VIENNA, June 3. /TASS/. Russia is awaiting an official offer from European countries to join the construction project of Eastring East-European gas pipeline, which will pass through territories of Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Wednesday.
"We’re awaiting offers. We have not received any official offers on participating in the project yet," he said.
As was reported earlier a reverse pipeline may be added to the EU gas transmission system in the nearest several years to link Ukraine to Turkey. The project implies merging gas transmission systems of Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria with further joining the Russia-Turkey pipeline. The Slovak transmission system operator Eustream announced plans to implement the project. The planned Eastring gas pipeline with annual capacity at 20 bln cubic meters of gas will run from the Slovak-Ukrainian border to the border between Bulgaria and Turkey.
