According to, today it became clear that Azerbaijani gas will be delivered to Bulgaria on July 1st. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Bulgaria – Kiril Petkov, who takes part in the blitz control to inform the parliament about the government’s measures against inflation and a sharp rise in prices for basic goods, food and services.

The first questions to the prime minister were about energy. Petkov was asked about the latest actions of the government in connection with the energy crisis.

“The good news today is that until now it was tied to the implementation of the Greek connection, so that we would have supplies of Azerbaijani gas, will no longer be a fact. We will be able to receive the entire volume of Azerbaijani gas before the connection is completed, already on July 1,” Kiril Petkov said.

He noted that the connection through Nea Mesemvria gives us a full opportunity to import Azerbaijani gas.

“The connection gives us a full opportunity to import the entire volume of Azerbaijani gas. So diversification is possible and governments do not yet have the desire for this diversification,” he added.

“This shows that when there is a real desire for diversification and a real desire for diversification, our partners are ready to lend a helping hand,” Kiril Petkov said.

We managed to agree on very good prices for the supply of liquefied natural gas from the United States, the Prime Minister confirmed to the deputies.

“The price is lower than that of Gazprom, and it will be a direct delivery from an American company. There is an agreement between Bulgargaz and an American company,” Kiril Petkov said, without specifying what kind of company it was.

He assured that both agreed gas carriers would be delivered and introduced into the energy system of Bulgaria at a price lower than that of Gazprom.

When asked about the state’s reaction to the suspension of Russian oil imports, the prime minister said that our country depends on Russian oil, but the government is in constant contact with Lukoil, which assures us that we will not run out of fuel.
