18PP002 - Eurogas views on the modification of the Gas Directive.pdf
A very happy New Year to you and your teams! We look forward to another year of fruitful
Eurogas has undertaken the attached initial analysis of the Commission’s proposal for a
modification of the Gas Directive with respect to pipelines to and from third countries.
This showed that the proposal raises a number of, partially significant, issues bearing, inter alia,
the risk of deteriorating the conditions for the operation of existing and potential import
pipelines as well as the relations of the EU and individual Member States with the export
countries concerned. This could affect the diversification of supplies, security of supply, and the
well-functioning of the internal gas market.
Eurogas therefore strongly urges for a full impact assessment and stakeholder consultation to be
performed before the proposal is further pursued.
As always, we are at your disposal for discussion.
