The price of Azerbaijani natural gas supplied to Bulgaria is four times lower than the cost of Russian, Chairman of the Commission for Energy and Water Regulation of Bulgaria Ivan Ivanov said, Trend  reports citing Naviny.

Ivanov said that Bulgaria imports from Azerbaijan only 350 million cubic meters of gas out of the agreed 1 billion cubic meters per year.

Now Azerbaijani gas is supplied to Bulgaria through the existing line with a capacity of 3.68 billion cubic meters per year at the Kula-Sidirokastro border point with Greece.

Azerbaijani gas supplies via the 878-kilometer TAP gas pipeline to consumers in Italy, Greece and Bulgaria began on December 31, 2020.
