Moldova and Greece Signed the Gas Agreement

Cooperation between the states excludes Russia from the purchase of blue gas and attracts Ukrainian gas fields 

On April 6, the minister of energy of Moldova Viktor Parlikov held talks in Athens with the head of the Greek state gas and electricity distributor Energocom Victor Binzar. Within 2 years, Moldova plans to abandon the import of Russian gas completely, and Energocom presents a much better alternative. Notably, this framework agreement involves the trans-Balkan gas pipeline and underground gas fields of Ukraine in its logistics to Central Europe.

"Energocom's experience last season in using the Greece-Bulgaria interconnector showed the possibility of using the trans-Balkan gas pipeline in a reversible mode," Viktor Parlikov.

Greece is consolidating its position as a powerful energy provider: 1 liquefied natural gas terminal is already operating there, and a 2nd one will be launched by the end of 2023.
