The High Level Group for Central and South-Eastern Europe discussed the possibilities for the diversification of sources in Central and Eastern Europe – Perspectives of Producers.

This was also a good opportunity to review interventions from new suppliers for the region (Exxon, OMV – Petrom, SOCAR, Cheniere and others), the potential of their sources to contribute to the diversification and security objectives of supply for the region, potential difficulties for delivering gas to the CEE/SEE markets (legal, regulatory, technical and financial framework).

Although Kosovo is not part of the gas network, opportunities are being explored to connect Kosovo through the network of a neighboring country where the new gas network will go through.
