Existing Infrastructure level
The EU gas system is resilient to a disruption of all pipelines from Algeria during a 2-week cold spell. No country is facing a risk of demand curtailment apart from the countries being affected for the climatic stress without disruption route case. Figure 3.99 shows the evolution of the Existing infrastructure level.
Regarding the countries with direct interconnection with Algeria supply, Italy surpasses a 15 % remaining flexibility in all scenarios apart from Gas Before Coal (9 %), which is the scenario with the highest demand. The Iberian Peninsula, Portugal, and Spain surpasses a 15 % remaining flexibility in all scenarios and years.
