  • [01] Gov't: No issue of natgas shortage

    New Development Minister Costis Hatzidakis on Sunday reiterated that the government is confident of the country's natgas reserves and supply. Hatzidakis, speaking to a state-run TV network, also said that preparation of a tender for construction of a new natural gas condensation unit on the islet of Revythoussa will ensure even more supplies and energy security.

    Hatzidakis said he will take part on Monday in an off-the agenda EU energy ministers' summit, expected to focus on the issue of energy security, especially in the wake of the recent natural gas supply crisis.

    "We are closely monitoring the issue. A vessel carrying liquefied natural gas , which arrived on Sunday, will cover our needs until the beginning of next week. Nevertheless, the crisis indicates the need not to depend to just one source and one supplier. Anyway, this is our national energy mode," he added.

On 03 January 2009 Hungary received the normal amount of natural gas imported from Russia although Ukraine has decreased the amount of Russian gas destined for Europe and transited through Ukraine after Russian gas monopoly Gazprom fully cut gas deliveries to Ukraine due to disputes over the pricing for 2009 as of 01 January.
