Fire at Russia's largest gas field could aggravate Europe's plight


Since the end of 2021, the global gas market has been in a fever. Despite the transition to green energy declared by Western countries, their consumption of hydrocarbons is constantly growing. This factor, as well as the OPEC+ agreement to limit gas production, has been pushing fossil fuel prices up for a long time. The beginning of the Russian special military operation contributed to the increase in prices, however, for purely political reasons.


Now there are even more reasons for concern among buyers of Russian gas.

First, the other day, Gazprom announced a reduction in gas supplies to Germany due to the lack of supplies of the necessary equipment. Now, on the night of June 16, there was a fire at the largest Russian gas field in Urengoy (YaNAO). According to estimates, the recoverable reserves of the field amounted to about 10 trillion cubic meters of natural gas. The fire broke out on the pipeline section in the area of ​​the 8th gas field.


According to Gazprom, the main version is a gas pipe rupture. At the moment, there are no other details, as well as information on the course of the liquidation of the accident. We can definitely say that for some time the supply of gas through this pipeline will stop, which will inevitably affect the spot and futures gas market in Europe. For example, last year, after the accident at Gazprom's Mining and Chemical Complex in Novy Urengoy, gas prices rose by about 6%.

    Doesn't it look like a diversion?
    Russia itself needs to switch to gas fuel everywhere. Where it is impossible to stretch pipeline gas - to deliver liquefied gas. If you correctly promote everything, then most of the Western enterprises can switch to the production of goods in Russia. Energy and manpower are much cheaper here. This means that the output will be cheaper. This is the only way Western countries will be able to compete with Asian production from China, India, and Vietnam.

    - Yeah ! - And why would it - a gas pipe burst - there is a "childish" pressure there! - Well, at least not a very large area! - It can be seen that the DRG had enough explosives for so many!

      The question of the topic si ... DRG is not disclosed.
      If you are hinting at the Ukrainians, then the place where any person is in sight is far away.
      And what would the Germans do with Ukraine for this?
      That's what "UFO debris fell" and damaged, it's more likely.

        - Hey, "wise guy" - someone begemot20091 (begemot20091) (sitting in ambush) - the pressure can be different everywhere (and the diameter of the gas pipe can be different everywhere) !!! - If in the pipe where the "fire" occurred - there would be pressure - "22 MPa \u22d 217.1231194 megapascals \uXNUMXd XNUMX standard atmospheres" - then it would explode there so that .... - and the flame of fire would be "higher than the sky"! !! - I advise you to continue - "to sit in ambush" and periodically try to "be smart" !!!

          So I sit on this pipe. In fact, I work nearby. Regarding pressure: in the pipe of one winked diameters and different pressures .... The Mendeleev-Klaiperon equation for some reason is silent about this

    For me, this is the main tragedy, however, only the blind did not see the situation that many in the country hate its leadership. There are a lot of internal traitors spitting in the back of their own army. And they don’t understand that the joke about rocking the boat is no longer a joke! They look at me with fish eyes when I explain to them that after the defeat in Ukraine, a civil war will begin and all your dreams will go to the bottom!
