SOFIA, December 30. /TASS/. Russian company Gazprom Export stops supplies of gas to household customers in Bulgaria as of Friday, January 1, Jacquelin Cohen, the CEO of the Bulgarian Energy Holding EAD said on Wednesday.
He said in an interview with the national television that Gazprom Export had no plans to deliver gas to its Bulgarian partner, Overgaz, as of January 1, as followed from an official letter the Bulgarian side received on Thursday.
The problem might have a bearing on about 200,000 household customers who consume 1.5 million cubic meters (mcm) of the fuel. Bulgaria’s average consumption stands at 11 mcm to 13 mcm.
The BEH will have an opportunity to make up for this shortage of gas by using fuel from the reserves, Cohen said in a comment on an emergency meeting that Prime Minister Bojko Borisov had earlier on the same day with the heads of the country’s energy companies.
At the time of reporting, comments on the situation from Gazprom Export were not available.
