The European Commission should use its mandate as a guardian of the interests of the European consumers and insist on the application of the Third Energy Package to the Nord Stream 2 project, national joint-stock company Naftogaz Ukrainy has said.

“The uniform application of the Third Energy Package and preserving the existing gas delivery routes provides an optimal solution for the European gas consumers based on transparency and free market principles,” Naftogaz CEO Andriy Kobolev said.

Naftogaz said that Naftogaz is not requesting any concessions or exemptions from the European rules and strives to operate in the level playing field. Gazprom, on the contrary, rejects the application of the standard European rules to its Nord Stream 2 project and relies heavily on numerous carve outs from the Third Energy Package in its activities in Europe.
