Turkey conducting preparatory work for creating gas hub

“[Russian President Vladimir] Putin, as you know, suggested that natural gas for Europe be distributed via Turkey’s territory. We are conducting preparatory works for that,” the TRT television channel quoted him as saying.

The idea of establishing a hub in Turkey to redirect the volume of gas, the transit of which is no longer possible through the Nord Stream, to was advanced by Russian President Vladimir Putin during Russian Energy Week, he said, according to TASS.

It may imply building another gas pipeline system and creating a hub in Turkey, through which gas will be supplied to third countries, primarily European ones if they are interested, he added.

This issue was among the topics discussed by the Russian and Turkish presidents on the sidelines of the summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia in Astana on October 13.
