US wants more gas from Azerbaijan

April 3, 2014

The United States and the EU have a lot of work to do in order to diversify their energy supplies, and getting more gas from Azerbaijan is today's agenda, US Secretary of State John Kerry said at the U.S.-EU Energy Council Meeting in Brussels on April 2, Trend has reported.

"Our agenda today, or at least part of it, is going to be to look at how do we get more natural gas through what folks call the Southern corridor, from Azerbaijan to Turkey and on to Europe," said Kerry, whose remarks are posted at the US State Department website.

He added that there are also other opportunities, including LNG terminals planned across Europe, and pipelines that can get gas to customers. "But we, all of us, have to make certain that we are not dependent on one single source of energy," Kerry added.
