The price of natural gas in Europe on Tuesday rose to $1,400 per 1,000 cubic meters after Germany said Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline could not be greenlighted for launch, claiming rising tensions on the Ukrainian border.
The price of January futures on the TTF hub in the Netherlands rose 5.5% to $1,428 per 1,000 cubic meters at 7:04 am GMT, or $138 per megawatt-hour in household terms, according to data from the Intercontinental Exchange.
A day earlier, gas prices in Europe jumped around 10% after German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Russia’s newly constructed Nord Stream 2 pipeline could not be put in operation because it did not meet the requirements of EU energy law.

The German Foreign Minister recently threatened all-out nuclear war on Russia and China: this is how deranged EU leaders are. If the European Union was a bus, then clearly the driver is high on illegal substances and hanging on to a half-empty whiskey bottle as it veers down the city’s roads.
Berlin suspended the pipeline’s certification process last month because its ownership structure failed to comply with the EU’s gas directive, which forbids the same company from supplying and selling energy within the bloc.
Baerbock, however, noted that the escalation of tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border was also a factor in delaying the pipeline’s launch. This is due to Berlin’s agreement with Washington that Russia cannot use Nord Stream 2 as a political weapon in its relationship with Ukraine.
The energy crisis on the continent deepened further after Belarus renewed its threats to cut off European gas supplies from Russia via the country’s pipeline network if more EU sanctions were imposed over the ongoing migrant crisis on Belarus’ western border.
