The joint construction works on the maritime part of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline will begin in the second half of 2017. Alexei Miller, the CEO of Russian gas monopolist company Gazprom, said this after the negotiations between Prime Ministers Dmitriy Medvedev and Binali Yildirim.

‘Today, we can surely say that the construction works of the maritime part of the Turkish stream will begin in the second half of 2017. Both lines will be operational by late 2019,’ Miller said. According to him, currently the sides are working on technical and economic evaluations of entry points of the Stream to EU countries.

Earlier today, Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan ratified the bill for the TurkStream project agreement between Turkey and Russia and it entered into force through promulgation in the Turkish Official Gazette.
