DESFA to supervise construction of natural gas interconnector section in North Macedonia

The Hellenic Gas Transmission System Operator (DESFA) will supervise the construction of the natural gas interconnector linking Greece with North Macedonia in the section of the neighboring country, following a government agreement signed in March 2021.

The contract was signed on Wednesday between DESFA and Nomagas, the state natural gas distribution company of North Macedonia after winning an international tender in which 4 companies participated. European Investment Bank will fund the project with 2.475 billion euros.

The pipeline section in North Macedonia will have a length of 68 km, part of an 123-km interconnector project which will be ready by the end of 2024.
