BRUSSELS, January 15. /TASS/. Experts at the European Commission (EC) will analyze Gazprom offer to buy 50-60 billion cubic meters of Russian gas via Turkey.
After that the supreme body of the EU executive power will take an appropriate decision, EC representative Anna-Kaisa Itkonen said.
“The European Commission took into account this announcement by Gazprom. Now our services will analyze it from the viewpoint of its economic sustainability, as well as regulatory efficiency and feasibility study before the final decision is taken,” Itkonen said.
Earlier the European Energy Commissioner Maros Sefcovic said the EC was ready to consider an offer made by Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller on purchasing 50-60 billion cubic meters of Russian gas via Turkey. “Mr. Miller informed me on the decision to fully supply [Russian] gas via Turkey instead of Ukraine. Frankly speaking, I was taken aback by this offer as I was going to discuss the possible ways of ensuring the energy security of South East Europe after the South Stream pipeline project was abandoned. Miller’s offer to European countries to buy 50-60 billion cubic meters of Russian gas via Turkey will hardly work, but we should come back to this offer and discuss it,” he said.
