Resilience of the Gas System (Communication)

The European Commission used a "stress test" to examine the resilience of the European gas system and recommends measures which will have a positive impact on security of the gas supply in Europe. In particular, the Member States will cooperate to a greater extent on ensuring security of the gas supply.


The Commission rightly reminds Member States that national measures to safeguard security of the gas supply must not have a negative impact on the internal market and that infrastructure projects of importance to security of supply must be put into operation on time. Increased cooperation between the Member States may alleviate the social consequences for the public in the hardest-hit countries.
