Romgaz, Romania’s state-controlled natural gas producer, considers a new investment in a combined power and heating plant (or cogeneration plant) in Oradea, in partnership with the municipality, reported.

The company ponders setting up an association with the operator of the centralized heating system in the city, controlled by the City Hall. Thus, a working group was set up within the company to prepare a feasibility report to jointly develop with Termoficare Oradea SA a high-efficiency cogeneration unit, according to a company document.


Romgaz is already working on a new 430 MW gas power plant at Iernut. It also announced plans to build a new combined-cycle power plant (a power plant that used the heat generated in the first cycle to make more power) with an installed power of 400-500 MW at Mintia, for which it is planning to complete its feasibility study by the end of August this year.


Daily (23.05.2019): European carbon prices spiked by nearly 4% on Wednesday, on looming tight supply and higher gas prices

23/05/2019 11:48:00

Crude oil prices dropped on Wednesday, after data showed that U.S. crude inventories surged unexpectedly amplifying concerns over a weaker oil demand raised by the lengthy U.S.-China tariff dispute. WTI futures closed 2.7% lower at 61.42 USD/bbl, in tandem with falling equities. On the other side, rising tensions between Washington and Iran coupled with OPEC’s intentions to continue output cuts helped limit the fall in prices. As a result, Brent crude price dropped by 1.7% to 70.99 USD/bbl.
