Why is it more profitable for Gazprom to part with its gas storage facilities in Europe

The rise in gas prices and the approach of the next winter season are forcing Europeans to take extreme and sometimes extrajudicial measures. Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer threatened Gazprom to seize the republic's largest gas storage facility, Haidach, if it is not filled with fuel, and hand it over to other suppliers.

In addition, the German authorities won the right to nationalize energy infrastructure facilities if they play a big role in providing the country with gas. Brussels, on the other hand, requires gas operators to fill UGS facilities by 80 percent by early October.

According to energy expert Igor Yushkov, all this deprives the operation of Russian gas storage facilities in Europe and it is actually more profitable for Gazprom to part with them.

If these requirements are met now, then in winter Europe can declare that they have a state of emergency due to a shortage of gas, and then they can simply confiscate it along with storage

- said the expert in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.

At the same time, Gazprom has already lost its assets in Germany. Under such conditions, the Russian company can change its tactics in Europe by selling gas directly and at market prices. Moreover, Germany will also pay the full cost of gas, although until recently blue fuel from Russia was supplied there at a discount.

    - Ha, yes, it is “profitable” for Gazprom today - just to set fire to, blow up, bring into complete absolute disrepair - all of its gas storage facilities that are located in Western Europe - due to the fact that:
    1. The vaults did not go to the Western enemies there - thieves, bandits and swindlers;
    2. In order not to pay for them (for storage) property taxes, etc...
    - And then - one way or another - they will still be taken away from Gazprom and appropriated.

    It is clear that the West needs gas storage facilities. That's why they put pressure on Gazprom to fill them up and only then take them away

    The capture of Odessa is necessary! Catacombs are natural gas storages! Yes, and for one strangle the remnants of the Nazis.

      The capture of Odessa is impossible without the capture of Nikolaev. An amphibious landing without a naval version of the C300 Fort (he drowned) is associated with heavy losses. BDK Saratov to help.

    It's time to calculate Gazprom's losses from such work with Europe and include them in the price of the resource.

    In a good way, you need to pump in a small amount of explosives instead of gas and not bang too much, so as not to destroy it much, but you couldn’t use it either, they say, they made a mistake, sorry.

    And how else can you order to talk to the bandit Gazprom, which cut off gas supply to Poland and Bulgaria in violation of contracts?

      The Poles, they didn’t confuse anything with the Bulgarians, you need to answer for words and actions, if not according to the law, because. in relation to Russia, the laws do not work, so in essence.

      Those. not paying for gas is the norm, but not supplying it for free is banditry? :)
      In addition, the agreements were probably not signed directly with Gazprom, but with its European subsidiaries, from which it came out and by itself owes nothing to anyone. Let these orphaned daughters get out. And how to block gold reserves - please, but how to pay for gas - so this is already something not normal. Let the psheks sit without gas.
