6:31 am
backs of the army and many have told are to other countries now too severe for them to enter. the lead of nordstrom's first gas a livery as we talk to a man who was behind the ambitious project from the start his former german chancellor gerhard schroeder who is now chairman of the well he tells us why the fuel route is important all over. gerhard schroeder was chancellor of germany from one nine hundred ninety eight to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at nordstrom's russia's new gas pipeline under the baltic sea europe mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom. we're not talking about a dependence on russia we're talking about cooperation between russia on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector. north stream is viewed as a priority project by both russia and the e.u.
6:32 am
because it's been part of europe's energy networks since two thousand and six is recognized by the european parliament and the e.u. council of energy ministers last and from all appears from problem and ordered from that the energy minister to nordstrom's pipelines have already been laid what top of the third one will be added and what will be its capacity we haven't yet that we currently have at least two pipelines with a total capacity of fifty five billion cubic meters would be the question of whether a third or even fourth pipeline will be laid that should be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom on the one side and holland's got sunni france's g.d.s. suez and germany's on and b.s.f. windowsill on the other if investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about stink financing in the us then it could be done i do not know whether they will make such a decision as it was not part of my work line of. brussels wants all russian energy companies not just gazprom to be allowed to export gas to europe what are
6:33 am
the implications of that for gazprom and europe. regulator reprovision is not the issue the e.u. germany and the rest of the nations need gas to sensibly reform their energy policy russia on the other hand has to sell gas to keep its budget in order so there's a. co-dependency which is a good thing now to be happy to see european companies invest into russia and european markets open up to russian companies it's a good free market economy is good for the mark picture what do you think of the recent you raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about the or p.r. guys i think europeans need gas gas has many uses with the political uncertainty in north africa it's good to have a stable partner that you can rely on and russia is one of these you know better than anyone else for a space that written recently switched from export to india old europe needs a gas supply to maintain
6:34 am
a stable mix of energy sources but it's climatic conditions require them to get it needs norway to go outside but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to national companies would be a wise move of. the name to do some officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is for though that's most i guess it so we have to admit that way but i hope we will get over it it's understandable the european union needs russia geopolitically but the reverse is also true there's no question about it the time has come to start cooperating and stop looking back at ideological differences if that is for the could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was that isn't as it towards your involvements of wishes in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and europe i hope russia never has to make a choice the russian government is evidently pro european but europe cannot keep pushing russia or away it hurts russians pride and we have to keep in mind that
6:35 am
while russia has the alternative of shipping to asia europe has no such alternative and europe's geo political position will only improve if it manages to enter a tiny hard to ship with russia one and at the same time grant a session to turkey that would be a sound strategy and into the future of the rest. yesterday's debate. you're watching are to back to my top story in a few minutes russian gas will start its flow into western europe president medvedev and germany's chancellor merkel are among those ready to launch the supply and you're looking at live pictures of that event well that said do try to cross in there and listen in to what president dmitri medvedev has to say. most of them young ladies and gentlemen. let me today. we have a very symbolic event which we have. today. we're going to set into operation
6:36 am
the first part of the north stream pipeline which is a new page from the partnership between russia. and. the. teachers which we heard before all bear witness to. for the first time coming through the e.u. member states on the direct way you can and the sub see a pipeline which is one thousand two hundred twenty four kilometers long. touches the territories of baltics you states and we have the largest companies of germany the netherlands and france involved in this project which are very actively involved and i would like to thank all of them from russia and the electricity generated from this where contribute to want to be a reliable energy supply of the european consumers so we will strengthen the energy
6:37 am
reliability in europe of any of make life much more pleasant for many people in europe and this is a crucial point for the construction of the pipeline that was preceded by a very complex approval process and face we already heard this from. into. all see above when i was chairman of gus plum and i was involved in many meetings and talks in this respect and in the. comments of the notation so we had to handle also holds off problems but today it seems. we can no seely that these were men and i've urged pragmatical to economically efficient way and if we can definitely say that the new pipeline is the state of the both in terms of environmental protection. as we just smile in this presentation that very clearly the new pipeline. of
6:38 am
