Moldova has ceased to be dependent on gas supplied from Russia. This was announced by the Minister of Infrastructure and Regional Development of the Republic Andrei Spinu.
“For the first time in the history of our country, the right bank <Dniester — approx. The Insider> will not consume gas supplied by Gazprom. Since last year, we have promised to make reserves and find alternatives in order to stop depending on one source. We succeeded,” he writes.
According to him, the Commission for Emergency Situations (ECS) has decided that Moldovagaz will purchase about 100 million m³ of gas from the Energocom state enterprise in December at a preliminary average price of $1,108.61 per 1,000 m³. This amount includes the cost of buying gas and spending on transportation and storage. In addition, writes Spinu, the Moldovan government will continue to increase gas reserves in the coming months. He also promised that the tariff for consumers would remain unchanged.
