Baku, November 2, AZERTAC
The Southern Gas Corridor project is running in very professional manner, European Commission Vice President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic told New Europe.
He made the remarks during the press conference at TATRA Summit in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Sefcovic said that the competition is very tough but he is confident that the Caspian gas would reach Europe before 2020 via the Southern Gas Corridor.
“An enormous investment was made. The project is running in very professional manner and, of course, the business scale is clearly there and is based on the timely conclusion of the construction of the Southern Gas Corridor and there are already agreements of purchase signed. So I believe that before 2020 we will have the Caspian gas in the European Union,” Sefcovic said.
