Greece and the countries and companies involved in the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Alexandroupolis have agreed to set the end of 2018 as the target date for the start of the terminal at a meeting in Thessaloniki on Monday, ahead of the ceremony launching the construction of the Greek section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP).

According to sources, the meeting between Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis with Bulgarian counterpart Temenuzhka Petkova and the representatives of Greek state gas supplier DEPA, Gastrade, a subsidiary of Copelouzos group, U.S. natural gas exporter Cheniere Energy, and Bulgaria’s Bulgartransgaz, Bulgargaz and Bulgarian Energy Holding, agreed to set up working groups that will determine the next steps on the project.

The construction of the LNG terminal is directly linked with the Interconnector Greece – Bulgaria (IGB) both technically and in terms of the timeframe.
