Europe is frantically looking for a replacement for Russian gas. In this regard, one country expressed its readiness to become the very alternative in the field of gas supply for many countries, Trend reports citing Haber7.
"Azerbaijan, our brotherly country, is preparing to become an alternative for Switzerland in the context of the energy crisis. According to the statement of the Swiss Association of the gas industry, if the supply of Russian gas to Europe is stopped due to the conflict in Ukraine, Switzerland will also have to reduce its consumption. In the event of an energy crisis, Switzerland hopes to receive Azerbaijani gas.
Azerbaijan is preparing to become an alternative in the field of gas supply for many countries against the backdrop of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Thomas Hegglin of the Swiss Gas Industry Association recently said that in the event of disruptions in Russian gas supplies to Europe, Switzerland would also be forced to cut its consumption. And one of the most important alternatives for Switzerland is Azerbaijani gas.Hegglin, focusing on a possible gas supply crisis, continued: "We need to be prepared for this. The shortage of Russian gas supplies cannot be fully compensated for in Europe, at least in the short term, and without reducing consumption. However, even in this scenario, Switzerland will still have an advantage. Because Switzerland will be able to continue to receive gas from Azerbaijan," the Turkish news agency writes.
