Our commitment, to ourselves, firstly, and to the European Union is to have 46% in deposits by August 1, 57% by September 1, 66% by October 1 and 80% by November 1," said Nicolae Ciuca, in Constanta.The Prime Minister said that 80% represents the minimum for ensuring the necessary gas quantity during winter."Of course, actions are being taken... Talks are underway in relation to the contract elements with Azerbaijan. We are also talking with the US side for liquefied gas, and we are also talking, because we are not depending on the origin part and the receiving part in our country, but we are also talking about transit areas and we must make it so that we receive the accept from transit countries, such as Turkey, Bulgaria and Greece. We also depended on the interconnector between Greece and Bulgaria. I understand that it is finished and that we can more easily discuss about this possibility, that of bringing gas in our country," Ciuca mentioned.
