Borissov stated this on the official start of the interconnection between Bulgaria and Greece. “The project will result in real diversification of sources and paths of natural gas”. The PM reminded to his Greek colleague that the Bulgarian government sets great store on the guarantee of energy security and market development, including preparation, building assignation and operation exploitation of the gas interconnection Bulgaria-Greece in 2020. “We carry out our tasks in order to ensure roads where the gas should be delivered in competitive terms”, said our PM.
Both country leaders pointed out the key importance of the gas interconnection as a part of their joint Balkan projects, as well as the main part that the building of roads, railway roads, ports and digital infrastructure play for connection and stability on the Balkan peninsular. “The more our joint projects develop, better it is for the investments, tourism, loads”, continued Borissov.
Building the gas interconnection between Greece and Bulgaria aims at ensuring diversification not only for routs, but also for sources of natural gas for Bulgaria and the region. By the IGB Bulgaria and her neighbor countries will have access to alternative delivery from the Caspian region, as well as from current or future terminals for liquefied gas.
The gas interconnection between Bulgaria and Greece is 182 km long – 150km are in Bulgaria. It starts from Komotini, Greece and reaches Bulgarian gas system in Stara Zagora. Its technical capacity is between 3 and 5 billion m3. The project is to the total value of EUR 220 million.
