Brua gas pipelines will connect Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Austria
The Connecting Europe Facility-Energy Committee in the European Commission Tuesday validated the allocation of 179 million euros for the works to be carried out by the Romanian company Transgaz on the national natural gas transport system in view of the development of the BRUA pipeline.
The Commission said the BRUA inter-connector is a key step to the development of the EU natural gas market, in that it will enable natural gas to reach Central Europe from the Caspian region and other sources.
For 2014-2020, the Commission has earmarked 5.3 billion euro for the trans-European energy infrastructure. ■
