TURKISH STREAM CONSTRUCTION
GAZPROM - Construction of the TurkStream gas pipeline was commenced in the Black Sea near the Russian coast. Pipelaying is carried out by the Audacia vessel owned by Allseas, the construction contractor for both strings of the gas pipeline's offshore section. The vessel will be also used for pipe pulling through microtunnels. Construction works for the TurkStream gas pipeline in the deep-water area will be performed by the Pioneering Spirit pipe-laying vessel.
"Today, we started the practical implementation of the TurkStream gas pipeline project: pipe-laying within the offshore section. The project is right on schedule, and by late 2019 our Turkish and European consumers will have a new, reliable source of Russian gas imports," said Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
