SOFIA, April 4 (Itar-Tass) — The government of Bulgaria on Wednesday declared the section of the Nabucco gas pipeline that will go across Bulgaria a facility of national importance, the government information service reported after a session of the Cabinet of Ministers.

Thus, administrative procedures necessary to get permission for the construction of a pipeline section in Bulgaria will be facilitated in the implementation of the pipeline project.

“This decision was made in conformity with the main aims of Bulgarian energy policy, which consist in increasing competition on energy markets with preservation of the environment during supplies of energy resources, as well as in constructing energy infrastructure with an emphasis on diversification of gas deliveries and routes,” the press service noted.

The Nabucco gas pipeline will be about 4,000 kilometers long and is expected to run from the Caspian region to Austria via Turkey and Southeastern Europe. The consortium which deals with the implementation of the project includes Austrian OMV, Hungarian MOL, Romanian Transgaz, Bulgarian Energy Holding, Turkish Botas and German RWE.
