Slovenia, Hungary Sign Agreement on Gas Link Project

Slovenia's energy ministry has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hungary to prepare the construction of an interconnection between the gas distribution systems of the two countries, the Slovenian government said.

The Slovenian and Hungarian energy ministries commit to supporting system operators in building a two-way gas pipeline with an annual capacity of 440 million cu m, the government said in a statement on Wednesday.

The governments of both countries will aim to conclude an agreement on the solidarity gas supply when an interconnection point between the distribution systems is established, the Slovenian government said.

According to Slovenian media reports, Hungarian operator FGSZ plan to build a pipeline linking the Hungarian town of Tornyiszentmiklos to the Slovenian border under the project. Slovenia's Plinovodi, in turn, plans to launch in 2026 a 75 km-long gas pipeline linking Kidricevo to Pince and an additional compressor unit in Kidricevo to ensure two-way capacity.
