high pressure natural gas pipeline system, and Geoplin plinovodi d.o.o.,

The Memorandum of Understanding is a
significant milestone in the bilateral relationship of FGSZ and Geoplin,

The cooperation – as well as our NETS
initiative - is driven by the same motives, i.e. calling for regional
cooperation of TSOs and increased security of supply in South and
Central Eastern Europe. The NETS project is aimed at improving the
security of gas supply in Central and South-East Europe to the benefit
of all concerned and on the basis of a partnership of equals.
