Government has approved emergency plan for security of gas supply in Romania

May 26, 2022

The government approved the Emergency Plan for the security of natural gas supply in Romania, announced the spokesman of the Executive, Dan Carbunaru, on Thursday, in a press conference at Victoria Palace of Government.He added that according to the new Emergency Plan, there are three levels of crisis."An early warning one - if there is concrete, certain and reliable information that an event could occur that would significantly damage the gas supply situation and could trigger an alert or emergency level. The next level is the alert one if there is a gas supply disruption or an exceptionally high gas demand that could significantly affect the gas supply situation, but the market is still capable of handling this disruption or the respective demand without the need for measures that are not based on the functioning of the market. And the third level, the level of urgency that arises in the event of an exceptionally high demand or a significant disruption in the gas supply or other damage of the gas supply situation and all relevant market measures have already been implemented, but gas supply is insufficient to meet the demand that has remained uncovered, so we need new measures that are not based on the market, especially in order to guarantee the supply of gas to protected customers," said Carbunaru.He explained that in case of alert, early warning or emergency, the Ministry of Energy is the one taking over the management of the crisis and is responsible for the implementation of the measures provided in this plan."The regional dimension of this plan is part of the regional cooperation coordinates that the countries of the at-risk groups of which Romania is a part, namely Trans-Balkan and Ukraine, so that the specifications of the national measures on the security of gas supply are compatible with those adopted at the level of the group. (...) This plan meets the requirements in accordance with the provisions of the European Union Regulation 2017/1938, but, of course, it is also harmonized with the national legislation in force," Carbunaru also stated.
