Greek Prime Minister in favor of phasing out Russian gas

At the NATO summit, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke in favor of phasing out Russian natural gas.

According to the Athens Macedonian News Agency, the head of the Greek government also proposed that “all NATO member states commit themselves to” sanctions against the Russian Federation adopted by the European Union.

AMNA reports that the Minister of Environment and Energy of Greece, Kostas Skrekas, held a meeting of the anti-crisis group on Friday, where various scenarios for the country’s energy supply were considered.

The Minister assured that today all natural gas supplies to Greece are going smoothly. If necessary, it is possible to increase them through the TAP (Trans-Adriatic Gas Pipeline) with Azerbaijani gas. He said that the capacity of the liquefied natural gas terminal near the Greek capital is at a high level, literally on Thursday a ship arrived there with 108,000 cubic meters of fuel.

Kostas Skrekas reported that there are lignite reserves for more than 30 days for the operation of TPPs operating on brown coal, and water reserves for the operation of HPPs are satisfactory. There are 5 natural gas-fired power plants in reserve with the option to switch to diesel fuel as an alternative. According to the minister, Greece meets about 40% of its needs in natural gas and about 20-25% in oil through supplies from the Russian Federation, writes Greek Reporter.
