EU rings bell over gas disaster domino effect
(MENAFN) A gas disaster in any one EU nation would incite a domino effect and quickly spread throughout the bloc, as said by Dutch Climate and Energy Minister Rob Jetten.
“It’s good if some member states can fill their gas storages by November 1, but if other countries fail to reach 80 percent – particularly big countries like Germany – then you have to be aware that this will be a domino effect for the whole of Europe,” Jetten informed Politico magazine on Tuesday.
The minister said that in the event of a stoppage of the Russian gas delivery, the Netherlands “will stand with neighboring countries.”
Meanwhile, Jetten underscored that tapping the Groningen gas field, after one of Europe’s largest and the continent’s major source of gas for years, would be an option of last resort.
