Gazprom to explore expanding pipeline in Austria

Russia could soon begin constructing their South Stream gas pipeline in Austria after meetings were held this week with Gazprom.

The Russian gas giant met in Vienna with Austrian partners on Tuesday, after which the company announced that they had agreed on a way forward to explore pipeline construction in Austria.

"In order to optimize the South Stream project and taking into account the existing portfolio of the Gazprom contracts, we agreed with the proposal of the Austrian side to explore the possibility of constructing the pipeline in Austria under the current intergovernmental agreement, along with the ongoing work on the construction of the pipeline on the territory of Slovenia," says Gazprom head Alexey Miller.

Initial construction plans for the project suggest the gas pipe would arrive in Austria from Hungary on it's way to Slovenia and the final destination in Italy. The pipe, which will have a capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, would come on land in Bulgaria from the Black Sea.

Talks has resumed between Gazprom and Austria in February of this year after a previous project Austria had been involved with - the Nabucco project - failed to win a bid to supply Europe with gas from Azerbaijan.
