Bulgargaz to try to buy slots for LNG delivery in 2023
After the "lack of slots" for delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at Greece's terminal on the island of Revithoussa became an issue between Bulgaria's previous government and the current caretaker cabinet, now public gas supplier Bulgargaz plans to participate in tenders for capacity at the terminal, the company said.
Bulgargaz executive director Denitsa Zlateva said this morning that there are no free slots at the Greek terminal for October and November, but in October annual capacity reservation tender will be held. The plan is for Bulgargaz to participate and buy LNG supply slots for 2023. After that, the company will invite LNG suppliers to offer LNG quantities for delivery until the end of next year. Zlateva did not specify what these quantities will be.
Caretaker PM Donev urged political parties to look for political opponents different from his cabinet
PM Galab Donev called on political parties to look for election opponents other than the caretaker cabinet. "There are factors in the state that perceive the caretaker government as an opponent in this campaign and want to extract dubious political benefits on our backs. Let me remind you that the caretaker government will not participate in the elections, so it is logical that the parties and coalitions look for opponents elsewhere," he said at the beginning of today's meeting of the Council of Ministers.
Since taking office on August 2, the caretaker government itself, whose main task is to prepare for fair elections, has maintained a critical tone towards the previous government that was ousted in a vote of no-confidence in June.
