State of compliance

Kosovo* has no gas market access, no infrastructure and no supplies of natural gas. Yet, a possible gas market is regulated by the 2016 Law on Natural Gas.

In a wider debate in Kosovo* on how to decarbonize the country’s energy sector that is heavily reliant on lignite, access to gas supplies via pipeline is not gaining traction with the Government as a viable option for now. The debate is still on-going. The country’s regulatory framework remains rudimentary.

The opportunities to provide a supply route from North Macedonia or from Albania via pipelines exist.
