Armenia won't participate in project of Nabucco gas pipeline construction, stated Andris Piebalgs, the European Commissioner for Energy, at the Gas Infrastructure World Caspian-2009 international conference - RIA Novosti.


New wave of interest to Nabucco project occurred after Russian-Ukrainian gas conflict.

Signing of the agreement on Nabucco took place on July 13th . It implies transportation of natural gas to European countries via Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Austria. The length of the pipeline amounts 3 300 km, power - 31 bn of cunbic meters per year.

The project is a continuation of already built Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline. The construction must start in 2011.

In early September the Star [Turkish newspaper] reported that the EU, favoring the agreement between Armenia and Turkey, intends to change the rout of the pipeline and make Armenia instead of Georgia a transit country.
