Congratulations to GIE members @EnerginetDK and @GAZ_SYSTEM for launching the @BalticPipe_PL project.
This new energy corridor is a stepping-stone for Europe's #SecurityOfSupply:
It was an honour to be by your side for this very special occasion.

👏@RAGAustriaAG is shaking the storage sector by successfully testing #hydrogen storage into depleted reservoirs, without major issues with steel/cement components

➡️To reach 70 TWh of #H2 storage capacity by 2030, all geological formations will be needed

Reducing dependency on Russia?
That's what #FSRUs help with. They provide additional #LNG import capacities therefore diversifying roads & sources of supply.

@Gasunie's new #DutchEemsEnergyTerminal is strengthening the #EnergySecurity of the EU.


In a world where economies move continuously from 1 emergency to the next, #LNG regasification terminals are our #SafetyVest for:

Together for a secure, efficient

It is now time to act for energy security.
And this is what our members are doing.

We represent the gas infrastructure operators of Europe (GIE): our members work on fostering a resilient, secure, affordable and sustainable energy system for EU citizens and industries. We work and innovate with transmission, underground storage, and LNG terminal facilities. In other words, we offer solutions to store and transport renewable and low-carbon molecules – including hydrogen, natural gas or biogas – in large volumes and over long distances. These activities represent around 50 000 jobs across Europe.

In these challenging times, the importance of the security of gas supply is being recalled to all of us. Even though decarbonisation, integration and innovation remain pivotal, the need to diversify the roads for energy supply is highlighted. That’s simply essential if we want to deliver climate and social objectives in the most sustainable and efficient way. Good news: gas infrastructure can do that. Adapted policy levers must now put in place to enable it to unveil its full potential, including a major diversification.

We offer valuable solutions to strengthen energy security in Europe. LNG facilities could contribute to import above 250 bcm of renewables and low-carbon molecules from all around Europe. Storages can store 110 BCM of gasses. Transmission could broaden gas flows from west to east. It would be the occasion to broaden Europe’s choice in terms of energy providers therefore accessing to enhance flexibility. New European investments in infrastructures would enable to strengthen further the security of supply by increasing market interconnection, import terminals, storage capacity, grid interoperability and flexibility for more low-carbon and renewable gases.

It is now time to act to enhance security of supply. And this is what our members are doing.

Kind regards,

Torben Brabo

Slide “To deliver the ultimate decarbonisation goal, a future-proof solution is needed. And the gas infrastructure remains a pillar component of such an action plan. Today, we are already teaming up with the wind and solar power generation. By doing so, we will massively contribute to accelerating the deployment of renewable hydrogen in the soon future thanks to our technical capacities and ability to innovate.” Boyana Achovski, GIE Secretary General

Slide “The existing gas infrastructure represents a valuable asset for the development of the hydrogen value chain within the EU.” Frans Timmermans - Executive Vice-President

Slide “Europe’s extensive gas infrastructure can be retrofitted and future proofed to one day transport hydrogen across the EU.” Kadri Simson – Commissioner Energy
