Moldova buys Gas from Poland amid gas shortage

Moldova’s government says it has bought a million cubic meters of natural gas from Poland after Chisinau failed to agree on a new energy deal with traditional supplier Russia.

“A contract was signed for a trial purchase of one million cubic meters of natural gas between the state-owned company Energocom and the Polish company PGNiG,” the government said in a statement on October 25, calling it “the first purchase of gas from alternative sources” in the history of independent Moldova.

The purchase will “test the possibility of importing gas from alternative sources and balance the low pressure in the natural gas supply system,” the statement reads.

Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spinu told a briefing on October 25 that the government in Chisinau will continue talks with Gazprom this week and seek a “fair” price.
