Baku, November 30, AZERTAC
The European Commission supports the Southern Gas Corridor and we can have access to Azerbaijan's gas with the corridor.
This was stated by the European Commissioner for Energy and Climate Action Miguel Arias Canete in his interview to the Euronews agency.
Miguel Arias Canete stressed that the Commission considers the security of energy supply routes an absolute priority, and therefore “we want to diversify. We want the pipelines coming from all directions, and not to concentrate solely on gas pipelines limited to a single geographic situation. As a consequence, what we are doing now, through declaring projects of a community interest and financing to facilitate connecting Europe, which is to say the Connecting Europe Facility, is to support projects with interconnections with the electricity sector and the gas sector, such as the Southern Gas Corridor linking Italy with Azerbaijan, and we can have access to Azerbaijan's gas”.
