I am wondering whether the sentence given below is correct:
Security of supply is the most important priority in the gas industry.
Can 'security' be used to mean the 'process of getting something'?
***** NOT A TEACHER *****
(1) I think that you are pretty close.
(a) I would say that it means "a guaranteed process of getting something."
In other words, a source that will not fail you. So you don't have to constantly
worry: Will I be able to get my supply of X when my current supply runs out?
(2) Of course, I shall not name it, but there is a certain country that is
developing like mad (very fast), so it needs "security of supply" of many things:
oil, wood, minerals, etc. That certain country is going to another continent (no name,
of course) and offering to help those countries there build roads, schools, etc. in
exchange for a guaranteed supply of all those "goodies."
