MOSCOW, May 19. / TASS / All pipes purchased for the South Stream project will be used for the Turkish Stream project, said Oleg Aksyutin, a member of the Gazprom Board of Directors.
"All pipes that were acquired as part of the South Stream, will be used in the Turkish Stream," he said, adding that a portion of the pipes has been manufactured and are stored in a special warehouse.
As it was previously reported by TASS, Gazprom earlier this month instructed to begin the Turkish Stream construction. The contractor had been waiting for this order since December 1, 2014, when Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia will not carry out the South Stream project and is and embarking on the Turkish stream.
In contrast to the South Stream, which involved large-scale infrastructure construction in Europe, the Turkish Stream project is limited to construction of a pipeline under the Black Sea and a hub on the border between Turkey and Greece.
The larger part of the Turkish Stream pipe will run across the Black Sea and coincide with the South Stream route approved earlier.
The Turkish Stream will have an annual capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, of which 47 billion cubic meters will be delivered to a new gas hub on the Turkish-Greek border. Gazprom Russkaya Company will be in charge of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline construction.
