Nicosia, Nov 19 – Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister Antonis Michaelides said on Monday that the Government is promptly proceeding with the preparation of documents for the tenders and competition for the supply of natural gas.

“We hope that we will be able to secure the necessary amounts of natural gas and create the terminal to store it for a period of up to five years which is essential until a land-based terminal is constructed”, he stated, adding that the construction of a land-based terminal continues to be the primary aim.

President Tassos Papadopoulos had announced earlier this month that the Government will take all necessary steps to help set up a company for the import of natural gas.
