Gazprom made the situation with the turbine for Nord Stream irreversible


Losing popularity with voters due to ineffective opposition to the challenges of the time, German Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz decided to make a frank populist move and on August 3 personally “found and inspected” a turbine for the Nord Stream gas pipeline. Although even before his visit to the Siemens Energy plant in the city of Mülheim an der Ruhr, everyone was well aware of where the unit was located and that it was not possible to send it to the Russian Federation. But the head of state needed any points, as well as an event that would send the right to move to the Russian side. It is expected that a simple visit could not "move" the turbine from its place.


The response of "Gazprom" was not long in coming. The same evening, the holding refused to accept the turbine, since, according to the company's leaders, there were no appropriate permits for this. Scholz's PR move came to nothing.

The sanctions regimes of Canada, the EU, the UK and the inconsistency of the current situation with the current contractual obligations on the part of Siemens make the delivery of the 073 engine to the Portovaya CS impossible

- said in the message of the telegram channel "Gazprom".

This rather veiled message actually means that the Russian side refuses to accept the restored gas pumping unit, despite the emphasis and suggestion made by Scholz on it. From now on, this is the principled position of the Russian Federation and Gazprom, repeated more than once.

Of course, such an approach by Russian representatives will almost immediately be criticized and called an attempt to disguise the true goals and desires to leave Europe without gas on the eve of the winter season, when compensating underground gas storage tanks are being filled.

In this case, the Russian side is simply doing what the European side has been striving for the past few years - reducing the EU's dependence on gas from the Russian Federation. In Europe, the gas embargo, established by the supplier himself, cannot be understood and understood. Until nothing changes in this regard, the turbine will collect dust in the city of Mülheim an der Ruhr, and Germany and all of Europe will receive less Russian gas. By and large, the Russian gas monopolist made it clear that the situation with the turbine has become irreversible and it is impossible to solve the problem within the framework of the current sanctions regime.

From the point of view of legal norms, Gazprom is absolutely right, but the world is judged by political background. In the meantime, Nord Stream is operating on two sets of compressors - the operating one, the resource of which is expiring, and the spare one. If the representatives of Berlin do not immediately acquire wisdom and understanding of the situation, then Europe will be completely without gas.

    Not only examined, but also repaired. And he said that there was no need to send more turbines to Canada. Olaf will do everything himself. Faster and cheaper.

      It was necessary to show how Olaf personally tightened the nut on the turbine and said: now it’s really ready

    And earlier it was written here that Gazprom overcame everyone, and with the help of Germany, repaired a turbine in Canada ....
    And now he doesn’t accept it himself, although NATO Germany, which provided the repair as a partner, is directly pushing through?

    Get the details, who, where, for how much, who signed, whose bonuses for it ....

    So it is, and Gazprom and the budget of the Russian Federation will have lost revenues ...

    From the point of view of legal norms, Gazprom is absolutely right, but in the world they are judged by political background.

    Where does such confidence about legal norms come from (?): if the case goes to court, then everything may well turn into penalties, as it has already happened.

    If the representatives of Berlin do not immediately acquire wisdom and understanding of the situation, then Europe will be completely without gas.

    If this refers to Russian gas, then yes, they will be left without it earlier than planned. They will have to go through relatively difficult times, and although in 3-5 years they will be worse than before the crisis, they will be better than now. And with such a development of events, we will be left without income from the “other” side earlier than we “planned” + large expenses for the reversal of gas rivers ...

      There can be many reasons why ours do not accept a turbine.
      Unable to deliver from Germany due to sanctions.
      There are no documents confirming that scheduled repairs were carried out
      (which is most likely) - we cannot put non-certified equipment into operation and in the event of a breakdown of this compressor, all dogs will be allowed to attack us.
      Etc. etc.

        according to the latest information, the documents for the turbine are issued in the jurisdiction of england, there are several offices guaranteeing its operation from england, so according to english laws they can turn it off at any time in their own interests, since england is not part of the eu and we have a contract with the eu country

    In the war, as in the war. In the short term, there may be (or maybe not), a decrease in profits. In the long term, a complete akhtung for Germany and the end of Scholz's liver sausage.

    so it turns out there are lawyers in Gazprom! Yes, there is only one option: the Canadian contractor returns the turbine to Gazprom.

    Bravo, Gazprom.. good
    Drowning all these goats in the bureaucratic procedures they created is a strong move.
    And time is already working against them.

    Yes, only in this case it is necessary to be principled to the end for both them and us. And it turns out that everyone is half pregnant ... winked
