Bulgaria completed construction of its section of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline
Bulgaria has completed the construction of a section of the Balkan Stream gas pipeline on its territory, connecting it with a gas pipeline in Serbia. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source involved in the construction.


According to the source, the construction of the Bulgarian section of the Turkish Stream is completed, it is connected to the Serbian branch of the gas pipeline. No official celebrations on this matter are planned yet due to the second wave of coronavirus.

The Balkan Stream is completed, it is connected to a gas pipeline in Serbia, there are no official events in connection with the completion of the pipeline due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ceremony is likely to take place later

- the agency leads the words of the source.

With the implementation of the Balkan Stream project, Bulgaria will turn into a regional strategic gas distribution center and guarantee the diversification of gas supplies

- said earlier the Prime Minister of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov.

The Balkan Stream is actually a continuation of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, which will go through the territory of Bulgaria to the southern European countries. Moreover, the gas pipeline in Serbia, through which gas was to be further distributed, was built at the end of last year. Gas supplies were hampered by problems in the construction of the Bulgarian section.

Let us remind you that the official launch of the Turkish Stream took place on January 8, 2020, in fact, gas went through both strings of the pipeline even earlier. The gas pipeline was fully filled with gas in mid-November 2019.

          You have a winter on the nose, gas heating is cheaper, especially at such prices.

          In terms of price, the most expensive heating is electricity, followed by gas, pellets, coal and firewood. But there is no doubt that gas heating is the most convenient from the point of view of comfort. I set up a thermal sensor and that's it. good Our winters are not so cold, and besides, they are short. hi The advantage of electricity is that in hot summer, you can use an air conditioner for cooling.

              This is probably the case in Russia. I really haven't checked what the difference in prices is due to the gas price drop. With pellets, we have a disadvantage - different types, boilers of different standards. Also, pellets must be ordered in advance, carried, unloaded, etc. There is a familiar farmer who produces pellets from the remains of sunflower seeds. Sells the appropriate boilers and guarantees the supply of pellets for them. Earns good money, and at the same time implements technological waste. hi

                Maybe someday pellets will become cheaper, but so far they are 3-4 times more expensive than coal. And if we take the cost of gas (heating) and coal, they are almost the same.

                You are right, and ... unknowingly raised questions to the Ross. country !!! Why, when the EC's demands became known, and Bulgaria proposed a solution to Gazprom, it did not accept it? The proposal provided for the transfer of UP shares to companies formally NOT associated with Gazprom and Bulgargaz! In fact, this is the current Balkan stream! They've built it, all the rules, gas from Gazprom will be transported according to it! Why then did the Kremlin blame the Bulgarians without making any effort to start looking for a solution? Not for the fact that, as Gazprom itself admitted, it had a hole, a lack of fin. resources for all giga projects? And so it is very easy to blame someone else, Gazprom has a powerful propaganda resource! hi

      This cunning scheme, the Bulgarian side proposed to Gazprom, even during the South Stream, as soon as the EC announced its restrictions! The "great managers" of the super company then refused and made a strategic mistake ... For the second time, at the beginning of 2018, this scheme was proposed by the Bulgarian Prime Minister to GDP. The proposal provided for TP rods directly to the Bulgarian coast, bypassing the Turkish one. Then we almost agreed, but did not reach an agreement on the entry point - Burgas or Varna. GDP again made a miscalculation ... And what do we see now, 5 years after the termination / from the Ross.storone / UP? Repetition of this project taking into account the requirements of the EC! Balkan Stream is a spear, reduced in value! It was built by Ross. companies as subcontractors of the fictitious Saudi-Italion consortium! Gazprom has booked a large amount of years in the future, and the banks from overseas finance the project. All ok, everyone is happy. hi

        Boyan, hello! How are you fighting the virus there in Bulgaria? Are there any restrictions? How did it go in March or was it easier?
        Listen, are you constantly writing about the fictitious "General Contractor" Arkad? Where are the "firewoods" from?
        On April 3, 2019, Bulgartransgaz announced the successful completion of the public procurement for the selection of the Contractor under an open procedure in accordance with the Public Procurement Law (PPA) No. 180-100 entitled “Purchase of the necessary materials and equipment, investment design - detailed design stage, construction and commissioning of the project: expansion of the gas transportation infrastructure of the Bulgartransgaz BAA in parallel with the northern (main) gas pipeline to the Bulgarian-Serbian border ", stage:" Linear part ".
        Three consortia participated in the tender:
        - Consortium DZZD GDEB,
        - Hungarian Association OT Industries Fovallkozo Zrt., OT Industries - KVV Kivitelezo Zrt,
        - The Arkad Consortium.
        Eligible for participation - DZZD GDEB and Arkad.
        The Arkad consortium, including the Saudi Arkad Engineering & Construction Company and the Italian Arkad ABB SpA, was named the winner of the competition.

