    I suspect we are making a bigger deal out of this than we really should.

    They sent a boat able to do the job.... everyone knew that is the work it does... they changed the destination repeatedly and probably monitored what effect that had... for instance if they said the next port of call was x and some NATO military vessels with special forces on board for boarding uncooperative vessels and taking them over arrived then of course they would just keep sailing... with a skeleton crew (the normal crew could easily have flown back and had a months break and rest to prepare for the new job ahead... it doesn't take a specialist to sail a ship from here to there...

    A few nice close in photos of her as she sailed might have indicated whether the crew were normal crew of naval spetsnaz in disguise... of course if they were military and armed they would not have been able to stop anywhere anyway.

    The fact that the British didn't do anything like send a dozen ships to escort them and take lots of photos and point out that this was pretty much the only ship capable of completing NSII within the current contract stipulations means they knew there was not much they could do about it... I am sure there are plenty of ships the Russians would love to be able to board and take over around the place... revealing some embarrassing secrets I suspect...

    Why draw attention to a situation where you are impotent to effect the outcome?

    Besides they were already sending their entire fleet to the Arctic for some stupid exercise to freeze their balls off.... at least their ship engines wont over heat up there...

    Western media are shocked that Russia is proceeding with the completion of Nord Stream II. The tone of this
    coverage is as if Russia is quaking in fear of mighty US sanctions. In the real world, those sanctions have
    zero international weight. America's geopolitical ambitions and blackmail are not international law. Even
    if the yanquis act as if they are global empire, they are more like a joke.

    German Energy Regulator Deals Fresh Blow To Nord Stream 2 Project


    Germany’s energy regulator has declined to grant an exemption of rules governing the EU's internal gas market to the operators of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to carry gas from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

    The Federal Network Agency, Bundesnetzagentur, said on May 15 that the section of the pipeline that runs through German territory is not exempt from the EU gas directive under which production, transport, and distribution of energy should be independently organized.

    The agency said a waiver could only have been granted to the Nord Stream 2 consortium if the pipeline had been completed by May 23 last year.

    The consortium, which is led by Russia’s state-run Gazprom but also includes Western partners, said it disagreed with the decision, reiterating that while not physically complete the project had been economically functional. A spokesman said legal action was being considered.

    The dispute won’t affect the construction of the 1,230-kilometer pipeline, which is already long behind schedule, but is related to its operation once it is running.

    The $11 billion project has a capacity to export 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year. It is more than 90 percent complete with about 160 kilometers of pipeline remaining to be laid along the Baltic Sea floor near Denmark.

    The U.S. Congress passed a bill in December 2019 that allowed Washington to impose sanctions on any vessel that helps Russia complete the pipeline, forcing Western-owned ships to stop work.

    The United States opposes Nord Stream 2, saying it would strengthen Russia’s hold on Western Europe’s energy market and allow the Kremlin to avoid exports through Ukraine, depriving Kyiv of much-needed transit revenue.

    Russia claims Washington is seeking to block the project with the goal of exporting more U.S. liquefied natural gas to Europe.

    You have posted this BS several time already. RFERL is a US propaganda orifice that spins everything about Russia into ridiculous

    Between this guy and Owsai or whatever his name is in oil thread, we are bombarded with fake news, libel and outright bullshit. They keep quoting sites that should be banned sources.

    Navalny a doctor union which has no doctors and even 5th column Meduza news called them out on their fake claims? Or the fact one uses a CIA funded (and banned in multiple countries) Radio free Europe/Asia as a source?

    I think we should put a vote that all such sources should be instantly moved to a Fake News thread.

    We could do that but I prefer to see the relevant fake news in the relevant thread, so that to any casual reader such propaganda is identified immediately as such and is very clear.

    It is amusing that the western method is to claim to show all sides but only show their side, or present any opposition to their view in a prejudicial way to make it clear there is a good side and a bad side... most of the time the other side is ignored.

    The secret of RTs success is the revelation for those that care that there is another side to what they see on their own news channels and that it is logical and makes sense even if you don't agree with it.

    We should be thankful western media is so clumsy and awkward as to fund certain sources and then pretend to use those sources as if they are showing the other side of the story... ie we are not telling the story when we quote Navalny we are letting the Russians themselves speak... we just wont mention we pay him and this is how he makes a living... selling out his own country...

    It has all the benefits of a western think tank, but extends that even further by having someone with a Russian accent and Russian name to report it, so it sounds like the opposition to Putin speaking even though the real Russian opposition hate these traitors too.

