EIA approved for Gas Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria project
The 182km-long IGB pipeline will connect Komotini (north-eastern Greece) and Stara Zagora (Bulgaria). It is estimated to cost about €220m, of which €45m will be financed through the European Energy Programme for Recovery (EEPR). It was also included by the European Commission in a proposal to the European Parliament for funding through the Projects of Common Interest (PCI) programme, a final decision on which is expected by mid-2014. Construction should start in autumn 2014 and the commissioning is expected in early 2016.
