As reports The Wall Street Journal, German Chancellor has declared it at a meeting with deputies of the Bundestag. According to her, the government will allocate 500 million euros for joint financing of the project. Merkel recognizes that the terminal will need a lot more years state support, however considers the decision strategic. The similar compromise with the USA as writes the edition, can protect from the American sanctions "Nord Stream — 2" on which cheap gas from Russia will arrive. The Deputy CEO for gas problems of National Energy Security Fund Alexey Grivach:aleksey Grivach comments the Deputy CEO for gas problems of National Energy Security Fund "Seems to me, it is such politeness from Germany to the USA to show: you, children, accuse us that we depend on Russia, we buy the Russian pipeline gas and we don't buy the American LNG, here we are ready to construct infrastructure, and if the companies have interest in purchases of the liquefied gas from America, they will make it instead of pipeline gas. Here we create equal conditions, and further the market solves. But the matter is that now the German companies have no problems to buy LNG, including American. Infrastructure for this purpose is in the neighboring Netherlands and Belgium, it stands idle. Moreover, a part of capacities is even reserved by the German companies, but they don't use them because it is unprofitable, and they with great pleasure buy the Russian pipeline gas. But, on the other hand, as a certain additional argument in a civilized dispute it will be strengthening of positions of Germany in dialogue with the USA". "To Nord Stream — 2" construction of the LNG terminal definitely doesn't bear any threat, the deputy director for investments of IK "Univer Capital" Dmitry Aleksandrov:dmitry Alexandrov the deputy CEO for investments of IK "Univer Capital" "Considers there is nothing terrible even if this terminal will be constructed. Because, first, about a stop of Nord Stream the speech doesn't go, and, at least, now from Germany, from the MFA in particular, reaction very rigid on all attempts, including from the USA, to interfere in construction of this pipe. Just it, maybe, on the contrary, is the concession in the form of construction of the terminal on gasification directed to removing this sharpness of the attacks against Nord Stream. The price of LNG changes very strongly, now it it is essential, on a third actually, especially in certain days, is higher, than the contract price of the Russian gas by this year for Germany. Until decisions on acquisition of gas are defined a certain economic komponenty, but not political, then serious threat for the Russian gas
