European Union ready for growth in LNG trade with US

European Union ready for growth in LNG trade with US”

"We believe the pipeline would undermine Europe's overall energy security and stability by providing Russian Federation another tool for the political coercion of European countries, especially Ukraine".

But more than half of USA exports go to just three countries - Mexico, South Korea, and China - and the European Commission says less than one percent of Europe's gas come from America.

President Trump publicly criticized Germany over its Baltic Sea gas pipeline deal with Russian Federation, calling the wealthiest nation in the European Union "a captive to Russian Federation".

Earlier this year, Germany approved the construction of a Russian gas pipeline called Nord Stream 2, which was supposed to expand on an existing pipeline under the Baltic Sea.

Trump arrives in 'hot spot' Britain, questioning May's Brexit plan
Some British citizens are even more distressed about Trump than they are about the U.K.'s own feverish political turmoil. A 20-foot-tall blimp depicting President Trump as a cartoon baby stands inflated in London's Bingfield Park.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has not shown any willingness to halt the controversial pipeline project, but at times she has indicated at least some scepticism, acknowledging that the project was not an entirely economic one but also of political significance. "Just like any commercial offering, the pipeline will only be used by customers if the seller offers natural gas at a price the market can support". However, the United States gas is more expensive than that supplied through Russian pipelines.

In slamming Germany for its deal to double imports of Russian gas through Nord Stream II, Trump charged Berlin was spending billions of euros for its energy needs from Russia that it could be spending on Nato's defence.

EU President Donald Tusk stepped up to the fight with his own salvo against Trump on Tuesday, telling him to "appreciate your allies" and reminding him Washington that Europe had come to its aid following the 9/11attacks.

Trump's attack on the Gazprom PJSC-backed pipeline followed dredging work that started in May to make way for the pipeline even as USA officials were threatening sanctions.

Uruguay vs. Portugal - Football Match Report
Uruguay is the only team that didn't concede a goal in the first round - in a group containing Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And up front they boast two of the greatest goal-scorers of their generation in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani .

German officials have said they don't expect the U.S.to sanction the pipeline, and Trump did not refer to sanctions during his heated exchange with Stoltenberg.

Involved in the pipeline project Nord stream-2 company can face sanctions. "I think that's very inappropriate", he said as Upstream went to press.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders have expressed concern that President Trump's presence may undermine the value of the organization's decades-old alliance.

History has shown that Russian Federation has a penchant for attempting to control Europe by cutting off energy supplies. It's the biggest single supplier of the fuel, and Gazprom's shipments to the continent hit a record a year ago. There are always other options, the USA secretary said, noting that the parties had held frank discussions on Nord Stream 2.
