The risk assessment required by the EU Regulation on gas security of supply (994/2010) (‘the Regulation’) and under Article 9 of the regulation.



This risk assessment on gas security of supply was submitted to the EU Commission on 3 June 2014 in line with the requirements of EU Regulation 994/2010.

The regulation’s aim is to demonstrate that all necessary measures are being taken to ensure gas infrastructure adequacy across EU Member States and that safeguards are in place to allow for exceptional climactic conditions or disruptions to supply.
