German ex-chancellor sees ‘too much ideology’ around Nord Stream 2
Additional gas delivery route is necessary for Germany due to its plans to phase out nuclear and coal-based power generation, he said

BERLIN, February 5. /TASS/. Gerhard Schroder, who served as the chancellor of Germany in 1998-2005, believes that his country needs the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia, because otherwise it won’t be able to meet its energy demand during the period of transition from traditional energy sources to renewable ones.

"We already have Nord Stream 1, which transports 55 billion cubic meters of gas from Russia to [the northern German state of] Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. And we need the second line," he told the Phoenix TV channel, adding that this additional gas delivery route is necessary for Germany due to its plans to phase out nuclear and coal-based power generation.

"It is clear that we should place our bet on renewable sources. However, there won’t be enough of them in the foreseeable future to provide our economy with energy at an affordable price," he said. "During the period of transition, lasting 10, 20 or 30 years - no one can say for sure - we will be in need of gas, the only reasonable and environmentally pure traditional source of energy."

"And we need to ask ourselves: where are we going to take it?" the ex-chancellor continued.

In his opinion, Russian gas delivered via pipelines is the only reasonable way to get it. According to the former German leader, US gas produced by means of hydraulic fracturing is "more expensive and worse in terms of quality," as well as less environmentally friendly.

"It seems to me, that there is too much ideology here," he said, adding that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project should not be linked to the situation surrounding blogger Alexei Navalny. "Why a connection is drawn between issues that are not related to each other? What can be in common between Nord Stream 2 and the Navalny case?" he asked rhetorically, describing this approach as a mistake.

The Nord Stream 2 project contemplates construction of two gas pipeline strings with the total capacity of 55 bln cubic meters per year from the Russian coast to Germany across the Baltic Sea. The gas pipeline is 94% complete to date. After the incident with Russian blogger Navalny, a number of German politicians demanded to halt implementation of the project.

Cheap-rate power deal in France can be more expensive
Off-peak night-time electricity might not be the 'good buy' it seems, says consumer group 60 Millions de Consommateurs

3 February 2021
EDF and Engie clients need to use at least half of their power on the cheaper night rate for it to cost less than a basic single-rate option

By Connexion journalist

Off-peak night-time electricity might not be the “good buy” it seems – a consumer group found the vast majority of users are losing money with an heures pleines/heures creuses (HP/HC) contract.

EDF and Engie clients need to use at least half of their power on the cheaper night rate for it to cost less than a basic single-rate option.

Increased home-working has highlighted the issue, with more homes heated during the day.


France urges Germany to stop construction of Nord Stream 2 pipeline
Monday, February 1, 2021 12:07:00 PM

Germany should stop construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline amid violent crackdown on protesters in Russia, announced French Minister of State for European Affairs Clément Beaune on the radio station France Inter, Deutsche Welle reports.

"We have always said that we have huge doubts about this project in this context," he said.

When asked if this meant a call for Berlin to abandon the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Beaune said: "This is correct, we have already talked about it."

He also noted that EU leaders are now considering the possibility of imposing new sanctions against Russia amid violent suppression of protests that are taking place in support of the opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

"Sanctions have already been imposed, we can do it (again), but we have to be clear that it will not be enough," Beaune added.

According to him, another option, which is being considered, is Nord Stream-2. At the same time, the minister added that this should be a decision of Germany, as the gas pipeline is laid on its territory.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she had not changed her position on Nord Stream 2 and would speak with the US president's administration.

US President Joe Biden called Nord Stream 2 a "bad deal for Europe."

Engie to install EV charge points at Premier Inn hotels

28/01/2021 in Electric fleet news
electric fleet - charging and infrastructure

Engie has secured a new contract to deliver 1,000 electric vehicle charging points across Premier Inn hotels in the next three years.

It’s the biggest roll-out of high power EV chargers in the UK hospitality sector, according to the charging point provider.

Engie will install GeniePoint charging points at 300 Premier Inn hotels over the next three years. The first installation will be in Enfield, when the roll-out begins in March.

Access to the charging points will be for hotel guests, as well as members of the public using the GeniePoint Network. The company will install 50kW+ chargers that use 100% renewable energy.

