The preliminary design for the project connecting the natural gas networks of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia was delivered at the end of April, BH Gas said in a statement.
The two networks are planned to connect at the Croatian town of Zagvozd leading to the Bosnian towns of Posušje and Novi Travnik with a tie-in to Mostar.
BH Gas secured European Union grants through the JASPERS scheme to fund the preliminary design, as well as the review of the design. Additionally, the project will enable Bosnia and Herzegovina to source volumes at the Croatian LNG terminal under construction on the island of Krk.
The preliminary design was completed by the Mot MacDonald-Connecta consortium, Offshore-energy.biz says.
