Romgaz SA, Romania’s state-owned natural-gas company, plans to invest 135 million euros ($177 million) to raise storage capacity in the next three years, Ziarul Financiar reported, citing Deputy Manager Lucian Stancu.
Romgaz wants to increase storage capacity to about 3 billion cubic meters by 2015, from the current 2.8 billion, to cope with rising consumption, the newspaper said.
Romania’s gas consumption reached a record high of 72.7 million cubic meters on Feb. 1, Ziarul Financiar said.
