Gazprom increases payments to Romania for unused pipeline

Many Eastern European countries have transit gas pipelines on their territory, through which Russia has pumped gas to Western Europe for many years. Everyone, from Ukraine to Romania, made money on this type of international business. However, this year Bucharest has increased its revenues by almost two million dollars, more than last year, but not for transit, but for its absence. Russian "Gazprom" pays the Romanian side for the abandonment of the gas pipeline in favor of another route. This is stated in the report of the local gas transmission operator.

In total, the Romanian operator Transgaz received more than $2022 million in transit in the first half of 8, which is almost $2 million more than in the previous corresponding period. Moreover, the increase in profitability was brought by strange contractual obligations linking Moscow and Bucharest.

Under the tripartite compensation agreement, which is valid until next year, tariffs and fees are paid at the rates for booking the capacity of the transit section (a protective measure in such a case of refusal of the supplier). Even the European Commission participated in the termination of the agreement on the Trans-Balkan gas pipeline.

Gazprom made a mistake when it concluded such a contract with very unfavorable conditions both during the term of the agreement and in the event of its early termination, all the more so when it failed to foresee the change in supply routes, which is planned for more than one year.

At the same time, it turned out that the Trans-Balkan pipeline is no longer interesting for the holding in terms of deliveries to Hungary, since now much larger volumes are pumped through the Turkish Stream, but payments for "transit" to the Romanian treasury continue and even increase.

    This is already tired of discussing. This is not how the war is won. This is how they lose the war.
    What are the contractual obligations after the imposition of sanctions and freezing of accounts? What are the contractual obligations after the confiscation of assets?

    The European Union graciously allowed Russia to supply coal and ammonia to the West. And the Kremlin is gleefully rubbing its hands: we have won. The fact that Russia is losing in the Kremlin does not see. Turkey blocks the Mir system and supplies bayraktars to Ukraine. Russia is building a nuclear power plant for them and supplying them with gas. Which Turkey resells to Europe.

    Ukraine shells Russian cities. Russia supplies gas to Europe through Ukraine and pays for transit.

    Action example. Iran supplied drones to Russia. Today Kyiv severed diplomatic relations with Iran.
    Anti-example of actions. Germany and France supply weapons to Ukraine. Putin is negotiating with Macron and Scholz.

    If the EU lifts sanctions on SP-2, then Gazprom will gladly flood Europe with cheap gas. And he will shout about his victory. Does the Kremlin not calculate that the industry of Europe will fill up Ukraine with weapons after that?

    The fulfillment of contractual obligations after the imposition of sanctions and the supply of weapons to Ukraine is UNACCEPTABLE. Negotiating with Western countries is UNACCEPTABLE. The exchange of prisoners is UNACCEPTABLE. If this does not reach the Kremlin, then defeat in the war is inevitable.

      Bakhtiyar, if suddenly the body gets sick and on this basis there is a conflict between the kidneys and the liver? Victory, one of them - the death of the organism. Try to look at what is happening from this point.

      Is our civilization dying? laughing

    Non-war is non-war, but profits are profits.

    The conclusion about the competence of the Shazprom officials could be made after the payments to Poland... The wages of the Gazprom workers are also not weak.
