Bulgaria starts construction of gas pipeline with Romania

In 2009 Bulgartransgaz EAD and S.N.T.G.N. Transgaz S.A. signed a Memorandum of agreement according to which the two countries should cooperate in the construction of the Gas Interconnection Bulgaria – Romania Project.

Now, Bulgaria has started construction works of the gas pipeline that will link the country’s gas distribution network to that of Romania. The 25 km pipeline is expected to cost 23.8 million euro, including a grant of 9 million euro from the EU Commission, and is expected to have an annual capacity of 1.5 billion cubic meters. It will link Bulgaria to the EU’s gas network. In the winter of 2009, Russia stopped gas deliveries to Bulgaria and other EU countries for two weeks, followed by Bulgaria’s decision to reduce its dependence on Russian gas. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012, with the pipeline becoming fully operational in May 2013.
