A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the #gazprom Management Committee, and #temenuzhkapetkova, Minister of Energy of the Republic of Bulgaria, took place in Moscow today.

The meeting addressed, inter alia, the prospects of Russian #gas supplies to Europe via TurkStream. #alexeymiller informed #temenuzhkapetkova of the timely completion of pipelaying for the offshore section of the #gas pipeline’s first string. It was noted that TurkStream was key to improving the reliability of gas exports to Europe. #temenuzhkapetkova, in turn, spoke about the current state of, and the development plans for, the Bulgarian #gas transmission system.


In 2017, Gazprom's #gas exports to Bulgaria totaled 3.3 billion cubic meters, an increase of 4.7 per cent from 2016 (3.2 billion cubic meters).

TurkStream is the project for a gas pipeline stretching across the Black Sea from #Russia to Turkey and further to Turkey's border with neighboring countries. The first string of TurkStream is intended for Turkish consumers, while the second string will deliver #gas to southern and southeastern Europe. Each string will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year. South Stream Transport B.V., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gazprom, is responsible for the construction of the #gas pipeline's offshore section, which commenced on May 7, 2017.
