OMV Petrom, the largest oil and gas producer in Southeastern Europe, has completed two new gas processing and compressing stations in Vrancea and Valcea counties, following an investment of over EUR 130 million, a press release informs.
Through the new stations, the annual gas production could cover the need for 330,000 houses.
The investments started in 2013 and will allow the delivery of gas to the national transport system at pressures of up to 40 bar, the release reads. Also, the two units process about 7.5 percent of OMV Petrom’s gas output in Romania.
The gas projects from Burcioaia (Vrancea county) and Madulari (Valcea county) include the construction of pipelines for collecting gas from deposits, the construction of stations for gas’ drying, compressing and measuring, as well as the necessary infrastructure for connecting to the national transport system.
The construction on the two projects amounted to approximately 1.3 million hours of work, OMV Petrom notes.
