European Union governments not happy with idea of uniform Russian gas price - envoy

"It contradicts the entire philosophy of the EU energy policy", - russian Ambassador to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said.

BRUSSELS, May 09 /. Russian Ambassador to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said EU governments and energy companies are not happy with the idea of uniform price for Russian gas.
"EU Energy Commissioner [Gunther] Oettinger's idea to fix a uniform gas price for all EU members does not make EU governments or companies very happy," Chizhov told Russian reporters.

"Also, it contradicts the entire philosophy of the EU energy policy, about which Mr Oettinger makes constant and pretentious declarations concerning the need of competition on the European market," the envoy said.

"That is, he is opposed to Gazprom's monopoly yet support the monopoly of the European Commission. 

That European consumers will find this price advantageous is far from certain."

"I believe this idea is odd and illogical and that it contradicts the EU's energy policy," he added.

The speculation about supplies of liquefied gas to Europe, as well as shale gas from the United States, is just a show, Chizhov said.

"I'm confident that its price will be at least 30% higher than that of Russian gas."

The USA will not forget its own interests. 

Large supplies or liquefied gas to the world market will result in an increase in gas prices in the USA,the envoy said noting that he doubted that the USA needed it.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
