Construction will start this month on the Ungheni-Chisinau pipeline, Moldova’s section of a planned Moldova-Romania interconnector, Moldovan Parliamentary Speaker Andrian Candu said in an interview with Radio Moldova on Wednesday.

The pipeline will allow the country to receive Romanian gas and diversify its sources of supplies by the time its supply contract with Gazprom expires at the end of 2019. The €150 million ($174 million) project is being carried out by Romanian transmission system operator (TSO) Transgaz, which bought Moldovan TSO Vestmoldovatransgaz in March.
