EC Gives Permission to Bulgaria For Deliveries of Russian Gas to Balkan Gas Hub
Bulgaria has received permission from the European Commission for the supplies of Russian gas to the Balkan gas distribution center, the Ministry of Interior announced, quoted by BNR.
In a letter signed by EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete, Brussels says it supports the development of the gas hub and recalls that this country needs to improve its energy infrastructure, including the gas connections with Greece and Serbia.
On July 19th, Bulgarian Prime Minister Borisov announced he had requested permission from Brussels for a link to the Turkish Stream, through which Russian gas would be delivered directly to Bulgaria.
The letter received in the Ministry of Energy does not mention the specific project.
