A  gas pipe between Romania and Serbia on the relation Arad-Mokrin could be finalised in 2026, investment of  43 million euro


Romania has in view to sign an agreement memorandum with  Serbia for the construction  of a interconnecting pipeline between Arad and  Mokrin with the length of 80 km to grow the degree of  energy security in the region, shows an Action Plan regarding the measures for the guarantee of the safety of natural gas supply, published by the ministry of energy.

‘The analysed variant for gas export to Serbia is to take over the natural gas from the future pipeline BRUA (phase I,II and III).The closest point of the pipeline BRUA to the border between Romania and Serbia is Mokrin,  the Arad area’ the plan shows.

‘The project ‘ The interconnection of the national transport system for natural gas with the similar transport of natural gas from Serbia’ implies the building of a pipeline for the interconnection of the national system of natural gas transport with the similar system of natural gas transport from Serbia on the direction Arad-Mokrin with the length of approximately 80 km.

From the total length of the new interconnecting pipeline between the two points, almost 74 km will be on the territory of Romania and 6 km on the territory of Serbia. At the same time, the project includes the construction of a  gas measurement station which could be place on the territory of Romania or Serbia.

The finalising date is 2026.

The  total estimated value of the investment is 43 milion euro out  of which 37  million  euro the pipeline on the territory of Romania, 3 million euro the pipeline on the territory of Serbia and 3 million euro for gas measurement, either on the territory of Romania or Serbia..

‘The export of natural gas to Serbia will be made after the finalisation of the BRUA project. In the situation where natural gas will be taken  from Serbia to Romania, they will be directed for consumption in the area Timisoara-Arad, through the pipelie DN 600 Horia –Masloc – Recas (25 bar)to pressures lower than in the BRUA pipeline’ the document shows.

The  national system for the transport of natural gas (SNT) of Romania is operated by Transgaz, the technical  operator of the transport system (OST).

The transport capacity of natural gas is ensured by the grid of pipelies and connections of supply with diametres between 50 and 1,200 mm and total length of 12,585 km ( 13,138KM includinf the transit pipes).

SNT is connected to the neighbouring states, with Ukraine, Hungary,the Republic of  Moldova and Bulgaria through five interconnecting points.
