INA to buy raw natural gas from Slovenia

The Croatian oil and gas company INA will buy raw natural gas from two wells at Lendava, northeastern Slovenia, and will transport it to its central gas station at Molve for further processing and refining.

A one-year agreement to that effect was signed on Friday with the British-Slovenian company Geoenergo, which has a licence to drill for and exploit gas in the Mura Depression in Slovenia, Geoenergo said on Monday.

All the work necessary for the start of production at the two wells is to be completed within the next five months and trial production is due to begin in December this year.

Molve is located near Djurdjevac, about 100 kilometres northeast of Zagreb.
