Sections of Serbian, Hungarian gas pipeline joined
The Hungarian and Serbian sections of a pipeline connecting the countries' gas networks was welded together in Horgos, a Serbian village on the border, on Sunday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Szabolcs I Ferencz, who heads Hungarian gas transmission system operator FGSZ Földgázszállító, told MTI the interconnector project would be completed by October 1. Around 15 km of pipeline is being constructed in Hungary for the interconnector, at a cost of about HUF 20 billion, he added.
Dusan Bajatovic, the chief executive of Serbian- and Russian-owned Gastrans, said the interconnector would deliver gas arriving in Turkey to Central Europe via Bulgaria and Serbia.
