    Since sanctions are not working, it looks like NATzO is now resorting to open military provocation Rolling Eyes


    Warships & submarines entering zone of Nord Stream 2 pipeline in ‘planned & prepared provocations’ to obstruct work, says operator

    With the controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline nearing completion and US sanctions against contractors failing to stop its construction, its operator has reported an increased “provocative” activity of warships in the area.

    According to Moscow news agency TASS, Nord Stream 2 AG’s branch director, Andrey Minin, claimed that the last three months have seen a growth in military presence in the area.

    “After the resumption of Nord Stream 2 offshore construction in January 2021, there has been an increase in activity of military ships, planes, and helicopters, as well as civilian ships of foreign countries, whose actions are often provocative in nature,” Minin said, noting that the presence of these vessels could damage the pipeline.

    Continue to work on it and if they damage anything, sue them or strip that nations assets in Russia till they pay up.

    Also, send Russian warships to the area as well. Make it clear if they are operating in Ditch waters, that the Dutch are responsible. If it's international waters, move your ship into place.

    It ain't rocket science.

    Danish waters. Problem is Russia can´t just send armed ships there, but they could deploy some "civilan" armed guards on the ships, with a bunch of Kornet missiles just in case Greenpiss comes along. sunny

    I suppose it had to happen. The Danes need to police this Sleep

    Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com,

    A senior official from Nord Stream 2 AG, the project company leading the Nord Stream 2 Russia to Germany natural gas pipeline project, has reported an uptick in "provocative" activity from warships and planes in the area where the pipeline is being built.

    "Higher activity of naval vessels, airplanes and helicopters and civilian vessels of foreign states is observed in the work area after restarted construction of the offshore segment of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, whose actions are often clearly provocative," said Nord Stream AG official Andrei Minin, according to the Russian news agency TASS. Minin said a 1.5-mile safety zone is established around the construction area where vessels are not supposed to enter. "Nevertheless, naval vessels of foreign countries are constantly registered near service ships performing work," he said. He added that a Polish antisubmarine warfare airplane is "regularly flying around the work area at a small height and closely to the pipelay vessel."

    Minin said in one provocation, an unidentified submarine was above surface within one mile of the pipeclay vessel Fortuna, a ship that was hit with US sanctions on January 19th. Minin said the activity indicates “obviously planned and prepared provocations.” Besides warships and planes, he said fishing vessels have also come dangerously close to the construction area.

    The Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been in the crosshairs of the US for years, but despite sanctions and threats, Nord Stream AG reported on Thursday that the project is now 95 percent complete. Construction restarted in December 2020 after being suspended due to threats of US sanctions.

    Although it’s not clear if the US is involved in these provocations, it is likely. Washington seems willing to take extreme measures to stop the project and is threatening to sanction its ally Germany. Besides the US, another country keen to stop the project is Ukraine, which stands to lose up to $3 billion a year in gas transportation fees if the pipeline is complete.

    The original Nord Stream consists of two lines that run from Vyborg, Russia, to Lubmin, Germany, near Greifswald. The new project would add two more lines, doubling the amount of natural gas Russia could export to Germany.

    From a ZH poster

    https://www.nord-stream.com/press-info/images/exclusion-zone-around-pipelay-vessel-2665/

    https://ens.dk/sites/ens.dk/files/OlieGas/15_-_nord_stream_2_-_transboundary_impacts_-_environmental_impact_assessment_denmark_north-western_route._august_2018.pdf

