Pipeline to Ship Azeri Gas to Central Europe, Balkans, WSJ Says

A planned natural gas pipeline across Turkey will enable developers of the BP Plc-led Shah Deniz project to supply the fuel to Central Europe and the Balkans, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline will split into two at Turkey’s western border, with one branch going to Greece and the other to Bulgaria, the newspaper said, citing Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.
