Construction of sea part of 'Blue Stream' pipeline completed

The construction of the second line of the Russian-Turkish gas pipeline 'Blue Stream' on the bottom of the Black Sea has been finished, the press service of Gazprom reported. The sea part of 'Blue Stream' consists of two pipelines of 61 centimeters in diameter each. As it was earlier reported, the construction of the fist line was started in September 2001 and was completed on March 31, 2002. The construction of the second line was started in February 2002. Specialists of the Saipem company constructed about 800 kilometers of pipelines and laid them at a depth of up to 2,150 meters under the Black Sea during nine months of work. The sea part of the pipeline is to connect the Beregovaya compressor station near Dzhubga on the Russian shore to a compressor station near the city of Samsun on the Turkish shore. The testing of the first line has already been carried out. It is planned that the testing of the second line will occur in the period from September to December 2002. Gas exports from Russia to Turkey through 'Blue Stream' are to be started in October 2002.
