    The Ultimate goal of defeating Gazprom is the EastMed Pipeline that would be controlled by Israel. They could bypass the instability in Turkey and Syria to get all of the Arab and Cypriot gas that is coming on line.

    Whatever the route, as long as it bypasses the lunatics in Banderastan and Pooland. Just think about Turk Stream, the idea of Russia using a traditional
    enemy (check up on the history) as a route for such a critical export says a lot. The Turks are prepared to be rational and sane about
    the gas transit. The Slav "brothers" in eastern Europe are not.

    If they get new supplies of gas and don't need ours anymore, that is a problem. At the very least those new supplies will lower what we can charge for it.

    Here is a question about international law for resource transit.

    Denmark is harassing the Nord Stream II project because it transits its EEZ (economic not territorial zone). Now suppose we have
    and LNG tanker train operating in "international waters" but inside Russia's (or some other country's) EEZ. How come Russia
    has no right to regulate such resource transit like Denmark as in the case of the Nord Stream II pipeline. Looks like a patently
    nonsensical distinction. So any resource transit (container or other shipping) through Russia's EEZ is open to full Russian
    control. That means that the EEZ is de facto the territorial waters of Russia and in fact, more restrictive than the current
    Law of the Sea deal where ships have a right to pass even through territorial waters if they follow the proper procedure.

    Next time some clown yaps about international law, consider how contradictory and absurd it can be.

    No.  It wont.  It wont be enough through transport.  Would meet a fraction of the needs of Europe.  Hence why there are multiple sources from Russia to EU alone.  That isn't including all their other gas imports.  Are you even aware how much is transported to EU per year? Or how much they require to be transported through pipeline + LNG?

    There is absolutely no way a single pipeline, or even two or three will fill that need.  Yeah, it will take a hit against Russian pipelines in that they will reduce import from Russia but wouldn't cut it.

    Plus now you got EU hating Israel for nearly everything so they wont agree with an Israeli controlled pipeline either. Plus, Europe including Germany refused to allow a single source. India, China and the rest all stated similar. So while Russia will never be dominant in supply, it would definitely have customers. AND ultimately, getting the Arab nations to agree with Israel regarding a pipeline is a major joke.

    But, as the article states since I think some people cant use translate very well:  US failed to get the Germans to agree.

    Senate hearings on the state Department budget turned into a scandal. Instead to give the Secretary of state Mike Pompeo another check, the senators gave him a little interrogation, during which he demanded to report about the task execution blocking "Nord stream — 2". To give a detailed response, the head of American diplomacy is clearly not enough props, it was felt that it would be very useful a white flag to wave them in front of the senators, but was confined to the verbal statement: "We have done everything possible to dissuade the Europeans, primarily Germans, from the construction of the Nord Stream 2. We have not achieved success to date".

    The firm position of the German leadership was recently confirmed by the German foreign Minister Heiko Maas, who responded to criticism from Vice-President Michael Pence on financing of NATO and the construction of "Nord stream — 2": "Nothing new there. We are not surprised, and we won't change our arguments or load sharing (funding NATO. — Approx. ed.) nor that with regard to the "Nord stream — 2".

    American hopes that the change of leadership in the party of Angela Merkel will create the necessary conditions for the waiver of the "Nord stream — 2", also did not materialize. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, "the heiress" Angela Merkel said in February: "Nord stream — 2" for me, as for others, of course, not the same project that I support with all my heart. However, the fundamental decisions have already been made, the project cannot be turned back." However, it emphasized the negative attitude to the main (and, in fact, the only) instrument of U.S. diplomacy: "the threat of sanctions — not the best way to communicate between friends and partners. USA pursue their own economic interests, which is perfectly legal. But Washington should hear the answer of Germany: we are diversifying, we have other sources of supply". Mike Pompeo, probably, have heard the German position, and while he has nothing to object.

    However, your budget the Secretary of state still got, although the state Department a few achievements recently: "Nord stream — 2" is based, the European Union refuses to join the sanctions against Iran, Maduro is still in power in Venezuela, and about the creation of a broad anti-Chinese coalition, which is so necessary to the administration of trump can only dream of. Even the biggest American success of the last time — the arrest of Julian Assange, most likely, is the achievement of the U.S. Treasury, not American diplomacy. Very strange coincidence: on 11 March, the IMF (which the Americans and their allies still remains a big influence) decides to allocate the deeply unpopular (and not very competent) President of Ecuador a loan of 4.2 billion dollars and a month later, Assange is under arrest at the request of U.S. authorities.

