Energy Minister Natasa Pilides gave assurances on Wednesday that the companies active in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone are moving forward with their planning.

Addressing members of the parliamentary Committee on Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Pilides said the government is in contact with all companies, which do not expect further delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, and are proceeding with their plans according to the agreed upon timeframes.                                                    

Pilides pointed out that “we have assurances from all companies that they remain committed to the schedule we have agreed upon.”

Furthermore, she noted that the LNG import project will also be concluded on time, and that everything was going as planned regarding the EuroAsia and EuroAfrica interconnectors.

Pilides said Cyprus was also continuing consultations in order to sign over the next few weeks the articles of association with involved neighbouring countries for the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum.
