Russia: Turkish Stream and TAP not competitors

Moscow, December 17 - Neftegaz.RU. Russian initiated Turkish Stream project and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which envisages transportation of Azerbaijani gas to Europe are not competitors, said Denis Manturov, Russian Industry and Trade Minister.


Turkish Stream and TAP are not competitors: the 2 infrastructures, which cross different countries, can in some ways be called complementary, Italian La Stampa quoted Manturov. At the same time, it is incorrect to state that the Turkish Stream is an alternative to the Trans Adriatic Pipeline project, according to the Russian minister.


He noted that TAP can transport not only Azerbaijani, but also Russian gas. Earlier, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras also said that TAP may be filled with Russian gas as well.


«TAP project is 80 % complete already. I think we have the necessary technical conditions to fill this pipeline with Russian gas. I believe that this will be beneficial for the European economy and the entire region,» said Tsipras, adding that Greece will promote this position in the meetings with European partners.
