The Balkan Stream project is sometimes referred to as the "Expansion of Bulgartransgaz EAD gas transmission infrastructure in the section from BG-TR to BG-RS" and "Balkan Gas Hub-Necessary expansion of the Bulgarian gas transmission system." It is an extension to the TurkStream gas pipeline, from Russia to Turkey.
In September 2019, Global Business Club reported that construction had begun and 90% of pipes for the Balkan Stream have already been delivered to Bulgaria from Russia.
The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) refers to the project as "TRA-F-592".
