On Monday, the EU was said to be working on proposals for an EU oil embargo on Russia. Join Our Community Europe could start to sanction Russian energy supplies, energy historian Daniel Yergin has told Bloomberg Television on Thursday.

“I think we’re going to start to see sanctions,” Yergin said.

The EU has been seriously mulling sanctions on Russian energy supply since the EU condemned the killing of unarmed civilians in Bucha by Russian forces while retreating from Ukrainian towns.

While the EU has managed to sanction coal and has committed to weaning itself off Russian oil by the end of the year, the EU cannot so easily disentangle itself from Russian natural gas, and such a feat would likely be measured in years.

Europe collectively depends on Russian natural gas for around one-third of its total demand. It depends on Russia‘s crude oil for one-fourth of its demand. Europe has refrained from directly targeting Russian energy exports, fearing that sanctions or an embargo could lead to a deep recession in the major European economies, including the biggest one, Germany. Germany depends on Russia for half of its gas supplies.

Pressure has been mounting on Russian energy buyers since Russia invaded Ukraine, and on Monday, the EU was said to be working on proposals for an EU oil embargo on Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said that Europe doesn’t have a viable immediate replacement for Russia‘s natural gas, and that attempting to do so would have a huge negative effect on European economies.

Leaders of EU member states were thought to be set to discuss at the end of May at a summit the possibility of jointly buying natural gas to keep from competing with each other for non-Russian gas supplies.

The European Commission presented a plan in early March to cut EU demand for Russian gas by two-thirds before the end of 2022 and completely by 2030. The plan, REPowerEU, will seek to diversify gas supplies, speed up the roll-out of renewable gases and replace gas in heating and power generation.

The Commission “is working at full speed to phase out Russian fossil fuels,” under the plan unveiled earlier in March, following Russia‘s invasion of Ukraine, Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, said at the end of March.
