Liquefied natural gas
Croatian politicians have hailed an EU decision to support the construction of a liquefied natural gas, LNG, terminal on the Croatian island of Krk, which will eventually be connected with the LNG terminal on the Baltic in Poland.
Europe could import African gas via Spain to reduce dependency on Russian resources, a Spanish expert believes.
"Spain's gas transportation system is well-developed. We could be a transit country for supplies to other European countries," Marta Margarit, spokesperson for the Association of Spanish Gas Companies, was quoted as saying by German radio Deutschlandfunk.

Major firms, including Qatar Petroleum and Gazprom, appear to be interested in creating the infrastructure to supply liquefied natural gas to ships in Piraeus. Meanwhile, the global natural gas industry is saying that natural gas as a fuel for transport could be made available at a price of just 50 percent of that paid for gasoline and 70 percent that for diesel.
Turkey looks at Norway as a potential supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG), as its Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said while on a visit to Oslo.
At a press meeting with his Norwegian counterpart Tord Lien, Yildiz announced his country had requested to buy up to 6 B cubic meters of gas, according to The World Bulletin.
