Goodbye BRUA 2?

Romanian and Hungarian natural gas transport system operators Transgaz and FGSZ have reached this conclusion after an open tender for allocating the additional transport capacity, Profit.ro reported.

Such tenders, by which bidders secure transfer capacities, are organized ahead of any gas transport projects to assess its feasibility.

The tender for the enlargement of the Romania-Hungary interconnector, to serve BRUA 2 route supposed to link the Black Sea offshore projects with Central Europe, was launched in 2017.

The results reflect the uncertainties related to Romania's offshore gas projects in the Black Sea, delayed due to regulatory changes.

The general manager of Transgaz, Ion Sterian, recently gave assurances that the works at the Romanian section of BRUA phase 1, being delayed, will be completed in August this year.
