The natural gas pipeline linking Romania to neighboring Bulgaria will likely be operational in June (one year later than initially announced) Bulgaria’s Energy Minister Dragomir Stoynev said Wednesday.

Speaking at a conference on natural gas, Stoynev said that the gas interconnector with Romania was delayed because of technical problems, according to a statement published on the Ministry’s website.

“This gas connection is expected to be operational in June,” the statement read.

In early-January, gas transmission operator Bulgartransgaz announced that “the interconnection between Bulgariaand  Romania will be commissioned in the first quarter of 2014 and the foreseen date for beginning commercial operation will be the end of March 2014”.

Sources in Romania from Transgaz then said that the gas connection will become operational  in April.
