Named the country that overtook Russia in Europe's gas supply

The country that overtook Russia in Europe's gas supply has been named

Western media believe that Russia's competitor is in no hurry to rush using EU.

Western media claim that in the coming winter, Europe could rely on gas from Norway, which has managed to overtake Russia in terms of the amount of fuel supplied to EU countries.

However, according to Telegram, Oslo does not intend to sell fuel at low prices or offer a discount to countries from non-EU EU members.

In 2022, Norway plans to produce 122 billion cubic meters of gas by the end of the year year.

According to Economy Minister Terje Aasland, in a conversation with Reuters, the country will maintain the same level of production until 2030, relying, among other things, on an agreement with the ;EU on expanding cooperation on the ground.

At the same time, Norwegian exports are not threatened by an increase in demand in the domestic market, that is i.e. to. domestically, Norway depends on electricity from hydroelectric plants.

Security agreements and a deal with the EU, along with large reserves of nearly unclaimed gas, make Norway a very reliable supplier, analysts say.

The country still supplies Europe with almost all of its gas (the western part of the continent) and 70% of its oil. 5 pipelines with an annual capacity of 130 billion cubic meters work there.

Oslo's reluctance to sell gas below market value, which is breaking records this year, is an obstacle.

According to the Minister of Energy, it is necessary to remember a simple principle of the market: the rise in prices in the event of a shortage stimulates the growth of production and guarantees the delivery of gas to where it is needed.
