ABSTRACT
The article reports that the European Union is monitoring factors that could affect gas supplies to prevent shortage during the winter. The Gas Coordination Group met in Brussels, Belgium, inviting Russia and Ukraine to take part for the first time, given the importance of Russia's state-owned Gazprom as a supplier and the need to transit those supplies through Ukraine. The group warned that more transparent contracts are needed between Europe and its gas providers.
