Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
On the session held on 20/06/2017, the Council of the Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia has adopted Decision on the approval of Yugorosgaz-Transport, LLC Transmission System Development Plan for 2017-2026.
In the end of 2016, the transmission system operator „YUGOROGAZ-TRANSPORT“ LLC submitted to the Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia the draft of the Transmission System Development Plan for the period 2017-2026. The Agency organised public consultation and invited all the interested parties to submit their remarks, proposals and suggestions. Although no comments were submitted to the text draft during the envisaged public consultation deadline, the Agency asked for amendments to the Transmission System Development Plan for the period 2017-2026 in order to harmonise with the requirements from the Law and the Transmission Network Code it in terms of both its content and format.
This Plan envisages the construction of gas pipelines which will enable more intensive gasification of the south of Serbia, especially in Vranje, Vladičin Han and Surdulica. It also envisages the connection of the transmission system with Niš – Dimitrovgrad gas pipeline which is expected to be constructed and thus increase the security of supply of customers on the entire territory of Serbia.
