Romania, Azomures is taking steps to resume operations in early May

, SEE Energy News

Romanian fertilizer producer Azomures, the largest single natural gas consumer in the country, is taking steps to resume operations in early May, after the four-month cessation of activities by the high gas prices last winter.

However, the plant will still operate at reduced capacity, because the price of natural gas is still high. As a matter of fact, gas prices have increased since Azomures decided to stop operations last December, from 90-120 euros/ MWh to almost EUR 345 euros/MWh in early March.

Azomures expects support from the Romanian Government after the European Commission established a legal framework under which the EU member states can support companies essential to agriculture.
