Back to “Normalcy”

... which intends to sell its own LNG to Europe; thus far, however, the United States is behind Russia in shipment volumes and cannot compete with Russia pricewise. In November 2018, the U.S. Department of State expressed concern over Europe purchasing Russia’s LNG, believing that it increases Europe’s dependence on Russia and in the final analysis allegedly undercuts Europe’s energy security. Solving its own energy problems in the remote regions of the AZRF, Russia intends to site a floating nuclear power ...


South Asian Gas Market: It’s Time to Mount an Offensive

... Gazprom, Rosneft and NOVATEK are actively working to build LNG terminals in the Baltic, the Arctic and the Far East.

... CEER) helps potential and existing shippers find relevant information on services and respective costs what in turn is essential for the overall market development.

Russian Gas Projects in the Context of New Paradigm

... international and 20 domestic projects, Russia’s current position is shaky. Governmental favoritism of Gazprom, who has a privileged position with regards to controlling export routes, striped other companies such as Novatek and Rosneft of support in LNG projects that could take relevant place in South-East Asia in order to help Russia decrease its dependency on European market. Russia’s ‘take-it-all’ position vis-à-vis Europe is being challenged not only by external (availability of US LNG) but internal factors: the rationale of Nord Stream-2 project ...
