According to Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller, the implementation of the Turkish Stream project continues successfully.
An important stage has been completed - the first line of the pipeline has been built. The pace of construction is high. Since 7 May 2017, when the pipe-laying campaign began, 1161 has already built a total of two kilometers of the offshore gas pipeline, which is 62% of its total length. “Turkish Stream” will undoubtedly play a big role in strengthening the energy security of Turkey and Europe- declared Miller.
The press service of Gazprom also noted that in Turkey, in the area of the village Kiyiky, a receiving terminal is being built.
With the end of the construction of the landfall sections, work on the first line will be completed- said in a statement.
