Gas infrastructure – Regional priority projects in Central and South Eastern EuropePublished: 26 of October, 2015

There are several EU documents declaring the need for more interconnectivity of the European gas networks, especially in South East Europe. Starting with the TEN-E Regulation, which sets the framework for defining projects of regional interest, to the more policy oriented and strategic documents like the Energy Union proposal of 25 February 2015 or the Commission’s European Energy Security Strategy of 28 May 2014 that was followed by the Stress Test in October 2014 - all point out the need for more gas sources and more interconnectivity for the European gas networks. The identification of the most important projects from a European and regional point of view also has a long history.
