The project “South Stream” on the territory of Bulgaria is the ground part of the whole pipeline system. Its length on Bulgarian land is expected to be 540.8 km. The Bulgarian section of the pipeline is the transition part going to the countries of Central and Southern Europe.
The economic impact of the construction of the pipeline in Bulgaria will strengthen the stability and energy sector and improve energy infrastructure. In terms of social impact, it will create new jobs during construction and during the continued operation of the pipeline. The positive environmental impacts will be expressed in the reduction of pollutant carbon emissions and greenhouse gases.