Simon Leigh, procurement director at Premier Inn, said: “Electric vehicles are one of the ways in which the UK strives for a greener future and we’re pleased to help drive this goal forward with what we believe is the UK’s biggest roll-out of rapid charging points to date.

“We know that ‘range anxiety’ is a real concern for many of our guests who own electric cars. Knowing that in many locations they will soon be able to arrive and have access to a high-speed charge point to quickly refuel their car while they relax and refuel themselves will be a great source of comfort.”

Sam Hockman, divisional CEO – Futures at Engie UK & Ireland, added: “This important move by Whitbread highlights the key role the hospitality sector can play to support not only the uptake of EVs, but also the UK's wider commitment to become net zero by 2050."

Nord Stream 2 project stoppage may result in legal proceedings - German Minister
According to the Minister of Environment Protection and Nuclear Safety Svenja Schulze, Germany will need natural gas during the transitional period after the abandonment of coal-fired and nuclear power generation

BERLIN, January 24. /TASS/. The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is close to completion and all the permits for its implementation were issued in line with principles of the rule of law, Germany’s Minister of Environment Protection and Nuclear Safety Svenja Schulze says in an interview with the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND).

"The decision on the pipeline construction was made many years ago. It is close to completion and received permits in accordance with principles of the rule of law," the Minister said. "If we stop the project now, we will inflict a great deal of harm, casting a doubt on reliability of decisions made on the basis of principles of the rule of law and would probably face court proceedings," Schulze noted.

Germany will need natural gas during the transitional period after the abandonment of coal-fired and nuclear power generation until it will be fully able to ensure energy supplies on account of renewable sources, the Minister said. "Germany barely has its own natural gas reserves, so we depend on import in this regard," she noted.

The Nord Stream 2 project contemplates the construction of two pipeline strings with a total capacity of 55 bln cubic meters per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to Germany. To date, 94% of Nord Stream 2 has been finished.

The $9.5 billion gas pipeline infrastructure project is on course to being completed later this year, with German and Danish regulators recently giving the go-ahead for more pipelaying works in their waters, and a state in northeastern Germany setting up a special fund meant to help shield companies from extraterritorial sanctions.

Swiss insurance giant Zurich Insurance Group will stop insuring the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project due to the threat of US sanctions, Bloomberg has reported, citing people said to be familiar with the situation.

Engie Romania, the largest natural gas distributor and supplier on the local market, has completed the acquisition of a photovoltaic park consisting of two farms, located in the village of Cristuru Secuiesc in Harghita county, Ziarul Financiar reported.

The project was formerly owned by Ever Solar, a subsidiary of the German group Soventix, and Alpine Solar.

The park has a total installed capacity of 9.3 MW and has been in operation since 2015.

How The Winner Of A Presidential Election Is Really Declared

"This acquisition marks a new stage in achieving the goal of becoming, by 2030, an important investor in the field of renewable energy in Romania and thus contributing to the group's ambition to be the leader of the energy transition. Our goal is to occupy a leading position in the segment of centralized renewable energy - given that wind and solar energy will have an increasing share in the country's future energy mix - and to provide green energy to our customers, natural or legal persons," said Eric Stab, President & CEO of ENGIE Romania.

Total SE and Engie SA are teaming up to set up a renewable hydrogen production site in Chateauneuf-les-Martigues, France.

The French energy companies said Wednesday that they have agreed to start construction of the project--called Masshylia--in 2022, aiming to begin production two years later.

The project will be located at Total's La Mede biorefinery site and produce five metric tons of green hydrogen a day for the biofuel production process.

The companies didn't disclose financial terms of the collaboration.

The World’s Most Controversial Pipeline Project Enters Its Final Phase
By Viktor Katona - Jan 09, 2021, 10:00 AM CST

