MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak and European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic have discussed the Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline projects, as well as Yamal Europe.
"We’ve discussed infrastructure development to ensure energy supplies to European consumers. We’ve discussed the Nord Stream 2, the South Stream as it is today (Turkish Stream), the issues related to Yamal Europe gas pipeline," he said.
According to Novak, Russia is ready to provide additional additional information about the feasibility of Turkish Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines construction to the European Commission (EC). "In my view, the talks were quite fruitful, and we’re ready to provide more information to our colleagues from the European Union about the viability, economic first of all, about the need to implement those projects," he said.
Novak and Sefcovic have also discussed the issues related to EC’s permission on OPAL gas pipeline capacity. The permission was granted on October 28. The Minister called it a positive step forward to expansion of the relations between Russia and the EU.
