Hungary-Slovakia gas interconnector to be delayed
Launching the commercial operation of an interconnector between the gas networks of Hungary and Slovakia could be delayed due to technical problems and a certification holdup on the Hungarian side, Slovak gas transit company Eustream reported on Friday.
According to Eustream, Magyar Gáz Tranzit, which is its partner in the interconnector project, informed about problems at a compressor station, adding that the certification of Magyar Gaz Tranzit had been delayed. Eustream expects the commercial operation of the interconnector, which is scheduled for early February next year, to be delayed. Eustream ensured that the Slovak part of the interconnector "remains technically fully prepared to start commercial operation".
