Gov't declares smooth preparations for South Stream stretch in Hungary

The government has declared "of extraordinary importance" investments and administrative matters related to the section of the South Stream gas pipeline to pass through Hungary, a decree published in the latest issue of the official gazette Magyar Közlöny shows.

The declaration will simplify and accelerate preparations for the construction of the 229km stretch of the pipeline in Hungary, the National Development Ministry said earlier. The declaration followed a meeting in Budapest in the middle of October between Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and the top executives of Russian oil and gas giant Gazprom.
The South Stream pipeline will run from Russia under the Black Sea to Bulgaria, bypassing Ukraine, whose rows with Moscow have interrupted gas deliveries to Europe several times in recent years.
