An active involvement of an international business players both from East and West is essential to guarantee the diversity and success for large scale multinational energy projects. Such a dialogue will also serve as a good basis  of providing sound arguments on  initiatives of key importance such as Nord Stream 2 development which is currently being interpreted differently and raises a lot of emotional discussions.

As indicated by Mr. Maris Sproga, the developer of Baltic Energy Alliance,  for a  commodity of strategic importance as gas is, it is crucial to evaluate all the pros and cons within an independent center of excellency involving all the relevant stakeholders and to provide balanced arguments for the decision makers while avoiding being populistic. Also the Nord Stream 2 consortium itself has to be a lot more active when dealing with different opionions to clarify the concerns raised over the project in a transparent manner. The proper stakeholder relations is of key importance for a project of this scale and can be considered as one of the weakest points so far.

As informed earlier, the Baltic Energy Alliance as a potential center for excellence in gas business within the Baltic Sea Region, is currently being developed. The idea beyond it is to compensate the lack of information on main gas business issues – i.e new infrastructure projects,  security of supply and  diversity.
