Romania, dependent on Russian gas transit through Ukraine?

Granting subsidies from the state budget to extend gas distribution networks and connect vulnerable consumers to them, extension of Rabla Plus Program including to compressed gas vehicles, reintroducing the environmental tax for polluting vehicles and supporting the petrochemical industry should be, in the following period, the main targets of the government policy to ensure a higher use of natural gas. These are the conclusions of the study ‘The perspective of natural gas in Romania and the modalities for their superior capitalization’, prepared by the members of think-tank Energy Policy Group – Vasile Iuga and Radu Dudau.

The report analyses the current natural gas sector from the point of view of reserves, infrastructure and market setup. The report also addresses the prospects for the evolution of different segments of natural gas consumption by 2030 and provides appropriate policy and regulation recommendations which would lead to the value-added capitalization, on the Romanian market, of the expected Black Sea natural gas production but also of onshore deposit.
