BERLIN, April 13. /TASS/. Russia sees interest from Hungary, Greece, Macedonia and Serbia in participation in the construction of European infrastructure for the Turkish Stream pipeline, Russian Ambassador to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov told TASS Monday.

"Just before the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visited Moscow [on April 7 — TASS] foreign ministers of Hungary, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and Macedonia met in Budapest. They were discussing this topic [construction of European infrastructure for the Turkish stream —TASS]," Chizhov said.

"You can clearly see the interest in the project’s implementation and the direct participation of their companies," he said.

On December 1, 2014 Gazprom and Turkish company Botas signed a memorandum on construction of a gas pipeline from Russia to Turkey via the Black Sea. The pipeline capacity will total 63 billion cubic meters of gas, of which about 50 billion cubic meters will be delivered to a new gas hub on the Turkish-Greek border.

Gazprom Russkaya will be in charge of the pipeline construction.

Gazprom stopped the South Stream gas pipeline project early in December 2014. The gas holding at the same time announced the implementation of the Turkish Stream, the alternative project of the gas pipeline construction to Turkey with further deliveries to Europe.

The Turkish Stream gas pipeline will run 660 km along the old corridor of the South Stream project abandoned by Russia and 250 km in the new corridor towards Turkey’s European part. The pipeline will have a capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, of which 50 billion cubic meters will be supplied to a new gas hub on the Turkish-Greek border.
