    Despite Looming U.S. Sanctions, the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Will Likely Proceed

    It annoys me all the time when I read about the "bad consequences" for the transit states, that would lose money from the transit fees. Why is it a problem for Russia, Germany or Italy? We want good quality gas, a honest price and a reliable supply.

    Ukraine is a liability in this matter. Furthermore, they never maintened those pipelines.

    Why these various states between Russia and central and southern Europe believe they have a "divine right" to continue to syphon off Russian money?

    I don't want to pay for those russophobic states having higher gas prices. Afterall, they never even paid for.those pipelines, that were built by soviet union with russian money.

    As Enrico Mattei said 60 years ago,
    To opponents who charged that he was helping Communists and making Italy dependent on a capricious flow from the Soviet Union, Mattei answered that he bought from the cheapest source.

    http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,874635,00.html#ixzz1DAuoOBYh


    Russia and other countries have the right to choose how to send and receive goods, especially if the countries that now control the existing pipelines are using the transit as a political ransom.

    There is also another problem for Italy and its oil industry. They are mounting a fake russiagate for Salvini, but the main objective is to damage ENI (the Italian equivalent of Gasprom and Rosneft), that, btw owns Saipem, one of the companies building north stream 2.  

    History repeats itself,
    Under the leadership of Enrico Mattei ENI started importing Oil from Soviet Union in 1959 (first NATO country to do it), started building deals (without exploiting them) with north african countries that wanted independence from France, and challenged the hegemony of the "seven sisters". Three years later, on October 27, 1962, the americans (or the French) killed Enrico Mattei, putting a bomb in his airplane.

    Here an interesting article (in Italian)
    https://www.ilsussidiario.net/news/russiagate-sapelli-salvini-e-la-pedina-di-un-attacco-alleni/1906048/

    An intersting extract from the Us senat discussion from 9 january 2018 "Putin's asymmetric assault on democracy in Europe

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.foreign.senate.gov/download/rr-preface-and-exec-sum&ved=2ahUKEwjOzNqq-sDjAhXILlAKHWn6Dl0QFjABegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw21dUIsXSsefFOI-MrYurY6


    State-owned Russian energy firms also exert influence through Italian energy firms such as ENI, which is currently a partner of Gazprom in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline (see Chapter 4). At the request of Gazprom, though unbeknownst to its attendees, an ENI subsidiary reportedly sponsored a foreign policy conference at a think tank in Italy, where ‘‘it was stressed that Russia could be an important ally for the EU.’’ It is worth noting that Russia is Italy’s biggest supplier of natural gas, and Italian oil major ENI’s policy is to give priority to its relationship with Gazprom over Algerian suppliers. ENI has also signed a strategic partnership agreement with Gazprom, and pledged to cooperate with Gazprom both on the now cancelled South Stream pipeline and the under consideration Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

    Oh my, the poor virgin innocent dears threatened by Russian barbarians. When the yanquis engage in brazen coercion and
    influence pressure, well, that's the Holy Right of the Exceptional Nation. But when Italy tries to find a good price for
    gas and partners up with Russian gas suppliers, well, that's nefarious and a threat. F.O.A.D. you bloody lying hypocrites.

    Time for EU to wake up and smell the coffee. US LNG is an utter scam.

    1) The US simply does not have the fracked gas reserves to supply the EU in the long run. It imported 80 bcm of natural
    gas in 2018 from Canada. So any export capacity it has is an obvious sham.

    2) The US is currently selling LNG to the EU at well below its actual price to fool the EU into thinking it can get LNG
    for prices similar to piped gas. This is patent BS since LNG requires a huge amount of energy to liquify. The price
    markup against piped gas is 30% and cannot be made 3% or 0% with "technology" or other fantasy. There is no free lunch
    for liquefaction.

    What's especially amusing is that their implying that some how Gazprom is waging economic war against Algerian suppliers....Yes their suggesting the Federation is covertly fighting and economic war against Algeria, let that sink in! Yet another page out of 1984 'double think'...Allies are enemies (Algeria and Russia), enemies are allies (India and America).

    Nord Stream 2, EU drifting towards legal arbitration



    The EU never had a case. It can't claim that Gazprom being a Russian monopoly (extraction and not transport, BTW) violates EU rules.
    Gazprom's pipes are a method to purchase gas by EU entities for a low price from an offshore seller. Attempting to elevate
    the pipelines into an internal EU issues is absurd. The Bruxelles EU-tard bureaucrats are essentially insisting that only LNG
    can be purchased from offshore entities. But what about the on-shore re-gasification facilities? Are they a violation of EU's
    internal rules? What utter rubbish politically motivated posturing.

    The problem for Gazprom is that none of the EU based arbitration courts are objective. The worst one is in Holland, which brazenly
    acts as some re-trial kangaroo court. The Swedish one is also stationed in a hostile anti-Russian state. Gazprom should demand
    pure 3rd party arbitration based in South Asia or the Orient.

