Vucic: Construction of Bulgaria-Serbia gas connection begins in summer 2018


«I expect in June or July to begin the construction of the interconnector between Bulgaria and Serbia», according to serbian Novinite it was stated by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on January 25, 2018.

«After building the interconnector between Bulgaria and Serbia, we will have to build a gas pipeline to the Hungarian border,» he said.

According to him, the interconnector connection will allow Serbia to receive gas from Turkish Stream, for which is also expected EU funding.

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, the interconnection of the 2 countries and the implementation of natural gas transmission.

Initially, the interconnector is expected to provide a supply of 1.8 billion cubic meters of gas. It was declared by the European Commission as a project of common interest of the EU.

On January 19, 2017, the Ministers of Energy of Bulgaria and Serbia Temenujka Petkova and Alexander Antic signed a MoU on the Interconnector Project.

For the construction of the Bulgarian section, funding is provided under the Innovation and Competitiveness Program 2014-2020 amounting to EUR 45 million.
