All activities connected with the gas interconnection Bulgaria – Serbia have been completed. The interconnector will allow for a safer and more stable gas supply from different sources, most of all Azerbaijan, said Serbia’s Energy Minister Dubravka Handanovic, after inspecting the project which is of strategic importance to Serbia. “The Serbia-Bulgaria gas pipeline is the first major energy project to have been completed on schedule. We started work just one year ago, and in 12 months of hard work, 109 kms. of new gas pipeline was built, as well as four measuring and regulating stations in Pirot, Tsaribrod, Bela Palanka and Nis, as well as a big station at Trupale. I am expecting the gas pipeline to be put into trial operation by the end of the week,” Minister Handanovic said. The official inauguration of the gas pipeline will be attended by the presidents of Bulgaria and Azerbaijan.
