ISTANBUL: Gazprom Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev said that the Russian energy titan will soon start investigation of the marine leg of the Turkish gas pipeline development in Turkey’s regional waters.
Medvedev said that the Turkish government gave us permission for exploration work for the gas pipeline route to Turkey and we will soon begin exploration work. In December 2014, the Turkish gas stream pipeline was planned by Russia.
As indicated by Gazprom, the pipeline is required to keep running over the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey. The full limit of the pipeline will add up to 63 billion cubic metres.
From the centre, the pipeline is expected to proceed to southern Europe.
