Analysts believe the reason was the $ 3 billion lawsuit won against Gazprom's dollars.
Experts believe that the Warsaw policy on legal claims against & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; leads to an increase in fuel prices for Europeans.
According to energy expert Boris Martsinkevich, as quoted by YouTube channel & # 8220; Baltnews', prices in long-term contracts can no longer protect Europeans from the growing cost of blue fuel in the spot markets. A & # 8220; thank you & # 8221; Poland should be warned about this.
Polish company PGNiG won the Stockholm court last year with & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221 ;, forcing to take into account market conditions when concluding contracts.
As a result, the Russian monopoly was forced to pay $ 3 billion, and this year the price of Russian gas has increased over the year, only a few months late. And the price increase comes precisely from “long” contracts.
Thus, the company & # 8220; carefully collects all money spent on the trial & # 8221; Europe.
“Will collect for the second and third time”, & # 8211; Martsinkevich believes.
He added that, for example, for Bulgaria, $ 230 per 1,000 cubic meters at the start of the year turned out to be $ 570 in September. And that's just & # 8220; repeat & # 8221; what the future of gas awaits all EU countries.
According to Gazprom Export, spot fuel prices affect it by 83%.
According to Martsinkevich, now & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; expects $ 269.6 for 1,000 cubic meters, at the start of the year the price was $ 170.
In October, the adjustment can exceed $ 300, or even $ 400, the analyst predicts.
As Topnews wrote, Poland is among the opponents of the Russian-German gas project.
Contract & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; with it will expire in the year next, but Warsaw does not rule out that supplies will continue.
