Gas pipeline web sought to cut Russia’s grip on EU supplies

Fifteen European nations endorsed a plan to create a web of gas pipelines around Southeastern Europe in order to cut dependence on Russian gas, Bloomberg reports. Most of the countries that agreed to the plan are from the former Soviet bloc. Focal points of the plan include the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, which will transport Caspian Sea gas to Europe, and a network of inter-connectors, including ones that would link Bulgaria to Greece and Serbia. Officials also plan to speed up the construction of a liquified natural gas terminal in Croatia.
