If you mean .sas files that contain SAS code, they are interchangeable. .sas files are pure text files.

Be aware that you may have to adapt the code if you use different workspace servers in EG and Studio.

(say, EG uses the Local server, while Studio is delivered remotely from a centralized server).

Not necessarily. If you mean SAS datasets, these are only interchangeable if created on the same operating system and with the same "bitness" (32-bit or 64-bit SAS software). SAS UE runs on Linux. SAS Enterprise Guide works with a local or remote SAS server that could run a variety of operating systems.

The SAS code should work the same.

The SAS datasets should be interchangable if the SAS server that EG is using uses the same basic hardware. You cannot directly interchange datasets between IBM mainframes and Windows or Unix machines. 

The newest version of UE might be able to import EG project files, but I think that functionality is still only partly working.
