stop the export of resources from Russia. They will be very useful to Russia itself. In the very near future.

    Refuse Russian coal - it pollutes. And also from gas - so the grandfather of the USA ordered. Because he needs your money. And also from grain, from Russian energy resources. It is impossible for the Germans to eat and drink better than the owner ... Therefore, go to the water from the tap. True, here's how to clean it and feed it to these taps without the same electricity .... Well, it's probably better to collect rainwater. flowing from the roofs. It’s true that pigeons can poop there ... Well, yes, it’s not scary .... Look at what a happy fonderleine jumped around the peasants, came to the saliva .... Take an example.

    In Europe, up to a third of households are heated with coal. Moreover, the most environmentally friendly coal comes from Russia. All the rest is crappy coal, which does not have a positive effect on the environment at all, especially the very bad American one, and all this is much more expensive than Russian.
    rebuilding a refinery for other raw materials is not only a lot of money and time - it sometimes happens that it’s easier to build a new plant ...
    Although they have a lot of money and let them do it .. And in Russia they will have to somehow increase the processing of both oil and gas ..
    But it's still not worth it to rejoice. The fall of the European economy will also affect the Chinese economy and this will affect the price of gas, oil, and so on.
    Again, in these antics of the Europeans, only the United States will win .. WELL, they started this for this ...

    How stupid everyone is in the West and in Germany in particular. I can understand that we have import substitution, we ourselves are starting to do what we bought abroad. But what difference does it make to them where to buy? There is still nothing of its own. After all, it will be more expensive to buy. And really stupid, as Zadornov said.

    Russia will receive more for 50% of oil than in 2021 for 100%, as oil becomes more expensive and more expensive. Russia is in trouble again.

    As always, a loud headline and water in the text. The article has a lot of desire to get hype. Either they will cut it by half, or they want to get closer to it. What is 30% of what, and how much. If you want to do analytics, then write data, numbers, analysis. And that's just an annoyance.
