Rehabilitation and Partial Replacement

In January 2019 the European Union awarded €27 million to Bulgartransgaz for the rehabilitation and partial replacement of the pipeline.[5] According to the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) Ten Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP), the Beglej-Dermantsi-Batultsi-Kalugerovo Pipeline update is a part of the "modernization and rehabilitation of the Bulgarian GTS" (known as "TRA-F-298").

Bulgartransgaz 2020-2029 TYNDP states it is "envisaged that the construction will take place in the period 2020-2021."[4]

ENTSOG states that the modernization and rehabilitation project is expected to be commissioned in 2024.[6]
