    Part of the reason for the slow pace is that the seas are more rough in winter. Yes, that is a real thing. The zonal wind speed
    increases during winter in the corresponding hemisphere in the troposphere. This is due to the change in the pole-equator temperature
    gradient. There is no pipe laying on storm days.

    A storm in the southern part of the Baltic Sea again halted the completion of Nord Stream 2. In contrast, however, from February, unstable weather is expected in the area of ​​the gas pipeline laying for only a few days.

    Looks like the yanquis are giving up on their "legal" sabotage attempts of NS 2.   It remains to be seen if they don't try to attach bombs
    to it in the future.

    Mercouris has seen information that NS 2 is 98% done.   That sounds about right.

    He also quotes some US politician yammering about how stopping NS 2 would deprive Putin of vital foreign currency. These US politicians
    are trapped in a 1980s timewarp. They are fucking retards. It's their job to get informed on such details, but they clearly could care
    less about reality and just wallow in their provincial ignorance.

    Russia is actively building value-added production from oil and gas. This involves various polymers such as polyethylene. Petroleum
    gas was previously wasted by being burned off at the well head. Now it is harvested in increasing amounts. Russia has already
    replaced imports of various plastics precursors but it aims to fully replace imports and join the top four exporters of gas and oil
    derived value added products.

    The demand for value added products is growing faster than oil and gas demand. The price per energy unit equivalent of value
    added products is several times greater than their raw inputs. As with forestry, Russia is transitioning away from raw resource
    exports.

    That is what happens when a team of professional and pragmatic statesmen committed to their duty govern the country. Some morons miss the good old days of ideological preaching, but ideology is just the cover for the unprofessional, the unrealistic and the ignorant. Never again needs Russia (nor any other country for that matter) to be governed by people that hide behind ideology instead of capacity and hard work.

    Angela Merkel’s party takes a hammering in German state elections – exit polls

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party has suffered heavy losses in two state elections, as the long-ruling leader fights corruption scandals and looks to choose a successor for this year’s elections.
    Voters in the states of Baden-Wuerttemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate went to the polls on Sunday, and by the time exit polls were published that evening, it was clear that they had given Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) a drubbing.

    The CDU could once count on support from Baden-Wuerttemberg, an industrial state which is home to auto manufacturers Porsche, Daimler, and Mercedes-Benz. However, the Green Party was projected by TV network ZDF to take home 31.5% of the vote, leaving the CDU in second place with 23%, down 4% from 2016. In Baden-Wuerttemberg, the CDU is, and looks set to remain, the junior partner in a coalition with the Greens.

    Neighboring Rhineland-Palatinate is also ruled by a coalition, with the CDU playing second fiddle to the center-left Social Democrats (SDP). By Sunday evening, ZDF predicted that the SDP would lose 2.7%, hanging on to first place with 33.5% of the vote. The CDU is predicted to come in second with 25.5%, down 6.3% since 2016. The Greens are predicted to pick up more than 4%, with a smattering of smaller parties taking minor gains and losses.

    Right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), which more than doubled its share of the vote in two state elections in 2019, had a relatively disappointing outing on Sunday. The party was predicted to come in third place in both Baden-Wuerttemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate, scoring 12.5% and 10.5% respectively. Both figures are around two percent lower than 2016’s results.

    Looks to me like Gazprom will be able to wash its hands of NS2 legally when it is finished. So if new yanqui bootlick parties fraud their
    way into power in Germany (that is what is actually happening) they will just get a big fat zero from any attempt to coerce Russia.
    The new set of Washington appointed deciders will have a hard time justify why the gas should flow through Banderastan. Sabotage
    of NS2 is all about propping up the Khuyiv regime.

    Hilarious! The Lithuanian LNG terminal that was touted as the "removal of the Russian gas yoke" with "freedom gas from America"
    is now exclusively serviced by Russian LNG tankers because the resellers find it cheaper to source gas from 3rd parties.

    As I have posted numerous times, the so-called US LNG is actually Qatari LNG, and increasingly Russian LNG.

    Germany is betting the U.S. administration will take a pragmatic approach to the Nord Stream 2 project to ship Russian gas to Europe and is pushing for the pipeline’s completion in defiance of U.S. opposition, officials and diplomats said.

    The 'pragmatic' approach Uncle Sham will take is using the current Ukraine escalation to justify stopping NS2 and Sputnik V. Navalny isn't good enough anymore, the only people who think NS2 should be stopped because of Navalny are children suffering from Downs Syndrome such as Greta ThunAssBerger.

    It really is very funny how so-called independent countries in Europe have to bend over for the capricious policies of the USA.
    Since when did Germany ever require US input on NS2?

    Shows you how distorted is the public perception space that such bending of the knee to colonial control is considered normal.

    I think it had something to do with Volkswagen's emission scandal, which was the first warning shot against NS2 by Uncle Sham.

    The hilarious thing is that even if the US succeed then they still lose because stopping the pipeline and building LNG terminals in Germany just means Russia shipping LNG instead of piping gas... the US end game seems to be more about making Germany pay more for energy than anything else...

    Denmark called the timing of the resumption of the laying of the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

    Laying of the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark will begin at the end of March and will last until the end of the third quarter of 2021. This is reported by the Danish Energy Agency (DEA).

    According to the DEA, according to data from the Nord Stream 2AG gas pipeline operator, at the end of March, the Akademik Chersky pipe-laying vessel will join the construction of the gas pipeline, which will begin laying the first string (Line A) of Nord Stream 2, while Fortuna will continue construction of the second line (Line B).

    It is planned that pipe-laying (first line - approx.) Will resume at the end of March and will last until the end of the third quarter of 2020. - says the DEA.

    Earlier, the DEA said that the operating company must provide an adjusted schedule of work on the gas pipeline, but there is no need to approve it in a new way.

    On the eve of the Western media reported that Germany is counting on the completion of the gas pipeline, and with respect to the United States will choose a strategy of waiting in order to provide Washington with a ready-made draft of the deal after the construction is completed.

    Berlin is trying to buy time and make sure construction is completed because it believes that once the pipeline is up and running, things will look different. - said a high-ranking EU politician.

    In turn, the United States, although it threatens to introduce new sanctions against the gas pipeline by May of this year, does not want to completely spoil relations with Germany, which reached a negative mark under Trump.

    NOVATEK may change the format of its third gas liquefaction project, Obskoye LNG. According to Kommersant's information, the company is in the process of terminating a contract for about € 130 million with the compressor equipment supplier Kazankompressormash. The point is that NOVATEK may abandon the development of its own liquefaction technology Arctic Cascade at Obskoye LNG, replacing it with the German Linde technology. The second option provides for the conversion of the project for the production of ammonia.

    Good luck, Uncle Swine-shit. Russia will complete this pipeline all by itself and rather soon. You are going to have to send your navy to
    engage in an act of war to stop the construction. But Russia can sink your navy, so you may want to hold off on unsheathing your
    smelly dick where it can be lopped off.

    Didn´t know that the pipeline is running trough american waters.

    Just for fun, Russia should sanction all companies that are working on the Dakota pipeline. And the oil sands in Canada. You know: Global warming! Pollution of land, water and air! Native people! Human rights! Twisted Evil

    And what if an entity involved in NS2 is already sanctioned, but still remains involved. What are they going to do then?

    What if an entity involved in NS2 has absolutely no assets in USA and neither plan to do any business dealings with any US company in future, what are they going to do then?

    Last thing they are left with is to sanction any factory in Germany and EU which uses NS2 gas in its manufacturing process and any house hold which uses NS2 gas to cook its food.
