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:

Pieter van Aartsen, #GIEBoard Member represented the gas infrastructure at #PCIdaysEU.

EURACTIV – Security of gas supply: What role for gas infrastructure? 

30 June @ 12:30 - 14:00 CEST

Security of gas supply – What role for gas infrastructure?
Thursday 30 June 2022 | 12:30 – 14:00 CET



Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to new geopolitical and energy market realities. It required the EU to dramatically accelerate its clean energy transition while also looking for solutions to increase its energy independence.

In response to these hardships, the European Commission presented the REPowerEU Plan. The plan aims to rapidly reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels, fast forward the green transition, and increase the resilience of the EU-wide energy system. The watchwords are diversifying, saving, and accelerating clean energy

Join this EURACTIV Hybrid Conference where stakeholders will discuss the policy tools that can strengthen EU security of supply. Questions to be addressed include:


Part of the questions we will take:

  • How can gas supplies be secured in the most efficient and sustainable way, while at the same time ensuring the protection of EU citizens and industries? Is a holistic approach achievable?
  • What is the role of gas infrastructure? Can gas infrastructure operators connect Europe to the global market?
  • What solutions exist to transport and store renewables and low-carbon molecules over long distances with the existing and future LNG, underground storage and transmission facilities?



  • Aleksandra Tomczak, Member of Cabinet of EVP Frans Timmermans, European Commission
  • Jerzy Buzek MEP, Member ITRE Committee, European Parliament;
  • Czech Permanent Representation to the EU
  • Alex Barnes, Visiting Research Fellow at OIES
  • GIIGNL International Group of LNG Importers
  • More to be announced soon.
