cum arata South Stream in viziunea Gazprom


South Stream


The South Stream project is aimed at strengthening the European energy security. It is another real step toward executing the Gazprom strategy to diversify the Russian natural gas supply routes. The new gas pipeline system meeting the latest environmental and technological requirements will significantly raise the energy supply security of the entire European continent.

South Stream’s offshore section layout


The project provides for South Stream’s offshore section to run under the Black Sea from the Russian coast (Beregovaya compressor station) to the Bulgarian coast. The total length of the offshore section will be around 900 km, maximum depth — over two km and full capacity — 63 bcm. Two possible routes are under review for South Stream’s onshore section from Bulgaria- one, northwestwards and the other, southwestwards.
