This moment is important because it brings us closer to the role that Romania wants in the region. Through BRUA, Romania will be able to exploit the huge potential of the Black Sea natural gas deposits and thus we will become an energy security factor in this part of Europe, "said Energy Minister Anton Anton.
The BRUA project consists of building a pipeline of about 479 kilometers long and three compressing stations (Jupa, Bibesti and Podişor).
