FM Melescanu: The US Energy Secretary Rick Perry urged Ambassador George Maior for concordance between the offshore bill and an annex to it
Foreign Minister, Teodor Melescanu, has said on Saturday that the US Energy Secretary, Rick Perry, asked the Romanian ambassador in Washington DC, George Maior, that the Romanian authorities assure the concordance between the offshore bill and the annex which includes the calculations for expenditure deduction. “It is a customary issue for two allied states, members of a strategic partnership. Official consultations are very useful and important when some fears appear. From this point of view, it is routine, it is customary. The only issue related to the concordance between the text of the law and the annex which includes the calculations for the deduction of expenditures for exploitations, given that the offshore drills are much more expensive for the exploitation of natural gas. Furthermore, it was stressed the idea of the US interest in the relations with Romania in terms of energy, which is one of the main issues currently,” FM Melescanu has told Antena 3 TV private broadcaster.
