Other Options for Gas Supply in Southeastern Europe

16 november 2015

The Head of Department for Strategic Studies in Energy of the Analytical Center Alexander Kurdin spoke at the Russian Oil and Gas Summit 'Transportation, storage, trading.' The report of the expert was dedicated to one of the most discussed directions within the summit - international infrastructure projects.

Mr Kurdin considered possible alternatives to Russian gas in Southeastern Europe in terms of their economic competitiveness and political support. 'The most obvious basis for the supply of gas in the region will be the 'Turkish hub', and for Turkey itself in this case it will be difficult to refuse imports from Russia. However, in Southeastern Europe, there are other options for the gas supply: the delivery of liquefied natural gas via Greece and Croatia, as well as the development of relations between Central and Southeastern Europe,' said the expert.

Mr Kudrin was reporting among leading oil and gas industry experts on technical and economic aspects of the Midstream segment.
