Bulgaria takes 20% stake in Greek LNG terminal

Monday, 01 February 2021 | 13:00

Bulgaria’s state gas company Bulgartransgaz has finalised a deal to take 20% of Greek company Gastrade, which is developing a floating LNG facility off the city of Alexandroupolis, Gastrade said.

The deal is part of Bulgaria’s strategy to diversify and to decrease its dependence on Russian gas. The deal has been approved by Bulgaria’s competition regulator.

The LNG terminal, which will have an estimated annual capacity of about 5.5 billion cubic metres (bcm), will aim to supply gas to southeastern Europe via the Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria (IGB) pipeline.

Greek gas utility DEPA and GasLog also hold 20% stakes in the LNG facility which is expected to begin operating in 2023.
