Gazprom abandons Romanias participation in South Stream.

By bne IntelliNews April 12, 2010
Romania will not replace Bulgaria in South-Stream natural gas pipeline project, but it could have a ramification built either through the sea, or from Bulgaria , Gazprom chairman Aleksei Miller recently said, according to RIA Novosti, quoted by HotNews. We recall that Gazproms officials visited Romania earlier this year when the two parties discussed the possibility of partnership in the South-Stream project. The project is initiated by the Italian group ENI and Gazprom to transport gas from Russia to Europe through the Black Sea, avoiding Ukraine . Gazprom announced in a release released in mid-February this year that Romania confirmed its interest in taking part in South Stream and sent the Russian part the data requested, needed to prepare the feasibility study for a possible route the gas pipe could take, namely through Romania.
