Bulgaria Is Difficult to Sidestep in Major Gas Pipeline Projects – Bulgartransgaz CEO

Georgi Gegov, CEO of state-owned gas transmission operator Bulgartransgaz, has suggested that it will not be easy for major gas pipeline projects to circumvent Bulgaria.
Speaking Thursday during a conference titled “Industry, Energy, and Environment”, he noted that gas shipments to Greece and Turkey from Ukraine were delivered entirely through Bulgarian capacity.
Gegov, as cited by investor.bg, said that the company was working actively to support gasification, with 280 kilometers of new branch gas pipelines currently under construction.
He specified that the new gas pipelines connected Dobrich to Silistra, Simitli to Bansko and Razlog, Chiren to Kozloduy and Oryahovo, and Panagyurishte to Pirdop.
The CEO of Bulgartransgaz informed that the routes of some of these pipelines had not yet been specified and the feasibility studies for them had not been launched.
He assured that Bulgargaz and the Environment Ministry were cooperating in order to make sure that the gas pipelines were built as soon as possible.
Gegov made clear that these projects were financed by the Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
