IGB construction expected to begin at end of year

Construction of the prospective IGB (Greek-Bulgarian Interconnector) project will begin at the end of this year, officials involved in the project have ascertained.

According to sources, an additional market test aiming to increase the commitment of companies with respect to their pipeline capacity reservations is essentially already underway, despite the fact that the process has yet to be officially launched. Negotiations with gas companies are already being held.

Regardless of the results to be produced by these negotiations, the IGB project is expected to be developed as it ranks as a leading EU infrastructure priority.
