Putin Is Still Waiting for His Gas Pipe Dream to Come True

And he will wait some more as pipelines have one single problem that cannot easily be solved. Geography. Distance matters, and Terrain matters. Spread of sources matters. Anyone looking at a map will see that Western Siberian gas to China is a long, long way. I have strong doubts that any pipeline can bridge the gap economically. All gas getting from Russia to China right now through the PoS pipeline likely does not make Russia a single buck. They don’t tell me of course but there are rumors and there is – reality. Russia simply cannot replace European markets. That’s either a pipedream or a ruse. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/newsletters/2023-10-17/putin-is-still-waiting-for-his-gas-pipe-dream-to-come-true?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email
