Hungary to be the 1st customer to acquire gas via Turkish Stream

06 October 2017 , 16:00Neftegaz.RU1262

Hungary plans to acquire Russian gas through the 2nd Turkish Stream pipeline as of 2019, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on October 5, 2017.


The 1st request for gas has come from a European country following the approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report of the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline project, which will carry Russian gas through the Black Sea and reach Europe through Turkey, by the Environment and Urbanization Ministry last week.


Speaking to the Rossiya 24, Szijjarto said Hungary was interested in the Turkish Stream, which has 2 pipelines, indicating that 1 of the pipelines could serve Turkey's domestic consumption while the 2nd should bring the gas to Central Europe and west of the Balkans.


He also said that his country has signed roadmap agreements with Gazprom that require the complete development of Hungary's infrastructure by 2019 for gas purchases via the Turkish Stream.


Szjjart said that following his meeting with Russian Energy Minister Alexandr Novak, it became clearer that Russia is determined to complete the project by 2019.
