Gazprom: a minute of sanctions against Nord Stream 2 costs the EU 8 tons of CO2 Pipeline gas from Russia is considered one of the most environmentally friendly solutions, while LNG supplies from the USA to Europe have one of the highest carbon footprints »
Every minute of the sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline costs Europe 8 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This was stated by the deputy head of Gazprom Oleg Aksyutin at the Tatarstan Petrochemical Forum.
“Sanctions have really real consequences. Every minute of non-operation of this gas pipeline— this is an additional 8 tons of CO2 due to gas supplies through other carbon-intensive pipeline routes, — he pointed out.
Aksyutin added that the increase in the supply of liquefied natural gas from the United States to Europe in the first half of the year by 23 billion cubic meters. m led to an increase in CO2-equivalent emissions by 13 million tons. one of the highest, — he noted.
Referring to expert research, the deputy head of Gazprom pointed out that pipeline gas from Russia is considered one of the most environmentally friendly solutions.
«Nord Stream-2»— gas pipeline from Russia to Europe, which runs along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. It consists of two lines with a length of more than 1.2 thousand km each. Gas was supposed to be supplied to Germany through the sea territories of Russia, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Denmark.

After Russia recognized the independence of the DPR and LPR and launched a special operation in Ukraine, the certification process was stopped, and the operator itself fell under US sanctions.
In May, Gazprom said that the infrastructure of the gas pipeline, which is located in Russia, will be used to gasify the northwestern regions.
In the summer, Gazprom sharply reduced the volume of gas supplies via Nord Stream 1; first from 167 million to 67 million cubic meters. m, and then up to 33 million cubic meters. m.
The company attributed this to the retention of the gas turbine engine by the German company Siemens due to Canadian sanctions, as well as the end of the life of other turbines. German Economy Minister Robert Habeck, in turn, considered the reduction in exports politically motivated.
On August 31, the company announced a complete halt in supplies via Nord Stream; until September 3rd due to “planned preventive work”.
Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed launching Nord Stream 2 to solve the energy crisis in Europe. “We have one more route ready— Nord Stream 2. It can be run»,— said the Russian leader.
He said that he discussed the topic with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, but he stressed that now was not the time. Then Putin pointed out that in this case, half of the volume of gas would be directed to domestic needs.
The German Minister of Economy compared the possible launch of Nord Stream 2; with the raising of the white flag and the surrender of Europe.
