Brussels and the US cooperate “for a continuous supply of gas to the EU”

“The US and the EU are working jointly for a continuous, sufficient and timely supply of natural gas to the EU from various sources around the world to avoid supply shocks, including those that could result from a further invasion of Ukraine “. This is what we read in a joint note from the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the American president, Joe Biden. “The US is already the EU’s largest supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG). We are partnering with governments and market participants to supply additional volumes of natural gas to Europe from various sources around the world,” they explain. “LNG in the short term can improve security of supply while we continue to allow the transition to net zero emissions”, reads again.

“We intend to work together, in close cooperation with EU member states, on LNG supplies for security of supply and contingency planning. We will also exchange views on the role of storage in security of supply,” said von der Leyen and Biden. “More generally, we invite all major energy producing countries to join us to ensure that the world’s energy markets are stable and well supplied. This work has already begun and we will take it forward to the US-EU Energy Council meeting on February 7 “, they conclude.
