The amended plan for the South Stream section through Serbia will have been adopted by the end of September and the construction of the gas line could start by the end of this year. The total length of the line through Serbia will be 422.4 km. The line will be passing through 33 towns and municipalities. More by Ranka Pavlović.
The South Stream will be entering Serbia from Bulgaria, near Zaječar and will be leaving it near Sombor, i.e. Bački breg, on the border with Hungary. The amendments to the plan also include the line towards the Republic of Srpska, 107km long, and the line towards Croatia, 50km long. The process of expropriation of land for construction lots will start soon and 1,000 contracts have been concluded with the owners so far. 80 ha, or 0.2% of land, has been envisaged for permanent expropriation, while the use of the most of the land will be limited.
The gas line will be mainly passing across agricultural land and partly through forest areas, whereas areas rich in natural resources have been mostly evaded. Some fifty facilities in the gas line protection zone are to be torn down. The most complicated process is expected along the first 150km from the Bulgarian border as the gas line there is to pass through the mountainous area. No south line has been included in the amendments, but there is an initiative for a direction towards Montenegro, Kosmet and Macedonia. If the Serbian government decides to build that line, the deadlines and method of work on a plan for the new section will be known in due course.
The first gas quantities should flow across the territory of Serbia in 2016. The amendments also define zones from the either side of the gas line, which fully secure protection of people and property, as well as connections to the national gas network, near Gospođinci, not far from Novi Sad, and near Pirot in southern Serbia.The South Stream gas line will be supplying gas through a pipeline under the Black Sea and than across the land, through Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovenia and Italy, for clients in southeastern Europe and the EU. Its construction began in Russia in December 2012 and the works have been estimated at some EUR 16 billion. The gas line should start operating towards the end of 2015. The project is being realized by Russian state company Gazprom and the Serbian section is being realized by company “Južni tok Srbija”, in which the Russian giant has 51% of share, whereas the rest of the capital belongs to public company “Srbijagas”.
