Romania wants to increase its natural gas storage capacity from 3 billion cubic meters to 4 billion cubic meters by 2025 under a project financed from the European Union's funds, minister of energy Virgil Popescu announced, Romaniahournal.ro reported, citing local media.
He participated in the commissioning of a natural gas dehydration unit at the Bilciuresti storage facility.
The unit commissioned on Tuesday, worth EUR 7.6 million (USD 8.62 million), contributes to increasing the extraction capacity at the Bilciuresti storage facility, which is the largest natural gas facility in Romania.
"As we set out in the government program, the storage capacity will increase and will ensure both the country's energy security and its energy independence," the minister said, according to Economica.net.
