Bulgaria has sent a request to reserve capacity at the Revythoussa liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal operated by Greek natural gas transmission system operator DESFA, in order to secure quantities of natural gas in case of a disruption of the supply from Russia.

Greece might agree to this proposal, as planned LNG cargoes for the Greek market, combined with the existing energy reserves, will suffice to cover the country’s consumption needs.

The Greek system is connected with that of Bulgaria at Sidirokastro, the point at which Russian natural gas is imported into Greece, where there is also the option of countercurrent flows to supply Bulgaria.
