VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. The project on the construction of the first line of the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline may be implemented by the end of 2019, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Saturday.
Sanctions against Turkish Stream construction operator will not have a negative impact on the project, Novak added.
"Currently we’re in talks with our Turkish partners on particular steps to implement the project. We’ve developed a road map, which has been submitted to Turkish partners, a working group has been set up, and a draft intergovernmental agreement has been prepared. We’re planning to end up with signing of respective agreements within one or two months so that the first line of the gas pipeline to deliver gas to Turkish consumers is constructed by the end of 2019," he said.
On Friday, Novak said the road map on the construction of the Turkish Stream project may be agreed upon in October this year.
