Warsaw is interested in gas from Nord Stream-2

Polish operator Gaz System has preliminary asked for the construction of gas pipeline, which will be able to supply 11 billion cubic meters of gas from the Nord Stream-2 project, although Warsaw is officially against the project. According to market participants, if the goal of Poland is to gain access to the German gas market and to maintain the importance of the Yamal - Europe gas pipeline, the easiest way to ensure this is through the virtual reverse.
Poland has asked for 11 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, which will be laid from Russia's Ust-Luga on the Baltic Sea to German Greifswald, said a member of the Wintershall’s Board Ties Tiessen. Wintershall participates in the project of Gazprom together with the German E.On, Anglo-Dutch Shell, Austrian OMV and French Engie. The news is remarkable due to the fact that Warsaw has officially always strongly opposed to the gas pipeline. Mr. Tiessen reported the country's desire to receive gas from the Nord Stream-2 pipeline at the conference in Berlin, when asked about the delay in issuing permits by Poland to investors to buy shares in the project. Deputy chairman of the Gazprom’s Board Alexander Medvedev confirmed the words of Ties Tiessen.

The EC’s anti-trust results against Gazprom fall short of expectations

The results of the three-year EU antitrust investigation against Gazprom, which were waited with joyful anticipation in many European countries and with anxiety in Moscow, as predicted by the Kommersant, has fallen short of forecasts. On the one hand, they were softer than they could, on the other – on the most serious claims Gazprom corrected its stance over the years, the situation on the market also changed. As a result, the charge of excessive pricing, which was to be the key one, now looks the most doubtful. The hard official positions of the parties, according to the Kommersant’s information, also only formally cover their willingness to negotiate. But the dialogue can be prevented by a policy that stands behind them.
The European Commission has published a list of antitrust claims against Gazprom (statement of objections). The final charges were significantly softer than the EC said, when started the investigation in 2012 (the first searches in the Gazprom’s companies in Europe took place a year before). Then Brussels suspected Gazprom of restricting the free movement of gas in the countries – the EU member states in Eastern Europe, preventing the appearance of other sources of supply and unfair pricing (linking the gas price to the price of oil). It was about eight markets - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria.
