In the east of Slovakia a new gas storage
In Eastern Slovakia, a new gas tank will grow. Partial state-controlled company Nafta, invests approximately € 178 million in its construction. Nafta plans to build a reservoir with a capacity of 340 million cubic meters in Keľké Kapušany, in the locality of fired natural gas deposit, Ptruška.
Construction of a new gas storage will begin in three years and it will last for five years. It will run in 2023. The new project strengthens the security of gas supplies and integrates the Slovak, Polish, Hungarian and Ukrainian markets. The storage capacity should come close to one of the gas gates to the EU - the Velké Kapušany compressor station. In this locality there are three existing and two planned gas pipeline routes and there is no storage capacity up to now.
