Romania Buys Russian

BUCHAREST () -- Romania plans to import up to 7 billion cubic meters of Russian gas in 1995 -- some 2 billion cubic meters more than this year -- to meet domestic consumption requirements, an official said Wednesday.

"Planned domestic gas output next year is around 21 billion cubic meters, which will not be enough to meet industrial and household consumption needs. So we will resort to imports," said Cristian Istodorescu, head of the Industry Ministry's oil and gas department.
