In Moldova, a natural gas market could be created where any interested energy distributor can come up with offers. This is what the president of the Romanian Commodity Exchange proposes, who says that Moldova must regain its energy independence by diversifying its supply sources.
The president of the Romanian Commodity Exchange says that there are several natural gas traders from European countries who want to deliver gas to the Republic of Moldova. The platform will give our authorities opportunities to directly access energy distributors.
Gabriel PURICE, PRESIDENT OF THE ROMANIAN GOODS EXCHANGE:“What we offer this part of logistics, ie we ensure in conditions of maximum competition and transparency, transactions that ensure the meeting of supply and demand in the most advantageous conditions for all participants.”
For example, gas from Romania could reach our country through the Iasi – Chisinau gas pipeline, which has recently become operational. At the same time, it would reduce Moldova’s dependence on Russian gas.
Gabriel PURICE, PRESIDENT OF THE ROMANIAN GOODS EXCHANGE:“It is a solution and I was glad to learn that it is clean and operationalized and can start transporting gas. We hope it will be part of the solution. 03:06 Moldova has some interconnection points and the gas can come from several countries. It’s absolutely normal. “
Experts say that the platform will not necessarily bring a lower price for gas than the market, but it can help ensure energy independence.
Veaceslav IONITA, DIRECTOR OF IDIS THE FUTURE:“Unfortunately, until now, the Republic of Moldova has a monopoly market in the field of gas delivery. We have one source, one enterprise. The citizens of the Republic of Moldova deserve energy security, they deserve predictability and they deserve to have an alternative to choose from. ”
At the same time, experts say that in the Republic of Moldova there should be a commodity exchange where all those interested have access.
Veaceslav IONITA, DIRECTOR OF IDIS THE FUTURE:“There are storage capacities in Romania, in Ukraine, there are companies that buy gas, store it, are owners and there must be a commodity exchange where companies from Romania, Ukraine, the Russian Federation, including Gazprom, and other companies where there are always . Best Price.”
The Romanian Commodity Exchange is the oldest private operator of the commodity trading platform in Romania. The president says that he is currently negotiating with the Moldovan authorities to obtain a license in our country as well.
