MOSCOW - Anadolu Agency
Alexander Medvedev, speaking to the Gazprom corporate magazine, said the company aims to transfer a record volume of 200 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas by the end of this year, up from the 148.2 bcm exported in the first nine months of 2018.
“The construction of the offshore section of the second transit line of TurkStream is in full swing. Completion of the deepwater laying will be completed soon,” Medvedev said.
“Next year, we also plan to begin construction of the land section of the transit line in Turkey. Currently, Gazprom is negotiating with the Turkish company Botaş. TurkStream is scheduled to go into operation in December 2019,” he added.
