Hungary wants to import gas from Azerbaijan – premier

Hungary would like to import gas from Azerbaijan and Georgia, said Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Nabucco to us is not interested. We would like to import gas from Azerbaijan. We are interested in alternatives such as liquefied natural gas from Georgia,” said Orban in an interview with Handelsblatt.

According to the Hungarian prime minister, bet on renewable energy in Hungary cannot be done, “though with one exception. I mean geothermal energy, because we have a lot of hot springs,” RBC reports.

“85% of our households use gas for heating, which is still available only from Russia. I promised to free Hungary from this dependence. Soon we will start receiving gas through Slovakia from the north of Europe. The pipeline will become operational at the end of next year. We can now import gas also from Romania,” said Orban.
