The agreement between the US and the EU on the supply of LNG turned out to be a fiction

The pompous agreement between the United States and the European Union for the supply of 15 billion cubic meters of liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a declaration of intent and is completely unbacked by real contracts. In addition to the fact that these are meager volumes, absolutely insufficient for Europe in terms of ensuring energy independence from Russia, it is also impossible to ensure them in reality.

The US has already recognized this fact.

Contracts for the indicated volumes were not signed. So far, in general, sources have been identified that will allow achieving the designated goals.

Jake Sullivan, National Security Adviser to the President of the United States.

According to him, it was initially about a "combination of efforts" of America in the direction of what can be done at all. Behind this ornate phrase of the official there is only one specific fact - Washington has expanded the list of countries that have received permission to load LNG from some American sea terminals. But the most "interesting" Sullivan voiced further:

Also, over the past two months, we have been able to effectively intercept cargo that was originally intended for other buyers, and we are able to do this throughout the current year.

- brags about the actual robbery of other people's property Sullivan.

Continuing to reinforce and justify the fiction with false facts, an aide to President Joe Biden described how his superiors "engage" with other energy suppliers. For example, with Qatar. Although the latter regularly stubbornly answers all attempts at such “interaction” that it cannot provide additional volumes of gas, and also points to the lack of alternatives for supplies from Russia. However, for the Western media, the “facts” cited by Sullivan are quite enough to create the appearance of assistance to Europe suffering from a deficit.

Unless The New York Times betrayed itself and wrote a partial truth. The United States has only “virtual” trump cards and imaginary plans in its hands, there are no potential additional volumes, just as there is no possibility to accept even more gas in the form of LNG from the EU.

Recall that based on the promises of Washington, we are talking about 15 billion cubic meters of gas, which in fact there is nowhere to get. At the same time, the European Commission is considering the need to replace approximately 102 billion cubic meters of Russian fuel in the very near future. As they say, incomparable figures and unrealistic tasks.

    I would be satisfied if part of the shipments of weapons supplied to Ukraine ended up in the hands of opponents of the West. For example, "javelins" in the towers of the "Abrams", "faustpanzers" in the "Leopards", "enlows" in the "Challengers" and other "Leclercs". Preferably with the crews of these "benefactors". Russian oil.
    I remembered when Vanga was still alive, she said that the West would organize a blockade of Russian gas and oil, but they would break off, they would only ruin themselves .. Then he treated this as an eccentricity of an old woman ...

    And where are all the "Greens" in Europe and their "translators", that just a little bit more and Europe will refuse all energy sources from Russia, and in general will live in an environmentally friendly, satisfying and beautiful way? It didn't work out, did it? And let them continue to sniff the "flowers" in the clearing, or whatever they are sniffing right now ...

      two points:
      - "green" energy will kill nature completely, if you are interested, I can explain in more detail;
      - To date, minke whales have been able to collect 15 billion cubic meters of LNG for Europe instead of 102 billion supplied from Russia.
      The construction of "green" energy will require more than a dozen years and a cloud of energy that does not exist, since it does not even exist in order to give light and heat to people. The words spoken about the rejection of the Russian economy in the 15th (or 14th century) correspond to the truth, only not in Russia, but in most of Europe.
      The decision is up to the governments and businessmen of each individual European country. The EU project is practically closed. The US got it.

        My post was banter lol ... I myself have previously written about "greenery" more than once (May, September, October 2021), and there is no point in citing them here, since I understood from your comment that you are already in the know. wink

    LNG is produced from natural gas by compression followed by cooling. When liquefied, natural gas is reduced in volume by about 600 times.


    If "15 billion cubic meters of liquefied natural gas (LNG)" is multiplied by 600, we get
    = 9000 billion cubic meters of gas. This is still more than "102 billion cubic meters"

      Modern gas carriers of the Q-Flex and Q-Max types have a capacity of about 250000 m3 of liquefied gas. In order to transport the declared 15 billion cubic meters of liquefied gas, it is necessary to make 60000 such gas carriers a year, that is, about 165 gas carriers per day. Therefore, 15 billion cubic meters of liquefied gas is all bullshit, sorry, Biden's stallion.

        Something does not add up ... 15 billion divided by 600, and we get 25 million ... 25 million divided by 250 m000, and we get 3 (!) ... only 100 flights ... but more and nowhere to take)))

    For some reason, all journalists always give data in different units such as a barrel and a liter, a cubic meter of LNG and a cubic meter of natural gas ....
    Therefore, it is extremely difficult to understand the intricacies of their thoughts ....

      Yes, everything is very simple. A barrel (barrel in English) of about 180 liters is used in the oil market. Not sure, but possibly in the liquid agricultural market.
      A cubic meter of natural gas is the volume of gas reduced to standard conditions. This is a standard pressure of 750 or 760mmHg. and a temperature of 20-28 degrees Celsius (the second number corresponds to 60 degrees Fahrenheit).
      Thus, estimates of the volume of consumed gas depending on the country may differ by 5-6%.

      Maybe the "declared" 15 billion cubic meters. this is the volume of gas "available" for export (???) ... only compressed (liquefied) for loading and convenient transportation (???). And then we shouldn't "arbitrarily" regasify it 600 times from the initial figure ...)))
      1. Polente the Wanderer April 14 2022 21: 56
        May be. But then it is necessary to write that this is gas recovered from Compressed Natural Gas (and not "billions of cubic meters of liquefied gas"). That a barrel of oil is a barrel is understandable. But in an article, is it really difficult to immediately reveal comparable values ​​​​(for example, they mined 1000 tons, sold ... tons (and not ... barrels)

    Interestingly, if the supply of enriched uranium to the US from Russia is banned, how much energy will the US need to replace losses in power generation? And how much energy can the US supply to the EU after that?

      You don't have to ban. One side forbade the other to make payments in dollars. The second party is obliged to protect its rights under the agreement to change the currency of account in order to be guaranteed to receive payment for the delivered products.

    Well, the new series of "Pirates of the Caribbean" is on the screen.
    Assistant Jack Sparrow:

    Also, over the past two months, we have been able to effectively intercept cargo that was originally intended for other buyers, and we are able to do this throughout the current year.

    The question arises, does Mr. Biden have famous ancestors like Francis Drake or Morgan in his pedigree?
