Drop in Pressure in Nat Gas Supply Pipe from Ukraine, Supply Not Affected

There is a drop in pressure in the natural gas supply pipe from Ukraine, but Bulgaria can currently meet all its commitments related to the supply and transmission of natural gas, Deputy Prime Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva said on Tuesday.
It is normal for the pressure in the pipe to be above 38 bars and it is currently 34 bars, however, this does not mean that Bulgaria is unable to extract as much gas as it needs, Zaharieva explained. The critical point would be reached if the pressure drops below 28 bars, she added.
The Deputy PM said that Bulgaria has not received any warnings about lowering the natural gas supply. "We are constantly following up on this information and are prepared for such a situation," Zaharieva said, adding that pressure in the pipe is being monitored daily and the crisis task force has been working non-stop.
Unfortunately the Romanian interconnector is not ready yet, although the deadline was this summer, said Zaharieva, adding that the interconnector could not be used this winter.
