The countries link their gas transmission systems

According to the Ukrtransgas press service, Romania and Ukraine have turned their cross-border transfer point at Isaccea/Orlovka into an interconnection point as defined by the European Union regulations. Operator companies plan to permanently supply gas from Ukraine to Bulgaria through Romanian territory. The system will also be used for reverse-flow supplies from the EU to Ukraine. This route was previously used by Russian monopolist Gazprom to deliver gas to Bulgaria.

The agreement will come into an effect on October 1.
