Transmed Gas Pipeline Can Increase Supply to Europe - Sonatrach

The trans-Mediterranean natural gas pipeline that links Algeria and Italy has spare capacity that can be used to increase supply to Europe, the CEO of the Algerian state-energy group Sonatrach, Toufik Hakkar, said on Sunday.

Hakkar, cited by state-run news agency APS, was commenting on Western European fears of gas supply disruptions caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Sonatrach will remain a "reliable supplier" of natural gas to Europe and is ready to support its partners in the continent in case of a "difficult situation", he said, according to APS.

Algeria sends gas to Europe through pipelines across the Mediterranean to Italy and Spain, and on LNG tanker vessels.