        Arkad's offer included the lowest prices for fulfillment in both 250 days and 615 days.
        Thank you all, everyone is free, Bulgartransgaz said cheerfully then, but he was in a hurry.
        The intrigue did not end then.
        The consortium did not have time to submit documents either by the statutory deadline or the requested extended deadline.
        Arkad provided only 4 of the 30 required documents.
        Nevertheless Customer represented by Bulgartransgaz chose ARKAD !?
        The competition was delayed, there was a delay in time and a delay in the construction schedule. Only the delay played into the hands of the Amers and it did not allow the Balkan stream to be completed on time, and as a result, the signing of a transit agreement with the outskirts !!!
        The inhabitants are plagued by vague doubts that Arkad's participation was not at all to win the competition, but only to delay.
        It was built by Ross. companies as subcontractors of the fictitious Saudi-Italion consortium!

        When the goal was achieved and the commissioning deadline was disrupted, why not hire Russian subcontractors because they are the "cheapest" on the market?
        We come to the conclusion that with the hands of Bulgartransgaz, the "hands" of the Bulgarian government, read Boyko Borisov, and it was not in vain that he went to consult the amers, the political goal was achieved, to extend the time of Gazprom's use of the Okrainskaya GTS !!!!

          Hi Vyacheslav! hi The situation is getting worse with the corona virus! In the afternoon, we broke the sad record for mortality from this damned infection! A hundred people died in 24 days! Restrictions are being introduced, the problem is that few people comply with them! People have dispersed, they don't want to listen! I see many who do not care about the problem!
          As for Arkad, behind them is clearly a motley conglomerate, in which Ross has a weighty participation. factors ... I suspect that everything is being done in agreement with Russia. All the hype about mutual recriminations was most likely dust for misleading Americans! At the very site, Ross. firms and workers! I communicate with him, because I know Russian.
          As for being late from the construction schedule, keep in mind that some of the workers came from Russia with the corona virus! They were treated in the hospital in Shumen! Whole brigades were quarantined! One Italian died, others had to be sent to their countries. I have personally seen the rulers taking workers off the site! A real problem has arisen! There is nothing to find fault with!

          This is an ego problem! Why does he need a harem, is he already aged !? lol And the valve, like the pipe in the Turkish territory, belongs to Gazprom.

                Let me explain - you write that Erdogan is an ungrateful (dangerous) partner, but at the same time you are sure that in Turkey the valve and pipe belong and WILL belong to Gazprom. But in the USA, for example, they did not hesitate to take away the diplomatic property of the Russian Federation. Catch the difference, DIP. property and some sort of Gazprom, and even on the territory of the frostbitten sultan. You can expect anything from him, so don't be under the delusion that everything will be smooth, Ukraine as an example ..

                  Dear Alexey hi , we misunderstood! In a normal situation, subject to the agreements, these tens of kilometers of pipe on the territory of Turkey should function without problems. But with extreme development, everything is possible! For example, Erdogan may enter into a serious conflict with Russia, but blocking the pipe means almost war! When it works, everyone benefits! Turks know their benefits, they do not like to lose money. The US can take someone else's property, and the Turks? If so, then probably in the most extreme cases, when "bombs start to fall", and then it is not clear what you shave them out with ?! request With all that, I think that GDP has a strategic mistake building a pipe through Turkey. The long-term interests of the Russian Federation and Turkey are diverging, and the pipe ... this is for a long time ... hi

          Poisonous / impure /, as they are considered by prof. organizers of the rally, for which the oligarch Vasil Bozhkov is sitting. Ego is looking for the prosecutor's office, and he hid in the UAE. There were no casualties during the protests.
          And the ruling circles dealt with you nicely, did not disperse you, but allowed you to protest, only according to the rules.

          The authorities did not disperse the rallies. Fine. In general, everything went quite calmly for the Bulgarian realities.
          J. Hasek has a story ...

          There is always a powerful parliamentary and extra-parliamentary opposition in Bulgaria. No one has a monopoly over power. State media only 2. So, no one can censor anyone.
          The current premier Borisov, in the past, has filed for abandonment twice in connection with protests, on one or another occasion. He is ready now, but it makes no sense, since we have elections next year.

    there are no official events in connection with the completion of the gas pipeline
    Even if there was no pandemic, the solemn events from the Bulgarian side are not appropriate. South Stream was pumped to please the Americans. Did you get a lot from them for that? Shish. With this branch, everyone stretched out the deadlines, listening to what the EU and the United States would say, and suddenly they would have to refuse again. If you do not have sovereignty, do not poke your nose into big projects.