supply and the increasingly mond for fluid and i think next year when the second pipeline bird said to be set into operation consumers can receive as much as twenty five billion cubic metres of gaza dition to leave for their riches quite an impressive volume and we. are confident that the companies will manage to overcome all the difficulties and that they will recall sustainable growth and the addition. of all partners in twenty twenty. which can be increased to. to two hundred billion cubic meters of gas russia has always. gone much greater length fulfilling its obligations in the energy sector and we would still say this is still our most important obligation even at times when you cannot because the situation in russia was
6:39 am
definitely difficult but we endeavored to continue our gas supplies without interruption to europe and we will continue to do so in the future with our european partners in order to attract investment for the parts of the projects and i am convinced that such a network involvement with many mines risks along the entire energy supply and there's a certain very often beginning with the phase of gas and to supply electricity supplies to end consumers and german french companies are actively involved in the production and from russian gas fields and we are interested in the development of the gas distribution infrastructure and in the establishment of state of the art and ecologically sound power generation capacity including steam gas generators and
6:40 am
a body in the appropriate power stations and we hope. that there will be no artificial barriers to this cooperation out of them although i appreciate that there are different approaches that can be adopted which were already mentioned because. there is no economy clissold alternative to cooperation which is to the mutual benefit of all the parties involved and i would like to take this opportunity to come forward to all those who were involved in the construction of this pipeline which was a very big and very important work and i am confident. russia and be. contributions have many excellent and outstanding projects so from both in the energy sector and in other areas as well and we will manage through overcome all the problems we have a bright future and i would like to thank to congratulate everybody once again.
6:41 am
with christmas would fit you with many. ladies and gentlemen please welcome uncle america's chancellor of the federal republic of germany. with. me to you mr president and prime minister fiona minister present. to your commission are going to ettinger. minister for sending anything. to. chancellor schroeder so close to representatives from the energy companies and their guests of those events it is a great honor for us today to be here and look me in the sparrows stayed off and become book western pomerania and and germany. and it is a great honor for us to you. rate a project off such as to touch a dimension
6:42 am
a project at this an example for the corporation between russia and the european union and in the fields for also that is the precondition for the functioning of industry states the energy i supply to the countries this project you know you show the presence of so many representatives from different countries we show you that we can build on the basis offer a reliable partnership between the european union and russia and i think this protect us. paramount example thought this boy not stream is a milestone and european and actually partnership. as we could see in the film it is one of the. biggest infrastructure projects energy infrastructure projects of our time. there are just sixty or construction of the pipes positioning in the baltic sea all this demanded by technical standards that were fulfilled and strict
6:43 am
environmental rules. respected it and despite many difficulties in terms of the weather and also in terms of the approval process we managed to complete the. part of the. project can already be. launched today inaugurated today this is a major achievement and i would like to thank all the policies that contributed to this achievement you took over our major responsibility and times of the technical demands but also in respect to the interests of all the baltic sea state and i can say that there was good cooperation between politics and the economic and industrial interests not stream in cooperation with the authorities able to find
6:44 am
a balance solutions and this shows that the industry is capable of creating complex projects responsible. despite all the political support one has to say that stream. industrial project they have fought the response ability is with the industry and they were able to do it in this way but of course we as politicians are also interested in getting reliable energy supply and the not stream pipeline is an example for it the second one pipeline of the twin pipelines is under construction at the moment fifty five. in cubic meters gas you can see the immense share that this has in the german energy supply and european energy supply when speaking about security of supply them we also speak about the topic of diversification but we can say that despite all that is diversification russia is one of the most of the partners of utmost importance
6:45 am
for us the supply sources have to be safe and from europe it's also a very guaranteed one because we need it for the economic development of our country and this means that for decades to come we will closely be closely linked to each other so that the. consumer countries as well as russia benefit by the project it is a project that will be working on a long term basis and therefore i want to thank all the fathers and mothers of this project the authorities those who supported the party but also the experts who made it possible to use the. state of the arctic know that i wish to all of us that the second pipeline can be put into operation shortly and
6:46 am
i think the gas molecules are already. flowing through the pipeline and so not she will contribute to the fact that europe will have a secure supply of gas also in the future and not stream will also. work for the coal that the energy partnership between the european union and russia can be continued we will certainly have some critical discussions. in a market project is not easily understandable for everyone but i am confident that we will manage to do it maybe we will have to do make minor changes. ladies and gentleman. wish to all of us very good partnership and cooperation and i thank all of those who made it possible to realize this technology project. so let's begin.
