Rule 117

 Subject:  Memorandum on construction of a second branch of the Yamal-Europe pipeline
 Answer in writing 

On 5 April the CEO of Gazprom and the Managing Director of the EuRoPol Gaz joint venture signed a memorandum of understanding in Saint Petersburg on the construction of a second branch of the Yamal-Europe pipeline

This document outlines the implementation of the so-called ‘Yamal-Europe II’ project, running through Poland to Slovakia and Hungary, which would have a capacity of no less than 15 billion cubic metres of gas per year.

The Russians cite the 1993 agreement setting out the framework for construction of the Yamal gas pipeline, which transports gas from Russia through Poland to Germany. According to the plans, Yamal-Europe II would have a very different shape, running from Belarus through Poland to Slovakia.

Has this project recently been presented to the Energy Commissioner?

Does the Commission believe it fulfils the requirements of diversifying gas supplies to the Member States?

Has the Commission exchanged opinions with Poland on this matter?

Is the Commission permitting an exemption for this project from the independent operator requirements under the third energy package?

Does the citing of the 1993 agreement on the implementation of the Yamal pipeline have any legal significance as regards the application of the third energy package to the project, if it is to be carried out?
