Gazprom Might Increase Capacity of South Stream Gas Pipeline by 50%
This was announced on Wednesday by the Deputy Chair of Gazprom's Governing Board Alexander Medvedev, the BGNES news agency reported.
Medvedev had a working meeting with the European Commissioner for Energy Andris Piebalgs about the consequences of the recent gas crisis which resulted from the Russia-Ukraine gas pricing dispute. The two discussed the various ways to prevent such situations from happening again.
"No final decision has been made on expanding South Stream's capacity - this is one of our project options but enlarging the pipe will lead to the reduction of the relative transit cost per kilometer", the Gazprom Deputy Chair explained.
In his words, this second option will save the company a lot of money so it has decided to consider it.
The South Stream pipeline is projected to transit gas from Russia to Southern Europe via the Black Sea and Bulgaria. On Bulgarian terrotory it will cross routes with the EU-sponsored Nabucco gas transit pipeline, which is to bring gas from the Middle East and Central Asia.

I'll bet you are right about that guy not being a native French speaker. I don't speak French, but I've noticed that spacing thing. If I had to guess, I'd guess that his native language is one that doesn't use the Latin alphabet; and again, that his French is a little better than his English (because of the spacing thing.) I've had a few Indian and Pakistani colleagues in the past who always put a space before the period and all of them spoke French as a second or third language too. Their grammar in English was impeccable, though, so I don't think so. "Other" immigrant in Belgium? (No offense intended to anyone.)
I don't know, but it is interesting to watch the patterns you see among the various nicks. :)
Have a wonderful evening,
jm (you too, Bill! You always wonder how the working folks find so much time for forum chat. I think they're just used to more multitasking than you are these days. People are slow, computers are fast. A lot can be done.)
I don't think Steal is a native French speaker, because in a previous post some time ago he wrote something in French that was even worse than his English. This leads me to suspect that he is no native speaker of French or of English. Belgians do speak a bit of French, most of them. He sounds to me very much like Dirk of old, the one who used to cry and complain about Bulgaria all the time. That's why I think he might be Belgian.
"Your grammar is bad, you write English like you are translating from German or Dutch or some peculiar language. lol"
I think Stealthy either speaks French or, at least, speaks more French than he does English. When writing French you leave a space before the punctuation, and it isn't natural to do this if your native language is Dutch or German. They also use something that looks like these <> as quotes. I can't remember anyone else using spaces that way, so it's possible he is not a sockpuppet, but...
Just my observation,
Stel a.k.a. Dirk
""His English grammar is bad ..." ... wow wow wow ... how do you <Gypsy bastards> know about how native English really sounds ??? You really think that living in dirty immigrants blocs and cleaning crap you may learn good English ?"
It was I who said your grammar is bad, and I grew up in the US and was educated both in the US and in London. My family defected from Bulgaria in the 1960ies.
Your grammar is bad, you write English like you are translating from German or Dutch or some peculiar language. lol
I know I speak for most Bulgarians here, when I say -thank you Stealthy!
Thank you for illustrating some realities here:
This is what Bulgaria haters sound like - nasty, racist, angry, petty, and of course uneducated - most can't make themselves understood in English - EU's official language ...
Kolega or whatever ,
it seems like you forgot yourself in playing ... how many nicks do you have on this forum ? Living several lives at the same time , you should have already faced with double identity ... lol ... "His English grammar is bad ..." ... wow wow wow ... how do you <Gypsy bastards> know about how native English really sounds ??? You really think that living in dirty immigrants blocs and cleaning crap you may learn good English ? Feeling very upset with your current condition , you are here to offend foreigners because as silly jerks you are lacking arguments to carry on valid discussion ... Your Gypsy dreams are what that makes you stay away from reality !
On second thought, cancel that - Steal-thy does not speak French. Maybe not Belgian then. What can he be?
Too angry and irrational to be a German, does not speak French, too arrogant to be a Scandinavian, not a native English speaker to be a Brit. What's left? Eastern Europe? Netherlands?
