SZIJJÁRTÓ: TÜRKYIE-HUNGARY GAS SUPPLIES TO START IN APRIL

 

Natural gas will start flowing from Türkyie to Hungary on April 1, so a “historic date is approaching”, the foreign minister said on Monday. Péter Szijjártó said on Facebook that the contract specifies the transfer of 275 million cubic metres of gas in the next few months, making Hungary the first non-neighbouring that Türkyie exports gas to. Türkyie has already played an important role in Hungarian energy security as a transit country, and from now on it will also be a source of energy supplies, he added. “We will tighten cooperation also in the area of nuclear energy, as a new nuclear power station being built in Türkyie will have identical technology as the new Paks plant…” he said. Experiences gained during the Turkish construction “will help us too,” he added.
Additionally, Turkish professionals will help their Hungarian partners in the technical aspects of control equipment, he said.
