ANKARA, December 1. /TASS/. Moscow and Ankara on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding for the construction of an offshore gas pipeline to Turkey with the annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, Gazprom’s head Alexey Miller told journalists.
He added that Turkey would receive 14 billion cubic meters of that amount. The rest will be delivered to the Turkish-Greek border, Miller said.
Russia is ready to reduce gas prices for Turkey, Miller said. “We are ready to further reduce the price for Turkey. It will have gas at the price we sell gas to Germany,” he said.
Gazprom plans to establish a company to implement a new project on the construction of a gas pipeline to Turkey with probable participation of Turkish partners, Miller said on Monday. “We are ready to discuss with the Turkish side their participation, if they are interested in that. A legal entity for the implementation of this project will be set up in Russia. Gazprom will be its founder,” he told journalists.
Speaking about teh South Stream gas pipeline project, Miller said it was not topical any longer. "That’s all, the project is closed,” he told journalists after the top-level Russian-Turkish talks.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference that Russia would not continue the South Stream project “in the current conditions.”
Russia and Turkey have agreed to further expand the capacity of the Blue Stream gas pipeline from 16 to 19 billion cubic metres, CEO of Russia’s gas giant Gazprom, Alexei Miller, also told journalists on Monday.
“The Blue Stream capacity will be increased from 16 to 19 billion cubic metres of gas. By the end of December, we will complete a feasibility report on investments to the overhaul of the compressor station in Russia,” he said.
