Security of gas supply

311 views

On 16 July 2009, the European Commission adopted a new regulation to improve security of gas supplies in the framework of the internal gas market. The proposed Regulation would strengthen the existing EU system for gas supply security by ensuring that all Member States and their gas market players take effective action well in advance to prevent and mitigate the consequences of potential disruptions to gas supplies. It also would create mechanisms for Member States to work together to deal effectively with any major gas disruptions which might arise During the gas crisis of January 2009, a number of European citizens suffered from shortages of supply. This was the case particularly for Member States that were less interconnected with the rest of the Internal Energy Market. During the crisis, the rules of the security of gas supply directive (like calling for the Gas Coordination Group) were applied with positive results in a number of Member States, but both Parliament and Council considered that the directive had to be reinforced to increase the security of gas supply.
