Arad–Szeged gas pipeline inaugurated

Oct 20, 2010 12:00 AM

Hungarian company FGSZ and Romania’s Transgaz have inaugurated the Arad–Szeged pipeline, which connects the gas transmission systems of the two neighbouring European countries.
The 109 km pipeline received EUR 17 mm from the European Union as part of the European Energy Economic Recovery Programme budget.

Chairman of FGSZ’ parent company MOL Group, Zsolt Hernádi, said, “The opened pipeline section will be followed by a number of similar initiatives, since the Croatian–Hungarian interconnection pipeline is under implementation, the feasibility of a Hungarian–Slovakian interconnection is under assessment, and the feasibility study for the Hungarian–Slovenian interconnection is being prepared."
"This inauguration is a major first step that paves the way for a uniform regional gas market.”

FGSZ and Slovakia’s Eurostream have re-launched the binding phase of the Open Season process for the planned interconnection between the Slovak and Hungarian gas transmission systems. The second round of the binding phase of the Open Season is the follow-up to the process started in the first half of 2010, when market interest did not meet Hungarian regulatory requirements and FGSZ declared the first binding phase as unsuccessful.
The gas pipeline is expected to be put into operation at the beginning of 2014.
