The upcoming opening of the Blue Stream natural gas pipeline will disprove arguments made by skeptics of the trans-Baltic North European pipeline
The upcoming opening of the Blue Stream natural gas pipeline, the world's deepest underwater line running across the floor of the Black Sea, will disprove arguments made by skeptics of the trans-Baltic North European pipeline, the Russian Energy and Industry Minister said Thursday. "In the Black Sea, builders were able to overcome serious depths (more than 6,500 feet) and the hostile hydrogen-sulfide environment. In the Baltic Sea, there are lesser depths and a friendlier aquatic environment, " Viktor Khristenko said before heading to Turkey, where the opening of the 1,400-km Blue Stream pipeline will be celebrated Thursday evening in the port of Samsun. The minister described the experience gained through the Blue Stream project, which involved Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom and Italy's ENI oil company, as "invaluable." He said the project could be expanded to provide natural gas transit to southern Europe and the construction of subterranean storage facilities. Khristenko also expressed confidence that the North European project would be put into operation according to the original schedule.
