For his part, the executive director of Avax, Antoniоs Mitzalis, assured that the Bulgarian-Greek gas connection would be fully completed by the end of August. However, accompanying activities to legitimize the project are forthcoming. Bulgaria is ready to cooperate for the quick commissioning of the gas connection, the head of state said.
Teodora Georgieva, executive director of the contracting authority ICGB, stated that there was currently a discussion with Bulgargaz about when the Komotini point would be activated for the reception of Azeri gas.
