Slovakia expects the Nord Stream 2 to not affect the usage of existing infrastructure

Bratislava, June 7 - Neftegaz.RU. Slovak Economy Minister Richard Sulík and Foreign Affairs Minister Ivan Korčok met with Gazprom´s CEO Alexey Miller at the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg.
Their discussion touched upon the mutual cooperation and building of the 1,230 km Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, The Slovak Spectator reported.

I.Korčok wrote in his status on social networks:
  • After conversing with the Head of Gazprom, it is clear that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is no longer a question of 'whether' but that its construction will soon be completed and the project will be put into operation
  • Of course, we are also following the diplomatic negotiations between the United States and Germany
In this context, Korčok and Sulík emphasized the expectation that the Nord Stream 2 will not affect the contractual obligations in the supply of gas to Slovakia, and that transit using the existing infrastructure will also be secured.

The project will allow Russian gas to flow directly to Germany, bypassing Ukraine, Poland and also Slovakia.
R.Sulík said as cited by TASR:
  • Miller explained in detail that the reasons for building the Nord Stream 2 is as an alternative to Yamal Europa 1 and Yamal Europa 2, which run through Poland
  • This is confirmed by the fact that Russia has concluded a new gas transit agreement with Ukraine by 2024
The positive news for Slovakia is the assurance of Gazprom that it plans to continue transiting Russian gas through Ukraine, noted the Economy Ministry.
Miller assured that cooperation with Slovakia will continue at the set level and added that Slovakia has a firm place in Gazprom’s strategic plans.

I.Korčok wrote in his status on social networks:
  • Gazprom is still interested in continuing cooperation with Slovakia
