Bulgaria plans to finalize gas hub project in month and a half
The project is being drafted together with the European Commission in great detail in order to make sure that the development model will be sustainable and there will be no risk of an infringement procedure to be launched over it, Donchev said.
Prime Minister Boyko Borisov proposed the gas hub, to be built near the city of Varna, days after Russia abandoned the Gazprom-led South Stream pipeline project over objections from the European Commission.
Gas could be fed into the proposed regional distribution centre by Russia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan as well as from Bulgarian and Romanian deposits. ■
