Hungary gas supply uninterrupted - MEKH
The Hungarian Energy and Public Utilities Regulatory Office (MEKH) said it is closely following developments related to gas deliveries to Europe and that gas deliveries to Hungary are continuing without interruption, in a statement issued on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
"Supply to Hungary continues without interruption. Gas is arriving - from several directions - in line with the usual schedule," MEKH said.
The office noted that Hungary can import gas from Slovakia, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, and Ukraine.
"The security of domestic gas supply is ensured in full by long-term commercial contracts," MEKH said.
"In addition to this continuous supply, gas in reserves, gas volume extracted in Hungary, gas from LNG delivered via Croatia, and gas deliveries from the west are also available," it added.
MEKH noted that Hungary's gas reserves are in the process of being replenished. The reserves now contain 1.24 billion cubic meters of gas, or 19.6% of capacity.
