IGB to dramatically change energy map of South-East Europe

By Trend

IGB is an energy bridge that brings Greece and Bulgaria even
closer, while dramatically changing the energy map of our region,
said Prime Minister of Greece Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Trend

He was addressing the ceremony of commercial launch of the
Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria.

“The beginning of IGB’s commercial operation constitutes an
exceptional moment for not just South-East Europe, but for Europe
more broadly. This pipeline significantly bolsters energy and
supply security for all interconnected countries in the Balkans, as
well as that of the European continent as a whole. This pipeline
has been the culmination of cooperation and coordinated efforts
between our two governments over the last years. This pipeline as
President Ilham Aliyev pointed out will bring natural gas from
Azerbaijan to Bulgaria” said Mitsotakis.

The prime minister noted that it will break the stranglehold of
Russian gas on Bulgaria and of course, it will in conjunction with
the rest of the infrastructure projects underway in the region
contribute to the development of a reliable natural gas
