Greek Energy Min Meets with His Azeri Counterpart

ALEXANDROUPOLIS – The global energy crisis and closer cooperation between Greece and Azerbaijan in the natural gas sector dominated a meeting between Environment and Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas and the Energy Minister of Azerbaijan Parviz Shahbazov in Alexandroupolis on Friday.

As Skrekas said “The two countries are closely collaborating in the energy sector and Greece is using the TAP pipeline, covering 20 percent of its national needs with natural gas from Azerbaijan”.

Skrekas highlighted the importance of the Natural Gas South Corridor for the energy security of Europe and the diversification of the supply and routes for energy via the TANAP, TAP and SCPX pipelines.

He also referred to the completion of IGB construction works, noting that it is infrastructure of strategic importance that helps end reliance on imports of Russian fuel.

Skrekas also presented the entire strategy of the Greek government to guaranteee the adequacy of the natural gas supply.

“Greece is contributing in this direction with the start of the construction of the new floating LNG station in Alexandroupolis, while another floating station will be added in the next years in Alexandroupolis, a third in Corinth and another in the area of Kavala”.

Finally, both ministers agreed to support actions for the use of renewable gases, such as biomethane and green hydrogen, in the existing natural gas transfer systems and the creation of special infrastructure to support them.
