French government still not in favor of MidCat gas pipeline with Spain – official

Author of the article:



PARIS — The French government’s position on MidCat gas pipeline project between France and Spain has not changed, an official of the French energy ministry told journalists on Thursday in a briefing ahead of a European Union meeting.

Building the pipeline would require too heavy construction works which would mean it would be no solution to the current gas stretch in Europe, the official said, adding that the pipeline would also not contribute to realizing the continent’s green energy transition.
