"The past months gave us an indication of our resilience and capacity to react to diminishing gas flows from Russia," said European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson at the ITRE Committee meeting on energy prices, APA reports.

"The market reaction in January, with increased imports of LNG, has showed that Europe can count on a diversified and fully functioning gas infrastructure. This has helped the market rebalance and compensate, at least in part, for lower-than-usual pipeline flows. There is still spare capacity that can be used to receive additional gas supplies, in particular through LNG terminals," added Simson.
