New pipeline in Bulgarian Silistra

10. April, 2012

Bulgaria has decided to start building a natural gas supply pipeline to the northeastern city of Silistra in 2012. The company in charge of the construction is Bulgartransgaz. The new pipeline will go through several municipalities and will bring Russian gas not only to Silistra, but also to Dobrich, Dulovo, Alfatar and other towns. Silistra has several industrial parks which will be connected to the new supply of gas – a factor which will boost the productivity of this area, increase employment and make the area more attractive for potential investors.

The total cost of the new pipeline is expected to be about 12 mil. Eur, 70 percent of which will be covered by EU funding. The rest of the financing will be provided by Bulgartransgaz.
