Serbia has started construction of its section of the TurkStream pipeline to carry Russian natural gas to Europe, the country's Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said Wednesday.

The final weld that connects the offshore and nearshore sections of the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project was completed last month. With the completion of the receiving terminal in Turkey's Kıyıköy later this year, TurkStream will be ready to commence operations. Natural gas flow through TurkStream is planned to start by the end of 2019. The TurkStream project is an export gas pipeline consisting of two 930-kilometer lines, each with the capacity to carry 15.75 billion cubic meters of natural gas.

 

The pipelines cross beneath the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and further extend to the latter's borders with neighboring European countries.

 

TurkStream's first line is intended for gas supplies to the Turkish market, while the second will supply gas to south and southeastern Europe. The second line is expected to route from Turkey through Bulgaria, then to Serbia, Hungary and Slovakia.

Daily (17.07.2019): NBP spot plunged by over 16% on Tuesday, due to ample oversupply

17/07/2019 10:43:00

Crude oil prices dipped on Tuesday, after data showed that U.S. crude inventories dropped less than expected last week, as they were only slightly affected by disruptions in the wake of Hurricane Barry in the Gulf of Mexico. Prices were also influenced by the conflicting signals from Tehran and Washington about an alleged reduction of tensions over Iran’s ballistic missile program, as well as by China’s weakest economic growth in 27 years. As a result, Brent crude tumbled by 3.2% to $64.35 a barrel, while WTI futures slumped by 3.3% to $57.62 a barrel.
