The current situation with the tankers has been ridiculed by the host from Channel One, Artyom Sheinin.
Recently the Western press has started to actively write that the United States will save Europe from the gas crisis.
The reason for this joy was the turn of US LNG carriers from Asia to Europe, to which the market immediately reacted by lowering gas prices. However, after a few hours the prices rose again.
According to the media, the EU was informed about the turnover of the oil tankers and the press came across “Gazprom” ? with accusations of yet another round of price increases amid the end of supplies through the Polish pipe.
However, it then became clear that the morning drop in market gas prices was precisely due to investor reaction to the turnaround in US oil companies.
Initially this was seen as a new trend in deliveries, but in reality it is not.
As the manager stated Deputy of the National Energy Institute Alexander Frolov, & # 8220; mass reversal & # 8221; tankers actually only took place on two ships.
In addition, he pointed out that even with astronomical gas prices in Europe, US LNG will not be able to supply Europe in its entirety.
Asian consumers, in turn, have reinsured themselves by entering into long-term contracts so that what is now seen in Europe does not happen to them.
It is known that three quarters of all LNG is supplied to Asia, and only the rest can end up in the EU, however, does not exert a significant influence on the energy situation there, reports & # 8220; Vzglyad & # 8221 ;.
The situation with the tanker turn and the reaction to it in Europe made the host of & # 8220; Channel One & # 8221; Artem Sheinin.
He found the situation absurd and said that the Europeans had caused their own fuel crisis by not wanting to sign long-term contracts with & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221 ;. Now, according to the TV presenter, he has noted the absurdity of the situation.
& # 8220; Now, they raised Indians out of pearls. Why are they bringing you up as Indians? & # 8221; & # 8211; gave Chenini a historic example in the show's studio & # 8220; Time will tell & # 8221 ;.
To this, Czech expert Jiri Yust accused Moscow of gas supply violations and said the United States was allegedly trying to level the shortage of gas in Europe.
However, Shenin recalled how Putin called on Europe to sign long-term contracts, but as this did not happen, the gas storages of the Europe were literally empty.
Previously, TopNews had written about it & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; suspended gas transit to Germany. The temporary disruption of supplies has occurred on the 'gas pipeline' Yamal-Europe & # 8221;.
