According to Western media, Putin taught the West and the UK a lesson by decree on the Sakhalin-2 project.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on special measures in the field of fuel energy.
The measures are related to the unfriendly actions of a number of foreign countries.
The document published on the official portal of legal information says about the order to change the operator of the Sakhalin-2 oil and gas project, and transfer the company’s property to the state.
Thus, the operator’s property will be transferred to companies created by the government.
Its use will be carried out free of charge, and the state will assume the rights and obligations of the operator.
The shareholders of “Sakhalin Energy” are “Gazprom” (50%+1 share), Shell (27.5% minus 1 share), Mitsui & Co. (12.5%), Mitsubishi (10%).
According to journalists of the British edition of the Financial Times, Putin’s decision on Sakhalin-2 has taught the West and the UK a lesson.
The article emphasizes that the actions of the President of Russia have become a warning for fuel producers trying to quickly sell their assets.
First of all, we are talking about British Petroleum and French Total Energies, which have investments in projects for the development of Russian gas fields.
“Moscow does not want Shell to remain a ghost shareholder that does not generate profit”, – the newspaper writes.
