Romania may be technically able to export natural gas through a pipeline to neighboring Hungary starting from the end of 2015, Ziarul Financiar reported, citing unidentified officials at gas grid operator Transgaz SA.
The technical conditions for gas exports through the pipeline running between Arad in western Romania and Szeged in southeastern Hungary will be created at the end of 2015, Ziarul Financiar said.
Romania’s gas production covers about 80 percent of the country’s consumption and Transgaz has not received any requests for exports so far, according to the newspaper.
