... and will consider the exploitation of the country's own resources without waiting for more external approvals.
"I now agree, with no doubt, that Romania must accelerate the evaluation processes and move on to the exploitation of shale gas, and evaluate and move on to the exploitation of the gas & oil reserves already confirmed in the Black Sea," said President Basescu.
He added that another source for Romania would be resuming the exploitation with modern technology of the currently abandoned oil fields which have been exploited in the past.
The Nabucco consortium leader OMV announced that the group of companies operating the Shah Deniz gas deposit in Azerbaijan had not selected the Nabucco gas pipeline as the transport route to get the gas to Europe.
