South Stream: Negotiations Will Continue
March 7, 2016 10:33


Bulgaria began to think about the resumption of negotiations on the “South Stream” project. This was told to the journalists by the Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia Yuri Sentyurin, as TASS reports.

“I know that the Bulgarian partners actively raise the question of resuming negotiations on “South Stream”. At least, this information comes to our Ministry” - the official said. According to him, “active negotiations with the Southern European countries are being held”. “It is obvious that they need gas. The negotiations are based on economic feasibility. Specialists calculate every opportunity” - “Interfax” quoted the words of Sentyurin.

At the beginning of January 2016 the Bulgarian mass media published information about the possible resumption of “South Stream”. Then the “Standard” newspaper referring to the experts pointed out that work on the project could be resumed within several weeks. However, the information that appeared in the media was denied by the Kremlin; and the Russian Energy Ministry stressed that the work on the project had been stopped.

In February a proposal for the “South Stream” resumption was considered by the Bulgarian MPs. However, the initiative did not find any support. In December, 2014 Moscow refused to construct the gas pipeline “South Stream” which was supposed to link Russia and Bulgaria. The decision was announced six months later, after the Bulgarian government under the guidance of Plamen Oresharski decided to stop the work on the project.
