Bulgarian natural gas transmission system operator announced that it has awarded 1.2 million euros worth contract for the development of a feasibility study for the Balkan gas hub project to a consortium of a local EMF Consult and Swiss AF Consult.
The company said in the statement, that both the second and third placed bidders have offered lower prices, but their bids were ranked lower due to a worse score on technical criteria. The goal of this feasibility study is to assess the commercial and technical viability of the project and the risks associated with its implementation. The project is being co-funded under the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), which will cover 50 % of the cost of the feasibility study. The deadline for submitting offers is 1 November 2017.
