Seenews.com: Serbia eyes imports from Southern Gas Corridor through Bulgaria

 

Serbia’s government is interested in the imports of natural gas from the Southern Gas Corridor via Bulgaria, Serbia’s energy minister Aleksandar Antic has said.

Serbia plans to connect to the Southern Gas Corridor via Bulgaria as well as to build a gas link to Romania, Antic said in a government press release on Monday.

Moreover, the country intends to construct a gas pipeline connecting Belgrade to Banja Luka, the main city of neighbouring Bosnia’s Serb Republic entity, which will branch out from the transmission pipeline that Serbia is building from its border with Bulgaria to the border with Hungary as an extension of the TurkStream pipeline of Russia’s Gazprom to Europe, Antic said.

In May 2018, Bulgaria and Serbia signed a declaration on the construction of a pipeline that will link their gas transmission systems, to be operational by May 2022.
