Macedonia and Greece sign agreement for Gas Corridor

The Macedonian Energy Resources (MER) and DESFA - a natural gas transmission system operator in Greece - signed Friday in Skopje a memo of understanding for construction of a 160-km interconnecting corridor for transmission of gas from Shtip (Macedonia) to Nea Mesimvria (Greece).

The corridor provides for direct supply of liquefied natural gas from the terminal Revithoussa in Greece, as well as a possibility for connecting Macedonia's gas distribution network with the popular mega projects Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), Turkish Stream and other nearby corridors for transmitting natural gas, MER CEO Krste Miladinov said at the MoU signing ceremony.

DESFA CEO Sotiros Nikas said two groups would be set up now to work on a feasibility study, the corridor design and construction.

Greek Ambassador to Macedonia Dimitris Yannakakis said the signing of MoU was, inter alia, a result the confidence building measures being a subject of negotiations between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of both countries.
