EU pushes Gazprom to repair Nord Stream gas pipelines


Russian gas company Gazprom has been granted permission to survey the damaged section of Nord Stream in Danish waters. The expedition, consisting of representatives of the holding and specialists from the gas pipeline operator Nord Stream AG, has already begun work on the site.


According to reports received from the company, immediately after obtaining permission to enter the study area, the vessel chartered by Nord Stream moved into the area and began to survey the site of the pipeline damage. Its duration will depend on access restrictions to the damage zone due to weather conditions.

In addition to weather conditions, which are getting worse by the hour, as the season of storms begins in the Baltic Sea, legal conflicts prevent the full-fledged work of experts. The thing is that the radius of the restricted zone two months after the attack was reduced to 500 meters instead of the previous five nautical miles. This significantly narrows the scope of the survey and puts the entire expedition on the verge of “breaking the law”.

However, legal obstacles can not be expected: if the EU had not been interested in Gazprom's work on the pipeline, its representatives would not have been allowed to access the damaged pipeline. In fact, the EU leadership is pushing the Russian company as transparently as possible to investigate, make a final conclusion about the destruction, make a decision on restoration (at its own expense, of course) and, of course, to resume full-fledged gas supplies in order to avoid complete depletion of Europe's gas resources in the spring.

      Haven't heard anything smarter. So far, Gazprom is selling gas to fill the budget of the Motherland. True, not everyone has the brain to see it. But that doesn't change the fact.

        You can still sell weapons to European countries and the United States to replenish the budget and stocks of Ukraine.

      What would you fix? And the United States and small-shaven people must pay for the repairs.

    What did you send the fraer back?

    All this is quite expected.
    Even for the current alternatively gifted leadership of Europe, it became obvious that the United States had them hard fucked.
    Europe will have to solve energy problems on its own. Problems with deindustrialization (with the prevailing prices for energy resources) are unsolvable in principle.
    Therefore, the countries of Europe are quietly surrendering back.
    It seems that Russia (at least in the near future) will not be engaged in the repair of SP and SP2. And the Europeans suspect it. Even Scholz made an incredible mental effort and remembered that, it turns out, there is an almost new and perfectly serviceable Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, but for some reason gas is not flowing through it. The question is asked, as it were, into space. Immediately after that, Poland withdrew Gazprom's stake in EuRoPol Gaz, which made it even more impossible to pump gas through this gas pipeline.
    As the temperature drops in Europe, Scholz will inevitably remember that the volumes of gas pumped through the GTSU can be many times greater than the current miserable 42 million cubic meters. cubic meters per day. Which will inevitably lead to the desire to surrender Ukraine to Russia on any terms. If only she (Russia) would ensure an uninterrupted supply of Europe with gas in the required volumes and at least a little cheaper than "American" gas.
    The cold is also not an aunt.

        So judging by the rhetoric, it will soon get out of control. Just because the US no longer needs this control, what they have already done.
        And control while maintaining the loyalty of the controlled is expensive. The United States no longer has the resources for this.

    I hope Putin does not wag his tail and run into his arms for the opportunity to once again pump gas to Europe ... especially at his own expense. In short, another divorce of us sucker. The Anglo-Saxons committed a terrorist attack, causing huge damage to Russia ... and they are trying to make Russia, at its own expense, suffer more losses by correcting this damage ... that is, to suffer double damage ... but the benefit ..... most likely will be banned.

    Conclusions sucked from the finger. What you need has already been removed. And to forbid, for them, how not to say the loss of an already omitted image. After all, everyone perfectly understands who did it.

    Without an official announcement of the lifting of sanctions against NS-2 and SP, without guarantees that they will start working in full mode without attempts to correct gas prices, it is a sin for us to even think about repairs. What is the point of planning and starting pipe repairs if they remain unclaimed? The EU must first decide whether it needs our gas and whether it can prove it to its boss. Everything else is secondary.

    The first counter questions to restore the pipe should be: return the money stolen from Russia! Remove sanctions! After that, address your problems to Russia.

      As soon as the gas pipeline is repaired, the Anglo-Saxons will blow it up again in any way!
      So, as they say, for Russia to repair the gas pipeline - "the game is not worth the candle"!

      In addition, the European Union - in the sense of the legitimacy of any agreements with Russia and Gazprom - is an absolutely EMPTY place!

      The EU has pumped its fate to Washington and London! In this sense, the EU is already economically dead - and it should lie in the morgue.

      The fate of the Europeans is already predetermined - to become the Europeans "cannon fodder" for the United States with their American "new world order" in the theater of war in the US TMV with Russia.

    There is such a notion that the guilty party pays for the damages. Of course, in this case, the perpetrators were not identified (most likely they were aliens), therefore, the party most interested in restoring the damaged pipeline should pay for the repair work. If there are two or more of these parties, then the restoration must take place at the expense of the funds of these parties. There shouldn't be another. For the sole reason that others should not blow up pipes on their own territory.

    They'll fix it, and then blow it up again. Nothing complicated. And Russia can't do anything.
    There is still such a problem: if you do not urgently make repairs, then you need to change the entire thread. Safety requirements (pipe metal corrosion). If our gas is not allowed into the pipe, then maybe they will not explode.
    We'll see everything soon. If the gas is repaired and launched through a pipe to the EU (and the pipe is not blown up after that), then the Kremlin has caved in to the United States in some way, but we will not know about it!

    Yeah. Gazprom will repair the gas pipeline, and it will be blown up again by "unidentified terrorists"?
    No. Let the EU not "push it as transparently as possible", but buy the gas pipeline from Russia and restore it on its own. At your own expense, of course.
    Because the EU needs gas, but should a Russian company bear losses from a terrorist attack, restore, and have the risk of repeated terrorist attacks?
