Gastrade has welcomed another shareholder in the project for the development of an LNG terminal near the city of Alexandroupolis. The Greek natural gas transmission system operator DESFA SA – Hellenic Gas Transmission System Operator is joining the initiative alongside several other key energy companies in the region, including the Bulgarian TSO Bulgartransgaz, which acquired a 20% share earlier this year. The #LNG terminal will offer new possibilities to the Southeastern gas market and will allow alternative sources and routes for gas supply.
The terminal is in great synergy with major energy infrastructure projects such as #TAP and #IGB due to its strategic location. The transmission capacity of the #interconnector between Greece and Bulgaria will provide a reliable route for the liquefied natural gas, which will open new opportunities for export to Southeastern and Central Europe, enhancing the #diversification and market liquidity on the Balkans. DESFA and ICGB are proactively working in close cooperation то achieve that goal. Additionally, the successful completion of the Greek terminal will boost IGB’s ability to reach its full capacity, which will contribute directly to improved competition and security of gas supplies in the entire region .
Gas Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria is co-financed by the European Union's
European Energy Programme for Recovery programme.
