A gas link more than 70 miles long connecting the networks of Hungary and Slovakia will begin trials in the middle of next year and start regular distribution in 2015 according to the Hungarian government.

Peter Szijjarto, Hungary’s State Secretary for external economics made the announcement following a meeting of the Hungary-Slovakia joint economic committee in Bratislava.

He said the connection was vital to the security of energy supplies for both Hungary and the whole of Central Europe.

The Hungarian government recently bought back two gas companies from E.ON.
