Uniper wants to force Russia to accept a turbine for Nord Stream through the court


From the moment when the gas compressor turbine ended up in Germany and the Russian side refuses to accept it without permits, force majeure has ceased to be such. Representatives of the German energy giant concern Uniper are sure of it. The company is in a deplorable state due to a lack of gas from Russia, so simple legal "little things", excuses, other circumstances and the behavior of the raw material supplier also began to matter to her.


Before the turbine transferred by Canada ended up in Germany, the leadership of the German concern was silent, but now it is determined to seek justice in court, believing that all obstacles to full-fledged gas supplies through the Nord Stream pipeline have been removed. But, as you know, "Gazprom" has not yet accepted the turbine, requests documents, leaving the fuel flow through the line equal to 67 million cubic meters instead of 167 prescribed.

Our permanent and once reliable supplier Gazprom failed to supply the contracted and paid gas volumes within a month. The announcement of "force majeure" will not solve the matter, since the contract, apparently, was violated. The issue can be resolved in court.

- says the head of the Uniper concern Klaus-Dieter Maubach.

In the meantime, the turbine for the Portovaya compressor station on the Baltic highway still cannot get permission to enter Russia. She literally "stuck" in Germany. Gazprom stubbornly adheres to the state of "force majeure". To support the assertion, the holding requested for the third time from the Canadian side some documents that “confirm the provision of an exemption from the current sanctions regimes of Canada and the EU” in order to return to Russia. This is reported by the telegram channel of the holding.

That is why Uniper does not recognize the emergency regime, which Gazprom notified its client about, does not agree that supplies cannot be increased, and also does not understand the reason for the delay in sending the unit to the Russian Federation. Moreover, Gazprom openly says that the current terms of the contract (for repairs, of course) do not provide for additional obligations of the Russian side to receive this engine.

Given these circumstances, the case is likely to end in a European court, which in the current situation is unbelievable: excuses for not providing documents are unlikely to be taken into account by the bar. And for Uniper, which is drifting towards bankruptcy, there is no other way out of the situation. This is the last chance to force Russia to accept the repaired engine and run Nord Stream at full capacity, which would save the German concern.

    If the turbine has standard accompanying documents such as a passport and a form with a list of work done, then really why this certificate of “exemption from sanctions”? Looks like overkill

      The sanctions were adopted in violation of international laws and WTO rules.

      Aren't sanctions too much? A response in the spirit of sanctions.
      They will also announce that this is the wrong turbine, which works illegally, because the gas through this turbine is also .... Why then do "bad work" and waste resources on it.

      Yes, it is, which is confirmed by yesterday's article here on this topic and in today's article:

      Gazprom stubbornly adheres to the state of "force majeure". To support the assertion, the holding requested for the third time from the Canadian side some documents that “confirm the provision of an exemption from the current sanctions regimes of Canada and the EU” in order to return to Russia.

      If Gazprom does not return to its "original positions", everything will end for it with penalties for violating supplies

        Penalties will be applied. And turn off the gas. Let them drown with sanctions.

      The whole trouble is that the replacement of one microcircuit in the control will come up with a new index, for example, it was "a" became "a1", and the turbine will work, not as it should, but at the request of the repairmen. Certification is needed, representatives of Poland, the Baltic states, Germans, Ukrainians and Russia should be invited to the commission. Read the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, an article on treason.

      Yes, Uniper itself is a living confirmation of the correctness of Gazprom's position.
      She invested about 2 million (I don't remember if it was bucks or euros) in SP700. SP2 was not allowed to launch, spitting on all the laws. Gazprom competently bankrupted its daughter and granddaughter associated with SP2 (at the same time, it paid off its costs with more than insane gas prices).
      But Uniper is now in a pre-bankruptcy state and is trying to sell the company to the state so that it itself is responsible for its jambs. But the state is not in a hurry, there are many such applicants. Those who invested in SP2 and related infrastructure. Only about 20 billion. Does Germany need it? This state does not like to be held accountable for its actions.
      This is not to mention the expropriation of Gazprom's assets in Germany, for example.
      So Gazprom is 250% right.

    leaving the flow of fuel along the line equal to 67 million cubic meters instead of 167 set.