      The branch was built by Ross. subcontractors, in fact. I talked with Ross every day. specialists for the site. Unfortunately, there were cases of the coronavirus among them, whole brigades were quarantined. And the Saudi-Italian consrtium is a screen, a mask.

      To block it, of course ... but an agreement has been concluded with Gazprom for the reservation of capacities according to EU rules, and if you block it, you will pay a penalty (courts are such courts, but ...). And then the Bulgarians build it at their own expense on credit (the cost was estimated at about 1,4 billion euros) must be given from something ...
      As an example - on Thursday, July 9, 2020 Bulgartransgaz announced that it received 10 offers from banks with the provision of such a loan from ING Bank, Citibank Europe, International Bank for Economic Co-operation, VTB Bank Europe, as well as the Bulgarian branches of Raiffeisen, Unicredit, KBC Group, Eurobank and OTP Bank. The offered interest rates vary for each of the 6 years of the loan from 1,35% to 3,5%.

        They blocked the construction of the Belene NPP, the Trans-Balkansky pipeline (Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline), the South Stream, all projects that are extremely beneficial for Bulgaria, from the economic point of view.

          Come on, tell you!

          I try, because I see that you do not know at all! And I personally participate in both projects. hi And what you do not know, I will explain further:
          Blocked the construction of the Belene NPP ...

          Who was blocking? The project has risen in price by 30 times in 7 years! 10 billion dollars !!! In 2013, a nationwide referendum was held! The adherents of continuing construction, failed to collect the required interest! Construction was temporarily suspended. in 2019, BAN issued a report proving the need for new energy capacities, and the project was resumed. At the moment, tenders are held, and even alternative options are developed, such as a set of mini-nuclear units.
          Trans-Balkan pipeline (Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline) ...

          There was a problem with environmental assessment. The fact is that the pipe had to pass through eco-reserves near Burgas. By the way, the same problem arose from the original version of the UP, it initially passed through the whole of this zone, starting from the coast of Burgas. That the problem is serious, you can look again at Burgas, where Lukoil has an oil refinery. And these areas are unique for Bulgaria.
          "South Stream", all projects are extremely beneficial for Bulgaria, from the economic point of view.

          South Stream was absolutely unprofitable for Bulgaria, in view of the EC sanctions. Fines and other restrictions made it unprofitable. I personally participated from the Bulgarian side on this project. I know what I'm talking about. hi

First contract for the construction of the station was signed by Rosatom represented by Atomstroyexport and NEC Bulgaria in 2008, the construction cost of the station was 4 billion euros.

            Are you saying that for 2 VVER-1000 reactors, the Russians asked $ 28 billion?

            You know, and Reuters didn't even mention environmental issues, a paradox ........
            The Bulgarian government decided to abandon the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline construction project, considering it economically unjustified. The corresponding statement was made today by the Minister of Finance of the country Simeon Dyankov, reports Reuters

              In the 80s, when the project was laid, it was estimated at $ 1,5 billion. Nowadays, it is estimated at $ 10 billion. Part of it is completed, but much still needs to be completed, and the whole project will have to be updated, because it was designed in the mid-80s! This is already in progress, tenders are held in the moment.
              You know, and Reuters didn't even mention environmental issues, a paradox ........

              I don’t know what Reuters composes, but I personally deal with such matters in the service. The southeastern coastal region of Bulgaria / Burgas and to the south / continuous eco-zones, reserves, unique bio-diversity. For so many years, not a single environmental expert has given permission to build a structure of this type.
              You probably don't know, but not only the B-A pipeline was going to hold there! The first version of South Stream had an entry point into this region. Ecoexpertiza did not agree, and the second option was moved to the north near Varna! On the Balkan Stream, Borisov and Putin were in talks in March 2019, about turning the pipe directly to Bulgaria / bypassing Turkey /. Putin proposed Burgas as an entry point, Borisov - Varna, due to economic norms. Putin did not agree, since this lengthened / and increased the cost / of the sea part of the route, it was necessary to do a new survey of the seabed. Regretfully, they did not agree.
              I don’t even say anything, I just don’t have enough words. Turkey is profitable, but Bulgaria is not? And what kind of battles are going on for SP-2, Poland and Ukraine are also profitable

              It is strange that it is difficult for you to understand, such a simple matter! One and the same can be beneficial for one country and unprofitable for another! Listen ... Bulgaria is an EU member! Turkey is not a member of the EU, it has different laws! If the UP were built in violation of euronorms, there would be large / hundreds of thousands of euros / fines, blocking of funds, sanctions! The damage to the Bulgarian economy would be catastrophic! And besides, the flow would not work, then again the territory of the EU! It would be a pipe to nowhere. So the benefits and losses depend on the specific situation!

      Gazprom has already booked transit. Turkey does not decide anything, this short section of the TP, passing through its territory, is owned by Gazprom. Gazprom will only spend transit taxes.
