They want it all

Gazprom wants all of Libya’s gas. They’re looking to consolidate their influence over the European gas market by buying off the other major suppliers in North Africa, which, which would leave Norway the only other major supplier of importance acting on its own. How afraid should the Europeans be?

One thought on “They want it all

  1. Very afraid, actually. Russia is indeed buying back not only its competitors, but more importantly it is slowly strangling Europe. Next time there will be a crisis between the two, Russia won’t even have to roll tanks to the border. They will just shut our electricity off.

    This is why we need some serious alternative energy policy and also the reason why I think that Europe can’t do without nuclear energy (unfortunately). The only way we can tackle the Russian ambitions is to show them that we don’t need them.
