Gas Interconnector Serbia – Bulgaria

The new gas interconnector will connect the city of Niš with the Bulgarian capital Sofia. The projected capacity of this new gas pipeline will allow flow of 1.8 billion cubic metres of natural gas annually. Finalisation of the pipeline construction is planned for Q4/2023.

With its projected capacity the new gas pipeline will provide additional 60% capacity increase relative to Serbia’s current annual gas needs (approx. 2.4 bcm/y) and largely increase the overall security of natural gas supply and contribute to cleaner energy targets.

The new Niš-Sofia gas pipeline (together with the new pipeline under construction between Greece and Bulgaria) will diversify energy sources in Serbia and the Western Balkan region.  It will thus also reduce dependency on one dominant supplier. The other sources could include the LNG (liquefied natural gas) from Greece and Azeri gas coming through the TANAP (Turkey) and TAP (Greece) pipelines.
