Bulgarian PM Declares Burgas-Alexandroupolis Oil Pipeline Dead

Date: 26.07.2010

There is no way that the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project can be realized, according to Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.

“The position of our government is clear – we need to see the international environmental assessment,” Borisov said Sunday night while also explaining that there is no way that the assessment will be positive.

“If I pull Bulgaria out of the project, we are going to have to pay all penalties, and Prime Minister Papandeou of Greece and Putin will be mad at us. Once the environmental assessment comes out, we will be able to pull out withoutto bear all negatives for killing the project,” explained the Prime Minister.

He is convinced that the environmental assessment of the Burgas-Alexandroupolis project, a pipeline, which is supposed to transfer Russian and Caspian gas from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean by going around the Turkish straits, will not be positive because the route of the pipe is planned to go through protected areas from the NATURA 2000 network.
