The heating utility firms in the cities of Sofia
may face gas cut if they do not pay their debts to Bulgargaz. I will not let the gas supply as we cannot pay in advance the gas to the Russians
, said Dimitar Gogov, head of the state-owned gas monopoly. We sent letters to the heating utilities months ago alerting them about the possible gas stoppage
The total debt is over BGN 175 mln as BGN 30 mln are instantly exigible. Heat Supply-Burgas
, Heat Supply-Pleven
and Heat Supply-Vratsa
has signed prolongations of their debts. Heat Supply-Sofia
has not reached such a deal due to the change of ownership.
A debt of BGN 120 mln is being extended and if the Ministry of Economy, being the owner, approves such a scheme, Sofia
would have heating in the winter.
