The Foreign Ministry called the conditions for the construction of the second string of "Turkish Stream"

The second thread of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline will be built only upon receipt of firm guarantees from the European Commission, Russia is ready to discuss the routes, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.


The Foreign Ministry called the conditions for the construction of the second string of "Turkish Stream"


Turkish Stream ", which can be extended to Europe, while only the first thread, is being built directly for consumers in Turkey. And the second one will be built only if we receive reinforced concrete guarantees of the European Commission that they will not throw out the same number as it happened to the South flow "in respect of Bulgaria, which is now again ready to consider taking to itself the second thread of the" Turkish Stream "
- Lavrov said at the annual big press conference.

We will be ready for any option, but the option that will be 100% guaranteed by the European Commission, as one that will not be derailed
- the minister added.

Commenting on US opposition to energy projects in the Russian Federation, Lavrov once again stressed that "fear of fair competition is visible here."

As long as they do not pull fair competition, they move to unfair competition, to political pressure, to force European countries to build relevant facilities (to receive American liquefied natural gas) and to receive more expensive gas. This is a choice of European countries, we proceed from the fact that they themselves must understand their economic interests.
said the Russian foreign minister.

Within the framework of the “Turkish Stream”, it was assumed that two strands of the gas pipeline along the bottom of the Black Sea should be built. According to one of them, gas from Russia will go to Turkey, and according to the second - in transit through Turkey to Europe. The first thread is expected to be launched in the spring of 2018.

        Bulgaria, which is now again ready to consider accepting the second string of the Turkish Stream

        An interesting twist. Turkish stream smoothly turns into a Bulgarian stream (formerly southern) laughing
        And it says so, by the way.
        And what will the Turks who wanted to steer gas for Europe say? But what about the hub in Turkey for gas transit to Europe?
        And Erdogan, in the end, in the know about such a turn? laughing

            I do not see in my budget at least some increase from the sale of natural resources. I pay for the consumed gas myself, no one refills the car for free, products “for beautiful eyes” do not bring. The fact that the PFR allegedly feeds from these revenues only means that the money was squandered there. What am I to worry about for the Sechins with the Millers and others? Do they swell from hunger?

                There is no dispute - filling the budget and jobs is good. But! It would be better if the budget was filled from the sale of products of advanced hydrocarbon processing. And it would be even better if these hydrocarbons were not stupidly burned for heating and in the internal combustion engine. But, as long as they have reserves, no one will seek and develop appropriate technologies. Alas...

                  The vast majority of produced and promising composites are of hydrocarbon origin. And, unfortunately, not all of them can be recycled. The price of primary resources can become prohibitive over time.

          Sometimes it's better to be silent ...
          Natural gas and associated petroleum gas are not at all the same thing.
          And just the associated petroleum gas, which as a by-product of oil production, is burned directly on the ground (although a lot of various regulations have been issued on the disposal of such fractions recently), since it is difficult to use it even in the process of oil production (in gas lift systems, PPD, etc.). n.), since there is a mountain of technological limitations due to its component composition.

          And God forbid you, to say that gas from gas caps is a by-product from oil production, because it is a separate product, only with a common location within the reservoir / deposit / field ...

          With the same success, it can be stated that a sister is a by-product at the birth of a brother.

      Failure or a significant reduction in gas transit is planned for the end of the 2019 year.
      For your information: The pipeline will have a length of about 1100 kilometers, of which 910 kilometers will be an offshore pipeline.
      It will consist of four lines with a total capacity of 63 bcm of gas per year:
      the first line, with a capacity of 15,75 billion m³ per year, is intended for gas supplies to Turkish consumers (and is designed to connect to existing gas pipelines in Turkey from Greece, but actual use is possible in reverse mode).
      The first string is scheduled to be commissioned in March 2018.
      the second line, with a capacity of 15,75 billion m³ per year, is intended for gas supply to the countries of Southern and Southeast Europe. Commissioning of the second string is expected in the 2019 year.
      As of November 29, November 2017, 30% (555 kilometers) of two lines of the offshore section of the pipeline were laid, while work is already underway in the exclusive economic zone of Turkey.

