Slovakia is ready for the possible gas crisis, announced Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini at the press conference on Monday. Slovakia is very well prepared for the possible swigs in gas supplies that may occur amid the escalating tension between Russia and Ukraine. “The network of gas supplies is diversified and we can import gas also from other parts of Europe, for example the Czech Republic or Austria. The Slovak Republic is ready to fully cover gas supplies to all consumers in case gas supplies from Russia via Ukraine are halted,“ Prime Minister said. The chairman of the gas utility Slovensky Plynarensky Priemysel (SPP) Jan Valko confirmed that the largest gas company is ready to provide gas supplies also in case of the gas crisis. “We serve around 1.3 million customers and we have adopted significant measures. It cost something, but we fully respect the state’s strategic interest. If any problems arise, we are ready to address them together with our colleagues from other gas companies. We may responsibly say that we can guarantee smooth gas supplies over a 100-day period,“ Valko stated. In case of the gas crisis, Slovakia can supply gas to Ukraine via the gas pipeline Vojany- Uzhgorod.
