Ukraine hopes to receive Azeri natural gas via Bulgaria and Romania

Ukraine hopes to receive Azeri natural gas via Bulgaria and Romania, President Poroshenko said Tuesday at the opening in Turkey of the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline, or TANAP. The $8 billion, 1,850-kilometer TANAP will transport gas of Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz 2 field from Turkey’s eastern border with Georgia to the Turkey’s western border. There, it forks, with one pipeline going to Greece and the other to Bulgaria. With Ukrainians worried that Russia could slash gas supplies in 2020, Poroshenko said: “Ukraine fully supports this project…we would be glad to diversify our energy sources and receive gas from TANAP via Bulgaria and Romania.”