          No, Lavrov is not lying, saying reinforced concrete guarantees from the EC for the construction of the second branch of the gas pipeline to Europe - there will be no guarantees, there will be no second branch. But the "devil", as they say, in details not voiced by Lavrov. So:

          “On November 4 on November 2017, the first line of the Turkish Stream offshore gas pipeline entered the Turkish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Pioneering Spirit, the world's largest pipe-laying and construction vessel, celebrated this event by laying pipe sections with Russian and Turkish flags symbolizing the intersection in the sea the border of the EEZ between the two countries. Crossing the border also marks the end of the construction of offshore sections of two lines on the territory of the Russian EEZ. A total of 448 kilometers were laid along two lines of the gas pipeline. Less eat for months 6 built almost 25% of the sea area. This is consistent with the planned schedule of construction. This is consistent with the planned schedule of construction. It is expected that the transport of gas by "Turkish Stream" will begin in December 2019 years. "
          Source: http://turkstream.info/ru/press/news/2017/170/

          The construction of the first pipe for Turkey continues at the moment already in the Turkish EEZ, the second pipe for Europe is already at the bottom and its end is plugged in the Turkish EEZ (see figure) and is waiting for “reinforced concrete guarantees” from the EC.
          In December 2019, the contract for the transportation of gas to Europe (by the way to Turkey, too) through Ukraine ends. (http://www.compromat.ru/page_23857.htm)
          What are the actions of Russia?

          For your information: “... Turkey purchases from Russia about 27 — 29 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year. About half is transported through the Blue Stream, the other part is transported via the Trans-Balkan gas pipeline through Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria. In this way, one of the goals of the gas pipeline is to stop gas supplies to Turkey through Ukrainethat, provided that the Nord Stream - 2 gas pipeline or the second phase of the Turkish Stream is commissioned, will allow to achieve the goal officially announced by the Government of the Russian Federation - to stop the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine by 2019».

    According to the Turkish flow ... in the wet dreams of Gazprom there were 4 threads of 15 billion cubic meters each, which totaled about 60 billion a year.
    So far, one branch has been agreed upon very, very tentatively for Turkey itself, the second is in question, it still needs to be earned, bending as far as possible under Erdogan. About 2 and 4 threads, the question no longer arises.
    For reference, transit through Ukraine in 2016 was 83 billion cubic meters.

        She will go, but who will take her? laughing
        If I understood correctly, we built a pipe to nowhere, laid a second thread without any guarantees? Why then Lavrov’s concern, because it’s already built?

          The first link (224km) of the second branch of the gas pipeline has already been withdrawn to the Turkish EEZ and will wait for the continuation of the laying, if it does not happen by 2019, the pipe at the bottom will be mothballed. I would venture to suggest why the Russian Federation so quickly built and brought out the end of the pipe in the Turkish EEZ? The United States last year announced that since 2018, they intend to impose sanctions on Western companies (American and European) that cooperate with Russian companies. Companies participating in the Turkish stream:
          1. South Stream Transport BV (100 Percentage Subsidiary of Gazprom)
          2. BOTAS - State Pipeline Company of Turkey
          3. Allseas Group SA - Swiss offshore pipeline contractor
          4. Eni SpA - the largest Italian oil and gas company
          So, if the states click on the Swiss (they have a contract with Gazprom for laying a pipe) for cooperation with the Russian Federation, mechanisms can be involved in renegotiating a contract for laying a pipe directly with the Turks (BOTAS) and in this case the pipe is already on the Turkish bottom and further laying formally passes through the territory of Turkey - circumvention of sanctions!

          ....and further:
          "February 22 2017 between Nord Stream 2 AG and Allseas An agreement was concluded to provide capacities for the offshore pipe-laying of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. According to the agreement During 2018 and 2019, Allseas will lay pipes for both pipelines using three pipe-laying vessels - Pioneering Spirit, Solitaire and Audacia."
