With the invasion of Ukraine at the forefront of our legislative agenda, it was the time to have a conversation on how we move forward with the energy transition while securing the security of gas supply. That is why we held the first EU-US LNG Industry Working Group;
E.U. – U.S. LNG Industry Joint Statement of Support and Recommendations for the Achievement of the RePowerEU and U.S. – E.U. Energy Security Taskforce U.S. LNG Targets
Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 the European Commission issued a Communication for More Affordable, Secure and Sustainable Energy calling for an additional 50bcm of LNG in 2022 and the complete phase out of Russian natural gas supplies to the EU by 2027.
Welcome to this edition of Molecules. Things have continued to move quickly in Brussels as the EU institutions respond to the invasion of Ukraine. As the aggression continues, our thoughts remain very much with the Ukrainian people.
At this time, my thoughts, and those of everyone in Eurogas, are with the people of Ukraine. As difficult as it may be, it is imperative that we look at this situation head on. We are in constant contact with our member Naftogaz and we are deeply moved by their courage and resilience.
