The government in the Republic of Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina has refused to allow the implementation of a project to connect Bosnia and Herzegovina with the Croatian natural gas network.
A source close to the government in Banja Luka confirmed for the HINA news agency that the aim of the project was to secure more sources of delivery in order to reduce dependence on the only gas pipeline coming from Serbia that serves exclusively for distribution of gas from Russian suppliers.
The branch of the future Ionian-Adriatic pipeline was supposed to open the Bosnia and Herzegovina gas market access to sources such as the LNG terminal on the island of Krk. The project was strongly supported by the energy community, which consists of 11 EU member states and five potential member states, while the European Bank for reconstruction and development demonstrated readiness to finance its implementation.
