BAKU, Azerbaijan, February 4
Since last December, the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline can deliver almost 10bcm of gas to the European market, European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson said addressing the 8th Ministerial Meeting of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) Advisory Council, Trend reports.
"Our agenda today reflects well the challenges and opportunities ahead of us. Some of them concern the functioning of the Southern Gas Corridor. We will discuss them in session one. Others concern the long term vision for our energy systems. This will be tackled in the second session. Let me share some thoughts on each," she said.
"First, today’s meeting should serve us to look back at the way the Southern Gas Corridor has worked, after one year of full scale operation. The corridor is a great engineering and policy achievement. We should not fail to acknowledge this every time we meet. It crosses six countries and stretches over 3 500 km, it is a lasting proof of what cooperation among partners can produce. Since last December, the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline can deliver almost 10bcm of gas to the European market," she added.
