Prime ministers inaugurate gas interconnector between Hungary, Romania

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Romanian counterpart Emil Boc on Thursday inaugurated a 109km gas line running between their two countries. The inauguration of the gas line, which runs between the Hungarian city of Szeged and Arad, in Romania, took place in Csanádpalota, near Hungary's border with Romania. The line was built by Hungary's FGSz Földgázszállító, a unit of Hungarian oil and gas company MOL, and Romania's Transgaz. The project was supported with €17 million in European Union funding. The 47km stretch of the line in Hungary cost €33.3 million to build. FGSz CEO János Zsuga said the line would take gas from Hungary to Romania at the start, but deliveries could run in both directions later. Currently the line is operating at 55% capacity, he added. The line has an annual capacity of 3 billion cubic meters.
