“This will contribute to the diversification of energy supply in Bulgaria and South-Eastern Europe. It is part of a wider plan to better connect energy markets among neighbouring countries – including Romania and Hungary – with the aim of improving the security of gas supplies in the region and the efficiency of the networks”, the Bank disclosed in a press
The 182 km-long gas pipeline consists of a 151-km section in Bulgaria and 31 km in Greece. “The initial capacity of the new pipeline will be 3 billion cubic metres per year (bcm/y), with it being possible to increase this to 5 bcm/y by adding a compressor station”, the official announcement further revealed.
