How long does it take to make a ship to transport GAS fromt he US?
Probably a few years per ship, not to mention the wait time due to current orders being made.
give or take around 30 days +/- - Depending on the cargo type and the receiving facility location.
US has no where near the CAPACITY and LOGISTICS to ship GAS to the EU.
I don't understand why you guys are such insular thinkers. You do understand that trade between nations utilizes vessels from more than just those 2
nations right? You guys seem fixed on just the US, while you completely ignore the private industry in addition to government vessels / foreign
businesses across the globe.
This is one of the reasons you will see on tv, as an example the oil cargo vessel seized by special forces at the request of the Libyan government,
where the vessel picks up cargo in one country, with a destination to a second country, all while flying the flag of a 3rd party.
Please, educate yourself and quit solely fixing on just the US. It undermines your claims / credibility when you do not take into account all
You would need a few hundred ships continually shipping gas.
Which occurs on a daily basis by companies all over the globe.
Shale gas, that is going down well with the populus of countries I hear.
Some countries allow it, some do not. It depends on the environmental laws of each nation. However your comment here seems off base so please
clarify why you brought it up and in what regards it fits into the topic.
All you are going to have with that is bad health, dirty water, taps on fire et al. Shale gas will not meet the capacity without destroying your own
country in the process. Mass protests et al. once earth tremors begin and water becomes dirty.
Kindly link to the source where you got this information from please.
How long to get a piple line to the country, and one would need many pipelines from all those other suppliers. Talk about a nightmare.
Depends on what country in question and type of pipeline. If you are referring to Russia their nightmare scenario just started since the pipelines
they want to build run through NATO countries now. Russia relies on its energy export sector for a chunk of its GDP (with energy being 25% for
Russia). What happens to Russia when nations develop their own sources and stops using Russia?
It would take the EU decades to ween itself off Russian gas. Anyway Russia doesn't care, they can trade east.
A claim that has not been supported. By all means, link me to where you get this info . time table from.
Germany is the FOURTH largest economy in the world. They export a LOT to Russia, I think a lot of businesses have some sway with politicans. Germany
is the backbone of the EU and once their economy goes down the #ter, the rest of the EU will suffer BIG.
While it may be the 4th largest economy in the world, their annual trade balance with Russia accounts for 60 billion dollars.
I cannot wait until we have an alternative to SWIFT/IBAN network, it is too expensive to send money over SWIFT anyway, I would rather use the BRICS
alternative that you can be sure is pretty much soon to be turned on. About time we got some alternative network.
Ah yes... BRICs will make all the difference... nothing like 5 nations who are all members of the G20 to fix things.
