Cooperation between Gasunie and Baltic Development ForumGroningen | press release
Gas infrastructure company Gasunie and Baltic Development Forum have entered into a strategic partnership.
The agreement was signed at the Gasunie head office in Groningen by Director of the Baltic Development Forum, Hans Brask, and the Chairman and CEO of Gasunie, Marcel Kramer.
The Baltic Development Forum (BDF) is the leading international network in the Baltic Sea Region. Policy makers, politicians, business representatives and researchers work together within BDF to develop visions for improving the competitiveness of the Baltic Sea Region. Energy supply, particularly in relation to climate change, is an important theme on the Forum’s agenda. One of BDF’s priorities is to encourage countries, companies and institutions to work together in order to improve energy efficiency and energy markets.
‘For Gasunie’, Marcel Kramer said, ‘this cooperation brings an important connection to the Baltic Sea Region. Since Gasunie joined Nord Stream and acquired the German company BEB, the countries bordering the Baltic Sea have increasingly become a ‘neighbouring’ region. Gasunie wants to open up to closer relations with these countries. This strengthening of links with the Baltic Sea countries is also important for the Northern provinces and the Netherlands as a whole.’
From the BDF’s perspective, Hans Brask stressed that: ‘BDF’s network will benefit from working with Gasunie, a European partner who is, also internationally, appreciated for its knowledge and experience of energy and gas supply and sustainability issues. Gasunie, an independent gas-infrastructure company, has an impressive track record in terms of providing efficient and profitable services to the market and society. We welcome the signing of this agreement as an expression of Baltic Sea cooperation being open and inclusive.’
