Measures of the European Union in case of stopping the supply of Russian gas are disclosed


The Europeans are trying to find ways to replace Russian gas in the event that its transportation to the EU is stopped. The main measures of Western countries in this direction are revealed by Thierry Breton, European Commissioner for the Internal Market, in a conversation with journalists from the Italian edition of La Stampa.


According to Breton, in order to replace 155 billion cubic meters of gas from Russian fields, EU residents can use LNG with a volume of about 50 billion cubic meters, 10 billion cubic meters will be supplied through pipelines from other sellers, 25 billion cubic meters of blue fuel can be obtained using biogas and alternative energy . About 10 billion cubic meters more can be saved by Europeans through a more sparing use of gas.

As a last resort, the European official believes, EU countries can switch to more intensive use of coal, which would help save 20 billion cubic meters of gas. Nuclear power plants will save another 13 billion cubic meters of gaseous fuel.

In addition, some enterprises (mainly steel) in a situation of gas crisis should switch to the use of fuel oil, which would save another 10 billion cubic meters of gas.

Thierry Breton also believes that EU countries should jointly purchase and store gas, as well as take measures to decouple the cost of electricity from fossil fuels.

    Well, joint purchases should be stopped altogether - before it is too late to close the EU representation in Russia and conduct a separate sovereign policy with each individual Embassy (State). The crowd is certainly easier for them. And if, after the closing of the representative office, some particularly stubborn Representative is excommunicated (just reset someone’s embassy to zero. Then others will have to think carefully about the choice of words and expressions in communication with Russia.

    OK. 138 out of 155. This is if it "grows", that is, at best.
    And without regard to prices.

    The flag, as they say, in the hands ....

    The Bologna education system brought up a commissar at the level of the sailor Zheleznyak. With such leaders of the nobility from Stargorod, they will certainly save money!

    If it was that simple, no one would have squealed. And the EU squeals and very strongly.

      They squeal from the fact that right now they already have to cut the back one in any way. In terms of sanctions. Otherwise, just nothing.

    Biogas? Do they even represent the scope of work and its cost? Bullshit. Completely illiterate types.

      Today I read it gives a volume of 0.01% of the gas consumed by Europe, and it is also terribly expensive, the German himself said this.

    After their refusal, gas will skyrocket wildly, plus coal will become more expensive in price and I think it will also be very strong as demand will increase sharply. And will the Yankees have enough gas carriers to bring 50 billion cubic meters of LNG to Europe?

    50 billion LNG? Do they have any idea how long their regasification takes? Yes, even if they line up in a queue, they will not be able to process such a volume. They also plan to increase processing at existing capacities, and the previous workload has not disappeared. Generation of eurodebils. The European peoples have degenerated into what miserable dreamers.

      A long period of peace corrupted ordinary Europeans with laziness of thinking, and it allowed impudent morons to break through to power

    Looks like now shit will be very expensive. On the one hand, farmers who are left without fertilizers will need it, and on the other hand, competition from biogas producers.

    And to lift the blockade in Russia, and live a full life, such a simple thought did not visit the European Commissioner?

    First we create difficulties for ourselves, and then we heroically overcome them.
    What could be more stupid
    We (Russia) have already been through this, we know the result, but "enlightened" Europe never ceases to amaze ..

    So their whole "green energy" scam came to the surface. No coal, no atom, and get your hands off Russian gas without molecules of freedom! And forward with rainbow flags to the "environmentally clean future".

    So what if the belly is empty,
    the butt is freezing, darkness is all around.
    Europa proudly drags
    hello to everyone rainbow flag!

    Europeans have no way to buy gas on the side. No one can replace the Russian one. Gas prices for the West should be raised according to current quotations. Gas reserves in other countries are depleted, and consumption is growing. European gas must be shut off. This is a POWERFUL response to their sanctions. It's just amazing why they still flirt and flirt with them ??? Is it not clear that this is not the way to deal with them. Gas is always in price and we have sales markets.

    I don’t understand why those who shoot at the Russians are destroyed and blocked by energy sources, and those who supply them with weapons cannot close the gas valve for two months to warn them? liberals will remember your descendants?

    Switching to "green" energy with the help of fuel oil? Well, yes, "environmentally friendly" No.

    What a great strategy! The flag is in your hands! It’s just not clear why YOU and SUCH SMART LEADERS need Russian gas at all?)))
