“We need more liquefied natural gas, in the short term and temporarily, and we want to deliver it to our own terminals in Germany. On the other hand, we must accelerate the transition from conventional natural gas to green hydrogen”, he said in Qatar. on the eve of their visit to the United Arab Emirates, which will be followed by a trip to the United Arab Emirates.