    Russia’s Novatek Hits Major Milestones In Arctic LNG Plans

    Russian gas producer Novatek closed on Monday the sale of stakes in its Arctic LNG 2 project, just days after Russia’s government approved the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) transshipment terminal that would help Novatek boost LNG exports from its operating and future LNG projects.

    Novatek, the largest Russian producer and exporter of LNG, announced today the closure of the stake sales to two Chinese companies and a Japanese consortium.

    In April, Novatek signed agreements with two Chinese companies, under which the Asian firms will become shareholders in the Arctic LNG project with 10 percent each. In June, Novatek signed a deal to sell another 10 percent in the project to a consortium of Mitsui & Co and Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC).

    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.

    Commenting on today’s closure of stake sales, Novatek’s Chairman of the Management Board, Leonid Mikhelson, said on Monday:

    “We now have formed the structure of the Project’s participants by successfully closing the sale of interests in Arctic LNG 2.”

    “The target level of NOVATEK’s participation has been reached, allowing us to make the final investment decision and optimally use the Company's cash flow to finance our new projects,” Mikhelson added.

    Today’s closing of stake sales comes days after Russia approved the construction of Novatek’s transshipment terminal in the region of Murmansk, with construction license expected next year and actual construction taking place between 2020 and 2023.

    Novatek plans LNG transshipment terminals in Murmansk and Kamchatka to reduce expenditures on LNG projects, including the Yamal LNG and the Arctic LNG 2 projects.

    Lukoil to sign documents on acquisition of 5% in UAE project

    The term of the concession is 40 years

    ASTRAKHAN, July 23. /TASS/. Lukoil plans to acquire a 5% stake in the offshore gas project Ghasha in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that is currently held by UAE’s ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company), Chief Executive Officer of the Russian oil production giant Vagit Alekperov told reporters on Tuesday.

    "I hope we will sign [the document] on entry by 5% in September-October," Alekperov said, adding that this will most probably take place in October. "The active final part of negotiations is underway," he noted.

    "We will buy from ADNOC," the top manager noted.

    It was reported earlier that Lukoil considers the option of entering the Ghasha offshore gas concession in the UAE. The term of the concession is 40 years and it comprises Hail, Ghasha, Dalma and other offshore fields in the Al Dhafra area.

    Italy's Eni (25%), Germany's Wintershall (10%), and Austria's OMV (5%) are parties to the concession.

    Danish delay threatens Nord Stream 2 progress


    Russia could miss the deadline to begin pumping gas to Europe through the controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, unless Denmark approves construction in its waters in the next few weeks.

    Russia needs to make clear that if Nord Stream II does not go ahead that the EU will be paying a lot more for liquified gas being shipped... whether from Russia or the US or anywhere else.

    If Germany wants to let the little countries in the EU screw up this deal they need to be very clear it was not Russians that are costing them money...

    Ironically in terms of trade... it would actually benefit Russia if the EU had to pay more for their energy as it would make Russian products more competitive in other markets...

    Eh Russia never got Norway's permission to build that pipe in their waters to start with. So if a country decides to violate Russia's waters with its own building project that would be okay?.

    That's kind American of Russia!. Doing what you want then telling the other country play ball or else.

    Ukrainians are begging Russians for a transit contract renewal.

    https://www.kyivpost.com/ukraine-politics/naftogaz-waiting-for-response-from-gazprom.html

    Naftogaz waiting for response from Gazprom


    NJSC Naftogaz Ukrainy expects from Gazprom a formal response to the 10-year transit contract proposed by the European Commission with an annual volume of 60 billion cubic meters, Yuriy Vitrenko, the executive director of Naftogaz Ukrainy, has said.

    They say that Gazprom wants a contract for transit not for 10 years, as proposed by the European Commission, but only half a year or a year, until it completes Nord Stream 2. It would be appreciated for Gazprom to respond officially to the EC proposal. If Gazprom does not accept this offer, let it offer its own option. And preferably with all the detail,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

    “For example, whether Gazprom is ready to unlock in practice the possibility for other companies to transit gas from the territory of the Russian Federation. We will carefully consider it. The Ukrainian side has repeatedly stressed that we are interested in continuing the transit, therefore we are taking a constructive position,” added Vitrenko.

    The executive director of the NJSC drew attention to the fact that if information about Gazprom’s readiness to enter into a contract for just a year and a half is true, this proves the Russian side’s intention to completely abandon Ukrainian transit after the completion of the Nord Stream 2 project.

    Naftogaz confirms on its official Facebook page that the Russian side has not yet officially announced the version of the “short” contract.

    I am sorry made a mix-up, I meant to say Denmark.

    I am saying threating Denmark into green lighting is a pure American move, which people like Garry whine about all the time.

    Russia is threatening Denmark? You not smoking weed are you?

    Nord Stream AG initially filed application for laying the nord stream 2 along the first nord stream, which would have taken the pipeline through Denmark territorial waters. After it became apparent that Denmark is in no mood of allowing that, that application was withdrawn and subsequent requests were filed which takes the nord stream 2 through Denmark EEZ which is actually international waters.

