ICGB AD and BULGARTRANSGAZ EAD intend to conclude an interconnection agreement for the Interconnection Point Stara Zagora. Both TSOs invite the network users to comment on the proposed text of:

  • the matching process rules;
  • the rules for the allocation of gas quantities;
  • the communication procedures in case of exceptional events.

ICGB AD and BULGARTRANSGAZ EAD are submitting for public consultation the rules for the matching process and allocation of gas quantities, the communication procedures in case of exceptional events as well as other Network User relevant provisions.

This consultation will run from 25.05.2022 until 15.06.2022.

The public consultation has the aim to collect the opinions from all potential network users regarding the transmission of natural gas through the IP Stara Zagora.

The present Draft Interconnection Agreement envisages the physical flow of natural gas in both directions (from Bulgaria to Greece and from Greece to Bulgaria).

All responses should be submitted to both TSOs in English at: office@icgb.eu and info@bulgartransgaz.bg.

Please indicate explicitly if the responses contain information which is confidential with regard to third parties.

ICGB AD and BULGARTRANSGAZ EAD will evaluate the comments received during the consultation, and if necessary, adjust the text of the draft Interconnection Agreement.

The relevant provisions of the draft Interconnection Agreement between ICGB AD and BULGARTRANSGAZ EAD are available here.

We are looking forward to receiving your opinions.
