MOSCOW, May 7 – RIA News.
The Akademik Chersky pipelayer headed for the German port of Mukran, the Nord Stream 2 logistics center, where the pipes for the construction of the gas pipeline are stored, follows from the data from the Vesselfinder and Myshiptracking portals, which track ship movements. According to the portals, Academician Chersky is due to arrive in Murkan on May 8th.
Media: Germany will deprive Nord Stream 2 of its immunity to the gas directive
Earlier Thursday, the ship left the port of Kaliningrad and indicated the course to the German port of Lauffen.
The port of Murcan on the island of Rugen serves as a logistics terminal for the construction of Nord Stream 2. At present, the port already has the Fortuna pipe-laying barge of the MRTS company, which also meets the technical requirements of the Danish authorities for the completion of Nord Stream-2.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak in December reported that the use of Chersky is one of the options for completing the Nord Stream-2, but some time will be required for additional preparation of the vessel.
EU-tards being EU-tards. The only gas they will get from the yanquis in any volume is from Qatar.
These retards assume that Russia is desperate to sell natural gas to them and will take it up the ass to do so. No you brain dead fucks,
$14 billion can be earned elsewhere, easily. In fact, the Power of Siberia pipeline is already eroding the EU market.
I expect the following response:
1) Power of Siberia I will be doubled up or even tripled up. This will take years less to do since the pathway through the wilderness
including rock cuts have been done. It is just a matter of laying pipe and expanding pump station capacity. So at the very
least this will mean 70 bcm per year piped east.
2) Power of Siberia II is following another path which means it will eventually be doubled up as well. Its planned initial capacity
is 50 bcm/year. So a doubled configuration means 100 bcm.
3) There will be additional pipeline project designed to service Asia in addition to Yamal LNG and Sakhalin LNG.
So by 2030 we may see 170 bcm of export capacity from pipelines alone (over 200 bcm in total) oriented east. So Russia can
fully shift its exports east. This does not give EU-tards 10 years of frolic and play. Russia can constrict its supply to the EU
to say 100 bcm and let it eat 60 bcm of US (aka Qatari) LNG cake. They should get some indigestion from this. If they
keep on pulling their Russia hate tantrums in 2030, they will be left to swirl the toilet bowl, which is where they properly belong.
