The projects "Nabucco" and "ITGI" can be combined
As the head of the Azerbaijan energy company SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan) Rovnag Abdullayev has noted today, Europe has pondered of the possibility merging of the two power projects in one. According to the "Trend", they are talking about projects "Southern Gas Corridor" - "Nabucco" and "ITGI" (Turkey - Greece - Italy).
Partners in the project of developing gas field "Shah Deniz" in Azerbaijan expect the proposals before the first of October of this year. They will select one of the projects to transport gas which would be most cost-effective, said Abdullayev. According to him, the "Shah Deniz" field is the main resource base for projects of the "Southern Energy Corridor", which include "Nabucco", Trans pipeline (TAP), "White Stream" and "ITGI" (pipeline Turkey-Greece-Italy).
Project "Southern Energy Corridor" is a priority for European countries, underlined the representative of SOCAR. The aim of the project is the diversification of routes and sources of energy supply for the EU.
