“Gazprom” played on the demands of Siemens and signed a “condemnation” to Europe


Analysts point to an unprecedented rise in prices.

The price of gas in Europe has renewed its historic high due to the upcoming shutdown of the Nord Stream.

Russian energy expert Boris Martsinkevich said that Gazprom had played on the requirements that Siemens had presented to it. Namely, the Russian supplier was able to update the historical maximum of fuel prices on the eve of the shutdown of the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

So, according to Martsinkevich, at the end of August, the price for 1,000 cubic meters of fuel exceeded the $3,500 mark. Already on August 29, the price fell to less than 3,000 per thousand cubic meters, but still remains extremely difficult for the modern economy of Europe.

The analyst believes that information about field repairs in Norway influenced prices, as well as information about the immediate discontinuation of “SP-1”.

According to &#8220 ;Gazprom”, the gas pipeline will be suspended on August 31 for at least three days. The reason for this is the repair of the last turbine, which is currently working for fuel supply.

Such a requirement, according to Martsinkevich, was presented by the maintenance equipment company Siemens. According to its terms, the turbine must be serviced after 1,000 hours of uninterrupted operation.

“If the inspection reveals no serious defects, it will continue to operate”, explained the 39;expert.


He believes that the company simply took advantage of the terms of the contract, so there can be no question of any political will from Moscow.< /p>

We now know that “SP-1” operating at 20% capacity and remains the only pipeline delivering directly to Germany. Other channels including GTS (Poland) and Ukraine operate backwards or with restrictions.

Speaking on Radio's YouTube channel Aurora, Martsinkevich joked that Siemens could send “a serious specialist”. 39; #8221; Olaf Scholz. Certainly, in case the German Chancellor is not at that time somewhere in Qatar or Canada.

“Siemens… I was looking for LNG there – there's none in Canada, but Scholz came looking,” the analyst joked.
