If it becomes clear that gas supplies have met with difficulties in
the next few months, the EC is much more prepared for such a possibility
right now than it was in the past, she said.

There was a crisis in this area in 2009, but since then the EC has
changed its legal arsenal, the chief provision of which lies in each
European Union country being required to position itself so that its
enterprises have at least 30 days worth of gas reserves in case of
emergency, she said.

During the previous gas crisis, Western Europe did not possess the
needed number of gas pipelines to urgently deliver gas to a number of
countries; for example, Bulgaria. Today Western Europe has these
pipelines and is in a much better position to confront difficulties on
the gas market, Holzner said.
