For decades, Russia has been committed to operating the亿电竞 European natural gas market, and has been striving to diversify its gas transmission channels to Europe, and still adheres to such a strategy. On March 5, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, in an interview with the亿电竞 media on the亿电竞 eve of his visit to the亿电竞 Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, said that Russia had not given up the亿电竞 transit transportation of the亿电竞 existing natural gas pipeline while building the亿电竞 "beixi-2" and "Turkish stream".


"Beixi-2" project involves the亿电竞 construction of two natural gas pipelines with a total gas transmission capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year. The亿电竞平台 project is planned to extend from the亿电竞 Russian coast through the亿电竞 Baltic Sea to Germany, which will pass through the亿电竞 territory and exclusive economic zone of Baltic coastal countries including Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany.


Medvedev said that compared with othe亿电竞r pipelines, "beixi-2" gas supply line construction cost is low and gas transmission is stable, and the亿电竞 commercial project has passed the亿电竞 economic feasibility demonstration. Moreover, the亿电竞 pipeline can reduce the亿电竞 transportation risk of supplying gas to Europe.


Medvedev believes that after the亿电竞 "beixi-2" natural gas pipeline is finally completed, it will provide a new gas transmission pipeline to guarantee the亿电竞 natural gas supply of the亿电竞 EU, and will not replace the亿电竞 gas transmission pipeline passing through Ukraine.


Yuri vitellinko, executive manager of Ukrainian State Oil and gas company, recently reiterated that the亿电竞 current gas supply contract signed between Ukrainian company and Gazprom does not meet the亿电竞 legal requirements of Ukraine and the亿电竞 European Union. For this reason, it is not possible to extend the亿电竞 existing gas supply contract.


The亿电竞平台 current gas transmission contract between Russia and Ukraine was signed in 2009 and is valid until January 1, 2020. At present, the亿电竞 state oil and gas company of Ukraine has asked Gazprom to reconsider the亿电竞 transit tariff of natural gas from 2018 to 2019.


Prior to that, Russia, Ukraine and the亿电竞 European Union held tripartite talks in Brussels on the亿电竞 issue of natural gas transit transportation. Russian energy minister Novak, vice president of the亿电竞 European Commission in charge of energy affairs shevchovic, foreign minister of Ukraine krimkin, President of Gazprom Miller, and President of Ukrainian State Oil and gas company kobolev and othe亿电竞r "heavyweights" All attended the亿电竞 meeting.


The亿电竞平台 Ukrainian side proposed in the亿电竞 talks that the亿电竞 contracts signed between Gazprom and Ukraine should be consistent with those signed by Russia and Western European companies in terms of legal provisions and effectiveness, that is, the亿电竞 newly signed transit natural gas contracts should fully comply with European laws. The亿电竞平台 European Union expressed its full support for Ukraine's position and said it intended to sign a 10-year or longer-term gas purchase contract if possible.


Judging from the亿电竞 current situation, it is difficult for Russia, Ukraine and Europe to sign new gas supply contracts immediately. At the亿电竞 end of March, Ukraine will hold a presidential election. Ukraine's internal affairs bureau also contains many unstable factors. The亿电竞平台 signing of a new gas supply contract should at least wait for the亿电竞 election of a new president of Ukraine and the亿电竞 stability of the亿电竞 domestic political situation.
