Ukraine will be able to receive gas from Azerbaijan via the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline, running to the EU countries in transit through Bulgaria and Romania. This was reported by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on his Twitter.
"Ukraine will be able to receive gas via the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) through Bulgaria and Romania", - he wrote.
While participating at the ceremony to launch the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline, UNIAN reported, Petro Poroshenko stressed that Ukraine fully supports the TANAP project, which will increase the energy security of Europe.
"From now on, the whole region will receive more security and better energy prospects. As we have seen over the past years, the Russian Federation abused energy resources. The Nord Stream 2 project is an example of such pressure. TANAP is energy security, including of Europe. Ukraine fully supports the TANAP project. This is energy security, including for our state - competitiveness and diversification of gas supplies to Ukraine", - Poroshenko noted.
The Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline is an Azerbaijani gas pipeline through Georgia and Turkey to the Greek border, where the Trans Adriatic Pipeline will continue it. The $9.2 billion pipeline provides for the transportation of gas from the Azerbaijan Shah Deniz gas field from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western border of Turkey. Its construction began in March 2015.
