Critical situation: Gazprom lowered pressure in Nord Stream to 20%

Gazprom has decided to reduce fuel supplies via Nord Stream, as another turbine engine will be decommissioned at the Portovaya compressor station. On July 25, the Russian gas corporation warned its partners about its actions.

Gazprom explained that its actions were dictated by the end of the period between overhauls before the overhaul of the engine. As a result, from July 27, the pressure in the joint venture is reduced to 20 percent - so, instead of the planned 167 million cubic meters of gas per day, Europeans will be able to receive only 33 million cubic meters per day.

This seriously complicates the position of European countries that buy Russian gas. In anticipation of the winter season, the gas storages of the Old World are 65 percent full, and by November 1 this figure should reach 80 percent to successfully overcome the cold coming in a few months. At the current rate of UGS filling, this plan will not be fulfilled.

The critical situation with the transportation of natural gas is forcing European countries to reduce the level of its consumption already now, which is not capable of fundamentally affecting the situation. The launch of Nord Stream 2, the certification of which was previously suspended, and the gas pipeline itself, can save Europe in this regard. Probably European autumn politicians they will have to seriously think about getting out of the situation in which they have driven themselves by imposing anti-Russian sanctions.

Meanwhile, on the morning of July 27, according to the ICE exchange, the cost of gas rose sharply, from 2200 to 2300 euros per thousand cubic meters, then slowly began to decline.

    Let the Europeans now enjoy the heat. And in winter, let them get high from the cold.
    Washing with cold water is good for health.
    And how nature will rest from burning these dirty coal, gas and oil products - this is the fulfillment of a European dream.
    In general, Europe should become closer to nature. Firewood, grass and manure - this is the bright future of the EU.

    Yes, it's the other way around with charcoal. Somewhere, information flashed that some objects were being transferred to it and coal-fired thermal power plants were being reactivated. Apparently coal is easier than gas.

    Europe is playing with fire.
    A little more and Russia's patience will burst. First, we will stop supplying resources - completely. And then nationalization was carried out. Europeans will appreciate. Their euros will greatly depreciate, and the industry will be bent. And also losses in the territory of the former Ukraine - investments and debts. All this will be lost by Europe.

    It will not be easy for us either, but we have material resources, and currencies are heaps. And having mastered all the nationalized good, the economy will become much stronger.

    War on three fronts. Financial. Economic. Military. And everything is connected. The dollar / euro did not collapse, the European economy is still holding on, the quick liberation of Ukraine did not work out. Everything is moving according to a slow scenario and everything will not end soon (not this year). I think that the parties will take a break by the winter. Which will negatively affect the economy of Ukraine, where chaos will begin. Then the peacekeepers. Then a section.

    The haze, when it is false through and through, subsides most quickly in the dark, invigorating coolness and on an empty stomach.
