Bulgaria’s state-owned gas transmission system operator Bulgartransgaz EAD has been issued an act for establishment of the construction works’ fitness for operation (Act 16) for the Dobrich – Silistra gas pipeline.
Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on Facebook that he had been informed about the development by Bulgargaz late on Monday.
Borisov, as cited by Sega daily, congratulated residents of Silistra and the Silistra district on the completion of the gasification projects, stressing that the opportunity was available both to households and industrial consumers.
He emphasized that the project had remained at a standstill for two years, adding that he and the new management team of the state-owned gas company had managed to restart it and complete it in just 6 months.
The Dobrich – Silistra gas pipeline is 80 kilometers long and has a capacity of 100 000 cubic meters of gas per hour.
The investment amounted to EUR 12 286 000.
