The governments of Moldavia and Romania are preparing to sign a memorandum on having joint gas and electricity systems.
As Moldavian Prime Minister Chiril Gaburici said the main task is to attain “true diversification of energy supply, providing Moldavia’s energy security and laying a foundation for its integration into the European energy markets.”
The document will give a start to such important projects like Ungheni-Chisinau and Onesti-Iasi gas pipelines, as well connecting the Isaccea-Vulcăneşti-Chisinau electric main and other ones.
The program to be started this year is planned for three years. Its total volume of investments will be more than €750 bn.
In 2014, the Moldavian-Romanian Ungheni-Iasi gas main was put into operation. It is capable of supplying Moldavia with up to 1.5 bn cu m of gas annually.
