New gas pipeline planned between Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina

19 Mar 2021

The Serbian state-owned natural gas provider Srbijagas has signed an agreement with the Bosnian natural gas distributor Gas-Res to build a 1.2 bcm/year gas pipeline between Serbia and Bosnia's Republika Srpska (RS). The 410 km long gas pipeline will stretch from Indjija to Mačvanski Prnjavor (Serbia), Bijeljina (RS entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina), Banja Luka and Novi Grad. The €125m pipeline is part of the Balkan Stream project, which extends Gazprom’s TurkStream project to Europe.

In January 2020, Russia’s Gazprom has started to export natural gas to Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina through the TurkStream gas pipeline, which supplies 15.75 bcm/year to Turkey and 15.75 bcm/year to Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary. Russian gas is brought via Bulgaria's national gas transmission system to Serbia, where it is distributed among consumers in Serbia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
