January 23rd, 2022
Greece will build two more liquefied natural gas terminals, boosting the security of gas supply and gaining a strong role in transit, making the most of its strategic location and new supply corridors for Europe and the Balkans. Kathimerini newspaper.
Greek energy groups want to make the most of the opportunity for gas to be the fuel on the road to clean energy and the need for the Balkan countries to diversify their sources and not rely so much on Gazprom.
Therefore, Atia encourages the development of infrastructure for entering the Greek liquefied natural gas system.
Greece’s pipelines such as the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline, the Greece-Bulgaria interconnector, and the future interconnection with northern Macedonia will be used to reach neighboring countries and reduce their dependence on Turkey, which also invests in liquefied natural gas infrastructure, seeking Ankara to is a gas center for Southeast Europe.
Apart from the island of Revitusa off the coast of Attica, Greece is likely to build new terminals near Corinth and Alexandroupolis.
The latest project is worth nearly 364m euros and involves not only the Greek gas operator but also Bulgartransgaz EAD.
