Георги Кадиев: Надявам се да имаме опция да откажем 20-те танкера, че ще ни излязат солено!
Прилагам статия на Блумбърг, тъй като достъпът е платен. Според нея, ЕК е изготвила и изпратила на правителствата нови насоки, според които в крайна сметка се съгласяваме да платим по начина, по който Путин иска.
Цената на газа на холандската борса падна с около 4.2% тази сутрин.
Надявам се ЕК да публикува бързо насоките.
И се надявам да имаме опция да откажем 20-е танкера, защото ще ни излязат солено.
European Gas Falls After EU’s Green Light on Russia Payments

(Bloomberg) – The European Union’s green light to energy companies on payments to Russia helped send benchmark natural gas prices lower for a second day as invoice deadlines loom.
The European Commission sent its revised guidelines to member states, signaling that sanctions against Moscow do not prevent gas importers from opening new bank accounts. That means payments, satisfying President Vladimir Putin’s demands, could be made. Dutch front-month gas, the European benchmark, closed 4.2% lower.
Traders have been eagerly awaiting updated guidance, with most payment deadlines due by the end of the month. Russia had asked companies to accept a new transaction method that would involve opening two accounts at Gazprombank, one in euros or
dollars and another one in rubles.
Italy’s Eni SpA will move to open accounts in rubles and euros with the Russian bank by Wednesday so that it can make payments on time this month and avoid any risks to gas supplies, according to people familiar with the situation. In its updated recommendations, the European Commission also said that companies should make a clear statement that they consider their obligations fulfilled once they pay in euros or dollars. The bloc could also cap gas prices if Russia cuts or
significantly limits shipments, according to a draft of energy-market intervention measures seen by Bloomberg News.
Warmer-than-normal weather is adding to the downtrend in prices, while stronger wind power production expected in Germany
next week is reducing the need for gas to generate electricity. In addition, vessels carrying liquefied natural gas continue to
arrive, providing the continent with alternatives to supplies from Russia, while storage levels are improving.
