Negotiations for gas between Bulgaria and Turkiye are progressing

Negotiations on the supply, transit and purchase of gas with Turkiye are progressing extremely quickly. This became clear from the meeting of the Minister of Energy Rosen Hristov with the management of the Turkish state energy company Botash, which took place on Saturday.

A day earlier, he spoke with his Turkish colleague Fatih Dönmez, at whose invitation Hristov attended the opening of the largest gas storage facility in Europe, located near Istanbul. Next week, the main parameters of a long-term contract for terminal capacity in Turkiye and one in the Botash transmission network are expected to be finalized.

Minister Hristov was accompanied by the directors of “Bulgargaz” – Denitsa Zlateva, of “Bulgartransgaz” – Vladimir Malinov, as well as the head of the political cabinet Lyubomira Gancheva.

This is the second meeting held by the two countries after President Rumen Radev paid an official visit to Turkey on December 9 at the invitation of his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The two discussed a number of issues, including cooperation in the fields of economy, energy, migration and security, transport connectivity between the two countries.
