Turkish hub could solve Nord Stream’s problems – Gazprom – RT Business News


Gas giant CEO says all Nord Stream gas volumes could be redirected via Turkey

Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller said on Sunday that it would be possible to redirect all gas supplies cut off due to sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines through a Turkish hub.

“We are talking about all these volumes that we have lost due to acts of international terrorism on the Nord Stream pipelines, so it can be significant volumes”, Miller said in an interview with Russia 1 TV, commenting on the prospects for creating a major energy hub in Turkey.

Miller pointed out that the company’s experience in preparing for the South Stream pipeline project could be valuable. The project, which would have brought about 63 billion cubic meters of Russian gas per year across the Black Sea to Bulgaria and other countries in Europe, was eventually canceled and replaced by TurkStream.

« So even though we’re talking about the technical documentation of the route, everything was done for South Stream at the time, » said the CEO.
