Gas leak shouldn't affect Europe's energy resilience - Blinken

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated on Tuesday that the gas leak on Nord Stream 2 pipeline shouldn't have a significant impact on Europe's energy resilience, adding that it won't be in "anyone's interest" if the inquiry finds that the gas leaks were caused by an attack.

Speaking at the Department of State briefing, Blinken revealed ensuring energy security to Europe on a "short-term and long-term basis" remains Washington's top priority in partnership with its allies. "We are working on implementing an oil price cap to keep the Russian oil flowing but at a steep discount," the secretary added.

Blinken also underlined that the country's oil production rose by 500,000 barrels per day this year, while liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports have surged 20% in comparison to the figure the year before, "becoming the largest supplier of LNG to the European Union and the United Kingdom."
