On October 31, at 3:05 am, an explosion of a gas pipeline in Bulgaria occurred, which is a continuation of the Turkish stream. The explosion took place near the Nova Provadia pumping station, about 70 km from the city of Varna, Bulgaria.
Gassing of the area was reported, with locals talking about low-flying helicopters and loud roar, as well as several explosions that were heard within a radius of 20 km.
The pipeline is being operated by Bulgartransgaz EAD, a state-owned company involved in a number of scandals and two previous pipeline explosions this year.
Locals saw the scene of the accident talking about a crater of about 50 meters.
Fortunately, the gas pipeline passes far from populated areas and there are no casualties.
Gas from Russia to Serbia, Hungary and Romania has been suspended.