    Putin supporters should love Navalny... the guy is incompetent... he couldn't organise an orgy in a whore house... but he is in good company... the people effectively running him as an asset are the same idiots trying to send some mercs to Venezuela to kidnap Maduro so he can be brought to the west to face trial for his crimes and also so they can pocket that 14 million dollar reward for him... That operation started going south when they named the main traitor that was helping them as one of their targets for the rewards and he had to flee the country because his own people shopped him for the money...

    Poland, Russia to cut decades-old gas transit ties



    MOSCOW/WARSAW, May 15 (Reuters) - A gas transit deal between Russia and Poland that expires later this month will not be renewed, Russia’s Gazprom said, as Warsaw aligns its energy regulations with European Union rules and curbs its decades-old dependence on Russian fuel.

    Tensions between Moscow and Warsaw over gas imports are part of wider political strain between Russia and the West, since Moscow’s annexation of Crimea from gas-producing Ukraine in 2014.

    Warsaw has repeatedly said it will not buy any Russian gas after 2022, when another long-term supply deal will end. Instead, it will take pipeline deliveries from Norway and buy sea-borne cargoes of liquefied natural gas, including from the United States.

    “Effectively, the current gas deal is over,” Gazprom’s spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told Reuters. He said gas would still transit through Poland, but did not go into detail about whether transit fees might rise. Poland has long complained the fees are too low.

    Poland’s transit deal, which dates back to the 1990s, is tied to the Yamal pipeline that carries Russian gas from the northern Yamal peninsula to Poland and on to Germany. It has annual capacity of 33 billion cubic metres (bcm).

    After the deal expires, Gazprom can book short-term transit capacity with Gaz-System, the operator of Polish pipeline system.

    Gaz-System told Reuters the capacity for May 17-18 will be available through an auction on May 17.

    The auction for quarterly capacity for the period July 1 – Sept 30 was held on May 4.

    “The system users booked a significant (around 80%) capacity at the Yamal pipeline for the quarter starting on July 1,” Gaz-System said without revealing the users.

    Gazprom declined to comment on the auctions.

    TRANSIT CAPACITY SURPLUS
    In theory, Russia will have access to surplus transit capacity following the completion of the Nord Stream-2 undersea pipeline expected early next year, although construction is suspended for now because of U.S. sanctions.

    The Nord Stream-2 pipeline has for years divided opinion in the European Union, as Germany argued there was a strong business case, while other nations said it was political and breached EU rules on pipeline access.

    On Friday, Germany’s energy regulator declined to grant a waiver of European Union gas directives to the operators of the pipeline.

    Nord Stream-2 also faces the problem of a collapse in energy demand because of the impact of the novel coronavirus.

    Hilarious. Ted Cruz says that the December 2019 sanctions against Nord Stream II will proceed if the pipeline work continues.

    Russia is quaking in its booties fucktard. Clearly Germany is doing zero to stop construction. And Gazprom could give a
    flying fuck about the USA and its master of the universe wannabe sanctions. So what you gonna do yanquis? Trash talk
    with your asses?

    Stupid Germans think that Russia can be blackmailed with BS EU legal theatrics.   No EU law can apply to NS II since it is not
    an entity that exists on EU territory.   It is an international waters link between Russia and Germany.   The EU has zero rights
    to regulate anything in international waters.   The attempt to regulate the whole pipeline based on its connection to Germany
    is BS.   If I put my finger on your car, it does not mean that I own it.

    Anyway, the pipelines to the east are opening up transit volumes that make NS II irrelevant.   Stupid Germans need to wake up'
    and smell the coffee instead of yanqui anus.


    If Germany wants to only buy half the maximum output of Nord Stream II and refuse to buy the other half; then that's within their rights as a customer. It's not about whether EU directives apply or not at the heart of it. The pipe connects only to Germany. And even without the directives, if Germany doesn't want to buy Russian gas or only wants to buy a certain amount, then you can't force them to do otherwise.

    Of course the issue is that they're reneging on the deal. They said they'd be willing to purchase the whole capacity, and are now hiding behind this EU directive crap. Or are they? The German ambassador is still oddly very optimistic about Nord Stream II, as if nothing has changed. So maybe some trickery is on the books, Germany would be willing to buy the whole capacity of the pipe after the transit deal through Ukraine finishes in 2024. Russia itself has been pretty quiet about the latest news, acting as if nothing has happened. So maybe that's what's on the cards.

