Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well argued and well researched.

Of course, I have confirmation bias as I guessed from the start that the claim to replacing Russia as Europes gas supplier was bogus. Now I actually have something to base that on.

Thanks.  I have been cranking away at this for about a week, so some of the references may be a little out of date.  

I was watching CNN a few weeks back, and noticed that Newt Gingrich kept pulling out this idea.  And.... it sounded like bullshit to me.  So I thought, I know where the numbers are at.  The IEA European Gas site is awesome, and it makes it possible to put actual numbers to the whole situation. Converting between metric and customary is a pain, but with US EIA numbers, you quickly see that this all is a gigantic pipe dream.
