Gas options for Bulgaria

Gas options for Bulgaria

The interconnector with Greece near Komotini is expected to be completed by the end of June and the Azeri gas to flow through it to Bulgaria in September, Prime Minister Kiril Petkov, who inspected the gas route today, said.

According to PM Petkov, Bulgaria has three alternative sources of gas if supplies from Russia are cut off. "This facility can bring 3 bcm, which is Bulgaria's approximate consumption. There are also gas connections through Mesemviria and Turkey, so we are absolutely ready for such a scenario," he said.

Kiril Petkov reminded that the purpose of the interconnector between Bulgaria and Greece was to link the gas transmission networks of the two countries and provide access to the Southern Gas Corridor and a number of new sources of natural gas.
