Ribera says that the first project of the BarMar gas pipeline will be in December
The third vice-president and minister for the Energy Transition, Teresa Ribera, defends that the gas pipeline project between Barcelona and Marseille (BarMar), which in the future will be able to transport hydrogen, is a “solid” idea agreed upon by France, Spain and Portugal “with a very Europeanist vision” and announces that in December there will already be ain the first realization of the project. In addition, he assures that the agreement anticipates “a strategic decision on the hydrogen networks, which swill be a reality in fifteen years’ time.
In an interview in The vanguardRibera explains that “the pact is solid” and that the agreement between France, Spain and Portugal has emerged “after a very difficult period during which the Government of Spain believed that it was very important to respond to the request for solidarity from Germany and other European countries in the aftermath of the war in Ukraine”. “We set as a condition that the new interconnection was not designed exclusively for the transport of methane gas, a project that would have difficult viability in the medium term”, reveals the minister.
For the second stage of the infrastructure design and construction project, Ribera explains that they have already contacted “transporters, industry and regulators in order to have a first project ready at the beginning of December” and present it to the European Commission.
The underwater gas pipeline project, which would have a term of execution of between four and five years, it is not yet known how much it will cost: “Let’s wait for the technical studies,” the minister replies when asked about it. The minister acknowledges that Portugal’s contribution to the BarMar idea has been “very valuable” and that have proposed to make hydrogen. It also announces that the project for a gas pipeline between Barcelona and Livorno are ruled out for the moment because “it doesn’t make much sense to do another underwater conduit. The connection with Marseille is shorter and cheaper”.
Regarding cheaper gas, the minister explains that gas reserves “are full in Europe” and since it has not yet started to get cold, the demand has dropped because the heating has not yet been turned on, but he warns that “there may be spikes and increases prices in the coming months.
