Bosnia and Herzegovina changes import route for Russian gas

Gazprom´s natural gas has been supplied to Bosnia and Herzegovina, part of the former Yugoslavia, since 1978

Bosnia and Herzegovina changes import route for Russian gas

Sarajevo, April 8 - Neftegaz.RU. Bosnia and Herzegovina has opened a new route for natural gas imports from Russia, the country's largest gas importer Energoinvest told journalists here on April 7.

Bisera Hadzialjevic, Director of Energoinvest, said:
  • The new route runs across Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia and replaces the previously used route via Ukraine, Hungary and Serbia
  • Both routes enter Bosnia and Herzegovina near Zvornik, some 140 kilometers northeast of the capital Sarajevo
  • The change of route has been imposed by Gazprom Export, Bosnia and Herzegovina's only gas supplier
Hadzialjevic explained that the change will bring benefits to Bosnia and Herzegovina as the price of gas imported through the new route is about 25% lower than that via Ukraine and Hungary.

Gazprom Export began to supply gas to Serbia via the Turkish Stream pipeline on Jan. 1, 2021.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is the 6th European country to receive Russian gas via this route after Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia, Romania and Serbia.

The Turkish Stream pipeline stretches from Russia to Turkey across the Black Sea. Its annual transport capacity is 31.5 billion cubic meters.
Bosnia and Herzegovina's annual natural gas consumption was 235 million m3 in 2019, the Agency for Statistics of BiH said.
