Bulgaria has requested a two-week delay to finalising a deal with Cheniere Energy for the delivery of LNG according to caretaker energy minister Rossen Hristov on Tuesday.
- The postponement is necessary so Bulgaria can negotiate slots for offloading LNG tankers at the Revithoussa terminal in Greece. If they fail to obtain the delay the offer will fall through.
- The binding offer from Cheniere is for seven LNG tankers, three of which to be delivered in 2022 with the first due in October. The original deadline for signing a deal is August 19.
