Background

In December 2016 a pre-feasibility study was conducted to expand the pipeline's capacity from 1.8 bcm to 3.2 bcm.[2] The expansion was permitted in November 2018 and is scheduled to be commissioned in 2022.[3] According to the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) Ten Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP), the Gorni Bogrov–Novi Iskar Pipeline is a part of the "modernization and rehabilitation of the Bulgarian GTS" (known as "TRA-F-298"). ENTSOG states that the modernization and rehabilitation project is expected to be commissioned in 2024.[4]

The expansion project is listed as a European Project of Common Interest (PCI) and can therefore qualify for public grant funding from the EU. The project falls under PCI 6.8.2: Rehabilitation, modernization and expansion of the Bulgarian transmission system.[5]
