ST. PETERSBURG, May 26. /TASS/. The feasibility study of the new Black Sea gas pipeline project may be ready by the end of the year, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev said Thursday.
"Probably at the year-end, the route will be there if the document is ready," Medvedev said. An option across Bulgaria is the quickest for implementation, he added.
The option of gas pipeline laying across Bulgaria is considered, Medvedev said. "A tremendous job was done. If this option is taken as a basis, it will be the easiest to implement in terms of time," he added.
Selection of the route "is for European partners in the project to take care of," Medvedev said. "Let those who need gas solve the key problem - what route of gas supply is preferable for them," he added.
