Russia, Austria to Expand Gas Cooperation

Despite the European Commission’s stern warnings, Russia’s share of European energy market will grow in the coming years. According to Bloomberg’s experts, gas exports to Turkey and the EU have reached 162.6 billion cubic meters (5.7 trillion cubic feet) this year, up from about 159 billion in 2015 and 161.5 billion (then record high) in 2013...

Europe: Energy Security and Grudges

In many respects 2015 has gone down in history as a watershed year. The domination of the United States and its allies in world affairs was ceding place to the new system of multipolar world with Russia being an independent center of power. Russian Federation has re-established its presence in the strategically important areas and turned into a pole of attraction for other countries opposing West’s hegemony...

Qatar Will Not Help Europe

Yet another scheme with dubious prospects is taking place in Europe’s energy market. On 11 December, a tanker carrying liquefied natural gas will arrive at the Polish port of Swinoujscie from Qatar. As a result, the Polish LNG terminal at Swinoujscie will receive its first 200,000 cubic metres of liquefied fuel, which corresponds to approximately 120 million cubic metres of natural gas...

EU Chasing Anti-Russian Ghosts (II)

Russia’s plans to expand its gas supplies to Germany run counter to the interests of the European Union and could lead to the further destabilisation of Ukraine. This was the strange conclusion of a letter written to the European Commission by ten countries in Central and Eastern Europe: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia...

Who Is Betraying Eastern Europe?

The recent agreement between Russia and the European Union over the terms of the «winter package» of gas shipments to Ukraine provides a certain window of opportunity to the countries of Central and Southeastern Europe. In this new environment they will be able to draft a wider range of projects for transporting Russian gas, to serve both their own needs as well as for further transit into the EU, and also coordinate those projects with each other, as well as with Moscow and Brussels...

Hand of Moscow and West’s Balkan Policy

Russia’s international clout is growing. The country is adamant in its desire to counter the attempts of the United States and the European Union to impose on other nations political, ideological and cultural models that are detrimental to their national interests. It raises concern among Western politicians and media...

Russia has enough gas for everyone

The June 26 speech by Alexey Miller, the chairman of the board of Gazprom, at the annual general meeting of shareholders proved to be a cold shower for all those who hoped that Russia would pull out of Europe’s gas markets. Despite the fact that much of his report was devoted to Gazprom’s operations in the Russian Far East, the data Miller provided confirmed that Russian gas will not be squeezed out of Europe’s energy balance. Moreover, in the coming years Russian gas supplies will continue to play a steadily larger role in ensuring European energy security...

Do you have a plan, Mr. Vučić?

«Do I have a plan? I have three whole plans!» once declared the hero of a popular animated series based on a work by Jules Verne. And it would be worth asking the same question to all those involved in the global energy games. Russia and Turkey definitely have more than one plan regarding the transportation of energy resources. Their plans are being developed increasingly actively and are being pushed forward by Central European countries headed by Slovakia. And what about Serbia? Does Aleksandar Vučić’s government (which bought 1.5 billion cubic metres of gas from Gazprom in 2014, more than any other former Yugoslav republic put together) have any kind of independent and thought-out plan besides the appeals ringing out, with or without reason, to its «American friends»? Or are the Serbian authorities actually preparing a secret channel for tankers with liquefied natural gas to get to Belgrade?..

Gasprom Can Put the Relations with Europe on Hold

The dialogue on gas issues between Russia and Europe is in deadlock... At the present moment, everything depends on Europe... The South Stream experience should teach Europeans a lesson. Gasprom inserted changes into its policy. The following comments regarding the move in December 2014 by Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller clearly showed this shift: «The principle of our strategy in relation to the European market is changing... If the buyer doesn’t want the purchase to be delivered home, perhaps he needs to get dressed and go to the store; if it happens in winter, perhaps he needs to get dressed more warmly»...

Russian Gas and European Interests

Europe is running low on time. It has yet to create the infrastructure for transit of Russian gas from Turkey. Speaking at the Valdai Club conference on European energy security in Berlin on April 13, Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller said the European infrastructure for accepting deliveries of Russian gas through Turkish Stream should be in place by 2019. Joining Miller, Russian Economy Minister Alexander Novak added that «the [transit] contract [with Ukraine] is in force until the end of 2019»... He also said that Gazprom has no need to discuss Turkish Stream’s leg under the Black Sea with its European partners. Europe has to define its priorities in energy and it has a limited choice...

US Targets Russia and China with North Korea Pretext

The North Korean state is routinely mocked in the West for engaging in hyperbole and bombast. Ironically, the Western reaction to its latest satellite launch is a carnival of knee-jerk hysteria and hyperbole. But all the bluster has conveniently given Washington an opportunity to proceed with its global missile shield plans. That is far more destabilizing to international security than any alleged North Korean violation...
