Greece-Bulgaria gas interconnector startup is now set for July 2022 after multiple delays:

The Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria, or IGB, -- part of
the much-heralded Southern Gas Corridor -- has been delayed several
times
, most recently due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wikipedia mentions that this project was supposed to start back in 2014 (so, way before the COVID and what seems to be Russian generated gas crisis in EU)

(..) it will achieve real diversification of sources of supply of
natural gas to Bulgaria. (..) The pipeline was expected to be put in
operation in December 2014.

Why has a very important (energy security-related) project like this been delayed so much?
