IGB, or the Gas Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria, is a gas pipeline that will make it possible for Bulgaria to receive Azerbaijan’s gas, in particular, the gas produced at Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz 2 field.

IGB is expected to be connected to the TAP (Trans-Adriatic Pipeline), meant to deliver gas from Shah Deniz to Europe’s market. TAP, which is projected to be 870 kilometers long, will transport gas from the Caspian region through Greece, Albania and Adriatic Sea to southern Italy, and further to the west of Europe.
