Bulgaria to Get up to 0.5 bcm of Gas/Yr via Link with Romania - Econ Minister

Bulgaria will be able to get up to 0.5 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas annually via the interconnector with Romania, using only a third of its planned capacity, Bulgaria's deputy economy minister.

Romania has failed to build a compression station near the capital Bucharest as planned, thwarting Bulgaria's plans to receive up to 1.5 bcm annually through the link, Ivan Ayolov said, as quoted by a press officer of the ministry.

The reverse flow gas link under the Danube will connect the southern Romanian village of Comasca with Marten, in northern Bulgaria. The project will be implemented jointly by Romania's Transgaz and Bulgaria’s gas transmission system operator Bulgartransgaz.

It envisages the construction of a 15 kilometre pipeline in Bulgaria, another 7.5 kilometres (km) in Romania and a 2.5 km underwater section.

In January Bulgartransgaz said that the interconnector is expected to be completed and go into operation by the end of March.
