Alexey Miller (Chairman of the Management Committee of Gazprom) and Temenuzhka Petkova (Minister of Energy of the Republic of Bulgaria) have attended a working meeting at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2017.

The parties discussed the prospects for deeper collaboration in the gas sector, noting that Russian gas exports to Bulgaria had been growing every year since 2013. The positive trend continues this year. In January-May of 2017, gas deliveries to Bulgaria added 14.5% against the same period in 2016. The participants commended Gazprom and Bulgartransgaz for their successful co-operation in ensuring gas transit across Bulgaria to third countries.

In 2016, Gazprom's gas exports to Bulgaria totalled 3.18 billion m3 (a 2.1% increase from 2015).

In the course of the meeting, particular attention was paid to long term arrangements for gas deliveries to Bulgaria. Alexey Miller briefed Temenuzhka Petkova on the progress of the Turkish Stream project, emphasising that the new gas transmission capacities in the Black Sea area would substantially improve the reliability of gas supplies to consumers in southern and southeastern Europe, including Bulgaria.
