    The pipe layer Fortuna is on the move again, heading north of Kaliningrad and not far off the coast.

    The US not letting up. Now adding TurkStream to the pot.


    Washington, July 16 : US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has threatened companies involved in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany and the TurkStream pipeline project stretching from Russia to Turkey across the Black Sea.

    "Today, the Department of State is updating the public guidance for CAATSA (Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act) authorities to include Nord Stream 2 and the second line of TurkStream 2," Pompeo was quoted by the Xinhua news agency as saying at a press briefing on Wednesday.

    "This action puts investments or other activities that are related to these Russian energy export pipelines at risk of US sanctions," he added.

    Pompeo said that the two projects are not commercial but serve as Moscow's tools to exploit European dependence on Russia's energy supplies that ultimately undermine transatlantic security.

    "Companies aiding and abetting Russia's malign influence projects will not be tolerated," he noted.

    "Get out now or risk the consequences."

    President Donald Trump has long voiced his discontentment about the Nord Stream 2 project, complaining about Germany's large payment to Russia on energy and "delinquency" on military spending.

    The Nord Stream 2, stretching 1,230 km from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea, is scheduled to start operation in the middle of 2020.

    Meanwhile, the TurkStream, which was inaugurated in January, will provide gas to Turkey and the south and southeast Europe in two parallel pipelines, running 930 km through the Black Sea, from the Russian city of Anapa to the northwestern Turkish town of Kiyikoy in the Trace region.

    One pipeline will supply gas to Turkey, and the other will reach the Turkish-European border to carry the gas first to Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary.

    TurkStream will deliver a total of 31.5 billion cubic metres of Russian natural gas each year, with Turkey receiving half of it and Europe, the rest.

    Pompeo can huff and puff but he will not be blowing anything to do with Russian gas exports down. EU-peons have a stark
    choice: freeze in the dark or buy affordable Russian natural gas. The result of yanqui imperial wannabe edicts will be that
    the EU passes laws protecting its companies from US sanctions. Mark my words.

    This will just force people to move away from the US.

    NOVATEK shipped the first LNG shipment to Japan via the Northern Sea Route



    PAO NOVATEK announces the first supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Yamal LNG project to Japan via the eastern route of the Northern Sea Route, which was carried out by a subsidiary of the Company NOVATEK Gas & Power Asia Pte. Ltd.

    The consignment was delivered by the Vladimir Rusanov gas carrier under a spot contract. In full compliance with the schedule, the unloading was carried out at the Ohgishima LNG Terminal in Japan.

    This is the first successful experience of calling and unloading an ice-class LNG carrier Arc 7 in a Japanese port, which will further increase the volume of LNG supplies to this country.

    “We pay great attention to the development of the logistics chain of our LNG projects,” said Lev Feodosiev, First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of PAO NOVATEK. “The planned commissioning of a transshipment terminal in Kamchatka will significantly expand the possibilities for competitive LNG supplies throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”

    Yamal LNG (50.1% - from Novatek, 20% - from French Total and Chinese CNPC, 9.9% - from the Silk Road Fund) is Novatek's first plant to liquefy gas. The project is being implemented on the basis of the South Tambeyskoye field (Yamal Peninsula). The plant has launched three technological lines for the production of LNG with a capacity of about 5.5 million tons per year each; in 2020, the fourth stage of Yamal LNG is expected to be launched.

    A comment from the above link:

    By the way, according to the latest BP statistical yearbook, the actual geography of LNG supplies from Russia in 2019 turned out to be the following (they have quite adequate figures for LNG trade, since they use market sources):

    Europe - 15 million tons

    Latin America - 0.1 million tons

    Middle East - 0.6 million tons

    Asia-Pacific region - 13.2 million tons, including : Japan - 6.4, China - 2.5, Rep. Korea - 2.3, Taiwan - 1.5, India - 0.2, others - 0.3.

    Since Sakhalin ships 10-12 million tons of LNG, supplies to Asia from Yamal were small, although Asia has always been viewed as a more attractive market.

    Russia Reportedly Surpassed US in LNG Exports to China in June



    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia exported 396,000 tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to China in June, while US exports amounted to 340,000 tonnes during the same period, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing data from China’s General Administration of Customs.

    According to the customs data released on Sunday, Russia’s LNG exports to China increased by 20.7 percent compared to May figures, while US exports were 2.4 percent higher than in May.

    In June 2019, Russia exported 67,000 tonnes of LNG to China. The US did not export LNG to China a year ago.

    Overall, China imported 5.79 million tonnes of LNG in June, up by 29 percent when compared to last year.

    Nord Stream 2 AG appeals EU court ruling in Gas Directive action

    This is interesting:
    In May 2020, Germany’s Federal Network Agency exempted the Nord Stream pipeline from those requirements for the period of 20 years, but refused to do the same for Nord Stream 2.
