LUKoil officials to visit Bulgaria over strategic partnership
A delegation of Russia's oil giant LUKoil headed by its president Vagit Alekperov will arrive in Bulgaria on May 29, said LUKoil-Bulgaria chief Valentin Zlataev in an interview with the Platts agency. The delegation will stay there for two days. It is expected to meet with the Bulgarian Prime Minister and Cabinet members on possible strategic partnership. Zlataev neither confirmed nor denied information that the parties might touch upon the participation of LUKoil in pipeline construction from Burgas (Bulgaria) to Alexandroupolis (Greece). This pipeline will deliver from 10 to 25 million tons of oil from Russia and Caspian regions annually, Platts reported.
