Bulgaria to get gas from US in June at a lower price than what was offered to Gazprom

The Sofia government announced on Wednesday that Bulgaria would receive liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States from June. Reuters. According to Bulgarian officials, it will be cheaper than Casprom.

90% of Bulgaria’s natural gas is imported from Russia. On April 27, Gasprom suspended gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria, with both countries failing to pay rubles for fuel supplies. Bulgaria consumes about three billion cubic meters of gas annually.

The Sofia executive said the agreement to get Bulgaria liquefied natural gas from the United States was agreed upon during a meeting between Prime Minister Krill Petkov and US Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington.

“LNG deliveries to Bulgaria at a lower price than Gazprom will begin in June, according to the agreement,” Bulgarian officials said, without further details, quoted by Reuters by Agerpres.

Bulgaria has expedited talks with Azerbaijan to increase gas supplies and is seeking deals with liquefied natural gas terminals with Greece and Turkey. In addition, Sofia has called for more joint gas purchase prices across the European Union to become more competitive.
