The additional output will aid the nation’s transition away from coal-fired power.
Beginning on December 1, Serbia will import 2 million cubic metres more of gas from Russia each day, according to Dusan Bajatovic, the head of the nation’s energy company, Srbijagas.
Currently, Russia is Serbia’s sole natural gas supplier. Belgrade plans to reserve an additional 700 million cubic metres of gas for the winter after already securing 2.2 billion cubic metres of gas annually or 62% of the nation’s demand.
As the nation transitions away from outdated coal-fired power plants, Vojislav Vuletic, the head of the Gas Association of Serbia, stated earlier this month that at the current consumption rate, the nation would require roughly 4 billion cubic metres annually. Belgrade, Nis, and Novi Sad are among the cities where the nation’s state-owned electric utility EBS plans to build new gas-fired stations.
Serbia, which receives supplies from Russia via the TurkStream pipeline, has likewise backed Moscow’s proposal to erect a natural gas distribution hub in Türkiye, claiming that it would aid Belgrade in satisfying its rising energy demand.
