EU/Norway Energy Dialogue: extracts from the joint press briefing by Andris Piebalgs and Âslaug Haga, Norwegian Minister for Petroleum and Energy

77 views

At a joint press briefing on 29 May 2008 in Brussels, Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, emphasized the importance of Norway's gas supplies to the EU. As Norway plans to decrease its oil production in the years to come, Åslaug Haga, Norwegian Minister for Petroleum and Energy, told journalists that Norway however will increase its gas production over the next decade and that the European continent's market will be the first one to benefit from these supplies. Asked to comment recent calls for lowering taxes on oil products, Andris Piebalgs said this would not be the right response. He added that they should not deviate from the policy that they should limit energy consumption, and tax policy is part of the limitation of energy consumption.
