Gas Relations Are Not Connected With Sanctions Directly

Recently it was found out that seven EU countries support the elimination of anti-Russian sanctions, including Austria, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, France and the Czech Republic. Japan and Germany stand for softening sanctions and continuation of dialogue with Russia. However, soon the information was leveled down by a message that Barack ...


PUSH and PULL, the double-faced strategy dividing the EU from Russia

... readily available. For instance, in late September sources from inside the European Commission pointed out quite optimistically how Iran could become the substitute supplier of gas16, since the country holds the second largest proven reserves of natural gas after Russia. Independent of the facts that the EU imposed sanctions on Iran, and that the existing infrastructures do not have the necessary capacity to meet an increased demand17, this proposal was not received well by the concerned party. "Now the ...

The EU Badly Needs Gas Talks

... least some of the Ukrainian aggregate debt, and a strict debt servicing schedule with the EU guarantees that Ukraine appropriately will channels European allocation. Notably, the time to reach such an agreement is very short, since nonstop deliveries of Russian gas to Europe in winter will require pre-pumping substantial gas volumes into storage in Ukraine. In practical terms, an agreement must be in place by the middle or, at the latest, by the end of September. Otherwise, Europeans will have to bet on a warm ...


Can Russia–EU–Ukraine Negotiations on Gas Be Saved?

Interview with Yuri Borovsky The trilateral negotiations on supplies of Russian gas to Europe via Ukraine, scheduled for September 6, 2014, have been postponed due to irreconcilable differences between the participants and the political deadlock that has arisen in the process of settling the Ukrainian crisis. As the winter heating ...


European Commission candidates’s foreign policies: Schulz softer, Verhofstadt harder on Ukraine

... and no investments of european companies in Russia. But we should also look for diplomatic solutions which always start with one thing, to look at the shared and common interests” he said. Germany is indeed the world’s first importer of russian gas through the specifically built Nord Stream, a situation of high dependence quite different from that of Belgium, where Verhostadt has long served as Prime Minister. In the current crisis Germany policy towards Putin has followed divergent paths. On ...

Russia’s Energy Pivot to Asia

... impact of the hydraulic fracturing, also known as ‘fracking’, is under intense debate [6] . In that sense Russia’s stake on easier-to-obtain conventional gas seems more promising, as opposed to tough-to-obtain unconventional shale gas. Russia also has opportunities to develop shale gas - the massive western Siberian Bazhenov Shale field, which is probably number one in the world judging by estimated resources but until the technology of shale gas fracking improves, Russia does not rule ...


The Arctic Frontier - Armed with Cooperation

... caveats. Firstly, Russia has not yet surveyed the shelf to find out whether it struck the black gold, or more specifically gas, as this region is mostly a gas sphere. In contrast, the US, Canada and Norway have been doing so for ~20 years with success. Russia has only surveyed the Far East a little and is yet to find the critical gas hydrates. Secondly, as waters warm it may open up some industries like energy and shipping, but affect others like fishing. In warmer waters the fish will swim out more from the shores and out of the 200 nautical miles control. It might be startling ...


Euro League: EU vs Russia

... metaphorically a 'Geopolitical Football Championship'. Though, in all fairness, it is hard to see it as a unified team. As it appears more like a political trophy for two major sides. On one side, the EU aims to win Ukraine to make sure its gas is supposedly more secured and to continue its enlargement policy for both rational and questionable reasons. On the other, Russia aims to make sure it achieves its goal of restoring 80% of the defunct USSR’s market for likewise a myriad of reasons; with Ukraine being the final element in the formation, as Kazakhstan and Belarus are already sitting in the dugout. In ...
