00:00:49 Soundbite by Günther Oettinger (in GERMAN) saying that in the last 7 years, but in the latest 18 months in particular, the US have done a total change in his huge energy market; these changes will reach the markets all over the world; the US will be, in 4 years, the most important gas producer worldwide, overcoming Russia, and in the next 10 years they will probably beat Saudi Arabia and Russia in oil production as well. 00:00:44

00:01:43 Soundbite by Günther Oettinger (in GERMAN) saying that this shows the global and geo-political importance for industry beyond regional and national markets; for the European Union, Russia is the most important partner and they consider President Putin as a tough but fair negotiator; but it is clear that the EU's Russian partners, especially Mr Putin, believes in gas strength and believes that gas prices are strong instruments to restore Soviet influence. 00:00:41

00:02:41 Soundbite by Günther Oettinger (in GERMAN) saying that energy has become the most important instrument for policy with energy contracts and prices; in the US, we are looking at a total block between White House and Capitol: only in one thing is America in agreement: to start the process of re-industrialisation and to acquire a new energy-intensive industry, in order to improve the job market and to solve the budget problem; and this against Europe, but in total friendship; Europe's de-industrialization instead is going fast; in some European regions, there is no industry at all, in other ones not enough, but also where industry is strong the durability is not guaranteed. 00:00:52
