The EU is working to reduce annual fossil gas consumption by 30%, equivalent to 100 billion cubic meters (bcm), by 2030.
However, the U.S. believes that a 65-70 bcm reduction is more realistic.
The concerned U.S. departments see no near-term prospect for gas from Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Libya or Egypt to substantially help alleviate the dependence of the EU on Russian gas supplies.
Why are the above-mentioned Arab countries not able to meet EU gas needs?
What options are left for the EU in the short term to get the needed gas supply?
