Construction of Bulgaria-Serbia gas connection starts in summer

“I expect the construction of the gas interconnector between Bulgaria and Serbia to start in June or July this year”, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has said.

“After the interconnector is finished, we will have to build a gas pipeline to the Hungarian border,” he added.

According to Vucic, the interconnector will allow Serbia to receive gas from the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.

Speaking to Sputnik, Vucic also said that the talks with the Russian side on the Mi-17 helicopters continued. He hopes they will be completed by the year end.

“The forthcoming visit of the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov is very important for our country. He is a great friend of Serbia and I look forward to strengthening our ties, talking about the ongoing issues and expanding cooperation in all areas, “the Serbian president said.

The interconnection between Bulgaria and Serbia

The Sofia-Tsaribrod / Dimitrovgrad (Serbia) interconnection gas pipeline – Nis (Serbia) is envisaged as a reversal link connecting the national gas networks of Bulgaria and Serbia. The interconnector will contribute to the diversification of routes, and the implementation of natural gas transmission. Initially, the interconnector is expected to provide a supply of 1.8 billion cubic meters of gas. The European Commission has said that the project is in the common interest of the EU countries too.
