Gazprom receives survey permit for two strings of Turkish Stream in Turkey’s territorial waters
MOSCOWGazprom has said it received through diplomatic channels a survey permit for two strings of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project’s offshore section in Turkish territorial waters, in a written statement on Sept. 29.
In December 2014, Gazprom and Turkey’s BOTAŞ signed a Memorandum of Understanding to construct the gas pipeline. The pipeline will run 660 kilometers along the old South Stream route and cover 250 kilometers of a new route toward the European part of Turkey. It is planned that the first gas pipeline string will be used exclusively for gas supplies to the Turkish market.
