Media learned about unexpected consequences of US LNG tanker turnover from Asia to Europe

The current situation with the tankers was ridiculed by the host of Channel One, Artem Sheinin.

Recently, the Western press began to actively write that the United States will save Europe from the gas crisis.

The reason for such joy was the turn of American LNG tankers from Asia to Europe, to which the market immediately responded by falling prices for gas. However, after a few hours, prices went up again.

According to media reports, the EU met the news about the turnover of tankers, and the press fell on & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; with accusations of another round of price increases amid the termination of supplies through the Polish pipe.

However, then it became clear that the morning drop in gas prices on the market was due precisely to the reaction of investors to the reversal of American tankers.

Initially, this was seen as a new trent in deliveries, but in reality it is not.

As stated by the deputy director of the Institute of National Energy Alexander Frolov, & # 8220; mass reversal & # 8221; tankers actually happened at only two vessels.

In addition, he stressed that even with astronomical gas prices in Europe, American LNG will not be able to provide Europe in full.

Asian consumers, in turn, reinsured themselves by entering into long-term contracts so that what is now observed 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 turn of tankers and the reaction to this in Europe has caused ridicule of the host of & # 8220; Channel One & # 8221; Artem Sheinin.

He considered the situation absurd and said that the Europeans provoked their own fuel crisis by not wanting to sign long-term contracts with & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221 ;. Now, according to the TV presenter, he noted the absurdity of the situation.

& # 8220; Well, they bred Indians into beads. Why do they breed you as Indians? & # 8221; & # 8211; gave Chenini a historical example in the studio of the show & # 8220; Time will tell & # 8221 ;.

To this, the Czech expert Jiri Yust accused Moscow of gas supply violations and said that the US was allegedly trying to level the gas shortage in Europe.

However, Shenin recalled how Putin called on Europe to sign long-term contracts, but since this did not happen, Europe's gas storages were literally empty.

Previously, TopNews wrote about that & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; suspended the transit of gas to Germany. The temporary interruption of supplies occurred on the gas pipeline & # 8220; Yamal-Europe & # 8221 ;.