It took more than a year to break the Nord Stream 2 stalemate and now - amidst the world expecting full-scale coronavirus vaccination, amidst the United States expecting the inauguration of President-elect Biden and Europe preoccupied with the future of the EU-UK cooperation rather than energy issues – Gazprom has restarted pipelaying operations on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The Fortuna pipelaying vessel has finished working on the NS2 section in Germany’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and now it is only the Danish EEZ that remains to be laid. Coincidence or by some unfathomable design, it is exactly now that the next round of US sanctions goes into effect, indicating that the pipeline’s endgame will take place in the upcoming 3-4 months. Gazprom took quite some time to fully prepare itself for the pipelaying, almost a year has passed since Allseas ceased all operations out of concern for potential US retaliation and the Fortuna vessel started pipelaying in Germany’s EEZ. Such a massive timespan has left many analysts wondering how exactly would the Russian side opt to finish the pipeline and most of them, betting on Akademik Cherskiy, had been caught wrong. Fortuna started its operations off the Adlergrund shoal on December 11 and it took the vessel 17 days to complete both parallel strings (the 55 bcm per year throughput capacity is split between two strings the capacity of both which stands at 27.5 cm per year) of the German section, implying that the average pipelaying speed was much lower than the 1-1.5km per day initially assumed by industry watchers.

There have been very few offshore pipeline projects, if any, that had such a plethora of pipelaying vessel and supporting tugs appearing and disappearing, involved directly in pipelaying or acting merely as smoke and mirrors. Ever since Allseas stopped its pipelaying works in December 2019, the Akademik Cherskiy vessel was the prime candidate to carry on where the Swiss company has stalled – for this she circumnavigated half the planet, moving from Nakhodka in Russia’s Far East around the Cape of Good Hope to the Baltic Sea. Akademik Cherskiy, however, was inactive throughout pipelaying operations in Germany’s EEZ. Moreover, Cherskiy sits idle quite a distance from Germany, off Russia’s Kaliningrad region, accompanied by a couple of anchor-handling tugs, Artemis Offshore and Errie.

Confounding the Gazprom-owned pipeline’s opponents even further, the ownership structure of the Fortuna vessel has become even more untraceable as she was sold resold again in mid-December, this time to a completely unknown company called KVT-RUS. Crudely put, all the pertinent vessels that are active in pipelaying operations on Nord Stream-2 or merely have been linked to its construction have been sold away from Gazprom amidst the looming threat of US sanctions. Speaking of supply vessels, there are at least half a dozen others scattered across the Baltic Sea. In and around Kaliningrad at least 3 vessels have been biding their time – the vessels Ostap Sheremeta, Yasniy and Vengeri were all linked to Nord Stream-2 at some point. Another anchor handling tug vessel, Ivan Sidorenko, has been moving somewhere in the Baltic Sea with its transponders switched off in mid-December, only to resurface in Mukran and then in Kaliningrad by the end of the same month.

Russian media reports state that Fortuna would start pipe-laying in Danish territorial waters from January 15, 2021, providing no specific date for the completion of works. There remain some 120km to be laid in Danish territorial waters, however, laying the pipelines in the middle of winter has always been the least preferable scenario for Gazprom given the difficult weather conditions that could slow down Fortuna’s assumed 1.5 km per day nominal speed. Therefore, it would be unreasonable to expect the completion of pipelaying works before April-May 2021. Generally speaking, Gazprom has two years left to conclude the construction of Nord Stream 2 before its transit agreement with Ukraine’s Naftogaz runs out and confronts the two companies (and two nations) once again in another round of a Russo-Ukrainian gas standoff.

An immutable aspect of Nord Stream-2 is the United States’ ever-tightening sanctions regime. Despite President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act of which the Nord Stream-relevant sanctions formed part, the US Congress overrode his decision, thus activating a new round of targeted sanctions from December 29 onwards. From now on, any entity, be it Russian or European, that helps build Nord Stream 2, provides retrofitting and upgrading services to vessels participating in the project, or provides insurance and/or underwriting might be subject to sanctions. Though the new sanctions package provides for a 30-day wind-down period, most European companies providing a technical assessment of Nord Stream-2 will cease any sort of cooperation with the pipe-laying vessels and Gazprom as the coordinator of its construction.

The European Union has so far refrained from robust political steps vis-à-vis the US Administration against what it perceives to be meddling in its internal affairs, however, the cohesion of the European block seems to have solidified over the course of 2020 and will fortify even more with Britain’s departure. Lack of progress on the Ukrainian dossier and Alexei Navalny’s poisoning notwithstanding, virtually the entirety of Germany’s financial leaders continue to support the project, stating that canceling Nord Stream-2 would not only hurt European customers and consumers but would also damage the financial standing of the top oil and gas majors involved in the project. Against such a geopolitical landscape, the US should find an elegant way to avoid acknowledging the failure of its multi-step sanctions-tightening.
