Romania imported less natural gas

Romania imported less natural gas in the first six months of the year, with almost 80% less natural gas than in the same period of 2014, according to the country’s National Statistics Institute (INS).

At an average annual output of 11 billion cubic meters, it is estimated, however, that the current reserves could run out in a period of about 14 years. (RADIO ROMANIA reports)
