Gazprom resumes building offshore part of TurkStream gas pipeline

MOSCOW, Jun 26 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs gas giant Gazprom has resumed construction of the offshore part of the second string of the TurkStream gas pipeline, South Stream Transport subsidiary said in a statement on Tuesday.

УThe Pioneering Spirit vehicle has resumed laying the second string of the TurkStream offshore pipeline toward the Kiyikoy settlement in Turkey.
