EU energy chief: ‘Serious disruption’ of EU gas supply from Russia likely

An ICYMI on EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson’s remarks after a meeting of energy ministers.

  • “Since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we have known that a very serious disruption is possible, and now it seems likely”

I don’t think that’s a surprise to anyone. Russia has already cut or reduced supplies to 12 of the 27 EU member states.

Simson continues:

  • The European Commission will present a plan next month for EU countries to coordinate their preparations for new gas shocks
  • the plan will identify measures to reduce gas demand
  • identify critical sectors where reduced gas demand could disrupt supply chains

This will have negative consequences for the EU economy. Let’s see what they can find to counter the impact.
