North American liquefied natural gas to help out Bulgaria

On the third day of his working visit to the United States, which took place from May 9 to 11, Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov announced that his country would receive North American liquefied natural gas (LNG) for make up for the halt, since the end of April, of deliveries by Gazprom. This announcement, made after his meeting with US Vice President Kamala Harris, is perhaps the “only real news” of this visit, comments the economic weekly Kapital, but it is significant, continues this pro-European liberal magazine.

“In a nutshell, this is great news, and Bulgaria will now be in a much better position than when it relied only on Russian gas,” continues Capital. However, the newspaper notes that “many skeptics in the country question the viability of these deliveries in the long term”.

According to Kiril Petkov, the two countries have agreed to purchase two tankers for the month of June, each capable of transporting 100 million cubic meters of liquefied gas, which will be able to dock in Turkey
