The Energy and Water Regulatory Commission considers that, as of 1 October, the new rules for the entry and exit tariff model for transmission and capacity of the gas transmission system, proposed by Bulgartransgaz earlier this year, should come into force.

In the words of the Chairman of EWRC, Assoc. Ptof. Ivan Ivanov: “Bulgaria is the last country in the EU that has not introduced this model”. According to him, the introduction of the model would strengthen Bulgaria’s position as “a country claiming to host the gas hub “Balkan”.
