If any more proof was needed for the FSRU mania that has gripped Europe, it was on display in Greece on Tuesday.

Prime ministers or state presidents from four Balkan countries — Serbia, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Greece — travelled to the remote city of Alexandroupolis to mark the start of construction of a GasLog-backed terminal that will begin operations in 20 months.

They were joined by senior European Union policymaker Charles Michel, who heads the European Council — the powerful EU organ in which the bloc’s national governments are represented.
