The Ungheni-Chisinau gas pipeline is almost complete

The construction of the natural gas pipeline connecting the existing Moldova-Romania gas interconnection from Ungheni to Chisinau is almost complete.

The Minister of Economy and infrastructure Sergiu Răilean visited the construction site (pictured above) welcoming its progress and, at the same time, acknowledging the difficulties resulting from the restrictions imposed by the state of emergency.

“It is in our best interest to ensure the energy security of the country, but also of the region by diversifying the gas supply routes,” said Minister Răilean. “Therefore, by interconnecting with the transport networks in Romania and integrating Moldova in the European energy system, we will be able to materialise this goal. We closely monitor the progress of this strategic project in order to ensure its completion in the established terms and to benefit from the pipeline by the end of the current year.”

Out of the 120 kilometres of the linear section, 106 have already been completed and the gas transmission company Vestmoldtransgaz, which will monitor the gas system, is almost ready for commissioning.
