BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 15

By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:

By mid-March, the linear part of the Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria (IGB) is close to completion, ICGB AD, a project company, told Trend.

“The construction of the Greece-Bulgaria interconnector is progressing actively. The activities on the linear part are in the final phase, the construction of the above-ground facilities is well progressing and 50% of the activities for construction of block valves have already been completed. This was established during a two-day inspection by the ICGB management along the entire route of the gas pipeline on Bulgarian and Greek territory,” the company said.

Reportedly, all the valves needed for the construction of the block valves have been delivered and their installation is ongoing.

The IGB project is of key importance for increasing security of supply and for ensuring diversification of natural gas sources for Bulgaria and the region of Southeast Europe. At the regional level, IGB will provide access to the gas transmission network for Bulgarian municipalities and regions that didn’t have an option for connectivity. The interconnector with Greece is an entirely new route for the transmission of natural gas to Europe and will give Bulgaria and the region access to supplies from new sources. The project will connect the country with the Southern Gas Corridor and has excellent synergy with other major energy projects such as TAP, TANAP, EastMed and the LNG terminal at Alexandroupolis.
