Hungarian state seeks control of natural gas reserves
BUDAPEST -- Hungary's government is motioning legal changes to take the country's natural gas reserves into state control, political daily Nepszabadsag reported.
The bill submitted by a government official stipulates that any natural gas storage sites of strategic importance would be in state control, and that the state would have a purchase option for any existing ones constructed by private enterprises. Hungary currently has one such site, built and operated by MOL Nyrt.
