‘Our main goal is to ensure transparency in relations among the sides participating in field of the energy supply’, European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic said at the press conference dedicated to the 4th Ministerial Meeting of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) Advisory Council.


According to him, the European Commission made new decisions on this issue.


‘EU countries verifies whether any energy supply issues comply with the European Commission’s decisions or not. If any supplier supplies more than 40% of energy in any country on the basis of new commitments, the agreement that the supplier signed in this field should be submitted to the European Commission for verification. This means that European Commission’s decision is important. The main point is that we are working on diversification of our energy supply. Therefore we are here today. At the same time, we are also working on compressed liquid gas terminal network for provision of access to the global markets. We’ll feel safer when SGC starts to supply Europe with energy in 2020’.
