On 16 May, a Memorandum of Understanding on the partnership for the development of natural gas network in Eastern Europe has been signed in Zagreb, Croatia.
The partnership was established by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United States Energy Association (USEA) and several natural gas transmission system operators from eastern European countries in order to build sustainable institutional capacity for the development and use of the first joint regional gas transport planning models. It is expected that these models will be used for regional analysis of the internal gas pipeline infrastructure, interconnections and regional storage capacities needed to accelerate the process of gasification in Eastern Europe through the development of a simulation model for the mathematical forecasting of internal natural gas networks, support for regional alignment of gas transport planning methodologies, analysis of potential gas investments and the expansion of natural gas market and the assurance of the safety and reliability of the energy systems of signatory countries.
