There are ongoing dynamic changes and transformations in the gas markets in the region with launching of new infrastructures coupled with more opportunities for supply and trade. Authorities are responding to the process by amending and creating new regulations in order to improve the competitive environment. Bulgaria, which until recently had no licensing regime for gas traders, adopted such a regulation aiming to improve market rules and professional players’ field.
The BBSPA webinar will help understand the new regulation with views from policy makers and through discussions with active as well as potential market participants.
