PJSC Gazprom said Sept. 5 that the construction of the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project stretching across the Black Sea, from Russia to Turkey, is on schedule.
The pipeline is being built in two lines, each with a throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters. The first line will supply Turkey while the second will supply southern and southeastern Europe.
The deep-water pipelaying for the offshore part of the gas pipeline's first string had been completed in the Black Sea along with the construction of the second string in Russia's economic zone.
Both lines are expected to be operational by the end of 2019.
