The Blue Stream project has been officially inaugurated at the Samsun-based Durusu gas metering station (Turkey). “The Blue Stream construction has become another element of Gazprom’s integration into the European and global business as well as created additional conditions for establishing an integrated European energy space. Together with our foreign counterparts we formed a unique gas transmission corridor allowing to directly deliver Russian gas to Turkey, a Gazprom’s prominent consumer. Subsea gas grids are becoming an integrated part of the global gas transmission system and we are intent on keeping pace with their best construction practices from now and onwards. We’ve addressed the possibility of implementing new promising projects including with regard to Russian gas transit via Turkey to southern Europe,” Alexey Miller was quoted as saying.