    .... Shipping and shipping lanes In Danish waters, the proposed NSP2 route will run inside and along the TSS Bornholmsgat for approximately 42 km close to the Swedish EEZ. The TSS Bornholmsgat carries most of the ship traffic to/from the Baltic Sea and experiences over 50,000 ship passages per year. The proposed NSP2 route additionally crosses the TSS Adlergrund in the Danish and German EEZs, which has approximately 7,000 ship movements per year. Safety exclusion zones will be implemented around slow-moving construction vessels. Only vessels involved in the construction of NSP2 will be allowed inside the safety zone; therefore, all other vessels not involved in construction activities will be requested to plan their journeys around the safety zone. The shipping lanes crossed by the proposed NSP2 route in Danish waters provide sufficient space and water depth for ships to plan their journey and safely navigate around possible temporary obstructions. The impact on ship traffic associated with the imposition of a safety zone is assessed to be minor and associated with local and temporary changes to the traffic scheme. Therefore, it is assessed that there will be no significant transboundary impacts on Baltic Sea ship traffic caused by the NSP2 project in Danish waters.

    so....umm....since the work is being done in danish waters, well, gosh, i would guess the exclusion zones are set up with......wait for it......danish authorities. and the last bits in german waters will require german authorities to set up the exclusion zone.

    Yandexed full article. EUGAL is the key north south pipeline which, in combination with the Turkstream extension north, is the western bypass Ukraine link.

    Germany has completed the EUGAL pipeline, which is supposed to transport gas from the Nord Stream-2 pipeline overland. This is reported by the press service of the German gas transport operator Gascade Gastransport GmbH.

    The capacity of the land branch of the Nord Stream-2 – 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year. For comparison, the annual gas consumption in Germany is 80 billion cubic meters.

    The length of the EUGAL is 480 km, from the Baltic Sea to the German-Czech border. It comes from the city of Lumbin, where the Nord Stream-1 and Nord Stream-2 pipelines are laid.

    The EUGAL consists of two threads and a compressor station. The first line was completed on January 1, 2020, and since then it has been transporting gas from Nord Stream-1. The second line was laid in two and a half years.

    Russia says LNG production capacity could jump THREEFOLD by 2035

    Russia’s government approved on Monday the country’s long-term development program for liquefied natural gas (LNG), expecting production capacity to rise threefold from current levels to 140 million tons per year by 2035.

    “The program is based on a comprehensive approach, aimed at diversification of gas supply sources and first of all at an active use of resources of the Arctic shelf and the Far East,” Russia’s Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said at a meeting with deputy prime ministers on Monday, as carried by news agency TASS.

    Russia is also targeting increased LNG exports, considering the expectations of sustained growth in LNG demand and trade globally, Mishustin said.

    Global LNG demand is set to nearly double from 360 million tons last year to 700 million tons by 2040, thanks to continued solid demand from Asia and a rise in gas use for powering hard-to-electrify sectors, Shell, the biggest LNG trader, said in its annual LNG Outlook 2021 last month.

    1 million tons of LNG is equal to 1.36 billion cubic meters of gas. So 140 million tons of LNG is 190.4 billion cubic meters of gas. That means that
    Russia will have more LNG export capacity than its current exports of pipeline gas to the EU of around 150 bcm.

    It also means that Russia today has 63.4 billion cubic meters of gas export capacity in the form of LNG. This shows that Russia's LNG export capacity
    growth has been spectacular. Washington's attempt to force Russia to ship gas through Banderastan is a total joke.

    Akademik Chersky went along the second string of Nord Stream 2

    On Cosmonautics Day and the 60th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space, the Akademik Chersky pipelayer began moving along the route of the second string of Nord Stream 2. The vessel will lay 85 kilometers in Danish and German waters.

    Today, April 12, the Akademik Chersky pipelayer began moving along the route of line A of Nord Stream 2. According to the navigation portals Marinetraffic and Vesselfinder, the vessel took off near the point indicated by the Danish Maritime Authority as the starting point for construction.

    Judging by the route of the pipelayer and the Murman vessel, which carries out underwater monitoring, the end of the gas pipeline was previously lifted aboard the Akademik Chersky.

    By 10.00 Moscow time, the ship had passed about two hundred meters. Whether it resumed laying, however, or is still preparing to start work is unknown. Nord Stream 2 AG replied that they could not provide detailed information on the construction and would promptly inform about further plans. Earlier, the company clarified that in April in the area of ​​the island of Bornholm, the pipelayer continues to prepare for construction.

