The pipeline project will be part of a public tender worth around €145m. The overall costs are expected to be around €220m. Construction is scheduled to take 18 months to complete. The 183 km pipeline, with a capacity of 3 billion cubic meters per year, will connect the Greek gas transmission system in the Komotini area with the Bulgarian system in the Stara Zagora area.
