Romania not to export natural gas to Moldova

February 5, 2014

Romania will not start exporting gas until it has entirely satisfied its internal needs, Romania’s Minister of Energy Constantin Nita said in an interview released by the state agency AGERPRES on February 4, Itar-Tass has reported.

“I want to reassure everybody who thinks we’ll be exporting gas just like that. First we should satisfy our own demand for gas, as we cannot start exporting it thereby leaving Romanian customers and industrial plants without fuel,” the minister said.

Moldova’s annual gas needs are 1.3 billion cubic meters of gas entirely imported from Russia.
