Joint project company GASTRANS LLC Novi Sad is the procuring entity of the construction project of the transmission of gas pipeline (interconnector) BORDER OF BULGARIA – BORDER OF HUNGARY, on the territory of the Republic of Serbia.
On June 27th, 2017 a Road Map was signed between the Ministry of Mining and Energy and the PAO “Gazprom” on the implementation of the project for construction of gas pipeline on the territory of the Republic of Serbia from the border with the Republic of Bulgaria to the border with Hungary and, if necessary, with the other countries that are bordering with the Republic of Serbia.
The importance of the project
Gas consumption in Serbia is constantly growing, and in the future, the country will need large amounts of gas. In the period from 2014 to 2017, gas supplies to Serbia were increased by 41% in 2018.
The implementation of the project of construction of the main gas pipeline will significantly increase the level of energy security in Serbia and the region as a whole, and also open the possibility for continuation of the process of gasification of the country.
