“Gazprom” has completed the construction of the offshore section of the gas pipeline “Turkish stream”, against the use which was made by many world leaders
Monday, 19 November, Istanbul hosted a ceremony of the completion of construction of the offshore section of the new pipeline. It was attended by the presidents of Russia and Turkey Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
It is expected that the pipeline will be launched by the end of 2019.
It should be noted that informed about the dangers of this project, warned a global policy.
The Minister of energy of the USA Rick Perry said that Ukraine and Europe should not become hostage to energy supplies from one source in connection with the advent of Nord stream-2 and the second line of the Turkish stream.
“I want to leave a very clear message. United States of America very clearly Express their disagreement with the construction of Nord stream-2, and the second strand of the Turkish stream. The reason is obvious. Citizens of Ukraine and Europe should not become hostage to the supply of energy from a single source,” said Perry.
In turn, President of Poland Andrzej Duda also expressed concern in connection with the construction of Russian gas pipelines to bypass Ukraine. According to him, this is dangerous for both Ukrainians, and Slovakia, as well as his country.
“Without a doubt, the creation of the gas pipeline Nord stream-2 is a danger for Ukraine, Slovakia and it would also be energy danger for Poland, if not for our precautionary actions that we are implementing,” – said the President.
Earlier we wrote about the fact that if Russia will finish and launch the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2” and “Turkish stream”, Ukraine will immediately lose the opportunity to transport Russian gas.
As reported by the commercial Director of “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Yuriy Vitrenko, it could happen in 2021.
“If they built and launched the “Nord stream-2”, and both lines of the “Turkish stream”, there is a high probability that immediately transit through Ukraine will be zero. “Nord stream-2″ could theoretically be finished before the end of 2019. However, it is likely that the builders will be late, that would be the end of 2020. Accordingly, the transit will be absent from 2021,” – said Vitrenko.
