Serbian Energy Minister not worried about Russian gas supplies to Serbia

There is no danger for Serbia if Russia halts gas supplies through Ukraine, because of the contract it has with Gazprom, that includes «3 points for the delivery of gas to Serbia», Energy Minister Aleksandar Antic said on March 6, 2018.


«I would not go for fatalistic scenarios, it's about relations between Gazprom and the Ukrainian transit company, and it's up to them to solve it», Antic told reporters at the Kopaonik Business Forum.


He said that Serbia has a contract with Gazprom, «and we should not be interested in the route Gazprom will use to supply Serbia with gas.»


«This is a binding contract, everyone needs to fulfill their obligations. During the last visit of President Vucic to Russia and his meeting with President Putin, we inserted this into the new contract: a new delivery point at the Serbian-Hungarian border. Therefore with Gazprom there are now 3 delivery points for Serbia, one is Banatski Dvor, the other is via Bereg on the Ukrainian-Hungarian border, and the 3rd is the Serbian-Hungarian border»,  the minister said.


Antic pointed out that Gazprom can supply Serbia with gas from Hungarian storage facilities, from central European facilities such as Baumgarten, «or from other interconnections.»
