Romania and Moldova start construction of joint pipeline

Romania will produce enough natural gas by 2018, to meet its domestic consumption and that of the Republic of Moldova, visiting Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta said Tuesday on opening the construction works on the gas pipeline linking the two countries.

Ponta kicked off the construction of the Iasi (Romania)-Ungheni (Moldova) gas pipeline at Zagarancea rural town of Ungheni District, the Moldovan end of the pipeline, together with his Moldovan counterpart Iurie Leanca and the European Commissioner for Energy Guenther Oettinger.

“I am very glad that after many nice words which Bucharest and Brussels told the Republic of Moldova, deeds happen at last,” said Ponta.

In his address, Iurie Leanca said that this project will enable Moldova to diversify its gas sources.
