  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Bulgaria has almost depleted its natural gas field of Galata, in the Black Sea, though new gas deposits containing over 3 bcm of natural gas were discovered in 2010. Currently, natural gas production is negligible and declining (from 436 mcm in 2011 to 94 mcm in 2016 and 74 mcm in 2017) and...

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    Fuel prices in Bulgaria soared between 2000 and 2006, rising by 75% for gasoline and doubling for diesel; after a slight decrease through 2009, fuel prices surged again until 2013 (+50% for gasoline and +60% for diesel between 2009 and 2013) and have been declining since then, following the...
