The European Commission has approved an increase in gas supplies from Russia to Poland
The European Commission has approved an increase in gas supplies from Russia to Poland

EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger welcomed the Russian-Polish intergovernmental agreement on increasing the volume of natural gas pipeline "Yamal-Europe". Earlier, some media wrote that the European Commission may apply to Poland to the European Court for a deal between Warsaw and Moscow over Russian gas supplies to Poland, since the document alleged to be violating EU antitrust laws.

Meanwhile, Ettinger said he was satisfied with "good cooperation with Polish and Russian authorities." If agreement is not consistent with EU legislation, the Commission could apply for Poland in the European Court of Justice for refusing to bring it into line with European standards, according to RIA Novosti.

"We were able to ensure that the intergovernmental agreement between Russia and Poland have been brought into line with EU legislation. This means in particular that Gaz-System as a pipeline operator will be responsible for contracting for supplies on a nondiscriminatory basis, and that Poland is able to re-export of Russian gas raised in Poland, "- says the statement Ettinger, rasprostraennom his press service.

It is worth noting that earlier on Thursday the European Commission launched a test document and the final decision on this issue was going to be taken within 48 hours passed, "Interfax, citing an official representative of the European Commission Marlene Holzner.

According to her, until the completion of this test, no comment from the EU will not follow. It only confirmed that the Polish Government had informed the General Directorate of the European Energy signed last week by Russia and Poland the document.

"I can also confirm that we have raised all the documentation that will verify its compliance with EU legislation", - said Holzner at a briefing in Brussels.


Under the agreement signed between Poland and Russia on October 29, in 2010 Gazprom will supply to Poland 9.7 billion cubic meters of gas in 2011 - 10.5 billion cubic meters in 2012-2037 years - 11 billion cubic meters.

The former protocol provides an annual supply of up to 2014 to 8 billion cubic meters, and from 2015 - to 9 billion cubic meters of gas. However, the Commission questioned under this contract EU competition law. Subject of concern in Brussels was a company EuRoPol Gaz, which is owned 48% by Gazprom and the same amount - PGNiG and operates the Polish section of the pipeline.
