Why Germany Can’t Buy Natural Gas From the US


Canada possesses important disquiet with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, which would yield gas from Russian Federation to the Baltic coast of Germany, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said.

Trump told Germany at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday that it was wrong to support an $11-billion Baltic Sea pipeline to import even more Russian gas while being slow to meet North Atlantic Treaty Organisation targets for defence spending. That said, the works have been scheduled in close co-ordination with Nord Stream AG's upstream and downstream partners so that gas supply to European customers during that period is ensured via the alternative transportation route.

Russian Federation and Germany have many times stressed that Nord Stream 2 was only a commercial project and was not politically motivated.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association said new tariffs on Chinese imports would punish American families by driving up prices. US Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch described the move was "reckless". "It's up to them to open the door again".

"I don't know what he means by that", she said.

To justify the project, the Nord Stream II company predicts the European Union will need to an extra 120 billion cubic metres of gas over the next 20 years. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal (Nord Stream 2) with Russian Federation where they're paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russian Federation.

"President Trump's brazen insults and denigration of one of America's most steadfast allies, Germany, is an embarrassment", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement.

"We discussed it with Ukraine", Freeland said.

Russian Federation supplies more than a third of Europe's gas, and is increasing its market share.

Most Eastern European countries have expressed their concern over the pipeline project over the years, claiming it directly threatens the security of their countries as Russian Federation will able to use its vast energy resources as a way to have leverage over Western Europe. "The majority of European Union countries start to understand the real goal of the Nord Stream 2".
