Green light for SK-HU natural gas pipe

A PROJECT to interconnect Slovak and Hungarian natural gas transport systems that the Eustream company wants to build on the Slovak side will not have a negative impact on the environment, according to the Environmental Impact Assessment issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Regional Development in late October. The report recommends that the project be initiated, the SITA newswire reported.

Eustream, a subsidiary of Slovenský Plynárenský Priemysel (SPP), will have to comply with over twenty additional terms during the construction and operation of the pipeline. For example, Eustream will have to conduct preliminary archaeological research, make pressure tests of pipelines, verify the quality of insulation materials on the pipes and all welds, and cut trees and vegetation only during times when birds are not nesting.
