to the diversification of natural gas supply, said Prime Minister
of Romania Nicolae Ciuca, Trend reports.
He was addressing the ceremony of commercial launch of the
“Though this is a moment for celebration for the developers of
the project, and for all its beneficiaries, we should remain
realistic and acknowledge that diversification of supply and routes
needs to speed up as Europe has to get rid of dependency on Russian
fossil fuels. The energy crisis felt by the whole Europe made us
even more united in our efforts to find solutions and to ensure the
necessary for this winter as well as for the future in the logic of
sustainability and environmental protection,” said Ciuca.
He pointed out that regional cooperation and jointly developed
solutions are key to success, as individual actions do not offer
sufficient answers in time of crisis.
“The completion of the Vertical Corridor is a part of such
solutions, as it will facilitate gas transit to Central and Eastern
Europe and to the Western Balkans by connecting the Southern Gas
Corridor and BRUA. This will give access to gas resources from the
Caspian Sea, as well as to the LNG terminals in the north of
Greece,” added Romania's prime minister.
