Bulgaria’s PM: the potential to create a single gas trade market with Serbia, North Macedonia and Greece

There is a great potential to create a single gas trade market between Bulgaria, Serbia, North Macedonia and Greece, according to what Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov stated at a joint news conference with Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.

“We must pull together our efforts towards maximal diversification: this will give us better prices and greater independence as well potential joint investments in nuclear facilities,” Mr Petkov pointed out, underlining that the energy connectivity in the region and in particular gas connectivity, would be the Government’s top priority.

Alongside, economic development needs to be promoted accordingly.

“Our gas interconnection with Greece is a great priority for Bulgaria: its completion will give you direct access to liquefied natural gas and to Azeri gas via the interconnection with Serbia,” he added.

Among other topics discussed, Prime Minister Petkov stressed that bilateral cooperation would be strengthened in the fields of investment, innovation and tourism between Bulgaria and Serbia.
