Background

In July of 2018, Russia resumed the pipe laying operations for the second string of the offshore TurkStream Gas Pipeline, which aims to deliver gas to southern and southeastern Europe.[1] Russia's Energy Minister Alexander Novak announced that the TurkSream 2 Gas Pipeline will run through Bulgaria, Serbia, and Hungary.[2]

Bulgaria is considering joining Russia's TurkStream 2 pipeline proposal and, according to the country's Ministry of Energy, is ready to invest €1.4 billion ($1.6 billion) in the project. However, its completion is dependent on approval from the necessary authorities, including the European Commission. Experts have already expressed doubts over whether the pipeline will be profitable, and in fact, only the third market test was successful.[3]
