Greece suggests to deliver the Russian gas to Europe on the TAP gas pipeline — Rambler News Service


Greece sees a possibility of Russian gas supplies to Europe on the Transadriatic pipeline (TAP), the prime minister of the country Alexis Tsipras at a press conference said following the results of a meeting with the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. "There is a TAP gas pipeline. We have specifications that this gas pipeline included also the Russian gas" — Tsipras told. Last summer the deputy the chairman of the board of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev said that Gazprom allows use of capacities of the TAP gas pipeline at implementation of the Poseidon project which assumes the organization of the southern route of Russian gas supplies through Greece to Italy. The project of the Poseidon gas pipeline was developed and approved for connection of gas transmission systems of Greece and Italy. Expansion of the gas pipeline for ensuring direct supply of gas from Turco-Greek border to Italy is planned. On February 24, 2016 Gazprom, Edison and DEPA signed the memorandum of understanding concerning supply of natural gas from Russia under the Black Sea through the third countries to Greece and from Greece to Italy for the purpose of the organization of the southern route of supply of the Russian natural gas to Europe. The TAP gas pipeline is a part of the Southern Gas Corridor project which assumes supply of gas from the Caspian region to Europe, passing Russia. The Azerbaijani Socar plans to use TAP for supply of gas from the Shah Deniz field to the European consumers. Gas will come at first on the Transanatoliysky pipeline (TANAP) through Georgia to Turkey, then to Europe on TAP through Greece, Albania on the South of Italy.
