EU sues Poland over restrictions in cross-border trade of natural gas
BRUSSELS, Nov 16 (Reuters) - The European Commission on Thursday said it is suing Poland over measures imposing additional costs in cross-border trade of natural gas.
"Poland's national gas storage legislation requires undertakings using storage facilities outside Poland to book firm transport capacities and prohibits such undertakings to trade those capacities in case of non-use, except for the case of a gas supply crisis," the EU Commission said in a statement.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
Gas suppliers using storage facilities in Poland are not subject to such restrictions, which risk distorting and hampering the functioning of the internal market, as well risking security of gas supply, according to the Commission.
