GAS und EU Banken Mafia : Bestechungs und Betrug als System

Die Aserbeischanische Mafia, hatte besser die OSCE, EU, EBRD, EIB, IFC Bank geschmiert, was die realen Hintergründe sind für die Finanzierung von Gas Pipeline. Die Katari’s schmieren auch praktisch alle Politiker für ihre Gas Exporte.

Milliarden Euro für Gastransit über Ukraine verschwunden – Wintershall

Milliarden Euro, die europäische Verbraucher in den Gastransit über die Ukraine investiert hatten, sind verschwunden, sagte der Chef des deutschen Öl- und Gasproduzenten Wintershall, Mario Mehren, im Interview mit der russischen Zeitung „Wedomosti“.

Mehren wisse zwar nicht genau, wohin dieses Geld geflossen sei, aber sei überzeugt, dass jenes gewiss nicht in die Modernisierung des Gaspipeline-Systems in der Ukraine gesteckt worden sei. Dabei betonte er, dass die technischen Werte des ukrainischen Gaspipeline-Systems niedrig seien.

Darüber hinaus äußerte Mehren, einige Menschen in der EU würden nicht begreifen, wie sich der Gasmarkt in den vergangenen fünf Jahren verändert habe. Heutzutage könne man nicht sagen, dass irgendein Land von einem Lieferanten abhänge. Dabei müssten, so der Wintershall-Chef ferner, mehr Möglichkeiten für die Gasgewinnung geschaffen werden. Aus diesem Grund sollte man nicht die Abhängigkeit von einer gewissen Gasquelle oder einem Produzenten, sondern die Möglichkeit zur Verbesserung der Infrastruktur erörtern.

Mehren zufolge hat Brüssel mit der Ablehnung des South Stream-Projekts an Sicherheit der Gaslieferungen nach Europa verloren. Länder wie etwa Bulgarien und Rumänien hätten indes ihre Energiesicherheit und Einnahmen durch den Gastransport einbüßen müssen.

Key facts


Costs: estimated at USD 45 billion
Length: 3500 km
Capacity: 16 billion cbm of gas annually

Pipelines

  • South Caucasus Pipeline extension (SCPx): Azerbaijan-Georgia
  • Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP): Turkey
  • Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP): Greece-Albania-Italy

Gas supply

  • Azerbaijan: Shah Deniz gas field, located in the Caspian Sea
  • Turkmenistan: maybe at a later stage
  • Iran: has been mentioned

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) approved USD 200 million and another USD 250 million for the Shah Deniz stage 2 gas field. It also considers USD 1 billion for TAP and TANAP together.

On top of USD 250 million for Shah Deniz stage II (as part of a package with the EBRD and commercial banks), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved in December 2016 an additional USD 1 billion for the Shah Deniz II gas field.

The European Investment Bank (EIB) considers EUR 2 billion for TAP and EUR 1 billion for TANAP.

The World Bank approved two USD 400 million loans for Turkey and Azerbaijan for TANAP. The World Bank’s Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) approved a guarantee of up to USD 950 million for TANAP against the risk of non-honoring of a sovereign financial obligation.

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) approved a USD 600 million loan for TANAP (pdf) at an unannounced extra-ordinary virtual Board meeting on December 21. (The AIIB’s project summary also states the combined EIB and EBRD support for TANAP as USD 2.1 billion, which suggests that, like the EIB, the EBRD is considering EUR 1 billion for TANAP.)

 

Earlier, already completed loans from the EBRD include support for the Southern Caucasus gas pipeline (SCP) (USD 70 million for Lukoil (2005) and USD 60 million for SOCAR (2004)) and the Shah Deniz gas field (USD 110 million for Lukoil (2005) and USD 100 million for SOCAR (2004)).

Both Shah Deniz and the South Caucasus Pipeline are considered parts of the Southern Gas Corridor’s infrastructure as the EBRD’s Managing Director for Energy and Natural Resources, Riccardo Puliti has stated.

 

Backing from Brussels

The pipeline is a key element of the Energy Union, the European Commission’s flagship initiative. TAP could also benefit from financing through the Project Bond Initiative as a Project of Common Interest.

 

A predictable stranded asset


Massive new gas infrastructure like this will lock Europe into fossil fuels for decades and will lead to hundreds of millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions.

The EU already has an overall surplus of gas import infrastructure. Especially since the 2007 recession, gas demand has significantly decreased (pdf) and is not expected to bounce back until the 2020’s.

The European Union’s 2050 Energy Strategy expects natural gas imports to further decrease under all scenarios. The 2020’s, when the pipeline is expected to be operational, should already mark a significant reduction in gas demand according to this roadmap.

The Southern Gas Corridor would only widen the surplus in Europe’s gas import infrastructure and likely turn into a liability.

Gas firms lobbied to weaken EU renewables target


Bringing more gas to Europe would be at odds with the EU’s climate leadership aspirations, its emission reduction goals (40% cut by 2030) and its renewables targets (27% in 2030).

This dissonance between the EU’s goals and planned investments is no coincidence. Big energy corporations have a great deal to lose if we shift away from a centralised energy system that depends on fossil fuels.

Gas companies like BP, one of the main companies involved in the Southern Gas Corridor, have lobbied intensively against renewables subsisides and for a greater role for gas in the EU’s energy plans.
