The establishment of an interconnector with reverse-flow capability could allow Hungary to buy gas from Croatia by the end of 2019, according to Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade PÃ©ter SzijjÃ¡rtÃ³.
The announcement came after SzijjÃ¡rtÃ³ met with CroatiaÊ¼s Minister of Environment and Energy Tomislav ÄoriÄ in Dubrovnik, according to state news agency MTI. Talks have started on the price of gas to be pumped from the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Krk, the Hungarian minister explained, adding that the Croatians plan the construction of the terminal by the second half of 2020.
SzijjÃ¡rtÃ³ said Hungary could access entirely new sources of gas when the countryÊ¼s long-term contract on deliveries from R ussia expires at the end of 2020, at the latest.
"In this respect, Croatia could be a strategic partner," SzijjÃ¡rtÃ³ said. "It serves HungaryÊ¼s economic and national security interests to get as many sources of gas as possible to satisfy the needs of the economy and households," he added.
The minister was in Croatia to participate at the Dubrovnik Forum, an annual international foreign policy conference.
