Hungary, Romania Agree to Boost Gas Interconnector Capacity
Hungary and Romania agreed to boost gas interconnector capacity at a meeting between Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó and Romanian Minister of Energy Sebastian Burduja in Bucharest on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
In a post on Facebook, Mr Szijjarto said the increased capacity would give Hungary access to more gas from fields under the Black Sea.
He said the sides had also agreed to make preparations for an interconnector between the two countries' electricity grids. Burduja said Romania would continue to allow the transit of fuel rods for Hungary's Paks nuclear power plant through the country, he added.
