Bulgaria pursues a double strategy. On the one side, the South Stream pipeline lowers the gas price in the next ten years. On the other side, Nabucco should reduce the dependence on Russian natural gas. According to Bulgaria´s government, the construction of the pipeline project should begin as soon as possible.

Bulgaria´s Prime Minister Rosen Plevneliev explained that Nabucco is very important for the country. Bulgaria wants to connect its gas network with the pipelines in Romania, Greece and Turkey.

The new Nabucco project should start at the Turkish-Bulgarian frontier. The pipeline with a length of 1,300 km should bring natural gas to Austria. Between the Bulgarian border and the gas fields in Azerbaijan, Nabucco´s partner project TANAP will operate the pipelines.
