Gas trap: the destroyed Nord Stream boomerang hit the United States


The gas crisis in Europe has a dual nature. It is partly a natural process and partly man-made (political). The US is also stricken by an energy crisis that, unlike the European one, is purely man-made and fueled by the greed of gas traders. In a way, this is Europe's "return of debt" to America itself, which is directly involved in the problems in the energy sector of the Old World.


The destruction of the Nord Streams, which is very beneficial for Washington politically, has aggravated the internal difficult situation with gas supply, shortages and, as a result, the cost of the resource. However, despite rising US electricity bills, the White House will not in any way restrict (let alone ban) natural gas exports this winter as it seeks to help Europe through its energy crisis. Reuters writes about this on Tuesday, citing two of its sources who participated in the discussions.

In fact, after the failure of the Nord Stream gas infrastructure, the United States is the monopoly supplier of energy resources to Europe. And they have no other choice. Europe sees this situation very well, and if Washington, for the sake of domestic conjuncture, went to restrict exports, then the days of the transatlantic coalition would be numbered. US geopolitical intrigues boomerang hit ordinary Americans.

Now America exports more than 90% of its LNG, 70% of this volume goes to the EU. But high prices and low inventories in the United States have led the White House to consider possibly limiting LNG exports. The analysis showed that this measure would disrupt US relations with its key ally, the EU, whose citizens Washington strategists also left without gas for their own purposes.

However, there are still reasons for dissatisfaction on the part of Brussels and individual EU states. Even record volumes of imports from the US are not enough to fully meet the needs of Europe. Gas from Russia is urgently needed for the EU market, but American appetites and hegemonic inclinations have deprived it of security and thus security. Therefore, the decision of the White House not to restrict is purely political and compromise in relation to its own people.

    Well, let them pick their Texas.
    They are picking it up.
    If gas prices in Europe rise many times in winter, how will America itself warm itself?
    Either their prices will skyrocket, or they will limit supplies to Europe.
    Anyway, someone will either have to overpay a lot, or be very cold.

      No, Europe will have to freeze and overpay, and the amers will only overpay. What an interesting life...
      Yes, do not care about them, the main thing is that it is warm and not expensive

    after the Nord Stream gas infrastructure was disabled, the United States is the monopoly supplier of energy resources to Europe

    The USA consumes 19.7% of all world energy resources and produces only 13% of the world's. How can so many of our own come from only if others (Russian LNG) are resold for export to Europe

    The United States is sucking all the juices out of the countries of its allies in order to be afloat themselves. Due to this, in fact, for the money of the allied countries, they provide military assistance to the Ukrofascists. , another US bluff. America has been standing on a bluff and a lie for many years. But this cannot be forever. Soon Europe will wake up and then the USA will remain in splendid isolation. And that's the end of America's hegemony.

    In Kaliningrad, it is necessary to build a gas liquefaction hub, the issue will immediately be removed from the flows and everything in Russia from the villages will be gasified and the gas will spread throughout the country.

    It is interesting that the author does not take into account one essential detail. And how did it happen that this summer there were explosions at FIVE !!! American gas liquefaction plants. Including the largest Why limit something on papers, when it's easier to blow it up. Like Nord Stream 2, for example. You say - madness? Americans are not capable of this?! Oh well))) And then who blew up the World Trade Center? And so - yes, they export almost all liquefied gas. Which they could produce, on the remnants of the equipment. Therefore, in the United States, the price of gas is three hundred and kopecks, and in Europe - well, you yourself know. And where will the gas workers go from the island ...
