Russian gas company Gazprom announced last week that it was reducing supplies through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline for technical reasons
The small, in length, but strategically important IGB pipeline, which connects the Bulgarian system with the Greek natural gas transmission system and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), will start commercial operation, next month, in July. Today (17 June) the pipeline will undergo final testing with the introduction of the last quantities of 1.5 million cubic meters of gas.
The Energy and Water Regulatory Commission approved the price of natural gas, as of June 1, 2022, in the amount of BGN 141.36 / MWh (excluding prices for access, transmission, excise and VAT). At this price, Bulgargaz will sell natural gas to the final suppliers of natural gas and to persons who have been issued a license for production and transmission of heat.
The price of natural gas in Bulgaria in June will be lower than in May.
This became clear after the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (EWR) published the proposal of the state supplier Bulgargaz, proposing that the price of gas for June be BGN 141.28 / MWh.
For May, EWRC approved the price of natural gas of BGN 162.17 / MWh.
