New gas pipeline between Hungary and Croatia operational
A new natural gas pipeline connecting Hungary and Croatia is now operational. It is a milestone event for Croatia as for the past 33 years, the country's only access to international gas pipelines had been a single line to Slovenia.

Pipeline operator Plinacro said the new pipeline connecting Városföld in Hungary and Slobodnica in Croatia has expanded the latter's import capacity and will provide wider access to supply sources, or even allow Croatia to become and exporter once a planned LNG regasification terminal on the island of Krk is complete, the press release noted.

Approved in 2009, the project cost EUR 395 million and has created 80.5 kilometers of pipeline in Croatia and 210 kilometers in Croatia. Plinacro, teamed up with MOL subsidiary FGSZ as its Hungarian partner, contributed EUR 75 million to the project costs.
