The Turkish Petroleum Pipeline Company “BOTAŞ” announced in a statement on Wednesday the signing of an “important agreement” with OMV Petrom, one of the largest energy companies in the region.

The company said that the agreement allows Romania to be supplied with up to 4 million cubic meters of natural gas per day through dedicated pipelines.

It indicated that the export of natural gas will begin as of October 1, 2023 within the framework of the agreement, the term of which expires on March 31, 2025.
