    Monday, 21 October, 2002 World's deepest undersea gas pipeline completed Ankara, 21 October, OGT?Two pipes were welded together yesterday to finish construction of US$3.2 billion Blue Stream, the world's deepest undersea gas pipeline that will bring Russian gas to Turkey under the Black Sea.

    Story

    The 360-km underwater segment of the 446-km dual pipeline was laid at a record depth of 2,100 m below the surface of the Black Sea by the Italian engineering company Saipem.

    Turkey's energy Minister Zeki Cakan welded the end of the pipeline, stretching from the Russian port of Dzhubga to Turkey's Black Sea port of Samsun, to a separate 501-km pipeline running from Samsun to the capital Ankara.

    The line is expected to begin test deliveries of natural gas to Turkey within a month.

    Turkey will receive an annual 3 billion m3 of natural gas in 2003. This will increase to 16 billion m3 a year in 2008.

    Seems the competition for Amity is building up in Turkey, one would have to think that Amitys gas would be much cheaper and better for Turkeys balance sheet.
