Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó met CEOs of Gazprom and Rosatom for talks in Budapest

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó met CEOs of Gazprom and Rosatom for talks in Budapest

Budapest. October 31 - Neftegaz.RU. Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó met leaders of Russia’s Gazprom and Rosatom for talks in Hungary.

After talks with Gazprom’s CEO Alexey Miller, Szijjártó said that Hungary’s gas supplies had “never been this secure” and added that “for the 1st time in history Hungary’s gas storage facilities are full”.

In 2019, Gazprom exported an estimated 9.3 billion cu m of gas to Hungary from the year’s beginning through October 29, and that is already a 22 % increase compared with the total gas supplies to Hungary recorded in 2018.

It was pointed out at the meeting that activities aimed at the gas transmission system development are being implemented in Hungary as provided for by the roadmap earlier signed by the parties.

According to a foreign ministry statement, Hungary now has 6.4 billion cu m of gas in reserve, which puts the country in a position to “start negotiations about supplies for the next heating season already”. Szijjártó said he had agreed with Miller on resuming gas supplies next April.

During talks with Rosatom leader Alexey Likhachev, Szijjártó said that obtaining a technical permit in October was a milestone in the upgrade of the Paks nuclear plant, and added that the next important step would be submitting an application for the implementation permit before June 30 next year.
