"Nabucco and South Stream might be united, and Italian Eni, which is Russia's main European partner in gas pipeline construction, supports this step".
Let us remind you that one of these days, Nabucco Gas Pipeline International Company informed that European Union should develop relationship with potential gas suppliers for the gas pipeline project that will help Europe diversify the energy supply routes and sources.
"The year of 2011 is a key one for the project, - official representative of the Nabucco project Christian Dolezal remarked. - This year, decisions will be taken that will significantly influence the future energy supplies to Europe".
As was reported earlier, the construction of the gas pipeline valued at 8 bln euro will be started this year, the gas delivery starting by 2014. The first stage implies the transportation of as much as 15 bln cubic meters of gas per year, while the designed capacity of the gas branch will enable to pump 31 bln cubic meters of fuel.
Total length of the pipeline will be 3282 km considering the feeding branches, of which 1998 km will be laid along the Turkish territory. Besides, Nabucco system gas pipelines will run through the territory of Georgia and Iran. The main purpose of the project is the transportation of the Caspian and Middle-East gas to Austria and further to other European consumers.