    Can you read....I was responding to Garry who was saying quote

    "Russia needs to make clear that if Nord Stream II does not go ahead that the EU will be paying a lot more for liquified gas being shipped".

    That is threating, did I say Russia was actively threating Denmark no, I said doing that would be a threat. Which is a common tactic we use in the US they whine about all the time.

    Also no there is no official documents saying Nord Stream 2 will pass-throughs Denmark EZZ. None that I have see anyways, you can post if you have such information.

    Russia needs to threaten to upgrade its EEZ into an agreement-only transit zone. No shipping without permission in this zone.

    Let's see the "freedom of navigation" knights respond to that.

    “For example, whether Gazprom is ready to unlock in practice the possibility for other companies to transit gas from the territory of the Russian Federation. We will carefully consider it. The Ukrainian side has repeatedly stressed that we are interested in continuing the transit, therefore we are taking a constructive position,” added Vitrenko.

    The executive director of the NJSC drew attention to the fact that if information about Gazprom’s readiness to enter into a contract for just a year and a half is true, this proves the Russian side’s intention to completely abandon Ukrainian transit after the completion of the Nord Stream 2 project.

    Naftogaz confirms on its official Facebook page that the Russian side has not yet officially announced the version of the “short” contract.


    The EU is full of anti-Russian sh*t. Delinquent payers and thieves like the Banderastanis cannot be expected to get 10 year contracts.
    They can at best hope for 6 month probationary contracts. That is the norm in the business world. The Bruxelles EU-tard bureaucrats
    are living in their own fantasy land.

    Eh Russia never got Norway's permission to build that pipe in their waters to start with. So if a country decides to violate Russia's waters with its own building project that would be okay?.

    It is going through their EEZ, not their territorial waters, and not even their mainland... they have an island near the path of the pipes.

    Russia is not threatening to build it anyway, they have rerouted it in a direction where they don't need Denmarks permission to build the pipeline.

    If they were acting like the US they would have declared the current regime in Denmark to be a dictatorship and bomb them and declared the opposition leader leader of Denmark and have a bit of regime change... and of course seize their foreign assets of course to pay for everything.

    "Russia needs to make clear that if Nord Stream II does not go ahead that the EU will be paying a lot more for liquified gas being shipped".

    That is threating, did I say Russia was actively threating Denmark no, I said doing that would be a threat. Which is a common tactic we use in the US they whine about all the time.

    Russia has built pipelines to transport gas to the EU, the Soviets built the first ones, but some of the pipelines going through the Ukraine have not been maintained and gas gets blocked or even stolen, so now they are spending their own money and money of their partners to build alternative routes to ensure the EU gets the gas it needs to meet its energy needs for the next few decades... Denmark is trying to stop the process. Russia has no threatened to invade, there have been no claims of regime change or sanctions against Denmark... except from the US of course... they have no other reason to block the programme.

    The fact is that if they don't build Nord Stream II then the EU is in the shit because Russia is cutting off the pipes through the Ukraine whether there are alternative options or not... if there are not then the EU will need to build a lot more terminals to receive LNG from ships... the Russians can still deliver it cheaper than the US, but the EU will pay more for a more expensive and less reliable product.

    Also no there is no official documents saying Nord Stream 2 will pass-throughs Denmark EZZ. None that I have see anyways, you can post if you have such information.

    The pipes go past a Danish island in the Baltic sea.

    The new plan will just put a kink in their design to take them out of territorial waters and into EEZ waters.

    Personally I think it is a good idea anyway as it will probably reduce the necessary transit fee costs that could have been paid to Denmark but now wont be.

    Bulgaria also pissed around with permission for south stream so the Russians decided to pump it to Turkey and they can sort it out... cost Bulgaria a good income... but I am sure their Washington masters have rewarded them.... NOT.

    The EU is full of anti-Russian sh*t. Delinquent payers and thieves like the Banderastanis cannot be expected to get 10 year contracts.

    Actually shoplifters get escorted from the store and a trespass notice issued against them to never come back into the store again.

    Ukraine should steal another Russian ship... I bet that will make them want to give them money to pump their gas through their pipes...

    Denmark is violating international law:

    1) It does not own the seabed in its EEZ. The EEZ only gives it rights to access minerals below the seabed
    and biological products from the seabed surface.

    2) The Nord Stream II pipe does not hinder any of the allowed activities in point (1). Instead of arguing
    that the pipe is a hindrance to resource extraction (which is the only argument that Denmark can make),
    it is dragging its heels pretending the EEZ is like territorial waters and it is right of Denmark to
    refuse access.

    3) Denmark has zero rights to refuse access to its EEZ since it is not territorial or possession waters and seabed.
    Special resource access rights do not give the rights holder all sorts of additional rights such as property
    and control rights. It cannot collect transit fees through its EEZ.

    Russia should lay the pipe and see what Denmark does. Russia would not be violating international law. Any
    hostile action by Denmark would be a brazen violation and amount to act of war and piracy.
