EP: Development of gas resources in Cyprus should be actively pursued

The development of the domestic conventional gas resources discovered in Cyprus should be actively pursued, a resolution adopted on Tuesday by the European Parliament in its plenary session, in Strasbourg, stresses.

The resolution further notes that new LNG capacity being developed in the Mediterranean could form the basis of an infrastructure hub.

The MEPs call for the prioritisation of gas production in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Caspian regions, as well as for interconnecting landlocked countries in Central and South-East Europe to these new capacities in order to diversify supply sources in those regions.
