The project is worth about $453 million, according to the Greek prime minister.

“Thanks to these investments, Alexandroupoli opens its gates to liquid natural gas from various suppliers, including the U.S.,” Mitsotakis added.

The Alexandroupoli terminal is scheduled for launch in late 2022-early 2023.

Its main suppliers are said to be companies from the U.S., Qatar, and other countries.
The move by Bulgaria is part of the efforts it is making to move away from its almost complete dependence on gas from Russia.
