In the US, they said that Russian gas will remain the main one on the European market for a long time “The US already competes with Russia as an exporter of LNG and an exporter of oil on the global market, and we are ready to compete in the EU market by supplying gas.” There are 30 FSRUs already in storage facilities and regasification, “Oudkirk said on the sidelines of the energy conference, which was held in the Atlantic Council. At the same time, she admitted that “it is obvious that the amount that the US can sell to the EU is much less than the volume that Russia can sell through its pipelines.”
“We want to sell our gas all over the world, wherever the price is competitive, for this we will certainly need to deal with optimizing the cost of regasification, liquefying gas and storing,” the agency interlocutor summed up.

The Nord Stream-2 project involves the construction of two strings of a gas pipeline with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany. The new pipeline is planned to be built next to the “Nord Stream”. Against the implementation of the project is a number of countries, in particular Ukraine, which is afraid of losing revenues from the transit of Russian gas, and the United States, which have ambitious plans for exporting its LNG to Europe.
