Azerbaijan, Baku, June 3 / Trend, A.Badalova /
Greece is ready to receive Azerbaijani gas after the signing of a transit agreement between Azerbaijan and Turkey, DEPA Greek Gas Corporation Chairman and Executive Director Harry Sachinis said today at the Seventeenth International Caspian Oil and Gas Conference in Baku.
"After signing the agreement on transit with Turkey, Azerbaijan will be ready to supply gas to Europe. [...] We are ready to receive the Azerbaijani gas, but the question is, in what amount," Sachinis said.
Greece and Turkey share a pipeline through which Azerbaijani gas can be transported, he said.
"We are making efforts to join Greece and Bulgaria [by gas pipeline]," Sachinis said.
He added that Greece may become an energy knot, and he would like to cooperate more closely with Azerbaijan.
"We are a significant player who could contribute to increasing Azerbaijani gas exports to Europe," Sachinis said.
