Syria-Turkey Gas Pipeline Built by Russians

15 October 2008 , 08:25Ksenia Kochneva1767
Stroitransgaz, a Russian pipeline builder, partly owned by Gazprom, has signed a contract for the construction of a natural gas pipeline from Aleppo, in northern Syria, to the Turkish shore.

The newsmaker is Syrian Oil Minister Sufian al-Alao who commented on this to the Syrian state-run news service Sana.

The deal is worth $71 million. The length of the pipeline will be 62 km. The pipeline is to be built within 18 months.

Syria began receiving gas from Egypt this year through a pipe that crosses Jordan and plans to import gas from Iraq's Akkas field, which is close to the border, by 2010. The Syrian section of the pipeline was also built by Stroitransgaz.

Besides its projects in Syria, Stroitansgaz operates in Saudi Arabia, India and Algeria. It was granted the right to build the pipeline in the UAE in mid-2008.
