The European Commission opened an official investigation procedure on the Romanian state-owned gas transporter Transgaz. The company is being suspected of hindering the exports of natural gas from Romania to other EU member states through Hungary, according to EC.
The decision comes one year after the European Commission’s competition inspectors made controls at Transgaz, Romgaz, and OMV Petrom, romania-insider.com reports.
Transgaz representatives said that they would clarify the situation and would provide the information and the documents that the European Commission needs in the investigation. The state-owned company also said that the investigation doesn’t affect its operations.
