Bulgaria Delays Oil Pipeline Decision for Environment Study

 

Bulgaria has delayed for the second time a decision on whether to build an oil pipeline bypassing Turkey's Bosporus Strait, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

It extended the deadline for an environmental impact report by two months, Bloomberg reported.

The government ordered a study into the proposed pipeline from the Bulgarian Black Sea port of Burgas to the Greek port of Alexandroupolis, on the Aegean, because of concern that an oil spill would harm the country's Black Sea resorts, Bloomberg reported.

The Bulgarian unit of the pipeline joint venture Trans Balkan Pipeline B.V. submitted a report in November, but it was rejected by the environment ministry due to insufficient information and the company was requested to submit an improved version by end of January.