    Line A contains the longest unfinished section of Nord Stream 2. In Danish waters "Akademik Chersky" will have to lay 68.5 kilometers, and in German waters - 16.5 kilometers. The operator of the project indicated that it plans to complete the laying of the string in Danish waters by the end of September. Obviously, the timing was taken with a margin.

    In May-September last year, the vessel underwent modernization in the German port of Mukran, which is the logistics center of Nord Stream 2 in Germany. And even earlier, on February 5, Gazprom Flot, which was then the owner of the vessel, completed a tender to equip the vessel. The technical documentation stated that after the work, the productivity of the pipelayer should be at least 120-160 joints (up to 2 km per day). Thus, the ship can lay down by the end of May.

    However, as the experience of the Fortuna barge, which is completing line B, shows, the weather can make adjustments. Thus, the ship resumed the completion of the Danish section with a length of 49 kilometers in early February, but was forced to stand for at least three weeks due to storms and rearrangement of anchors. The speed of laying "Fortuna" on favorable days is more than 1,100 meters per day, but due to stops the average pace of work is kept at the level of 500 meters. By April 12, the barge had laid 32.5 km. The project operator indicated in the updated work schedule for the Danish Energy Office that the average pipe-laying speed would be 400 meters per day. The document said that by the end of May, "Fortuna" will complete work in Danish waters, and by July it will hand over the German section of 13.9 km.

    For the coming week, the Swedish Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology (SMHI) predicts relatively calm weather. On some days, the wind speed can reach 12 meters per second. In addition, the Baltic Sea begins to warm up and fogs promise in the southern region.

    US authorities, meanwhile, continue to threaten the Baltic gas pipeline project from Russia to Germany. The new administration intends to use all available levers to prevent the completion of Nord Stream 2, Joseph Giordano-Scholz, spokesman for the US Embassy in Germany, told Tagesspiegel.

    “We will continue to register any organization involved in any potentially unsanctioned activity, and made it clear that any company risks sanctions if it participates in Nord Stream 2,” the diplomat said. Earlier, a report on the project was submitted to Congress, but only the Fortuna barge and its owner, KBT-Rus, were sanctioned, which were already under American restrictions. The administration will next submit its Nord Stream 2 report to US lawmakers in May.

    Recall that after the introduction of the first sanctions against the project in December 2019, the Swiss Allseas left it. After that, Gazprom uses Russian vessels.

    Here we go, the Germans and French finding their backbones. The US is going to love this.  Laughing


    Due to the enormous pressure of the USA, and with the aim of finding a compromise, the German federal government submitted a proposal to the Trump administration last year to build two LNG terminals in Germany for the import of American liquefied gas, and Berlin has already made such a decision. not built by the German state, but by private companies, Berlin forced domestic energy companies to look at it reluctantly given the expected unprofitability of likely low US gas orders from interested consumers given its price).

    The construction of German LNG terminals for American gas was supposed to “soften” the extremely negative American attitude towards the completion of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. However, neither the Trump administration nor this new one – Biden’s – gave in, moreover, they imposed new sanctions against not only contractors, but also all companies and individuals who in any way participate in the completion of this, for Germany and its energy security key project.

    However, a new major turnaround seems to be taking place, not least in relation to Biden’s latest more conciliatory statements regarding Russia’s controversial energy project (due to the complex global geopolitical situation and the aforementioned wishes of American gas producers alike).

    Namely, the news arrived yesterday that, instead of a terminal for receiving LNG from the United States, the German energy company Uniper (the same one that participates in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project) will build a center for importing raw materials for the production of “green” hydrogen in Wilhelmshaven. along the North Sea coast. The company announced that participants in the gas market did not show interest in importing liquefied gas. It was planned to build an LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven with a capacity of up to 10 billion cubic meters by 2023.

