After numerous delays extending literally for years, a 182 km new gas pipeline connection between Greece and Bulgaria appears to be moving forward.

With an estimated value of €60 million, ICGB, the project company for the interconnection, has published a public procurement contract for the project's pipelines.
The aim of ICGB is to connect the gas networks of both countries at the points of Komotini and Stara Zagora. The choice of builder will be a separate procedure that will be launched in early 2018.

The ICGB is an integral part of the plans for the Vertical Gas Corridor that will transport North Sea gas across the territories of Greece, Bulgaria and Romania, as well as plans to receive gas from the Caspian region (through the TAR pipeline) and the realization of the idea for the Balkan gas hub.
