Coherent Resilience 2019 (CORE 19) was a Tabletop Exercise (TTX) on the Baltic States and hybrid threats related to regional gas supplies and critical energy infrastructure protection. The TTX took place 14-16 May 2019 in Vilnius, Lithuania. The goal of the exercise was to support the national authorities and gas transmission system operators (TSO) of the Baltic States in ensuring supply of gas to consumers and mitigating the disruption over the Baltic region. This three-day regional, multilateral, interagency, and public-private sector event was divided into three phases including an academic seminar, a two-day TTX, and a distinguished visitors’ day that included after-action briefings. This report focuses largely on syndicate responses to the exercise scenario vignettes and injects to include capturing areas of improvement, best practices, and recommendations. The event brought together 108 participants from 14 NATO and European Union countries, who came from 35 different organisations representing gas supply and energy security stakeholders.
