The independent transmission operator ICGB and the licensed gas distribution operator for the territory of the municipality of Kardzhali "Citigas Bulgaria" EAD concluded an Agreement for joining the gas transmission network of ICGB

The contract regulates the physical connection of the networks of the two operators, which will allow access to the commercial and domestic consumers of the region to another source of supply of natural gas. This will increase security of supply and ensure the ability to diversify sources of supply.

The connection of the networks of ICGB and "Citigas Bulgaria" EAD will be completed in the next two months through the construction of specialized facilities for the purpose. The ICGB network is already successfully connected to the existing network of Bulgartransgaz EAD and the Trans-Adriatic Gas Pipeline.

In this way, as of February 1, 2023, a technical possibility will be provided for gas users in the Kardzhali region to be supplied with quantities transported via the Greece-Bulgaria interconnector.

The IGB gas pipeline has a strong regional significance, as it creates the possibility of access to a gas transmission network for several Bulgarian municipalities and regions, which until now did not have a connectivity option. The operator of the ICGB facility provides full cooperation to all interested parties regarding the provision of access to the interconnector in accordance with European, Bulgarian and Greek legislation.