    If not, then finish the pipe anyway, and use only half the pipe for selling gas; the Germans are evidently not willing to buy more.

    Then Russia can in turn renege on the transit deal with the Ukraine it signed earlier this year, and Putin's commitments to Merkel to continue to use 20-30% of the Ukrainian pipe's capacity for transit to other customers.
    Scrap all that.
    And then the Germans and others can either come to the table again and agree to use the whole capacity of Nord Stream II. Or they can just buy gas from wherever they wish - US LNG, Russian LNG even, whatever.
    But one way or the other the Ukrainian pipes won't be used to provide gas to Europe and subsidize Banderastan to the tune of $3 billion a year - which is really what this is all about.

    Well that is a great point, they can tie this thing in ropes all they want but in 5 years time when the Ukrainians are being dicks because they think they have the Russians over a barrel and the Russians say stick it where the sun don't shine and seal off the pipes through the Ukraine then Germany will either use more of the capacity of the pipes or simply have to make up the difference in LNG and the Russians sell that too... and in capacities that actually make them a solution rather than a half arsed band aid solution like the US boosting production when they can't even meet their own needs now.

    Poland piping gas from Norway is brilliant... Norway does not have infinite supplies so Poland buying from them will help deplete its gas reserves faster... what happens then?

    Most of the rest of Europe can just buy from Russia but what is Poland going to do?

    For Russia this is just amusement... they will be selling gas via pipe and as LNG... if the US succeeds then Europe will just be spending a lot more money on Russian LNG instead of directly piped gas... Russia is not going to lose in this...

    Eventually the Europeans might work out they are getting played, but whether they do or do not doesn't matter really.

    This situation has already arisen on one of the Nordstream 1 pipes and when push came to shove the 100% capacity was allowed. So its a bit of a red herring, if the Germans or others need it they get it.

    Norway does have limited gas but a potentially bigger problem is that the Poles are only getting a pipeline to Denmark. The existing pipeline from Norway to Denmark will then have to be shared. No doubt the reason that Poland is upping its LPG handling capacity. LPG might me cheap for now but it will always cost more than piped gas.

    As US shale disappears in a debt storm so to will the US's ability to export gas in volume.

    Most European customers of Gazprom are not countries they are companies desperate for profits. I doubt they are being played, they, like the Russians, are probably looking on with a wry smile at the stupid fools they have to deal with.

    The US is importing over 75 billion cubic meters per year of natural gas from Canada.  In 2017 it was 85 bcm and dropped the 76 bcm in 2019.
    Given the current crisis in non-conventional production in the USA (tight oil and tight gas) the US will not be "hitting zero" imports from Canada
    any time soon and given the data from the US tight gas production, imports from Canada will never disappear.    

    The only LNG that the USA has for export is from Qatar and other 3rd parties.

    And this here is what it all boils down to

    Germans have the pipe and when they want 100% capacity they get 100% capacity

    Manufacture heavy economy like theirs will either have the required energy or they will be left in the dust by competition (China) and they are not idiots to allow something like that

    Everything else (especially this EU regulations shtick) is just a dog and pony show for assorted East European povs

    Germany needs Russian gas. Russia can live without German money. The only reason why they've compromised at all was due to the fact they still want to cooperate with the Europeans... though nerves only last so long. The EU dicking about doesn't go unnoticed.

    Would honestly be really funny if the west gets their wish and Putin is democratically thrown from power in Russia and his replacement is far more like the west... ie aggressive and happy to use things as weapons against rivals... ie titanium production and gas exports.... hahahaha... they would look back to these times with nostalgia.

    The fundamental problem is that the west doesn't understand that Russia has interests too.

    Russia is not in Syria to block the US, Russia is not blocking international action against Iran to hurt the US or the west.

    Russia has interests in Syria and more fundamentally they know the damage war can do to a country and unlike the west don't want to put a whole country through that just to get cheaper oil. They also don't want Islamic nutters from Russia learning to fight in Syria and then bringing that shit back to Russia when they are done in Syria... ironically a problem for the west they didn't see coming that they now have to deal with.


