The European Union will increase gas purchases from Azerbaijan

Mar 3, 2024

The European Union has agreed with Azerbaijan to increase gas supplies to its member states to reduce dependence on Russia.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine regarding the press service of the European Commission.

European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson said that the EU plans to increase gas purchases from Azerbaijan.

"We have reached several agreements. Among them: an increase in gas exports from Azerbaijan to Europe to 20 billion cubic meters by 2027, as well as the need to increase the capacity of the existing gas transportation infrastructure," Simson said.

She added that Russia has shown itself to be an unreliable partner in gas supplies to Europe.

At the same time, it is noted that in 2023, Azerbaijan supplied almost 12 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe.
