Hungary’s oil and gas company MOL signed agreements with two Bahraini companies: one on increasing the efficiency of hydrocarbon production and the other on technological solutions, Attila Steiner, State Secretary for Energy and Climate Policy told Hungarian news agency MTI.

“There are technologies in Hungary that could be of interest to the Bahraini side, such as how to extract more hydrocarbons from an already depleting natural gas field or oil field,” he said. “In this agreement, Mol can transfer knowledge to the Bahraini side, and on the basis of the technology agreement the Hungarian company can demonstrate how to increase durability and make traffic quieter by using materials and additives in road construction,” Steiner explained.
