Background

In June 2019 the project was announced by Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó and Serbia’s Minister of Energy and Mining Aleksandar Antić. The two countries planned to invite bids to build the pipeline in September 2019.

In June 2020, FGSZ announced it had approved the development of the new Serbian-Hungarian interconnector capacity capable of transporting 6 bcm/y.[3]

According to the 2019 FGSZ 10 Year Plan, the pipeline will be constructed in two stages. Stage one will run from Serbian border to Kiskundorozsma, and stage two will run from Kiskundorozsma to Városföld.[1]
