Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his country is looking at expanding energy infrastructure to help Europe over the “medium term” to transition away from Russian oil and gas.

Trudeau, speaking to reporters in Elmau, Germany at the end of a Group of Seven summit, said there are opportunities to build facilities that could export liquefied natural gas to the continent, without giving specifics. The infrastructure could then be used for hydrogen exporting in the future, he said, keeping it consistent with Canada’s longer term climate goals.
