Research and Markets( has announced the addition of the "Offshore Oil and Gas Industry in Bulgaria" report to their offering.

“Offshore Oil and Gas Industry in Bulgaria”

Bulgaria is a net importer of oil and does not have any significant quantities of oil production. However, the strategic location of Bulgaria on the Black Sea has made it as a transit point for Caspian Sea oil exports that are heading towards European refineries. Bulgaria is also a transit route for gas exports from Russia to Turkey. While oil is imported through Bulgaria's Burgas port, the oil and gas exploration in the country occurs majorly in the northern part and the Black Sea. From the Burgas port, both the oil terminal and refinery are further connected to many cities in Bulgaria through pipelines.

In 2005, Bulgaria offered the offshore Shabla block in the northern Black Sea shelf for exploration under a three year agreement. The potential reserves of the Shabla block are likely to be 200 million barrels. There is also much interest in the exploration of Pleven on the Romanian-Bulgarian border.
