Romanian independent Black Sea Oil & Gas (BSOG) is forging ahead with development of its domestic flagship Midia gas project in the Black Sea, where it aims to start production next year.

BSOG, together with co-venture partners Petro Ventures Resources and Gas Plus International, completed the transportation of 147 kilometres of pipe from Greece to its storage yard in Romania’s Constanta on the Black Sea coast during lockdown in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Covid-19 measures

The transport was handled by Greek player Corinth Pipeworks, which introduced preventative measures in response to the pandemic to protect employees, communities, suppliers and customers — measures that included setting up crisis management and re-operation teams.
