  • Finland, Estonia to lobby Brussels for gas linkup
    Finnish biogas market and Nordic LNG market Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen is quoted as saying The Finnish government s decision however will mean the creation of a new state company to oversee the Balticconnnector project regardless of Gasum s objections subject to the EU approving funding Some Estonian analysts believe Gasum s involvement in the project will not be missed accusing the company of dragging its feet from the start Gasum has a vested interest in the status quo says Emmet Tuohy a Research Fellow at the Tallinn based International Centre for Defence and Security a think tank It makes considerable profits bringing in pipeline gas from Russia profits it can invest in smaller scale LNG terminals aimed at the marine shipping and industrial markets he tells The Baltic Times It has no incentive to change But the region as a whole would very much benefit from the pipeline he adds Regional companies would be able to negotiate more effectively with outside suppliers of LNG given the greater commercial attractiveness of an integrated market with its significantly higher demand Another factor is that Gazprom is more likely to renegotiate supply agreements if the region has alternatives The Finnish Government s decision was applauded by Estonian officials This is a very positive decision chairman of the board of the Estonian transmission system operator Elering Taavi Veskimagi told BNS We have put in a lot of effort to submit an application in the second call for proposals for projects of common interest already this fall The necessary documents for lodging a funding application for Balticconnector basically exist The project certainly has advanced to such a stage of readiness that now that a political decision has been made in both countries it can be submitted to the second round of funding applications he added Approval of this application by regulators and ministries is still required I believe that now that both countries political decision is in place this can be achieved within the said time frame According to Veskimagi he is unable and unwilling to comment on Gasum s decision to back out From our perspective it has no importance which concrete legal entity on the Finnish side is in charge it s for the Finnish state to decide how they will organize their gas market in the future he added Russia s warning Russia has watched on in consternation as energy link ups between EU member states in the Baltic Sea region have gotten underway a result of policy makers in Brussels pushing for diversified energy supplies to counter dependence of some EU member states on Russia During an interview with the US TV channel CBS Putin expressed dismay and alarm at the process of integrating Nordic Baltic energy networks with central and western Europe s In practice it means that a number of zones will emerge between several regions of the Russian Federation where we will have no power transmission lines since previously we used to have a loop transition through
