Gazprom says its infrastructure insufficient to cover all European demand

BARCELONA. Sept 17 (Interfax) - Europe is currently requesting more gas than Gazprom can supply with available infrastructure, Elena Burmistrova, head of Gazprom Export LLC, said at the Gastech conference.

"In the day-to-day, I see new requests and new demand for the coming 10 years - and in volumes far exceeding those that we are able to ship with existing infrastructure," she said, expressing surprise that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has become the focus of so much politics.
