Construction works should be completed in 18 months.

The planned length of the pipeline is 182 km and the projected capacity will be up to 3 billion cubic meters per year in the direction from Greece to Bulgaria.

 

The construction of the pipeline is expected to start around May 20, Bulgarian prime minister Boyko Borissov said last month.

 

The project is being implemented by the joint venture company ICGB, in which state-owned Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) and Greece-registered IGI Poseidon hold equal stakes.
