Slovakia signs memorandum with Bulgaria over Eastring pipeline
Ziga said the deal still lacks the signatures of two partner countries - Hungary and Romania - through which the pipeline should pass.
Stankov noted this memorandum would enhance the energy security of the EU.
The Eastring pipeline is a joint project of Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary with a planned capacity hovering at around 20 to 40 billion cubic metres of gas per year.
The project should involve gas from the Caspian region, with a corridor prepared for transporting the commodity from southeastern Europe to western Europe. ■
