The Serbian Government announced that it has adopted a decision on the ban of all exports of natural gas until the end of October in order to ensure stable supply on the domestic market.

The statement from the Government said that the decision was made in order to prevent the threat of a critical shortage of natural gas caused by a disruption in the global energy market.

As a result of an ongoing energy crisis, Serbian authorities decided to postpone the start of this year’s heating season from 15 October to 1 November.

Serbia is 100 % reliant on Russian natural gas supply, but with the completion of the construction of gas interconnection with Bulgaria, which is expected in September 2023, the country could import natural gas from the Caspian region, as well as through several liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals in the Mediterranean.
