ANAPA, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Turkey is not planning to take part in the South Stream gas pipeline project, being more interested in Nabucco-West and the Trans-Anatolian natural gas pipeline projects, Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yildiz told reporters on Friday.
However, Turkey is interested to increase Russian gas imports to satisfy its growing domestic demand, he said and added that it had not yet been decided which route to use for that, either the Blue Stream pipeline or a pipeline traversing Bulgaria.
The Nabucco-West and the Trans-Anatolian natural gas pipeline projects provide for Caspian gas supplies to Europe, including via Turkey.