    Uniper is now announcing the Green Wilhelmshaven project. The company said it would create a national hydrogen hub at the site of the planned LNG terminal and conduct appropriate research.
    “A terminal for the import of green ammonia is planned. The plant will be equipped with an “ammonia cracker” to produce “green” hydrogen. The terminal will be connected to the planned pipeline network for hydrogen transport, ”Uniper said in a statement. The company added that the local coal-fired power plant will be closed by the end of the year, and a 410 MW “green” hydrogen production plant is planned to be built in its place.

    ......................

    Recall, last year from France also arrived bad news for American LNG producers. The state-owned energy company Engie (also a participant in the Nord Stream 2 project) said it had postponed signing a long-term deal to buy $ 7 billion worth of US LNG (we wrote about this on this portal). The postponement was insisted on by the French government, which believes that too much methane is emitted in the United States during gas extraction and processing.

    Last summer, Gazprom indicated in its environmental report that gas through Nord Stream 2 is three times more environmentally friendly than US LNG gas.

    Recently, expert conferences were held in Germany on the topic of hydrogen as a substitute energy source for fossil fuels, which were also attended by Russian experts. The two countries, among other things, plan to use the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the future for the flow of hydrogen to the EU, which would be produced in Russia and for which it has great potential.

    Russian Vessel Starts Nord Stream 2 Pipelaying in Danish Waters, by Oleg Burunov for Sputniknews.

    Late last year, the Danish Maritime Authority gave the green light to the pipe-layer Fortuna to begin work for the Nord Stream 2 project in Denmark's exclusive economic zone.

    Russia's Akademik Cherskiy has started laying pipes for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project in Danish waters, where the Fortuna pipe-layer has been working since early February, according to project operator Nord Stream 2 AG.

    "After successfully passing sea trials, the vessel Akademik Cherskiy started pipelaying work today in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark. The Fortuna barge continues to lay pipe", the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

    The statement follows Nord Stream 2 AG's announcement last month that after testing in the Kaliningrad Region, the Akademik Cherskiy would join the laying of Nord Stream 2 pipes in Danish waters.

    The Russian ship Fortuna is already working on the pipelaying as it completes construction of the second branch of the gas pipeline (Line B) in Denmark. The Akademik Cherskiy will deal with the pipelaying of the first branch of Nord Stream 2 (Line A).

    The pipeline aims to carry Russian natural gas to Germany across the Baltic Sea. It consists of two 1,230-kilometre (764-mile) lines with a combined capacity of 55 billion cubic metres of gas a year. The project's operator estimated earlier this year that only 148 kilometres (92 miles) were still to be completed.

    The project is being financed by the Russian energy giant Gazprom, German energy companies Uniper and Wintershall, as well as Austria's OMV, France's Engie, and the Anglo-Dutch oil concern Shell.

    US Drive to Undermine Nord Stream 2

    Washington and some of its European allies have repeatedly tried to torpedo the project, with US lawmakers already slapping two rounds of sanctions on Nord Stream 2, which prompted several European contractors, insurers, and certification firms to drop out.

    Russia pledged to use its own pipelaying resources to wrap up the remaining 5 percent of the pipeline, which is described by Moscow as a purely economic project. The Kremlin views the US sanctions against Nord Stream 2 as an example of unfair competition meant to boost American liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to Europe.

    The standpoint is echoed by German officials who have consistently defended Nord Stream 2 as a completely economic endeavour in spite of US pressure in the form of sanctions.

    Last week, Chancellor Angela Merkel again stepped out in defence of Nord Stream 2 and of Russian gas supplies in general, saying she was perfectly aware that the conflict surrounding the pipeline was part of a broader "political struggle". In 2020, she pledged the project would be completed despite the threat of US sanctions.

    Earlier this year, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder stressed that the US should not be able to "dictate" Germany's energy policy, and suggested that Washington's interest was about selling its own "expensive and poorer quality" LNG.

    Europe should just say to the US to **** off and do normal business with Russia. We need cheap and quality Russia gas and Germany knows this. So the Americans should just mind their own business.

    Whilst it looks like Fortuna is still laying pipe AC is now not and has moved NE of the Danish island. Could be sheltering from a storm.
