“We’re planning this for December,” Novak told journalists. “Negotiations are now underway at the level of companies,” the minister said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on December 1 that Russia was abandoning its South Stream gas pipeline project in Europe over the European Commission’s unconstructive approach and instead was planning to build a gas pipeline to Turkey.
The Russian energy minister said Russia and Turkey were currently negotiating the route of laying a pipeline to Turkey and the place for the accommodation of a gas hub.
The energy minister gave no details but said some options envisaged laying a gas pipeline across the Black Sea.
“I believe everyone wants to make this process swift and prepare proposals within a short period of time,” Novak said.
