Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have problems the second paragraph (see my re-worked version in the edited draft in diary). On one hand, the Green Paper lists the "Southern Gas Corridor" as a prority project, and even if needed, do you think new (or bi-directionalised?) East-West gas connections should be such? On the other hand, do you think there is a real need here -- that is, aren't gas reserves sufficient even when Ukraine and Russland have a longer spat?

New pipelines from West to East can be argued for even if we move away from gas - there will be a minimum level of consumption (for households and industry, even if not for power generation) that requires security of supply.

Your addition about storage is useful.
