PODCAST: Bulgarian energy developments in doubt as country gears for new elections

Aura Sabadus


LONDON (ICIS)— In 2022, when Gazprom stopped supplies to Bulgaria, the country switched at short notice from nearly full dependence on Russian gas to complete diversification. It commissioned a new interconnector with Greece, tapped LNG imports and ramped up off-takes of Caspian gas. More recently it signed a deal for access to Turkey’s infrastructure, which could open up a new supply route to southeast Europe.

However, Luka Dimitrov, senior energy journalist focusing on southeast Europe tells regional gas market specialist Aura Sabadus that the political instability combined with a number of controversial measures taken in recent weeks raise concerns about the future of Bulgaria’s energy sector and that of the entire region.
