Transgaz commits to export 1.75 bln m³ of gas to Hungary annually
The European Commission on Friday made legally binding the commitments offered by Romaniaʼs Transgaz to export gas to Hungary, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Transgaz committed to making minimum export capacities of 1.75 billion cubic meters of gas a year at the interconnection point between Romanian and Hungary, the EC said.
The capacity is equivalent to around one-sixth of Hungaryʼs annual gas consumption, the EC noted.
The EC launched a probe of Transgaz in 2017 to determine whether the state-owned gas transmission system operator was infringing EU antitrust rules by restricting exports of gas.
