The first problems arose with gas supplies due to the need to pay for it in rubles


Deliveries of Russian gas via the Yamal-Europe main transit pipeline through the Malnov pressure maintenance station, located on the Polish-German border, fell to zero on March 29. This is reported by Reuters, referring to the data of the regional gas operator Gascade.


Deliveries through the other two main channels of Russian gas transit to the EU remain stably high. At the same time, Yamal-Europe almost always causes problems for Gazprom. This is mainly due to the position of Poland, which is a transit territory. On the afternoon of March 29, during the auction, the holding booked part of the gas pipeline's capacity for the whole day on March 30. However, by the evening the pumping in the direction under consideration had stopped completely.

By 14:29 Moscow time on March 1500, the gas flow through Malnov was approximately XNUMX MWh. But later the figures dipped to zero. The fact that the next day some of the gas pipeline's capacities were “bought out” did not affect the shutdown. According to the news agency, booking volumes directly does not mean actual deliveries, since capacities are not guaranteed in this way. And Gazprom itself does not always use the reserved one. In fact, the Polish direction has been operating at its minimum capacity since December last year, showing dynamics only if there is demand from Western customers, and then again goes to zero.

In the analyzed case, the first problem most likely arose with payment for gas supplies in rubles. "Yamal-Europe" is essentially a gas pipeline operating on prepaid (pumping capacity). Therefore, when Gazprom reserved supplies for Wednesday, March 30, volumes and capacities were probably calculated based on customer requests. However, later, by the evening of March 29, almost all countries, without exception, refused to pay for the consumed fuel in rubles. Even Serbiagas, which is friendly to our country, also refused to change the currency of payment, although it admitted that without gas from the Russian Federation it would be forced to switch to heating with wood.

Perhaps for this reason, already by the evening, the already weak pumping of raw materials through Yamal-Europe was completely stopped and it is unlikely that it will begin on March 30, despite the booked volumes. In this case, Russia simply fulfills its promise that there will be no free supplies. And now it is not possible to sell for rubles. In fairness, it should be noted that the mechanism has not really been worked out yet, and Gazprom's partners, even with all their desire, are not able to make payments.

    And you are not the GDP, or maybe Miller, to argue about the lack of elaboration? It is necessary to apply the article along the way for the dissemination of false information.

      As they said in the government of the Russian Federation, only those countries that are on the list of unfriendly Russia will pay in rubles. Serbia is not included in this list.

    Follow the transformation. With light movements, the Serbs practically turn into almost Bulgarian little brothers. smile The art of emphasizing and playing with words works wonders sad

    Serbia will continue to pay for Russian gas in foreign currency and supplies will not stop.

    The head of the Serbian enterprise clarified that Gazprom and Gazprom Export did not fall under Western sanctions, but Serbia is not considered an unfriendly country by Russia.

    In other words, the Serbs do not fall under the new requirement, they are not required to do this.
    However, the header already looks like this:

    Head of Serbiagaz: We will not pay for Russian gas in rubles

    https://eadaily.com/ru/news/2022/03/29/glava-serbiyagaza-za-rossiyskiy-gaz-ne-budem-platit-rublyami

    And now everything is gone, again the brothers sold us crying how long? sad soon they will write that Vucic himself organized the sanctions winked

    Even Serbiagaz, which is friendly to our country, also refused to change the settlement currency, although he admitted that without gas from the Russian Federation he would be forced to switch to heating with wood.

    As for the wood itself...

    Serbia can refuse Russian gas only if it switches to firewood, but there are not so many forests in Europe, D. Bajatović, the general director of Serbiagas, said in an interview with the 021 portal.

    Top manager's theses:
    The EU alone cannot solve the issue of Russian gas, because America can supply 15 billion m3 of the required 250 billion m3.
    American gas will always be more expensive than Russian.
    The transition from Russian pipeline gas to liquefied natural gas (LNG) from other suppliers will take 5 to 8 years.
    As for us, if we are forced, we can cut off the supply of Russian gas, but on the condition that we have enough firewood. But I'm afraid that neither here, nor even in Europe, there is so much forest.
    This whole situation is most in the interests of America, because she has restored her industry. Also, Russia will get more money for the same amount of energy resources.

        Don't mind yes There, in fact, everything is somewhat more complicated. Serbia, for example, is not only a buyer, but also a transit country. For transit receives in Euro. In general, somehow it is necessary to look at contracts and discuss conditions hi

    ... hmm... o_0

    The first deal with payment for gas in rubles was made by Gazprom Export three years ago, in March 2019. The transaction was carried out on the electronic platform of the Russian company, about 80 million cubic meters were sold. m of gas on terms “until the end of the month” with delivery to the NCG point (hub in Germany).

    In addition, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin instructed the governments and the Central Bank, as well as the leadership of Gazprom, to work out mechanisms for paying for gas supplies to countries recognized as unfriendly by rubles until March 31. Now what is the number? The epic with the valve at Yamal-Europe has already turned into a PR action, and not into a gas trade, for half a year.
