Priority gas infrastructure project between BiH and Croatia receives major boost

An EU-funded study, realized with the support and active engagement of the Energy Community Secretariat, has confirmed the financial viability of the south gas interconnector between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia.

This is an important step towards the realisation of the interconnector, the aim of which is to establish a new supply route for Bosnia and Herzegovina resulting in diversified and reliable natural gas supply and to guarantee the security of supply of the Federation, one of the country’s Entities. The project is planned to be commissioned by 2023.

The gas interconnector (Gas_03) received the status of Energy Community Project of Mutual Interest (PMI) in 2016. The Energy Community Secretariat will continue to actively support and engage in the development of gas infrastructure in line with its Gas Action 2020 strategy.

The Secretariat will also continue to monitor the development of the Projects of Energy Community Interest and Projects of Mutual Interest (PECIs and PMIs) in the area of gas and electricity and can be approached by project promoters to assist in further maturing their project plans.
