Bulgarian natural gas transmission system operator Bulgartransgaz has started the development of a feasibility study for a new gas pipeline stretching between borders with Serbia and Turkey.
The starting point of the new pipeline is set to be close to the existing connection between the Bulgatransgaz’ and Turkish operator BOTAS’ gas transmission networks. The pipeline then would continue until It reaches compressor station Provadia, as a part of the existing infrastructure, and from there it would go to the border between Bulgaria and Serbia near Zajecar, where would be its exit point. Commercial exploitation of the new gas pipeline is expected to begin on 1 January 2020.
