The authorities of Turkey have issued the first permits for the construction of a high-capacity gas pipeline “Turkish Stream”, the press office of the Russian gas giant told Construction.RU on Wednesday.
At the same time, Gazprom representative pointed out that that was a result of negotiations, which were held last week between Gazprom CEO, Alexey Miller, and the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey, Berat Albayrak.
These measures taken by the Turkish authorities mean the beginning of a stage of practical implementation of the project. In accordance with it, four strings of the gas pipeline with the length of 910 km will be laid under the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey. Investments in this ambitious construction project will total €11,4 bln.
