Bulgaria has energy agreements with Egypt, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan

Jan 29, 2009 01:00 AM

The Bulgarian government has signed principle gas agreements with Egypt, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan as of 2008.
These three nations alone can supply Sofia with 4 bn cm of gas annually, which more than meets the country's demand, Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov was quoted as saying on Jan. 29.

Bulgaria intends to increase its energy-supply sources. Parvanov spoke about the Nabucco gas pipeline, which will transport Central Asian and Caspian gas to Western Europe avoiding Russia.
"Bulgaria has a role as a transit country in the project," Parvanov said.

Sofia intends to launch reactors at the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant to reduce dependence on natural gas in 2009, he added. The plant was suspended when the EU voiced anxiety about the facility's safety.
"The condition of the nuclear power plant meets the requirements of the International Atomic Energy Agency, so we hope the European Commission will agree with our decision," Parvanov said.
