Oil price at january lvl, gas at march, gas tanks in germany at 99,6% full.
European oil embargo crude due december 5, gas cut off at its own accord by russia.
Letz see who wins that energy war, russia. How are your finances looking? We are warm.
Greetz from Germany


Warm maybe, but at a very high price that is fuel (pun intended) to unrest. I don’t understand that the EU as a whole brings sanctions on the road but is incapable of buying energy-ressources as a whole and lets the members fight above it instead

Max Beckhaus

As stated above, oil price is at pre 24.3. lvl and gas allmost. The gas prices will probably stay high, but that is no fuel to unrest. EU is a market economy, companys buy and sell commodities, not states.

Almost all energy providers have just raised their prices (again) . I hope you are right, though

Max Beckhaus

I could may be see unrest if we would actually run out of gas. That is out of the question right now. Russia will run out of cash though, sooner or later. That may end the war.


I checked the brent oil price and it is absolutely normal price, in past it was be higher or lower (now $88/barrel, in 2011-2014 was over $100/barrel). Problem is the price of electric/gas and this is a direct consequence of the green deal and the nuclear power plants closing in Germany. Photovoltaic and wind power plants is not stable in winter season and and therefore more gas is needed…


And nuclear power plants repairing in France….

Max Beckhaus

Indeed the nuclear power plants are the biggest Problem of electricity Inflation right now. Germany had to export a lot of gas/coal electricity to france.
the 2 of 3 nuclear power plants left in germany will not be shut down for now. Nuclear power is too expensiv in the long run.


Nuclear power plants have higher purchase price. But they have the most cheapest energy. In long run is the most cheapest energy sources, this is fact. Problem of Europe is that states stopped building of new nuclear power plants 30 years ago. I understand the coal power plants is not “green”, but renewable resources are very expensive and unstable in the winter season.

Max Beckhaus

Nuclear energy has high investment, high desinvestment costs, high long time costs for left overs and high maintainance costs when plants get old.
Wind and solar very much cheaper. Nuclear power may fill a niche for dark winter, i doubt it though, because it is to expensive for just 2-3 months.


Gas tanks are not sufficient to go through the winter, only 3 months of yearly consommation. if EU helps Ukraine by providing gas and electricity there will be a major problem. let’s see if you are so ironical in February, when German industry will have to sjut down


I don´t exactly situation of gas tanks in Germany. But our tanks (Czech Republic) are full and optimistic scenario (warm winter) is they have capacity until 8/2023, pesimistic scenario (cold winter) is until 4/2023. And I don´t think that it will incoming no gas in winter…. 

Max Beckhaus

No, all projections show, that this winter will be no bigger problem.
In fact industry is saving a lot right now.


The weather in Ukraine is starting to get worse and cold, even in places like bakhmut.
Will be pretty interesting to see if there will be many pushes. I don’t expect much next week since the weather forecast doesn’t seem to good.
Well Artillery will have a good time at least, so that’s something.

Once the Orcs pinkys start to get cold, they will leave. War will be over on February 24, 2023.
