Wednesday, 08 October 2014
There is currently no decrease in Bulgaria's gas pipeline network pressure, or in the delivered gas volumes from Russia, Deputy Minister of Economy and Energy Anton Pavlov said.
At a press conference, Tuesday, Pavlov pointed out that Bulgaria properly fulfills its obligations regarding the gas transits to other countries, Bulgarian Telegraph Agency reports. He, however, pointed out significant delays in all gas interconnections projects. The delays are of three to five years, Pavlov said.
The Caretaker government is actively working for the implementation of these projects - the OP Competitiveness provides for a feasibility study of the gas interconnection between Bulgaria and Serbia, said Pavlov. He noted that there are important archaeological sites along the route and a solution is being sought.