    The war is on, and "trading the Motherland" is already creepy as you like. Block everything and let the finger! Yes, it will be hard for us, but "death" will be for them. There is no need to give them time to prepare, to refuse our gas. And force majeure will disappear by itself. Or war or trade. Questions must be asked point-blank, only then will they be resolved. And so, again we will chew snot for decades.

    Nemchura, when you launch SP-2 without certification, then Gazprom will also take the turbine without permits. May be. Maybe. The main thing is to believe.

      SP2 will no longer be launched. This gas is redirected to internal energy consumption in Karelia

    Well, yes, accept it without all the documents, so then, if the opportunity arises, Gazprom will also be fined. In fig, in fig.

      Undoubtedly, the turbine must have all the accompanying documents, maybe it is faulty, why is it so difficult to make documents? you wanted her to pump gas for you, make documents and at the same time start SP2, if you need gas ..... and if you don’t need it, we can’t sell it for now .... we don’t obey the European court, 100 percent prepayment in rubles, on arrest of assets of the Russian Federation in the EU, we will arrest Western assets in the Russian Federation ..... since the EU has imposed illegal sanctions, the Russian Federation can generally do what it wants

    I just can't understand
    Why is Russia supplying gas to Germany at all?
    I mean, why is it for the population of Russia? And what would be so terrible for the population of Russia if the gas in Germany runs out?
    I think if Germany runs out of gas, that German consumers will very quickly deal with the "colleague of lawyers", the "objectivity" of which the author "does not hope", and with the leadership of Uniper and even with the leadership of Germany.
    I still can't understand - if Germany does not want to buy gas from Russia the way Russia wants to sell it - then why does our government want to sell it so much? Or have I forgotten about some measures to transfer to me, as a citizen of the Russian Federation, a share of the proceeds from gas sold for 1000+ euros?
    True, I don’t understand why the Russian government wants to provide Germany with gas so much? In my city, on a neighboring street, pensioners in houses built in the 1960s still cannot connect it without a bribe of 350.000 due to "no power". In our country, where it is much colder than in Germany, for our citizens there is no gas, it must be delivered to Germany and for this, sue for some kind of turbine. Awww....

      You are already an adult and it is false to understand that now both of them are of the same blood. If it were the USSR, then the Germans would not rock the boat, and now they command and drive money in front of someone's nose.

      Everything is very simple. We pay for gas. These euros are used to buy goods in Europe or in other countries.
      Do the population of Russia need imported goods?
      I think they are.

        Who is "us" being paid to? Preferably by name. And I really want to show how they pay me. Unless of course I fall into this "we". Until I noticed.
        Further, imported goods are probably needed. But only if they are bought in Europe, then they don’t give them to me, I buy them. And what is strange - MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE than in Europe. Therefore, someone's purchase of goods for "gas" euros and the purchase of goods by the population - somehow "does not fit" :)
        Although I think if we are talking about "assets" that are located in Europe, then YES, gas "Euros" are spent on their purchase. But calling the "acquirers" the "population of Russia" is not very successful.
        So... it doesn't count. But it was intersting.

      I do not know how it is in your country, but for many years I have been following the gasification of the area in which I live. Every year the percentage of gasification is growing. And they write specifically how many settlements received gas. How many km of gas pipelines have been built, which settlements have been connected, how many households.
      Unfortunately, the distances in the region are large - everything comes out not at all cheap.
      But the process is underway. Every year.

        Yeah, the "percentage" is "growing", I agree
        The "percentage" of gas supplies to Europe over 40 years has "increased" by only 3174 percent (from 6,8 to 200+ billion cubic meters, and actually higher), but the percentage of gasification of Russia is somehow growing from as much 8 percent in my city from 1989 to 2022. This is an awesome growth - only 400 times less than the free transfer of gas to Europe, what is it ... Now, if in 4000, then there would be something to talk about, right?
        The stub is clear that it is cheaper to build a gas pipeline to Europe than to connect a house to gas, it "comes out to be expensive." I can't figure out where to start laughing.
        I think you need to sign up for a job in the Government of the Russian Federation. They will appreciate your ability to speak "ultra-patriotic-Russian" nonsense.

    Marriage can and should be foisted through the courts. You see how they are given something worthless, but expensive, and they resist. They can fix it themselves if it doesn't work. It's always done in the West. You give oil and gas. On the nose, on the snotty, it's already winter.
