EU states to share daily reports on gas flow Add to ...

European Union countries should give the European Commission powers to co-ordinate gas flows in the 27-member bloc in the event of a gas crisis, according to a draft Commission report. The proposal is the EU's main policy response to the supply disruption that occurred in January following a pricing dispute between Russia and transit country Ukraine. Tension between Moscow and Kiev has mounted in recent weeks and many energy experts forecast a repeat in coming months. The report said EU states would have to provide the Commission with daily updates of supply and demand forecasts for the three days following a crisis, with updates on withdrawals from stocks and the impact on their economies and power sectors.
