MOSCOW, November 26, 22:30 /ITAR-TASS/. The construction of the section of the South Stream gas pipeline in Hungary will begin in April 2015, says a report of Gazprom. “The contest has been held to select the contractor for designing, land planning and environment impact assessment for the Hungarian section of the gas pipeline, the next to be built. The construction of the Hungarian section of the gas pipeline will begin in April 2015,” says the report.
Hungary will be the third country, after Bulgaria and Serbia, where the construction of the land section of the South Stream gas pipeline will start. The gas pipeline will stretch via the Black Sea to south and central European countries for diversification of gas deliveries to Europe and lessening dependence on transit countries.
Intergovernmental agreements have been signed with Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria to implement the land part of the project.
The South Stream gas pipeline will pass over Bulgarian territory from the Black sea, the port of Varna, to the Serbian border from east to west, its stretch making up 540.8 kilometres. The total design capacity in the first year of the operation will make up approximately 16 billion cubic metres to reach later 63 billion cubic metres a year. The offshore section of the South Stream gas pipeline to bring Russian gas to South Europe will be over 900 kilometres long.
