Podle nedělního televizního zpravodajství došlo v Maďarsku při hranicích s Rumunskem k objevu obřího ložiska zemního plynu, ukrytého v hloubi asi 6km. Toto ložisko by údajně mělo pokrýt spotřebu Maďarska na 20 resp. 40 let. Průzkumné práce provádí údajně kanadská společnost Falcon, jež nasadila nejmodernější techniku pro vrtání ve velikých hloubkách.

On December 21, 2006, Falcon received written acceptance an approval of the formal Closing Report which it submitted to the Hungarian government authorities in October 2006. This government action means that the Hungarian government has validated and agrees with Falcon's geological and technical evaluation and conclusions about the existence, extent, and potential recoverable volumes of gas within the Basin Centered Gas Accumulation ("BCGA") underlying Falcon's exploration licenses. The approved Mining Plot covers 100 per cent of the area used by the Scotia Group, Inc., for their resource estimate, in a report ("Scotia Report") dated effective August 15, 2006 (previously filed at www.Sedar.com). This area is a continuous basin centered gas accumulation. The Mining Plot approval is for a period of 35 years with an extension for 17 1/2 additional years. "
Commencement of Completion Operations
Falcon has started completion operations. The company continues to drill the Mako 7 which is already the deepest well at 19,862 feet (6054 meters) in Hungarian history.
Multiple zones of interest have been identified for completion and testing in each of the wells. Falcon plans to complete and obtain initial flow tests of the deepest zones first and continue testing of zones progressively farther up hole, subject to the results from lower zones. Results from the testing operations will be announced from time to time over the next several weeks or months.
Testing Infrastructure Completed Ahead of Schedule
Falcon has completed construction of a seven-mile (12-kilometer), 12-inch diameter high pressure gas gathering pipeline and related infrastructure that ties the Mako-6 well into the MOL transmission line which delivers gas to MOL's Algyo gas processing plant, approximately ten miles from the connection. During the initial testing phase, Falcon expects flaring to be limited to clean-up flow and an initial flor test of each well completion. Longer term testing will utilize the pipeline
