Spokesman for Specific Energy Union Projects of the European Commission Jakub Adamowicz said that the completion of gas interconnection with Greece and Romania should be a priority for Bulgaria.
Adamowicz also said that Bulgarian Balkan gas hub project will not get support from the EU in short term, adding that Bulgaria has to go through the list of EU Projects of Common Interest (PCI). He stressed that gas interconnectors have to be operational and able to conduct reverse flows, which is very important from the perspective of flexibility, as it provides guarantees of supply. Only after that, the EU believes that projects which are not included in the PCI list could begin to be built, Adamowicz concluded.
