Latvia’s natural gas transmission and storage operator Conexus Baltic Grid signed a cooperation agreement with GRTgaz, Europe’s leading natural gas transmission system operator.
The agreement is in line with Conexus’s commitment to decarbonisation. To achieve this goal, professionals with experience in research and innovation are needed.
“The cooperation with one of the leading European natural gas operators, which includes an energy research and innovation centre, is a significant benefit for achieving Conexus’ goals, especially in the direction of a green path,” said Ivars Ščerbickis, Head of Conexus Technical development and Investments department. “I am convinced that this exchange of knowledge and experienced specialists will allow the implementation of even more innovative and efficient solutions in Latvian natural gas transmission and storage segments.”
According to him, such an agreement will help with environmentally friendly measures that will help Conexus align with the decarbonisation of the energy sector.
Cooperation is planned in projects such ash biogas and hydrogen injections into the gas pipeline network, environmental mitigation, technical support, as well as issues such as gas network, construction, maintenance, pipeline integrity, research and development.
