MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Gazprom is not yet holding negotiations on Eastring project and has only familiarized itself with it, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the gas holding Alexander Medvedev said on Tuesday.

"We are not yet holding the dialog. We familiarized ourselves with that [project]," Medvedev said.

TASS reported earlier citing Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak that Russia is waiting for a formal proposal to join the East European gas pipeline Eastring construction project on the territory of Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary..

A reverse pipeline connecting Ukraine and Turkey may appear in EU’s gas transport system in the next several years. The design provides an opportunity of integrating gas pipelines of Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria with further connection to the Russian-Turkish gas pipeline. Plans to implement the project were announced by Eustream. The future gas pipeline will be named Eastring and is planned to be laid from Slovakian Velke Kapusany to the Turkish-Bulgarian border. The annual capacity of the pipeline will total 20 bln cubic meters of gas.
