The UK is examining its infrastructure to ensure gas flows efficiently with Europe, a UK government spokesperson told Trend.
“To reduce global reliance on Russian fossil fuels, the UK is:
Committing to phase out the use of Russian oil and coal by the end of 2022, and end imports of Russian liquefied natural gas as soon as possible thereafter. The US has made similar commitment
Building international support to reduce Russian energy revenues. Internationally coordinated action, for example, through the G7 and International Energy Agency is key to support stable markets and to help secure the critical minerals we all need to successfully move to clean energy
Building on our important partnerships with non-Russian OPEC countries, and the US, to promote market stability through the availability of alternative supplies of oil and gas
Hosting the first UK-Qatar Strategic Energy Dialogue in May to further deepen our existing energy collaboration
Working closely with the US on gas, particularly on how we can leverage UK LNG infrastructure to support European supply
Driving our work with European partners for more efficient trading across our electricity interconnectors, lowering costs for UK and EU consumers
Providing a key EU entry point for non-Russian supplies of gas. We are examining our infrastructure to ensure gas flows efficiently between the UK, Europe and the global market through our interconnectors and LNG terminals and promote gas infrastructure to be hydrogen-ready,” said the spokesperson.
