Romania’s gas imports amounted to 20% of national consumption on Friday, as OMV Petrom stopped several installations at the Hurezani gas hub, where the country’s main gas treatment plant is located, toldf Agerpres sources from the energy sector.
Thus, according to the Transgaz website, on Friday at 14:00 in the national gas system were 25.2 million cubic meters per day, of which 19.4 million cubic meters of domestic production and 5.8 million cubic meters of import, according to Agerpres.
The share of imports (20% of the total) is very high, given that, during the summer, domestic production usually covers the country’s consumption.
According to the quoted sources, the situation is due to the fact that OMV Petrom has started repair works at the Hurezani installations, the main gas hub in the country, works that will last several days.
“From there normally come about 5-6 million cubic meters per day, and now came about 2.5 million cubic meters per day,” said the sources.