    The irony is that Putin was always ready to cooperate with the west and be a partner, but they were never interested in a real partnership... cooperation on their terms when it suited them and when it didn't all agreements were torn up... INF treaty, ABM treaty, CFE treaty, etc etc etc

    All the talk about the "show stopper" decision of some tribunal is irrelevant. The EU is demanding that 12 nm of the pipe
    going through German territorial waters be subjected to EU regulations. Which requires others 50% access. This is obvious
    nonsense since there are no other sources (attached pipes) of supply. They are treating the NS II pipe like an existing
    interconnected network where other suppliers can use the capacity. This model has no similarity to a single source
    pipe. Anyway, Russia can wash its hands of any entanglement by giving ownership of the 12 nm territorial section
    to Germany and let Germany deal with its own shit. Even if Gazprom owned the pipe all the way to the on-shore pumping
    station, it would still have no ability push through 100% of the NS II capacity without Germany enabling this.

    As the energy supply situation degrades over the coming years, the EU will be crawling on its knees to beg Gazprom for
    gas. All of the current posturing is moronic nonsense that is predicated on delusions of infinite and cheap energy supply.
    As has already been pointed out by different people, Russia has replaced Banderastani transit even if 50% of NS II is
    "allowed". Turk Stream is there too and combined they are more than the transit through Banderastan:

    31.5 + 27.5 = 59 bcm per year.

    Gazprom announced the beginning of work on the project Power of Siberia-2



    MOSCOW, may 18 (Reuters) – Gazprom (MCX:GAZP) is planning a new large-scale construction of its gas export infrastructure of the gas pipeline Power of Siberia-2 through Mongolia to China, with a capacity of up to 50 billion cubic meters per year.

    On the beginning design-prospecting works on Power of Siberia-2 “on behalf of the President of Russia” announced Monday the head of Russian gas holding Alexei Miller.

    “The aim of the project is the connection of the transmission infrastructure of the West and East of Russia, gasification of Eastern Siberia”, – said Miller.

    Gazprom Neft has started developing the largest gas condensate fields in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous district

    "Gazpromneft-the Arctic" (subsidiary of "Gazprom oil") has started the development of the Neocom-Jurassic deposits of the Bovanenkovskoye oil and gas condensate field and kharasaveyskoe gas condensate field on the Yamal Peninsula, and the Achimov deposits* oil rims of the Urengoy oil and gas condensate field in Nadym-PUR-Tazovskiy district YANAO.

    The projects are implemented on the basis of long-term risk operator agreements** with the license holders, Gazprom dobycha Nadym LLC* * * and Gazprom dobycha Urengoy LLC****, which develop overlying layers of deposits. When developing new assets, Gazprom Neft uses its experience and expertise in developing the Achimov formation and oil fringes. Project implementation is carried out in cooperation with PJSC Gazprom on the main stages in order to unconditionally achieve the established key performance indicators.

    In 2020, Gazpromneft-Zapolyarye will set up one Bush site and drill two wells at each of the Bovanenkovskoye and Kharasaveyskoye fields to remove geological uncertainties. In total, the company will build more than 250 high-tech wells under the project. The start of industrial development of the neocomurian deposits of the Bovanenkovskoye and Kharasaveyskoye fields is planned for 2025 and 2026. The maximum annual production level at the assets will be reached by 2031 and will amount to more than 38 billion cubic meters of gas and up to 4.1 million tons of condensate. Currently, the fields are being prepared and equipped with Bush sites.

    RUSSIA EYES PETCHEMS BOOST


    Russia wants to exploit its abundant oil and gas to build up its petrochemicals industry, but market conditions were far from ideal even before the Covid-19 crisis.

    Russia’s largest oil and gas producers are moving into petrochemicals, adding value to exports and establishing a greater downstream hedge against volatile oil and gas prices.

    Considering its vast hydrocarbon reserves, Russia’s petrochemicals footprint is minuscule, accounting for less than 2% of global supply capacity. This is set to change, with a raft of new projects due to come on stream over the coming years. These projects will mainly rely on ethane as feedstock, produced as a by-product of gas processing. Oil-derived naphtha, on the other hand, is proving far less popular.

    Russia's Lavrov Says Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Project Will Not Damage Relations With Denmark


    "[This] does not affect relations between Russia and Denmark. These relations have long been in the state they are in today. I do not see any change in our approach to the relationship with Copenhagen in light of the situation around Nord Stream 2," Lavrov said at a press conference after an online meeting of foreign ministers of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS).

    "Out relations are not brilliant, I will say honestly and frankly, we see that Denmark takes a less constructive position on a number of issues related to Russia within the framework of the European Union and NATO than a number of other members of these organizations. We do not dramatize this, we are ready to talk to everyone, including our Danish colleagues," Lavrov noted.
