Bulgartransgaz said it was seeking offers until March 6. Russian oil and gas pipe maker TMK has said it is interested in bidding for the construction of the 484 km gas pipeline, as Sofia looks to secure a link with the Moscow-designed TurkStream gas pipeline.

The tender was suspended earlier this month following a request for clarification by a Bulgarian company, which has since withdrawn it.
