ITGI DEPA CEO says weather-related Greek gas shortage shows need for alternatives

Gas deliveries to Greece have been affected during significant periods in the last month, a worrying situation as temperatures drop. In what recalls the 2009 events, gas supplies from Russia have seen a sharp drop which has affected several European countries as acknowledged this week by the European Commission.

Commenting on the disruptions, Harry Sachinis, Chairman of IGI Poseidon and Chairman and CEO of DEPA, the Public Gas Corporation of Greece said:

“The current shortages on gas deliveries are not happening for the first time. We are now facing disruptions in deliveries because of the weather conditions and the increase of demand in neighbouring countries.”