    Rumor has it that Belarus is shooting itself in the foot by going to stop buying Russian overpriced and poor quality oil for imports from Lithuania and Latvia.

    Isn't that shit way more expensive?

    Numerous governments around the world have been regime changed by the USA for doing less.

    This sounds like some sort of joke. Belorussian refineries would have been built to handle the "poor quality"
    (i.e. higher sulfur and viscosity) Russian oil. The Urals grade is cheaper than other grades for these
    reasons. So "overpriced" sounds like some tantrum excrement from a drama queen. Do they want it for next
    to nothing even though their refineries can handle it without issue?

    This smells of misinformation propaganda to me.

    That is probably what Belarus is now doing by importing oil from other countries, so they can process it and sell to Ukraine.

    Oh well, hopefully they use their own money.

    Russia’s Novatek sells 20% in Arctic LNG 2 to Chinese firms

    Russian gas producer Novatek said that it had signed agreements with two Chinese companies, under which the Asian firms will become shareholders in the Arctic LNG project with 10 percent each.
    Novatek, the largest Russian producer and exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG), signed an agreement with CNOOC and another deal with China National Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Company (CNODC), a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC). CNOOC and CNODC will enter the Arctic LNG project with a 10-percent participation interest each.

    “We are very glad that CNOOC has joined our Arctic LNG 2 project as our new partner, since China represents one of the key consuming markets for our LNG sales,” Leonid Mikhelson, Novatek’s Chairman of the Management Board, said in a statement.

    “Arctic LNG 2 will be a game-changer in the global gas market, and our proven track record to successfully build an LNG facility in the Arctic zone, combined with a proven logistical model with access to prospective markets and large hydrocarbon resource base will ensure the successful implementation of this world class project,” according to Mikhelson.

    Earlier this year, France’s Total, a partner of Novatek in the producing Yamal LNG project, signed a deal to buy a direct 10-percent interest in Arctic LNG 2. The project’s final investment decision (FDI) is expected to be made in the second half of 2019, with plans to start up the first liquefaction train in 2023, according to the French oil and gas major.

    Earlier this month, Novatek signed a preliminary agreement with Vitol for supply from Arctic LNG.

    “We commenced contracting LNG volumes from our new project Arctic LNG 2,” Novatek’s First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board, Lev Feodosyev, said in early April, adding that “LNG volumes sold at our transshipment terminals ensures the flexibility of LNG supplies around the world and allows us to create LNG hubs in the Asia-Pacific and Atlantic basins.”

    While keeping a grip on the European gas market, Russia looks to boost LNG deliveries to the growing Asian market with storage hubs close to end-users to reduce freight costs and increase flexibility in deliveries.Earlier this month, Novatek signed a preliminary agreement with Vitol for supply from Arctic LNG.

    Apparently, the bad quality oil I mentioned earlier sent to Belarus? It was actually intentionally tampered with. A private company at a metering terminal, someone spiked the oil:

    As reported Demin, stuffing organochlorine compounds was carried out via the metering station owned by a private entity "Smartasset-Terminal". The offices of several private organizations in Samara now there are investigations.

    An investigation is being done. Someone tampering with oil which would cause major damage and sales is serious. I imagine at this point, whoever did it should face huge punishment. I am assuming it is a Ukrainian national that did it.

    If they want to borrow money from Russia to buy oil from other countries that is fine... as long as Russia gets paid back with interest who cares what they do with it?

    An investigation is being done. Someone tampering with oil which would cause major damage and sales is serious. I imagine at this point, whoever did it should face huge punishment. I am assuming it is a Ukrainian national that did it.

    So what is that trying to say... they put impurities in Russian oil imports so they could justify buying more expensive oil from other countries?

    Who cares.

    They are buying fuel from other countries so they can sell it to the ukraine... but that oil will cost them more and will therefore cost the Ukraine more too, which is the point of Russia stopping sales to the ukraine isn't it? Russia wasn't expecting the Ukraine to just not get oil from anywhere else. They just want them to pay more for it from someone else.

    Funny thing would be to check out the board members of this private company.... seems private gas companies in the Ukraine include famous last names like Biden... and when those companies get investigated then the prosecutor gets fired by Poroshenko.... but not now.

    About the contaminated oil sent to Belarus.

    Apparently a full on investigation and the plant is currently shut down for until investigation over. Heads will roll for sure.
