A gas pipeline between Greece and Bulgaria, which will transport Azerbaijani gas to Bulgaria, has hit another delay and will not become operational until June 2022, the head of the Bulgarian energy regulator said on Wednesday, APA-Economics reports citing Reuters.

The coronavirus pandemic and need for additional environmental assessment for a crossing under a dam in the Bulgarian stretch had delayed the construction of the pipeline, the ICGB company, which runs the project, has said.

"We have given our consent to the request of the ICGB to extend the deadline for the start of operations of the IGB to June 30, 2022," said Ivan Ivanov, head of Bulgaria's energy regulator.
