Gazprom at the Forefront of Economic and Political Battles with Europe

Gazprom at the Forefront of Economic and Political Battles with Europe

There is a reason why the report has a second title, "Can LNG Replace Russian Gas Exports?" It reflects how unusual the current situation in the European gas market is.

Gazprom is being actively thrown out of the market. Its annual supplies to Europe have shrunk from the previous 150 billion to 65 billion cubic metres of gas. This, however, is still a respectable volume.

European officials assure that they have already learnt how to live without Russian gas, so they will bring its purchases down to but nominal values in 2023. Their main hope is liquefied natural gas.

Today the EU must make a crucial decision: whether it has passed the point of no return in gas business with Russia and whether it is certain that its economy will endure without supplies of Russian pipeline gas. Or, on the contrary, Europe will realise after all that the gas balance will not be achieved and the payment for so headlong a rush for LNG will be disproportionate.

Assessment of the potential volume of LNG that will appear on the market before the end of the current decade will be the most important factor for making the decision. That is why, actually, we have decided to answer this question and thereby reconstruct the logic behind the thinking of present-day officials in Brussels.

If the Europeans believe that enough LNG has appeared on the market, decisions regarding Gazprom may be tough indeed. If there is no solution to the gas equation for the time being, certain flexibility might appear.

Analytical series “The Fuel and Energy Complex of Russia”:

Outlook for Russian LNG Industry
Russian Energy and West One Year after Ukraine Conflict Began: Are There Connections Still?
Green Agenda in Russia during Bitter Conflict with West
After February 2022 the agenda was radically rewritten. Western companies began leaving Russia en masse, economic relations with the West were drastically reduced, and the Russian economy began to be pushed violently from the global economic space, hemmed in by sweeping sanctions. All that was, to put it mildly, not the best background for talking about ESG. Especially because tasks of survival and stability under unprecedented pressure became the priority in the economy. In late 2022, however, attempts to reanimate the ESG agenda already became obvious. The message is put across insistently that it is important to Russia regardless of the foreign policy situation. While earlier the “green pivot” was seen as an opportunity to attract Western investors and their technological solutions to Russia, now Keynesian reliance on domestic manufacture is discussed.
