Sofia. The Pari Daily has announced Romania's Transgaz Medias and Bulgaria's Bulgargaz have started negotiations on the topic of unifying their gas distribution networks.
The project is part of the initiative of Hungary's MOL for connecting the gas distribution networks in the region.
Connecting the gas distribution systems of the two countries will require building an 8-km gas pipeline between Rousse and Giurgiu. Quantities transported are expected to reach 1.5 billion cu m per year, or 9% of Romania's national consumption.
