Reuters: Gazprom Plans to Start Laying Turkish Stream Pipes in June ‘Despite Questions’
Russia may see its ambition to carry gas to Europe via the future Turkish Stream pipeline thwarted with the EU determined to cut its energy reliance on Russia and Turkey seeking big discounts for Russian gas in exchange for participating in the project, Reuters said on Wednesday.
The state-controlled Russian gas giant Gazprom plans to start laying pipes on the Black Sea bed by the end of the month “although it has no firm agreement with Ankara and faces opposition from the EU”, the newswire said.
Gazprom declined to comment but “its plans may have to stop there”, according to the article, which you can read here.
