Pars gas pipeline construction may begin in 2013

The Pars gas pipeline construction designed to supply Iranian gas to Europe via Turkey could begin in 2013, Turang Transit Transportation, implementing a project in Turkey, told Trend.
"The tender will be announced during the first months of next year to find a contractor to carry out construction work within the project," the company employee dealing with this project Kasim Oztash told Trend.
Oztash stressed that the route of the project, passing through Turkey, will be changed. Thus, the new route of the gas pipeline envisages gas transportation through the Turkish provinces of Gumushane, Kirshehir, Kutahya and Tekirdag. "These changes will reduce the Pars project route and facilitate its implementation," he added. Oztash stressed that the length of the gas pipeline from the eastern border of Turkey to the western will hit 1,750 kilometers. Its capacity is estimated at 35 billion cubic meters of gas. According to recent estimates, the cost of the project hits 5.5 billion euros. All the details of Pars project have been negotiated by the parties," he added. All preliminary work within the project has been completed. The project is being supported by the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Iran's Ministry of Petroleum. They signed an agreement to implement the Pars project on November 17, 2008," Oztash said.
