It won't be as wild as you might think. The German state was not financially involved in the project. Nord Stream 2 AG is wholly owned by a Gazprom subsidiary from the Netherlands.This is going to be a massive kick in the swingers for the Germans
European Union lawmakers passed a resolution on Thursday calling for the bloc to stop the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to take Russian natural gas to Europe, in response to the arrest of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.www.reuters.com
Anyone have any figures of how much Germany & German companies have pumped into this 90% complete project ?
There is a clause in the contract that the partners of the former joint venture, which had to be dissolved after the Poles filed antitrust infringement proceedings, Uniper, OMV, Wintershall, Engie, Royal Dutch Shell, must each pay 10% of the costs for the pipeline, i.e. between 950 million and 1 billion euros per partner.
Gazprom will have to pay or better write off the other 5 Billions and the significantly more cost-intensive measures in Russia, for the Nord Stream 2 feed-in, etc.
The only thing that can still happen is that the former partners try to reclaim the money, but that would probably be GroßEUropa, wouldn't it?
Edited because of incoherent babble in places.
I can still make it to the EU Commission President.
