Environment and Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas said on Monday that Greece can handle potential natural gas supply cut-off from Russia.
The minister stressed that Greece “faces one of the lowest risks in Europe in terms of supply sufficiency, provided that liquefied natural gas (LNG) is available.”
However, “we are systematically preparing to ensure the country’s energy sufficiency, considering even the most unfavorable scenarios.”
Skrekas made these statements while chairing an emergency meeting of the Crises Management Group on Monday to evaluate the sufficiency of natural gas reserves in Greece should Russia cut off its supply.
He reiterated that Greece has the ability to cope effectively with a potential reduction in the supply of natural gas from Russia.
