Technical Subgroup on Transit holds its second meeting

On 24 October 2018 the Energy Charter Secretariat held the second meeting of the Technical Subgroup on Transit.  The Subgroup was created early this year to serve as a dialogue platform and to identify the direction for the work of the Secretariat in the area of transit of energy resources. 

The second meeting gathered over 20 Subgroup members consisting of both delegates of Contracting Parties and representatives of the energy industry. The focus of the meeting was on the work carried out by the Transit Unit of the Secretariat and the Legal Advisory Task Force on the third edition of the Model Agreements for Cross-Border Pipelines.  A detailed presentation delivered by a research fellow commissioned by the Secretariat on the topic was followed by a an engaging discussion among the Members. The work on the Model Agreements will be finalized next year.  

Other discussions included results of processing of the second transit questionnaires and identification of priority areas for the Subgroup for year 2019.
