Turkmenistan intensifies talks on supplying gas to Europe
Turkmenistan is intensifying its work on supplying gas to the European market via the planned Trans-Caspian pipeline, the Turkmen oil and gas ministry said.
"Turkmenistan has proved itself to be a reliable and promising partner in international cooperation, by confirming its status as one of the largest suppliers of gas to the world markets. The national program on energy export diversification envisages developing new routes in the Eastern and European destinations," Trend cited the government's message as saying.
The diversification of Turkmen energy supplies is expected to be discussed during the 7th Turkmenistan Gas Congress, which will be held in Avaza on May 19-20.
Turkmenistan is looking for new sales markets. The best route would be a 300-kilometer long gas pipeline running through the Caspian Sea to the Azerbaijani coast. Azerbaijan is ready to provide its territory, transit opportunities and infrastructure for realization of the project.
