Moldova Gas Blast Won't Affect Supplies to Bulgaria

Date: 11.11.2009

The blast that ripped one of the trunk gas pipelines, supplying Russian gas to the Balkans, in southern Moldova on Sunday morning will not hurt the supplies to Bulgaria, the energy ministry announced.

Supplies of Russian gas to Balkan consumers is continuing through other routes, said government spokesman Igor Volnitsky.

"Gas is flowing to the Balkans at the same levels as before," he said, adding that the pipeline would be repaired within 72 hours.

The explosion took place at 04.30 local time five kilometres away from the village of Saitsy, bordering Ukraine’s Odessa Region, damaging one of the three runs piping gas.

This is the second blast this year on the Russian gas pipeline, supplying gas to the Balkans via Moldova. An explosion in a gas pipeline in the separatist Moldovan region of Transdniestria in April caused a sharp in supplies to Turkey and Bulgaria.
