Re: Nordstream 2

Gas prices at highs. Gazprom not sending more via Ukraine - happy to supply vis NS2 once it is complete...

Re: Nordstream 2

If Western Europe approves NS2, which has to receive final technical and regulatory approval even after completion, then Western Europe will receive more, cheaper gas.
The current shortage is only partly due to Russia, which is getting plenty of competing orders from Asia. It is more due to LNG shipping capacity issues, which are engineered in London and other financial and shipping capitals. https://www.ft.com/content/24bd5ec0-...d-c2e1118b7f8e
Long term, prices will have to go up if Asia (and parts of Europe such as Poland) are to wean themselves from coal. https://www.mckinsey.com/industries/...ies-for-growth


Again: NS2 means more, cheaper gas for Europe. At this point, what stands in the way is entirely politics.
