The Prime-Minister Boyko Borissov held a meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić before the official ceremony for launching the TurkStream gas pipeline in Istanbul.
The Bulgarian PM pointed out how much work has been done towards the realization of “Balkan gas hub” infrastructure from the Bulgarian-Turkish to the Bulgarian-Serbian border.
Borissov added that different companies coming from Saudi Arabia, Italy and Turkey are working on the infrastructure laying in Bulgaria.
The pipeline on Bulgarian territory has a total length of 474 km, a diameter of 1220 mm and a maximum working pressure of 7.5 megapascals. The pipeline route passes through the territories of 34 municipalities in the territory of 11 districts. Currently the project is being implemented on the territory of 4 districts – Pleven, Lovech, Vratsa and Montana.
The Prime Minister Borisov expressed his gratitude to the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for inviting him to the opening ceremony of the Turkish Stream.
For the Russian media the PM said: “We are invited to the ceremony as good neighbours. Bullgaria is working on the Balkan gas hub on its territory, the interconnectors with Turkey, Serbia, Greece and Romania. We are ready to transfer gas from Russia and Azerbaijan through our pipeline”.
“The TurkStream connects directly the Russian federation with the Turkish gas pipeline. It is 930 km long – from a Russkaya compressor station near Anapa through the Black Sea to a terminal in Kıyıköy, Turkey. It is laid at a depth of 2,200 meters in the Black sea – the largest system, laid at such a depth. The gas pipeline has a capacity of 31.5 billion m3 gas per year. The pipeline from the terminal in Kıyıköy, Turkey to the Bulgarian border has a length of 142 km”, explained Borissov.
